Player Bio

Played the first four games of last season before being dropped back to the VFL. Could not quite find his feet at AFL level, with the young forward booting just three goals in his seven matches. Melbourne has been careful not to rush him, although a six-goal burst (five in the first half) against Box Hill in the VFL provided a glimpse of his talent. Needs to continue to add muscle mass to his skinny frame to better cope with the demands of AFL football. Off-season ankle surgery meant a delayed start to
his pre-season.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 9 overall.
