Player Bio

The Tigers’ second-most prolific goalkicker made the All-Australian squad for a season in which he stood up as a marking target inside 50.

Looked to have found his home alongside Jack Riewoldt despite being recruited as a midfielder and offered a sometimes-fiery spark to Richmond’s attacking structure. Other than a quiet preliminary final, he had an impressive year.

Is contracted until the end of 2020.

Playing honours: All-Australian nominee 2018; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2012; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 6; career votes 17.
Previous AFL clubs: Gold Coast (2011-12: 24 games, 17 goals); Geelong (2013-16: 71 games, 59 goals).
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 7 overall; 2012 NAB AFL Draft traded by Gold Coast for 2010 round one compensation selection (Gary Ablett) and selection No. 57 (Kyal Horsley); 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Geelong for No. 26 (Brandan Parfitt), No. 60 (Quinton Narkle).
