Brownlow Votes: 9

 

A small forward with incredible strength and speed, Elliott marks unbelievably well for his size. His style of play has seen comparisons drawn with Paul Medhurst and Stephen Milne, but it is through his tackling and defensive work in attack that he has impressed his coaches. In just over 50 games, Elliott has already enjoyed some big outings, none more memorable than his five goal haul against Carlton in 2013, although many may argue his Mark of the Year against Port Adelaide was even better. Having slotted a career-high 33 goals in 2014, Elliott still appears to have much improvement still left in him and is rightly considered one of Collingwood's most exciting young prospects.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Elliott’s career trajectory continues to track upwards following another terrific year inside Collingwood’s forward fifty.

His best football was eye-catching, a fact underlined in round three when he kicked five straight goals and took one of the Marks of the Year over Geelong’s Jimmy Bartel.

The life of a small forward has its trials, namely the propensity to drift in and out of games, but it’s a fate that rarely befalls Elliott whose work rate and hunger for the contest makes him one of Collingwood’s most reliable players.

His 33 goals ranked him behind only Travis Cloke as Collingwood’s leading goal kicker, and to kick just 11 behinds illustrates just how assured he is around the big sticks.

Elliott recorded at least one scoring shot in each of his 17 games and went goalless on only two occasions. As well as his five-goal haul against the Cats, he made his mark with two four-goal games in the space of three weeks against St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs and he slotted three on two other occasions.

Two hamstring injuries ate into his season as the campaign drew to a close, and he was sorely missed as the Magpies fought grimly to work their way into the final eight in the last three rounds.

Season By Season

A super season that transformed the Euroa youngster from a bit player into an integral cog in the Collingwood engine. His year started with an attempted screamer against Essendon in the NAB Cup before it all came together in front of 84,247 fans against Carlton in round two. The day started with the focus on the two senior coaches but finished squarely on the man in the No. 19 jumper. Elliott received three Brownlow votes for his five goals and 20 possessions, including two that sunk the old enemy in the tense final quarter. He had to cope with some extra attention from then on but he handled it well, bagging three against Hawthorn the following week and another three against Geelong in round eight. After a mild dip in form mid-season, Elliott finished off the year well, kicking three in successive weeks against Essendon and Sydney but had an interrupted lead in to the finals after sustaining a minor hamstring injury. In all, he kicked 30 goals in 20 games and went without a major on only six occasions. What’s more, he held two Mark of the Year contenders including the overall winner when he flew over three Port Adelaide opponents in round 14. A bright future beckons.

Season By Season

The tough small forward showed plenty in his first year as a Magpie in 2012. Played 15 games, including a run of 12 from round nine. Had a few standout performances - kicked three goals against Gold Coast in round 10 and laid 15 tackles against Fremantle in round 14 - but tired late in the season. Won the Harry Collier Trophy as the club’s best first-year player and will benefit from a big summer on the track.

Season By Season

Played as a top-age player for the Murray Bushrangers in the U18s. Kicked 10 goals in his five games for the Bushrangers and impressed with his forward pressure while playing for Vic Country in the U18 National Championships.

Was pre-listed by Greater Western Sydney and was traded to Collingwood along with Martin Clarke and draft selection No. 67 in exchange for pick No. 25. Travelled to Arizona as part of Collingwood’s high altitude training camp late in the year.

Played for the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup 18s, and played two matches for Collingwood’s VFL team as a top-up player (against Box Hill and North Ballarat) in the middle of the season.
