Player Bio

A hard-bodied midfielder, Prestia added depth to Richmond’s centre square rotations in 2017 and allowed others to push forward.

He managed ankle troubles and his form was inconsistent as a result, but he hit the finals in fine touch and became a premiership Tiger.

Was used as a run-with player at stages, knowing he can still win enough of his own football to be damaging offensively.

Playing honours: Gold Coast 2nd best and fairest 2013; Gold Coast 3rd best and fairest 2014; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 5; career votes 28.
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.
