The Peel Thunder product only arrived at the club via pick No.57 in last December’s national draft but didn't have to wait long for an AFL debut, coming on as the medical sub in round four against St Kilda.
A week after booting five goals in the opening round of the WAFL campaign, the speedy small was thrust into the action at Marvel Stadium during the first quarter when veteran Shannon Hurn suffered a calf injury and made a quick impact, snapping his first goal in the opening minutes of the second term.
After a broken passage of play with the ball bobbling around West Coast’s forward 50m, the Eagles’ pressure eventually told and Bradley Hill turned the ball over in the goalsquare for Josh Kennedy to pounce and tap the ball to Winder, who celebrate gleefully after snapping truly.
Unfortunately, that was his last match at any level for three months due to a knee injury sustained a training, although he managed eight WAFL appearances to finish the season, averaging 16 disposals and kicking eight goals in his nine games for the year.
