The exciting Irish prospect found his niche off half-back in 11 games last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Collingwood in Round 15. Made an impressive debut in 2015 before struggling with a hamstring injury for most of that season. Although he will miss the start of this season as he recovers from a ruptured ACL, the Blues showed faith in him by promoting him to the senior list late last year. Possesses plenty of speed, class and skill.

Draft history: 2014 Rookie Draft international selection (Carlton) No.64; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Carlton).
