Player Bio

After a brief stint as a midfielder in 2017, the courageous defender has flourished in his familiar half-back role.

Was ranked second at the Tigers and eighth in the AFL for intercept possessions last season and has shown over his six-year career he’s not afraid to put his head over the ball or run back with the flight.

Brave, uncompromising and tough, he is an important cog in the Tigers’ back six.

Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 2; career votes 3.
