Player Bio

A father-son recruit in 2016 (his dad Sean played 114 games for the Cats from 1991-98), the lightly built wingman was promoted mid-season after strong form in the VFL. Made his debut against the Giants in round 15 and had 13 disposals. Played another four games before season’s end. Has shown he possesses creativity, but a summer in the gym will help his cause.

Draft history: 2017 Rookie Draft father-selection (Geelong) No. 53.
