A fierce tackler who isn’t afraid to win the contested ball, the avid cyclist and elite runner can also sneak forward to kick a goal. The surprisingly experienced 50 game player has supported the midfield’s depth during the 2018 season and has shown continual improving. His footy smarts, skill and leadership far exceed his game count, and he is locked in to play in the hoops until 2020.
