Meet the Draftees: Brant Colledge
The 192cm utility was taken with West Coast's first selection in the 2012 NAB AFL draft
Brant Colledge - Selection No. 45 DOB: 25 Oct 1994 Height: 191cm Weight: 83kg Recruited: Perth State: WA
West Coast List Manager Craig Vozzo says: “He's a 192cm mobile utility. He's played majority forward but potentially can play back as well in that third tall mold. He's a really good young man who we ranked quite highly, so we're delighted he was available at our pick. He was someone we tracked through the entire year. I think he'll be more of a development player, but he's a really good young man and he's fairly physically developed. He had a bad ankle injury this year. He'll take a little bit of time, but not all that long. And he'll be knocking the door down, I'm sure.
Colledge on joining West Coast: “It’s really exciting. It’s great to stay and W.A and be at a great club like the Eagles. There’s a lot of young talent that will hopefully push for a premiership in the near future, so hopefully I can learn from them and be a part of some of that success.”
Colledge on his own game: “I think I’m just a committed, competitive type of guy. I think I can bring some intangibles & attributes like that to the club.”
