The key defender spent the first half of the 2018 season in the VFL, refining his contested work. Jake Lever's injury saw Frost rewarded with a call up and the athletic backman was solid in Melbourne's run home and finals campaign. With the arrival of Steven May and return of Jake Lever, Frost will have plenty of competition this year down back.
