Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Browlow Medal: -
Previous AFL club: North Melbourne (2014: 4 games, 3 goals).
Junior Club: Eltham (Vic)/ Northern U18
Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 49 overall; 2012 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (North Melbourne) No. 56 overall; 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by North Melbourne for No. 41 (Matt Flynn).

Two separate broken thumbs which sidelined him for extended periods hindered Dan Currie in his first season at the SUNS in 2016.

Early in the year Currie displaced Tom Nicholls as the team’s No. 1 ruckman and played four games to kick off the season, but after injury setbacks he was not sighted at senior level beyond round nine. At 201cm and 99kg, Currie is a huge man with a strong presence in the ruck and has also shown he can take a mark in the forward 50.
