Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Girrawheen-Koomdoola (WA)
Debut: Round 7, 2013
Recruited from: East Perth (WA)
Brownlow Votes: 2

The hard-working midfielder had arguably his best season in 2018, playing 20 games, a career-best return, and playing a key role in the Eagles' premiership win. Kept some of the league's best players quiet in his role as tagger throughout the year, perhaps none better than his jobs in the preliminary final on Jack Viney and in the grand final on Steele Sidebottom. His hard-running, tackling and selflessness are always at the fore and is now a key player in the Eagles' midfield unit.
