He was drafted as a rebounding defender but has been able to transition to play predominantly as a forward over the past two seasons to great effect.

“He’s proven he can play some influential football at AFL level and with his speed, forward pressure and versatility has become an important part of the team.

“It was good to see him get a sustained run at it last year – winning our best first year player award – and he’s continued to display promising signs in the early stages of 2021.”
