vandenBerg was one of the comeback stories of 2018, returning after a near two-year absence to play a role in Melbourne's run home and finals series. The tough midfielder/forward brings intensity and tackling pressure to the side, while averaging 15.3 disposals per game in 2018. After speculation of a move away in late 2018, vandenBerg recommitted to Melbourne until the end of the 2021 season.
