A courageous and composed defender with pace and an excellent work rate. Ramsay broke into the senior side for the first time in the penultimate round of 2014. It followed several weeks of consistent football in the VFL, where he successfully blanketed some of the state league's best small forwards. The second youngest player on an AFL list in his debut year, Ramsay's discipline and tenacity at the contest has made him an important part of the Collingwood VFL side in recent years. Only injuries have held him back, shin complaints curtailing his 2015 campaign and a knee reconstructing cutting his 2016 short after just two rounds. Will be hoping for a clear run at it for 2017 and beyond.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Injuries have been a common theme throughout Ramsay’s first four years at the Holden Centre, but 2016 delivered the worst of them: a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The injury was suffered during a training session ahead of round three and brought his year to a premature end. The timing could not have been worse, for he had enjoyed a fine pre-season after overcoming the shin complaints that ruined his 2016. He had begun the season proper well, too, averaging 21 disposals and four rebounds in the opening fortnight. All involved at Magpieland will be hoping Ramsay can finally enjoy an injury free season and cement himself in Nathan Buckley’s line up.

Season By Season

After the most promising start imaginable, Ramsay’s 2015 campaign was cut short just as his momentum was reaching its peak.

A strong pre-season from Ramsay meant that by the time round one came round, the 20-year-old had a place secured in Collingwood’s starting 22. Pushing up from the backline, he recorded a career-high 20 disposals in round two against Adelaide, before following the performance up with a game against St Kilda in round three which included another career-high, this time in contested possessions (11).

While an extended stretch in the side beckoned, shin complaints sidelined Ramsay after the Magpies’ round five victory over Carlton. The injury wasn’t thought to be severe, with Director of Football Neil Balme originally stating in the wake of the Carlton game “we’re hoping for him to get up this week”. It wasn’t to be for the medium-sized defender, who wouldn’t be sighted in the black and white for the remainder of the season.

While these complications led to a frustrating year for Ramsay, his early form signalled that a place in the side will be once again up for grabs in 2016. 

Season By Season

The young West Australian made considerable progress in his second season on the senior list, breaking into the senior side for his league debut in the penultimate round.

He began the year in the NAB Challenge squad, laying 11 tackles in the first two games.

Returning to the VFL for the home and away season, Ramsay was a solid performer all season long. He regularly negated his direct opponent in the back pocket and began to lift his disposal count as the year wore on.

Ranked equal first for bounces and seventh for tackles among the VFL Magpies, Ramsay received his first senior appointment when the team travelled to western Sydney in round 22.

He performed credibly, winning 12 tackles and laying four tackles on debut before following that with 10 disposals in the final round against Hawthorn.

Season By Season

Began the year as the second youngest player on an AFL list but would surely rank as one of the game’s most enthusiastic and dedicated youngsters. Looked a likely type with five early possessions in the first VFL game of the season against North Ballarat before succumbing to a fractured wrist. He was placed on the long-term injury list and was forced to wait until June to make his return. Ramsay’s patience was rewarded when he collected a season-high 26 possessions and 10 marks against Box Hill in round 13 and he followed it up with a great goal from 50m out in wet conditions against Geelong a week later. He didn’t miss a game in the second half of the season and impressed greatly with his attack on the ball and ability to follow instructions at half back. He also showed his coaches that he knows where the goals are, snagging two during a venture into attack against Sandringham. Ramsay didn’t lower his colours in the loss to Port Melbourne in the Elimination Final, adding seven tackles, four spoils and four rebounds to his 14 possessions.

Season By Season

The West Australian defender’s past two seasons were hampered by injury - two broken collarbones in 2011 and a toe issue last year - but he impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail and found his way on to an AFL list. Has good endurance and work rate and can also play forward and in the midfield.
