Recruited from: Oakleigh Chargers (VIC)
Brownlow Votes: 79

The running-machine took his game to a new level in 2018. Spent more time inside the contest than years previous, and was a far more damaging player forward of centre, setting new career benchmarks for disposals, goals, tackles, clearances and contested possessions per game. Missed the Eagles premiership run due to suspension but earned his second All Australian blazer at season's end and finished 5th in the 2018 John Worsfold Medal. Dismissed free agency offers to re-sign with the Eagles for 2019 and beyond.
