Suffered a huge setback last December when he ruptured the ACL in his left knee in a pre-season training mishap, the second time he sustained that injury to the same knee within 12 months. Before the latest blow, he had taken on extra responsibility this season, being named co-captain with Patrick Cripps. Running defender who reads the game well, makes good decisions, is courageous and has strong hands. Contracted until the end of next season, having signed a two-year extension at the end of 2017.

Draft history: 2011 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Brisbane Lions) No.12 overall; 2013 AFL Draft traded by Brisbane Lions for No.33 (Tom Cutler).
