Despite being hampered by injuries at times throughout 2014, the key forward was still able to kick 34 goals in 14 appearances, including 5.3 in the round 11 match against Geelong. With an injury-free pre-season, Tippett will be raring to go in 2015 as he looks to divide his time between the key forward post and the ruck.

Previous AFL club: Adelaide Crows (2008-12: 104 games, 188 goals).

Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Adelaide) No. 32 overall; 2013 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 11 overall.
