Another consistent season from the forward-turned-defender, finishing sixth in the John Nicholls Medal. Played his 100th AFL game against West Coast in round five and was outstanding in the defeats against Sydney in round 11 and Collingwood in round 14. Happy to back his judgment and often turns defence into attack. Reads the play well and stands out with his aerial prowess and competitiveness, with his intercept marking and one-percenters a highlight. Contracted until the end of this season, he remains a key component of Carlton’s backline.


Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Western Bulldogs) No.32 overall; 2014 NAB AFL traded by Western Bulldogs to Carlton for No.46 (Caleb Daniel).
