Player Bio

Enjoyed the best of his three seasons at Richmond last year, playing every game and finishing equal sixth in the best and fairest.

A tough small defender, the Tigers have considered playing him as the big-bodied midfielder they’ve needed, but his fine performances as a defender is likely to see him settle down back.

A steady hand who works hard both ways.
