Another consistent season from the experienced midfielder who averaged 23.1 possessions and a club-high 6.5 tackles a game. His figures for clearances (4.0) and centre clearances (1.3) were also in the top three at the club in 2017. He doesn’t attract the rave reviews of others in the Hawthorn engine room, but when his tackle count and contested work is up, the side usually plays well and invariably wins. Has re-signed to remain with the Hawks until the end of 2022.

Player honours: International Rules Series 2011; premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.

Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 8; career votes 26.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 34 overall.
