Player Bio

More often than not is given the task of holding the opposition’s best forward or resting ruckman to allow Alex Rance freedom, and usually wins his battle or at least holds his own.

Was important in the qualifying final against Jarryd Roughead, but played in the preliminary final under duress after battling a virus that required hospital treatment for rehydration.

Crucial to the Tigers’ structure and is strong enough to go with the big forwards in the air and on the lead.

Player honours: premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 1; career votes 1.
Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Richmond) No. 35 overall.
