Rookie Draft: Selection No. 24 – Henry Schade

Position: Key defender
Height: 197cm
Weight: 89kg
Born: 8/10/1993
Recruited from: Gold Coast/ North Hobart


A key defender who played 20 games in five years on Gold Coast's list. Schade was originally added to the Suns' list with the 24th selection in the 2011 National Draft. It took him longer than any other Gold Coast player to earn a debut, but he didn't miss a beat upon his selection early in 2015 and played 15 of the final 18 games.

Schade was given key roles on the opposition's best forwards, combining with the likes of Steven May and Rory Thompson.

He managed five senior games early in 2016 but none after round 10, and found himself off the list at season's end. Originally from North Hobart, Schade joins fellow Tasmanian Jeremy Howe on Collingwood's 2017 list.
