Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 6; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne).
Recruited from: Aspley (NEAFL)

Wagner found it a little tougher to break into Melbourne’s side following his first season in 2016 that yielded 14 games after being elevated off the rookie list. The mobile defender still played nine games, but was not selected for the first six. His VFL form was strong, but with Neville Jetta, Michael Hibberd and Jayden Hunt performing at a high level, Wagner found himself in and out of the team. Will be looking to push his name up in front of the selectors on the back of a big pre-season.
