Player Bio

After 232 games, the former captain played his first final in 2013, ending a 13-year drought in one of the feel-good stories of the season. A right ankle injury almost derailed those plans,
but Newman capped a strong season on the September stage. Creative across half-back where he often creates play with his precise left foot, the veteran played 19 games last year and
remains a valued leader. 

Player honours: 2nd best and fairest 2010; 3rd best and fairest, 2009; International Rules Series 2005; Club captain 2009-12.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 17.
Draft history: 2000 National AFL Draft 4th round selection (Richmond) No. 55 overall.
