Player Bio

Like teammate Dion Prestia, had a limited pre-season that came back to haunt him mid-year when he was cut down by a groin injury that cost him eight games.

Returned in round 21 and made an instant impression after a solid training block.Didn’t tackle as much but was again important to the way the Tigers set up off half-back with his rebound, class and ability to run and carry.

Signed a one-year extension last September to take him into his 13th season.

Player honours: premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 12.
Previous AFL club: Essendon (2007-10: 26 games, 9 goals).
Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Essendon) No. 42 overall; 2011 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 3 overall.
