Player Bio

Max Gawn’s emergence and Melbourne’s preference to stick with one ruckman meant Spencer did not play a game at AFL level in 2016. The big man missed the rst ve weeks with an injured foot, but played out the remainder of the year in the VFL. With young ruckman Mitch King working his way back from a knee reconstruction, Spencer remains in the back-up ruck slot. Contracted until the end of 2017.

Draft history: 2008 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 35; 2010 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne) selection No. 96.
