Player Bio

Made the All-Australian team for the fifth time after another season as the game’s most prolific interceptor.

Is a contested-marking threat and reliable rebounder who can play on a key forward when required.

Often lauded by Damien Hardwick as one of the game’s champions, the defender hasn’t missed a game since early 2016 and remains as the key pillar in Richmond’s backline with opposition teams desperate to keep the ball out of his hands.

Extended his contract until the end of 2021 in July last year.

Playing honours: best and fairest 2015; 2nd best and fairest 2016, 2017; All-Australian 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 (captain), 2018; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 31.
Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Richmond) No. 18 overall.
