Buckley enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, running out for 18 matches in his fourth year at the Blues. The 22-year-old’s development and improvement was evident: consistently having the confidence to run, carry and bounce his way off halfback.

Buckley’s courageous efforts didn’t go unnoticed with Marc Murphy heralding the youngster a fan favourite. He was nominated for the AFL’s Mark of the Year for his gutsy effort in Round 15’s match against the Tigers.

The young No. 7 will be hoping to build on his form in 2016.

Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round Father/Son selection No. 62 overall.
