Player Bio

The least heralded of the Tigers’ three key defenders but by no means the least important.

Isn’t prolific on the stats sheet, nor is he a flashy standout, but he consistently gets the job done against opponents big and small.

Is rarely scored against and last year made his first All-Australian squad for his reliable, uncompromising style, which was on show in the first final when he held Paul Puopolo goalless before a tireless performance in the preliminary final.

Shunned free agency in early 2018 when he signed a three-year extension to lock him in until 2021.

Player honours: All-Australian nominee 2018; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2012; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 2 overall.
