Player Bio

After starting with such promise, last year was a season to forget for the key defender. Talia started the season against Collingwood in Round 1, but suffered a serious foot injury and didn’t play again at any level. An off-field indiscretion mid-year saw the 23-year-old suspended by the Club. Will be keen to bounce back with a big pre-season to start the new year on the right note.

Draft history: 2011 AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Western Bulldogs) No. 39 overall; 2015 AFL Draft traded by Western Bulldogs for 2015 4th round selection and 2016 4th round selection.
