Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Melbourne) No. 40 overall.
Recruited from: Plympton (SA)/Glenelg (SANFL)

Neal-Bullen was one of the most improved players at Melbourne in 2017. The half-forward played 19 games, the most of his career, averaging a personal-best 18.9 disposals and kicking 15 goals. The 21-year-old’s work rate is his standout quality. He gets to a lot of contests and the Demons value the role he plays. May spend more time in the midfield in 2018 as Melbourne tries to add players to its on-ball core.
