Another Greater Western Sydney acquisition, Kennedy’s inside-mid bullocking brings added grunt around stoppages, but he is also an aerialist who brings versatility to the Blues’ 22.

Originally hailing from Collingullie-Glenfield Park in rural New South Wales, Kennedy has crossed the border in search of greater opportunities.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (GWS Giants) No.13 overall.
