Debut: 2010
Recruited from: West Adelaide
Brownlow Votes: 4

The former Saint was in and out of the side during 2018 with form, team balance and periodic injuries affecting his continuity. The speedy 200cm ruckman hit form in the middle of the 2018 season but was struck down by a calf injury putting a stoppage to his chances of playing finals. A career highlight challenging with Melbourne’s Max Gawn in round 18 of 2018, the ruckman made his mark with a season best performance.
