Player Bio

Again proved he’s as impressive on the field as he is off it.

His leadership grew in spades in 2017 and he took it to another level last season, with several players applauding his ability to know what they needed, when they needed it.

Was unlucky not to feature in the All-Australian team after being at the coalface of the Tigers’ engine for much of the year when he finished second at the club for clearances and tackles.

Extended his contract until the end of 2022, all but ensuring he’ll be a Tiger for life.
