Player Bio

After an excellent start to the 2013 season, the skilful and pacy midfielder missed six games because of a stress reaction in his right foot. Quick to regain form, he played every game after round 12 but suffered a hamstring injury early in the elimination final against Carlton. Predominantly a half-back in his first two seasons, the West Australian has graduated to the midfield.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 1.

Draft history: 2010  AFL Draft 1st round selection
(Richmond) No. 6 overall.
