Player Bio

At a glance

Draft history: 2012 Rookie Draft selection (GWS Giants) No. 1; 2012 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (GWS Giants) selection No. 83.
Previous AFL club: GWS Giants (2012-14: 21 games).
Recruited from: Ormond (Vic)/Wesley College (Vic)/Sandr U18/GWS Giants

After dealing with a pre-season toe complaint, the key defender took significant steps in his development in 2017. Played some of the most consistent football of his career in a patch between rounds four and eight, where his willingness to take the game on from defence became integral to Melbourne’s side. However, he ended the year in the VFL as the Demons decided to go smaller in defence and will be looking to reclaim his spot in the best 22 in 2018.
