Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Golden Grove
Clubs:
Geelong
Debut:
2010
Recruited from: Central Districts
Brownlow Votes: 3

Outlook

Had a clean run with his body for the second successive year and played 18 games, but fell out of favour ahead of the qualifying final and was omitted. Was recalled for the semi-final and kicked two goals, but faded in the preliminary final. Tested his value as an unrestricted free agent, but ended up signing a one-year deal with the Cats. An accurate and dangerous goalkicker and remains a feel-good story after coming back from four knee reconstructions.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011.

Brownlow Medal: Career votes 3.

Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Geelong) No. 17 overall.
