Bio

The small, lightweight forward enjoyed a surprising career rebirth last year. After serving a two-year doping ban in 2015-16 and playing the last nine games of 2017, the Queenslander had kicked just 25 goals in his previous 41 games before contributing 38 (equal third at the club) in a breakout season. He rarely missed a set shot and was dangerous with his foot passing inside 50, while also adding to the midfield rotation. Finished ninth in the best and fairest and has been elevated to the club’s primary list.


Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 5th round selection (Collingwood) No. 75 overall; 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Collingwood) No. 42; 2017 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Collingwood).


Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 3; career votes 8.
