Player Bio

AT A Glance

Player Honours: Fremantle 3rd best and fairest 2011.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 6.
Previous AFL Club: Fremantle (2009-12: 68 games, 15 goals).
Draft History: 2009 Rookie Draft selection (Fremantle) No. 73; 2009 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Fremantle) selection No. 79; 2012 NAB AFL Draft traded by Fremantle for No. 36 (Tanner Smith).

Took time to find his feet after moving from Fremantle, but eventually secured a regular place at half-back.

Broughton became more of a negating defender than most originally thought, but his play allowed David Swallow to attack from the backline and Jarrod Harbrow to move to the wing and midfield.

Is a solid defender who uses the ball well and should continue to be an asset when feeling more at home in his second season.
