A series of injuries limited David Ellard to 13 games in 2014, but didn’t stop him reaching the 50-game milestone in Round 18.

In his sixth season at the Blues, Ellard impressed in a new role as a harassing small forward, averaging five tackles a game to finish in the Club’s top five for leading tacklers.

His strong finish to the season saw his contract extended until the end of 2015.
