The ex-West Coast Eagles recruit is hard at the contest and strong overhead and has relished greater opportunity at the Bulldogs. Adding a mature body to the midfield ranks, the Gippsland Power product is determined to add more balance to his game with his run, spread and power. The 22-year-old requested a trade to the Bulldogs in 2012 after playing 11 games with the Eagles.

Season by Season

Season in short:

After playing predominantly as midfield battering-ram in his first season at the Dogs, Stevens spent more time forward in 2014 as part of a mobile set-up finishing sixth on the Club’s goal-kicking list.

With a three goal haul against Collingwood in round 13, and an impressive 24-disposal game against North Melbourne in round two which included seven marks and a goal, Stevens showed he is more than capable of rotating through the forward line and midfield.

Stevens brought up his 50th career game in the round 23 clash against GWS Giants, and signed a two-year deal in August, confirming his homeat Whitten Oval until at least 2016.

 

The stat that mattered:

After adapting to his new role in the forward line, Stevens finished sixth on the Club’s goal-kicking list.

 

What they said:

“Koby has impressed since arriving at the Club with his competitiveness and versatility.

“He has adapted well to the various roles he has played and we are really starting to see him mature right in front of our eyes.” – Bulldogs List Manager Jason McCartney on Koby Stevens

Season in short:

After a stint with the West Coast Eagles, a return to Victoria proved to be a good decision both for Stevens and the Bulldogs. Playing 19 matches, the Gippsland boy filled a variety of roles ranging from goal kicking onballer to centre square extractor. Bulldogs fans will recall his best match - a 31 disposal, eight mark, three goal exhibition of power and precision against St Kilda in round nine.

Stat that mattered:

A number of stats mattered for the 22-year-old in his first year at the kennel, more than doubling his previous games tally during the season – playing 19 of his 30 career games in 2013. With the increased opportunity also came a range of personal bests including disposals (31), goals (three) and tackles (eight).

What they said:

“Koby coming into the footy club we knew he was a really offensive weapon for us, and his metres gained was really important. But the best thing about his game on the weekend was his defensive side - I think that was really pivotal in his chase down of [Clinton] Jones late in the game. His effort and desire to buy in defensively and make an impact there as well as on the scoreboard where he kicked three goals – it’s great that he’s starting to get that balance between the two areas.”

- Development Coach Ashley Hansen after the round 9 win over St Kilda

Season by Season

Stevens was traded to the Western Bulldogs at the end of the 2012 AFL Premiership Season from the West Coast Eagles in return for pick No. 45. Stevens was initially recruited into the AFL ranks as a second round selection (No. 23 overall) in the 2009 AFL Draft.
