The defender was considered unlucky to miss out on All-Australian selection after another solid season at Melbourne as a lockdown defender. Jetta is one of Melbourne's most reliable players and elevated his standing in the 2018 finals campaign. Jetta was newly added into Melbourne's leadership group for the 2019 season.
