Player Bio

The fairytale story of last year’s finals, Townsend was planning his life after football before he was called up for the round 22 clash against Fremantle.

He booted six goals in that match and five in the next to cement his spot in the team as a hard-bodied medium forward. He can be used in shutdown roles on creative defenders or in the mid eld if needed.

Player honours: premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 1.
Previous AFL club: GWS Giants (2012-15: 28 games, 4 goals). Draft history: 2011 NSW-ACT zone selection (GWS Giants); 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by GWS Giants for 4th round selection (not utilised).
