Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 2; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne).
Recruited from: Tathra (NSW)/Ainslie (NEAFL)

Missed the 2017 season after suffering a stress fracture in his heel, which first flared in March. He suffered a setback in his recovery in May and the Demons ruled him out of action for another two months. By August, Melbourne had put a line through him for the season. Has not played since round 23, 2016, so in the final year of his contract will be looking to get back on the park and find some continuity.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 3.
Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 2; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne).
