Player Bio

Joined Melbourne in November as a delisted free agent after finding it tough to push his way into Port Adelaide’s excellent midfield. He played four games in 2014, after making his debut in round seven last year. He spent four years at Port Adelaide, battling with injury in his first two seasons and then struggling for opportunity in the next two. He played well in the SANFL, is a quality player and should flourish in a new environment.

Previous AFL club: Port Adelaide (2010-14: 4 games, 0 goals).

Draft history:
2010 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Port Adelaide) No. 35 overall; 2014 delisted free agent (Melbourne).
