The 2008 NAB AFL Rising Star is at his third club after being traded for pick No.135 in last year's NAB AFL Draft, joining the long list of former Giants at Ikon Park. The hard-working left-footer made only 11 appearances in Greater Western Sydney's star-studded line-up last season, but returned for the preliminary final against the Western Bulldogs. Can play forward and push into the midfield. Has an excellent work ethic and appetite for the contest and will provide invaluable experience and leadership.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Fremantle) No.7 overall; 2011 uncontracted player selection (GWS Giants); 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by GWS Giants for 8th round selection (not utilised).
