Player Bio

A prolific midfielder who has been struck down by knee injuries the past two seasons, Prestia is due for a change of luck at a new club.

Crossed from Gold Coast at the end of last season after 95 games in six years.

He was highly sought by the Tigers, who offered him a five-year deal and gave up their prized No. 6 pick to bring the ball-winner into their midfield, where he will be a key player.

Playing honours: Gold Coast 2nd best and fairest 2013; Gold Coast 3rd best and fairest 2014.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 23.
Previous AFL club: Gold Coast (2011-16: 95 games, 30 goals).
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 9 overall; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Gold Coast for No. 7 (Jack Scrimshaw), 2017 2nd round selection.
