Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Scotch College
Debut: 2010
Recruited from: Oakleigh Chargers
Brownlow Votes: -

He shapes as a half-back flanker, but has not found the consistency to string games together. He is a good ball user, but his decision-making can improve. Strauss fell behind Dean Terlich last season, so he faces a big pre-season to regain ground. Had a shoulder reconstruction post-season, but was back running at the start of pre-season. Strauss has overcome setbacks, including a broken leg in 2011, but this year will be important.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Melbourne) No. 19 overall.
