Wasn’t able to back up his All-Australian selection from 2014 but, otherwise, 2015 represented another outstanding season from one of the competition’s premier small forwards. He kicked 52.19 for the year, behind only Jack Gunston, and finished in the top five at the club for tackles and score involvements. Breust torched Adelaide in the semi-final with six goals, but is also starting to see more time in the midfield because of his excellent ball use and strength through the hips that makes him hard to tackle. At 24, is coming into the prime of his career.
