Player Bio

Junior Clubs: Hope Valley
Clubs:
Debut: AFL 2011
Recruited from: Norwood
Brownlow Votes: -

Renowned for his relentless chase and tackle pressure, the South Australian added an extra dimension to his game in 2013, rotating through the midfield as well as playing his customary forward role. With more of a presence around the ball, he averaged the third-most tackles and fourth-most contested possessions a game for the Hawks. Small of stature but quick, strong and determined, Puopolo should continue to improve this year.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Hawthorn) No. 66 overall.
