Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2011 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Essendon) No. 4 overall.
Previous AFL club: Essendon (2011-15: 84 games).
Recruited from: Somerville (Vic)/Dandenong U18/Frankston (VFL)/Essendon

After missing the first month of the year with an achilles complaint, Hibberd was one of the recruits of the season. The attacking defender earned his first All-Australian selection, ranking No. 2 in the AFL for average rebound 50s a game (6.8). Also averaged a career-high 27.4 disposals as his long kicking and courage to consistently back into packs came to the fore. Finished sixth in the best and fairest, but that could easily have been higher considering his worth to the side.
