Player Bio

The speedy small man was stationed down back for the majority of last season before losing his spot after round 18 when Bachar Houli returned from a suspension.

Used as a lockdown small defender in 2017, he can also offer run out of the back half and is a long kick. A rookie success story, he worked hard for his chance after being recruited as a small forward.

Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 11; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
