Had his best season at AFL level in 2017 and was rewarded with the John Worsfold Medal and his first All Australian jacket. Was moved to half-back by Adam Simpson and was dominant alongside fellow All Australian Jeremy McGovern. Reached career-high averages for disposals, kicks, marks, rebound 50s, contested & uncontested possessions and will look to establish his star-status further in the coming years.
