Player Bio

Was the victim of the Tigers’ blessed run with injuries last year when he was squeezed out of the team three times.

The premiership forward played 10 AFL games before breaking a lower leg in the final VFL game of the year. Tested his value on the open market as a delisted free agent, but was welcomed back to Punt Rd when opportunities didn’t present.

Will start pre-season slowly as his leg mends.

Player honours: Liston Trophy 2017; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 1.
Previous AFL club: GWS Giants (2012-15: 28 games, 4 goals).
Draft history: 2011 NSW-ACT zone selection (GWS Giants); 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by GWS Giants for 4th round selection (not utilised); 2019 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 32.
