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); 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 67.

Due to list reductions at Metricon Stadium that forced the SUNS to cut their primary list from 40 to 38 players, Broughton was delisted at the end of last year with the promise that he would be selected via the rookie draft.

He has found a home deep in the SUNS backline with his discipline and poise under pressure a feature of his game.

Following an indifferent first season after joining from Fremantle, Broughton played 20 games in 2014 to become a permanent fixture in the back half, often taking the opposition’s best forward.
