Speedy midfielder who played only five games last season, eventually succumbing to a troublesome hamstring injury. Has struggled with injury in his three seasons at Ikon Park, being restricted by adductor, hip and ankle injuries in the second half of 2017. At his best the former Oakleigh Charger is a good decision-maker, strong in the air and can weave through traffic and break the lines. Plays with plenty of energy and enthusiasm and is handy around the goals.

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