Versatile young key defender who had an injury-interrupted season in 2018, battling calf, thigh and quad problems. In his fourth season, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft has an old head on his young shoulders. Elite runner, excellent decision-maker and reads the game well with an uncanny ability to take intercept marks. Oozes leadership qualities and is cool under pressure. Contracted until at least the end of 2021 and a key component in the Blues’ future.

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