Player Bio

At a glance

Draft: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round father-son selection (Melbourne) No. 26 overall.
Recruited from: Ashburton (Vic)/Carey Gram (Vic)/Oakleigh U18/Casey (VFL)

In typical fashion, the hard-as-nails midfielder missed four matches through injury but still finished runner-up in the best and fairest to Clayton Oliver. Was elevated to the co-captaincy, emphasising the respect he commands at the club. Averaged 23 disposals and 5.4 clearances a game and leads from the front in his actions and want for the contest. An injured foot suffered last season is a little concerning and forced a delayed start to pre-season. However, the Demons are confident he will be up to speed and ready to play in round one.
