Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Melbourne) No. 51 overall; 2014 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 50; 2014 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne).
Recruited from: Carey Park (WA)/Swan Districts (WAFL)

Jetta finally started to receive the credit he deserved in 2017. The small defender was an All-Australian nominee and enjoyed a consistent season. Is an excellent one-on-one defender and showed an ability to stand up in big moments. Has vastly improved the attacking side of his game over recent years.  With Melbourne building towards finals, Jetta looms as an important figure.
