Higgins rises with fast finals tempo

You wouldn’t have known it by the cool, calculated, clever way he played, but Jack Higgins was a tad unnerved going into his first final, and during the opening few minutes of last night’s qualifying final against Hawthorn.

Player Bio

A dynamic half-forward/midfielder, Higgins enjoyed an outstanding draft year, winning the Morrish Medal as the TAC Cup’s best and fairest player and Vic Metro’s MVP at the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.

He kicked 31 goals through the TAC Cup season – including a haul of seven – and averaged five tackles, with recruiters believing he was a player capable of slotting in as a small forward before moving into the midfield.

Rated by Champion Data as the No. 1 player in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, the Tigers were thrilled to see the natural footballer slide late in the first round.

Draft history: Draft history: 2017 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 17 overall.
