Player Bio

The importance of the man they call ‘Meatball’ was evident at times last season when he was sidelined with soft-tissue injuries.

Despite a limited pre-season costing him the first three games, followed by a mid-season calf injury causing a second body breakdown, he got himself right as finals approached.

The hard-bodied midfielder adds both silk and grunt at the stoppages and allows Dustin Martin in particular to spend
more time forward.

Playing honours: Gold Coast 2nd best and fairest 2013;
Gold Coast 3rd best and fairest 2014; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 3; career votes 31.
Previous AFL club: Gold Coast (2011-16: 95 games, 30 goals).
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 9 overall; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Gold Coast for No. 7 (Jack Scrimshaw), 2017 2nd round selection (Tim Kelly).
