Outlook

The developing key defender has bided his time at full-back in the VFL in his two years at the club. Played 17 games in 2017, adding to his experience with match-ups against the likes of Travis Cloke and Jesse White. Has signed a one-year contract extension, and with the retirements of Tom Lonergan and Andrew Mackie, has an opportunity to push into the AFL side in 2018.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Geelong) No. 59 overall.
