Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: International Rules Series 2011; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011
Brownlow Medal: -
Draft History: 2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

McKenzie locked down his spot in the backline with 19 games last season, missing the others with a hamstring niggle. The Suns often tried to orchestrate him as the loose man in defence to take advantage of his rocket launcher of a left boot, as he averaged 16 disposals a game. While his one-on-one defence is sound, McKenzie’s opponent can occasionally lose him and make him pay. However, the upside he gives his team is enormous with his run and carry and distribution from defence. Should learn a lot from playing alongside Nick Malceski this season, which should be highly beneficial for his career moving forward.
