At a glance

Junior Clubs: St Mary's (VIC)
Debut: Round 1, 2015
Recruited from: Geelong Falcons (VIC)
Brownlow Votes: -

Medium sized defender who had an up and down season in 2018. Started the year in the side, before losing his place and not playing after round 14, finishing on 10 games. Reads the play well and is an effective user on both sides of his body. Can play in the midfield and will be looking to cement a position in the side in 2019.
