Speedy midfielder who made his AFL debut against the Brisbane Lions in Round 21 last season and finished the year in the seniors. Battled a hip complaint and spent most of his first season at Carlton in the VFL. The former Oakleigh Charger is a good decision-maker, strong in the air and can weave through traffic and break the lines. A close friend of teammate Jack Silvagni, sidelined captain Marc Murphy acted as a mentor for him last season.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.23 overall.
