The young defender is looking to build on a strong 2017 season in which he debuted against the Giants in Round 5. Arguably his most impressive outing at senior level came in Round 18, when he kept St Kilda great Nick Riewoldt to just 10 disposals to earn an AFL Rising Star nomination. He took out the club’s Rising Star award in 2017.
