The key forward took some big steps towards becoming a regular at AFL level last season. His breakout game came against Melbourne in round seven when his 13 disposals, 10 marks (five contested), three tackles and two goals helped inspire the Hawks to a gritty three-point win. He averaged 1.4 contested marks a game and was also deployed as a key defender at stages through the season and looked accomplished there as well. He is probably a pre-season or two away from totally filling out, but the slow build and the patience exercised by the Hawks would appear to be worth it. Player and club were happy to sign a two-year contract extension at the end of 2017.

Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 28 overall.
