Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Geelong Falcons
Clubs: Geelong
Debut: 2017
Recruited from: Geelong Falcons

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-2017 after strong form in the VFL playing a total of five games before 2017 season’s end. However he only managed one game in 2018 in round 17 against Adelaide. Has shown he possesses creativity, but a summer in the gym may help his cause.
