The Western Bulldogs have added midfielder Robbie McComb to its playing list for season 2022.

Taken with the Club’s second pick in today’s NAB AFL Rookie Draft, McComb will already be familiar with the Kennel, having spent four seasons in Footscray’s VFL program.

The 25-year-old played every match of the shortened 2021 VFL season, averaging 25.5 disposals, 4.6 marks and 4.7 tackles.

A proven ball-winner, McComb’s efforts saw him claim Footscray’s Best and Fairest award, while also being named in the 2021 VFL Team of the Year.

He becomes the fourth player on the Bulldogs’ list to be drafted via the state-league pathway, joining former VFL Bulldogs Ryan Gardner, Mitch Hannan and Anthony Scott.
