Player Bio

The zippy youngster impressed over summer and played the first two AFL games of the 2018 season with Daniel Rioli sidelined but didn’t hold his spot.

Broke through for another game later in the year because of some eye-catching VFL form before a knee injury ended his season early.

After signing a one-year extension post-season, must take his chances in 2019 either up forward, through the midfield or potentially in defence.

Draft history: 2016 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Richmond) No. 29 overall.
