A third knee reconstruction, the second on his left knee, prematurely ended Scharenberg’s best season and will likely delay his playing return until mid-year. Until injured in the round 17 loss to Richmond, the seemingly cursed South Australian had been one of the Magpies’ most consistent players as an undersized centre half-back. Thrived on the challenge of matching up on taller opponents while showcasing his kicking and decision-making skills. Long overdue for a change of fortune.


Draft history: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Collingwood) No. 6 overall.
