Continued to show why he was one of the best young midfielders in the league, pulling off an outstanding year that saw him ranked among the top four in the AFL for disposals, contested posessions and clearances. Oliver was rewarded for his 2018 with a well deserved All Australian blazer. Had a slow start to the 2019 pre-season due to surgery on both of his shoulders.
