Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Gippsland Power
Debut:
Recruited from: Gippsland Power
Brownlow Votes: 

Papley’s enormous ability as a goal-sneak and immense defensive pressure inside 50 make the 22-year-old a crucial cog in Sydney’s wheel. The combinations between Papley, Will Hayward, Ben Ronke and star forward Lance Franklin continued to blossom in 2018, and coach John Longmire will be wanting that trend to continue in 2019. Papley is also among a recently established eight-man leadership group for 2019.

Draft history: 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 12; 2016 AFL Draft rookie elevation (Sydney).
