Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: - Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2014.
Brownlow Medal: -
Draft History: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 5 overall.

A brilliant first season for the Tasmanian half-back flanker. Kolodjashnij played 18 games and only a hamstring injury and late-season fatigue stopped him playing more. His composure with the ball was outstanding for a first-year player, while his radar-like left boot set up numerous attacks from Gold Coast’s back half. Kolodjashnij averaged 17 disposals a game at 75 per cent efficiency. He has great endurance and showed his class in kicking one of the goals of the year against Sydney, handling the ball three times in the one movement before kicking truly from 50m on the run. The teenager should benefit greatly from Nick Malceski’s guidance and experience.
