Player Bio

Again one of the Tigers’ leading ball-winners last season, the wingman can be relied on to win the ball consistently and pump it inside 50.

He spends less time in the centre square now, but his selfless traits are still valuable for his fellow midfielders.

Can run all day and is committed to the defensive side of the game, with the Tigers recognising his role with a sixth placing in the best and fairest.

Player honours: International Rules Series 2011; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2008; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 7; career votes 25.
Previous AFL club: Carlton (2007-10: 43 games, 10 goals).
Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Carlton) No. 19 overall; 2010 NAB AFL Draft traded by Carlton for Andrew Collins.
