Player Bio

After a slow start to the season in a new midfield role and a shoulder injury that kept him out of the senior team for nine weeks, Vlastuin returned in his customary small defender position in round 17 and was a crucial player in the run to the premiership.

An architect off half-back when left loose, he can shut down an opponent when required and is tough as teak. He proved he is made for finals football, rising at critical moments last year.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2013; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 1.
Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 9 overall.
