Such is his reliability; Jordan Roughead has been trialled in a number of positions throughout his career with great success. Playing as a close checking full back, the 23-year-old featured in every game in 2013, not only showing great leadership and maturity, but regularly beating his opponent. Roughead was recruited to the Club with the Dogs second round selection in the 2008 AFL Draft (pick 31 overall).

Season By Season

Season in short:

Unearthed as a key defender late in 2012, Roughead consolidated the position beautifully in season 2013. Roughead consistently handled tall opposition forwards and acquitted himself with confidence. In the home and away season, he led the competition for one percenters, including spoils, while ranking 15th for contested marks. Among the defender’s major scalps were Jonathan Brown and Jarrad Waite. But perhaps Roughead’s best effort came in the final game against Melbourne, with 16 disposals at 100% efficiency and nine marks including three contested grabs.

Stat that mattered:

While conventional stats may not always demonstrate a full back’s effectiveness, Roughead’s ability to lead the competition in one percenters is telling. Despite being new to the position, the 22-year-old had more spoils, smothers, shepherds and knock-ons than any other player. He also built a reputation as a strong contested mark in the last line of defence.

What they said:

“He [Roughead] is now starting to get that inner belief that he can match it with anyone in the league and we are now seeing him buy into that and be a real ruthless defender… With Roughy having such along reach and being really athletic and having quite good closing speed, he is really starting to get his timing right in the contest and just get that timely fist in.”

- Development Coach Ashley Hansen

In 2012 he showed endeavour in the forward line, demonstrating he has the tools to provide a tall option to kick to – although his conversion rate at times let him down. His foray into the backline later in the year was even more impressive, holding down a key defensive post and providing plenty of rebound out of the back half. Roughead also held his own in the ruck providing a chop out for Will Minson throughout the season.

Season By Season

Emerging ruckman Jordan Roughead continued to build on a solid season in the VFL getting the senior call up on nine occasions in 2011. The 21 year old has the new-look coaching staff excited after impressing over summer and will be keen to stamp himself as a permanent fixture in 2012.
