Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Mt Gravatt (QLD)
Clubs: Brisbane Lions
Debut: 2004
Recruited from: Brisbane Lions
Brownlow Votes: -

With the departure of Jared Rivers, Macdonald adds depth to the Demons’ defence. He had an improved second half of the season after battling early with his ball-handling and disposal. However, the 28-year-old has a strong body, provides invaluable experience and is courageous. Those attributes have helped him secure another contract.

Previous AFL club: Brisbane Lions (2004-09: 80 games, 6 goals).

Brownlow Medal: career votes 1.

Draft history: 2003 Rookie Draft selection (Brisbane Lions) No. 70; 2003 rookie elevation (Brisbane Lions); 2010 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 1 overall.
