Player Bio

Struggled to back up his impressive debut season, but still played 20 games despite a few minor injuries. Played across half-back and did well against the likes of Mitch Robinson and Luke Shuey, but also experienced more midfield time, which will help him develop further as he builds his running capabilities.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2013.

Brownlow Medal: Career votes 1.

Draft history: 2012 AFL Draft 1st round selection
(Richmond) No. 9 overall.
