Player Bio

It was an interesting 2018 season from the premiership forward.

It seemed at times he was just going, but the numbers proved he was just as effective in front of goal.

Missed two games mid-season with a knee injury that appeared to linger after his return. Was part of the dangerous mosquito fleet for the second year running and recorded the second-most inside-50 tackles at the club.

Is contracted until the end of 2019.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2017; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 29; 2017 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
