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.
