Outlook

The small defender had an excellent season, which was rewarded with a two-year contract extension. The son of former Geelong and Brisbane player Andrew, he solidified his spot in the side with 19 games, including three finals, and had good games against dangerous small forwards such as Devon Smith, Eddie Betts and Jamie Elliott. A former junior national pole vault champion, Bews offered more than just a defensive option in 2017 after developing his attacking game in the pre-season.

Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 5th round father-son selection (Geelong) No. 86 overall.
