Player Bio

The rebounding defender experienced dramatic highs and lows in 2017, copping a controversial four-match suspension for striking before playing a leading role in the Grand Final triumph, earning 10 votes to finish runner-up in the Norm Smith Medal.

He played his best football in the middle of the season, sharing rebounding duties with Brandon Ellis and Nick Vlastuin.

Ranked top four for metres gained at the club, his ability to gain territory and pump the ball into the forward half is a key to the Tigers’ game. Player honours: premiership side 2017.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 12.
Previous AFL club: Essendon (2007-10: 26 games, 9 goals).
Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Essendon) No. 42 overall; 2011 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 3 overall.
