Player Bio

The skipper grew immensely as a player and a leader in 2017, enjoying arguably his finest season.

A defining moment came when he poured his heart out to teammates ahead of the season and he is now leading in an authentic way as one of the game’s best captains.

He set the tone for his teammates defensively, averaging a career-high 5.56 tackles a game, and maintained the ability to turn a game himself.

He was the perfect midfield sidekick for Dustin Martin.
