Player Bio

Struggled to establish himself in the team at the start of the year, but found his niche as a goalkicking forward who applied plenty of pressure on the opposition. His three goals in the first quarter against St Kilda in round 21 was an illustration of what he can do at his best – he just needs to find a more consistency to become a certain selection every week. His desire and work rate can’t be questioned.

Player honours: AFL Rising Star nominee 2016.
Brownlow medal: career votes 2.
Draft history: 2014 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 2; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne).
