Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2010 NT Priority Zone selection (Gold Coast).
Previous AFL clubs: Gold Coast (2011-18: 123 games).
Recruited from: Southern Districts (NT)/Gold Coast

Standing at 193cm tall, May is set to add a strong and steady presence down back, with intercept-marking and precise timing a key skill of the 26-year-old’s game. The big-bodied defender added 17 matches to his 123-game tally in 2018 – May missed four matches due to injury and one through suspension – and averaged 17.4 possessions. May also brings invaluable experience to the club, having co-captained Gold Coast in the past two seasons and been part of the leadership group since 2015.
