Midfielder who missed out on playing for the Victorian Under 18 carnival side but saw his stocks rise after a strong second half of the year in the TAC Cup where he won the Morrish Medal for best player in the competition. In 2015 he also played two games for the Richmond VFL side as a top-up player.

Debuted in Round 1, 2016 after a strong pre-season campaign and was one of his side's best players in a win before being nominated for the Rising Star award.

In November 2016 he was charged with a low level drink driving offence, the first of a series of incidents over the next year. He was also accused of diving in the Round 14 win over West Coast, and forced to apologise after an altercation with a Carlton fan Round 16 two weeks later. Despite the off-field drama, he improved on his impressive rookie season to play every game and lead the side in Brownlow Medal votes.

He improved further in 2018, playing every game for the season including three finals and being named an All Australian for the first time. He had another excellent season in 2019, albeit in a much worse team, registering another 12 Brownlow Medal votes and playing every game for the year as his side's premiere midfielder.
