Player Bio

The oldest player on Melbourne’s list divided his time between half-back and run-with roles in the midfield in 2017. The 32-year-old averaged 21.2 disposals a game, with his experience and classy ball use influential. The veteran was suspended for three matches, but seemed to thrive in a tagging role where he was quick to get underneath his opponent’s skin. Likely to be his final season.
