Endured a frustrating 2018 season, missing 15 games through a foot injury. But his inspirational return in the finals series underlined his importance to the team and set the tone for Melbourne's chaotic brand of football. His best-on-ground semi final performance against Hawthorn was a great example of Viney's toughness and mental fortitude. Is at full fitness heading into 2019 and will look to put his injury woes behind him.
