Player Bio

A second impressive season for the former Hawthorn and Fremantle rookie, who was rewarded for his consistency with a new three-year deal that locks him in until 2020. Was in the team for most of the season, but his form late in the year showed the Cats’ midfield bats deeper than many thought. 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. Finished sixth in the best and fairest.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 6; career votes 8.

Draft history: 2011 Rookie Draft selection (Hawthorn) No. 19; 2012 Rookie Draft selection (Fremantle) No. 44; 2015 NAB AFL Draft 5th round selection (Geelong) No. 66 overall.
