After a frustrating, injury-interrupted 2018, Stretch has driven high standards on the track in the off-season. His biggest weapon is his running and ability to get to contests, with Stretch likely to serve a role on the wing when called up. Stretch is the son of former Melbourne player Steven and was recruited as a father-son selection.
