Player Bio

The Tigers landed the off-season’s biggest signing with a seven-year contract and the lure of playing in front of big crowds alongside Jack Riewoldt.

The former Gold Coast co-captain hasn’t been at his best for two seasons because of knee issues; the most recent needing surgery in July last year, which will delay the start of his pre-season. When fit, is a powerful contested-marking beast who is also a dangerous threat on the lead.

Will be desperate to get back to his blistering 2016 form and make a big impression at his new home.

Player honours: Gold Coast best and fairest 2015, 2016; Gold Coast 2nd best and fairest 2014; All-Australian 2016; Gold Coast leading goalkicker 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017; Gold Coast co-captain 2017-18.
Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 5; career votes 32.
Previous AFL club: Gold Coast (2011-18: 131 games, 254 goals). Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 11 overall.
