Player Bio

At a glance

Draft history: 2009 Rookie Draft selection (Carlton) No. 6; 2010 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Carlton) selection No. 85.
Previous AFL club: Carlton (2009-14: 107 games).
Recruited from: Burracoppin (WA)/Swan Districts (WAFL)/Carlton

Enjoyed an excellent season – clearly one of the best of his career. He kicked a club-leading 42 goals, 16 more than the next best (Christian Petracca) and was a consistent threat as one of the AFL’s most damaging small forwards. His forward pressure makes defenders nervous and when he’s on the burst inside 50 he is difficult to stop.
