Player Bio

Was playing an important role as a pressure forward until his season was turned upside down following a six-game suspension for striking Sydney’s Callum Mills in round 15. His actions were widely condemned and he did not play a senior game thereafter. Bugg expressed remorse and flagged the need to better channel his aggression. Sought to win back the respect of coach Simon Goodwin and teammates and was put through a gruelling fitness campaign while ineligible to play. Will be looking to use that fitness base to spur him on in 2018.
