Player Bio

After suffering repeated knee issues in his debut season, the small forward finally played regular VFL football in 2016.

Boasting pace to burst out of stoppages and goal-sense, the North Ballarat product is yet to make his debut at AFL level but is a promising prospect the Tigers are keen to develop.

Draft history: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Richmond) No. 67 overall.
