Struggled to adapt to a new defensive system at Melbourne, but soon found his feet after the first month of the season. Performed well in the Round 10 demolition of his former side, Adelaide while earning a Brownlow vote in Round 9 against Carlton. Just as he found form however, an ACL injury in Round 11 saw him sidelined for the entire season. Travelled to the USA at the beginning of 2019 in an attempt to fast track his rehab.
