Player Bio

Played across half-back early in the year and managed seven senior games to round 12. Was then thrown around a bit in the VFL before being settled across half-forward, where he played out the year and was solid in the role. Has a beautiful kick and makes good decisions, which puts him in the frame to compete for a spot in the seniors after signing a one-year extension. 

Draft history: 2012 AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Richmond) No. 42 overall.
