After beginning his career down back, Dylan Addison spent the second half of 2012 establishing himself as a defensive forward. His transition proved valuable with his increased versatility adding some grit to the Dogs forward setup. The 25-year-old was drafted to the Bulldogs in the 2005 AFL National Draft as a second round selection (pick 27 overall) before making his debut in 2006.

Season by Season

Season in short:

After returning from injury for Williamstown, Addison broke into the Bulldogs side in round six and played 12 of the remaining 17 games of the season. His move forward paid dividends for the side with the 26-year-old contributing four goals and four forward-half tackles in the round nine victory over St Kilda. While injury and form slumps cost him a full season, the Sydneysider provided a lead-up target when in the team. Addison kicked 12 goals overall and registered a score in every one of his 2013 matches.

Stat that mattered:

A more permanent shift into the forward line was largely successful for Addison, kicking five more goals than his previous best in 2013. The 26-year-old had the third most marks inside 50s for the Bulldogs during the season with a return of 12 goals and 11 behinds.

What they said:

“Our forward line’s got a little bit of a different mix to it this week, great to see Dylan Addison come back into the team. He’s gone back to Williamstown and played a significant role there for us and thoroughly deserves his opportunity back in the senior side.”

- Assistant Coach Shannon Grant, round nine team selection

After making four appearances in 2011, Addison has noticeably stepped up his game, including finding a new niche as a defensive forward. His unrelenting style of play suits Coach Brendan McCartney’s contested ball mantra allowing him to cement his spot in the starting line-up. Fierce at the contest, Addison missed a month of football after enduring a broken jaw in the Bulldogs clash with Essendon in round 14.

Season by Season

The hard at-it defender/midfielder showed what he was capable of in round eight with 19 disposals and a career-high six tackles against Richmond. Has a terrific competitive spirit and will get his chance to fit into a contested-style game plan in 2012. Signed a contract extension last November.
