At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Colac

Last year was another season of development for the talented utility, who again showed all the attributes of a regular senior player. Had over 20 possessions and kicked two goals on three separate occasions to give the AFL world a taste of what he’s capable of. Consistency will be the key focus for the 26-year-old in 2017.
