Player Bio

Turned the heartache of being an emergency for the 2017 Grand Final into motivation that enabled him to become one of the AFL’s most improved players last season.

The running defender can hit targets on both sides, has a lovely long kick and often runs past a teammate lining up for goal to pump a booming shot in from outside 50. Led the AFL for metres gained, so significant was his ability to repel off half-back, and was equal sixth for bounces.

Signed a two-year extension in April that locks him in until at least the end of 2020.

Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 1; career votes 1.
Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 11; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
