Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: International Rules Series 2011; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011

Draft History: 2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

The 2015 campaign was the most trying in Trent McKenzie’s short career. Having been a permanent fixture on a half-back flank since Gold Coast’s inception in 2011, the rebounding defender was challenged throughout the year and asked to play a variety of roles.

The 23-year-old played 16 games across the year, with a hamstring injury late in the year forcing him to miss a month of football in the closing stages.

The pick of McKenzie’s season came against Geelong at Simonds Stadium in round three. He was handed a difficult role of quelling the influence of triple premiership champion Steve Johnson, a role he performed with aplomb, completely nullifying the star half forward.

A strong performance against Matthew Pavlich in the wet in round 11 was also a feature of his year, with no Steven May or Rory Thompson available, McKenzie stepped up in weight class and kept the Fremantle superstar at bay.

McKenzie re-signed with the club on the eve of the season, continuing his stint at the SUNS for a further two years.
