Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: 3rd best and fairest 2012; leading goalkicker 2011.
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: Collingwood (2007-09: 5 games, 0 goals).
Draft History:  Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Collingwood) No. 21 overall; 2010 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 5; 2010 rookie elevation (Gold Coast).

A model of consistency for each of his three seasons at the GC SUNS, Stanley took another step forward in 2013.

Not only did the ultra-professional utility rack up 21 disposals a game, he often did so while playing an effective run-with role on the opposition’s best midfielder.

Since the GC SUNS revived his career after he played five games in four seasons at Collingwood, Stanley has repaid them with excellence in a variety of roles, including half-back, midfield and half-forward.

Is solid in all facets of the game and loves to get among the tough stuff, finishing behind only Gary Ablett and Jaeger O’Meara for hard-ball gets.
