Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: -
Draft History:  2011 NAB AFL Draft local talent access selection (Gold Coast) No. 88 overall.

A clever midfield, half-forward type who played a career-high 14 games in 2014.

With his pace and zip around the packs, was often used as a substitute, but showed with three goals against the Lions and two the following week against St Kilda he has plenty to offer.

During the latter stages of last season, Sexton demonstrated his effectiveness as a tagger. In a game against Port Adelaide he restricted Port Adelaide ball magnet Jared Polec to just four disposals.

The Queenslander has signed on until the end of 2016 and his elite endurance stood out on the training track during the summer.
