The tireless South Australian was last year named on the interchange bench in the All-Australian team and was probably the Magpies’ most important player. Remarkably for a ruckman, he was almost another midfielder, averaging 20.2 disposals, leading the Pies in contested possessions and was second in clearances (10th in the AFL) and tackles. And he did it all with great vigour that lifted his teammates. The joint winner of the best and fairest, he finished fourth in the AFL Coaches Association award, was in the top 10 in the Brownlow Medal and rose to No. 4 in the Official AFL Player Ratings.

Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Collingwood) No. 18 overall.

Player honours: best and fairest 2018 (equal); All-Australian 2018; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2013.

Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 17; career votes 26.
