Player Bio

The speedster helped transform the Tigers’ game in 2017, with his tackling pressure important in a small forward line.

He made his debut in round one and played all but two games. Injured for all of 2015 and kept in the VFL during 2016, the North Ballarat product came of age last season and showed the ability to bob up at important times and impact games with a dangerous burst.

Finished equal eighth in the best and fairest.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2017; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Richmond) No. 67 overall.
