Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: 
Debut: 2011
Recruited from: North Adelaide
Brownlow Votes: -

His best football at AFL level was at half-back before a hamstring injury in 2011 set him back. Tough and big-bodied, Tapscott has been tried as a defensive half-forward and shows talent in bursts. He often prefers to have an impact on the contest rather than use his smarts to win the ball and he can struggle to see out games, despite being a reasonable runner. However, he is just 22 and has 45 games’ experience, so now is his time to shine.

Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Melbourne) No. 18 overall.
