Player Bio

After four seasons in the yellow and black, Vlastuin is settled as a defender and the Tigers rely on him to shut down dangerous goalsneaks.

Recruited as a midfielder, he has been deployed up the ground at times, but will likely remain in defence after the Tigers acquired midfielders Dion Prestia and Josh Caddy.

With leadership qualities and a steady hand, he has set the foundations for a long career.

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