Sicily was trialled as a defender last summer, but once the season started, resumed his place in the forward line, as was the case in 2016. But with so many injuries to Hawthorn’s defenders, he was switched to the back half once more and might have found his calling. Over the final 10 weeks of the season, he averaged 24.1 possessions, 9.1 marks and 2.2 contested marks and earned rave reviews for his reading of the play, intercept marking and neat disposal. The Hawks might have found their replacement for the retired Josh Gibson and, thanks to a new deal, he is committed to the club until the end of 2020. 

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2016.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 4.

Draft history: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 56 overall.
