Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Mornington
Debut: -
Recruited from: Frankston Dolphins (VFL)
Brownlow Votes: -

The highly skilled left-footer impressed in last year’s pre-season competition, but despite his brilliant form in the NEAFL, where he was rewarded with a spot in the Team of the Year, couldn’t earn himself senior elevation until season’s end. He averaged 28 disposals a game in the reserves and was adjudged best afield in the NEAFL Grand Final loss to GWS. On the cusp of his first AFL game in 2017.

Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 35; 2016 AFL Draft rookie elevation (Sydney).
