Outlook

The unique talent comes with the endurance of a midfielder, the size to offer something as a back-up ruckman and the nous to play on some of the AFL’s best players. Missed five games late in the season with a cracked tibia after battling knee tendinitis but returned in time for the finals and play an enormous role in stopping Sydney captain Josh Kennedy in the semi-final. Climbed to Mt Everest base camp in the off-season to raise money for charity and is contracted until the end of this season.

Player honours: Best and fairest 2015.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 6.

Draft history: 2012 Rookie Draft three-year non-registered selection (Geelong) No. 54; 2014 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Geelong).
