Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Attadale (WA)
Debut: 2010
Recruited from: Wesley College
Brownlow Votes: 1

Another strong year for the versatile, attacking defender, playing every game for the third consecutive season. Reads the ball well and is ideally sauited to the Eagles' defensive system. Was ultra-consistent, averaging over 14 disposals and was coach Adam Simpson's go-to man to shut down some of the game's most dangerous forwards.
