Player Bio

Played 20 games in his debut season in 2018, including two finals, and won plenty of hearts with his exuberant goal celebrations and infectious personality.

The dynamic small forward brought pressure, tackles inside 50 and an ability to find the goals, as well as the knack for getting his teammates up and about with his humourous rev-ups during the breaks.

The Tigers were quick to lock him in until 2021, with his fourth-place finish in the NAB AFL Rising Star another nod to his potential.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2018. Draft history: 2017 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 17 overall.
