Player Bio

The young defender took important strides in a more consistent 2017 campaign. Grew in confidence as the season went on, often being charged with the responsibility as Melbourne’s No. 1 key defender with Sam Frost in and out of the side and brother Tom spending time up forward and in the ruck. Showed his courage and defensive intent in important moments and has gone a fair way to improving his disposal. Turns 22 on the eve of the season, so he will continue to get better and Melbourne hopes he can solidify himself as the long-term option at full back.
