Player Bio

One of the AFL’s best recruits of 2017, the tough ruckman’s arrival from Sydney was a blessing for the midfield.

Not afraid to get his hands dirty at stoppages, he can win his own clearances and tackles hard.

He is a double threat, however, with the ability to run hard and present a marking option. Has the ability to carry the ruck for long periods, allowing the Tigers to field an extra running player.

Player honours: premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 2; career votes 2.
Previous AFL club: Sydney (2015-16: 12 games, 3 goals).
Draft history: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Sydney) No. 35 overall; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Sydney for No. 45 (Jack Maibaum).
