Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round father-son selection (Melbourne) No. 42 overall.
Recruited from: Henley (SA)/Glenelg (SANFL)

One of the most professional players at Melbourne, Stretch is a favourite of the coaching staff. However, the running wingman played only nine senior games in 2017 as he fell victim to the club’s depth through the midfield. When given the chance at senior level, Stretch provides the Demons with plenty of drive and has some tricks. The young midfielder, the son of former Melbourne player Steven, just needs to do it with more consistency.
