A number of injuries meant Armstrong had a limited pre-season and was not fully fit for the start of the year at his new club. 

He recovered to make eight appearances for the year, including a 24 possession effort against Essendon in round 11. 

It is no easy task breaking into the AFL’s best backline, but his kicking skills and tackling pressure should lead to more opportunities in 2013.

Previous AFL club: Adelaide (2010-11: 14 games, 0 goals).

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection
(Adelaide) No. 58 overall; 2011 NAB AFL Draft traded by Adelaide for Lewis Johnston.

2013 Coaches Call

2012 was a success. He broke into the side but unfortunately wasn’t there on the last day.

Pre-season has been really good. He’s set up his season this year with a terrific pre-season, with personal best times in the 3km run.

We hope in 2013 that he establishes himself as a regular member of our defence.
