Player Bio

Another impressive season for the inside midfielder as he earned his first All-Australian nomination.

Was the Tigers’ most improved in 2017 and went on with it last year, taking his contested game and work at the stoppages to another level.

Had to overcome a round 21 ankle injury that forced him to miss the last two games of the season, but returned for the first final and made an instant impression with his tackling and contested work.

Is contracted until the end of 2019.

Player honours: 2nd best and fairest 2018; 3rd best and fairest 2017; All-Australian nominee 2018; premiership side 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 12; career votes 14.
Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 46; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
