Has become one of the AFL’s premier midfielders and this season shares the captaincy with Sam Docherty after filling in admirably for the injured Marc Murphy last year. Despite receiving plenty of attention from opposition teams, he showed great resilience, strength and maturity. Has improved his ability to go forward, take contested marks and kick goals. The West Australian won his second John Nicholls Medal, finished equal fourth in the Brownlow Medal, was second in the AFLCA and AFLPA awards and earned his first All-Australian blazer. Has signed a new deal to extend his contract until the end of 2021 and is a key component of Carlton’s future.


Draft history: 2013 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.13 overall.
