A terrier small forward who loves to put pressure on opposition defenders, Darcy Macpherson had to wait until round seven last season to be upgraded to the senior list and make his debut against Melbourne. He suffered a knee injury that cost him eight weeks out, but played four games and showed clever skills and a tenacity and willingness to tackle anything that moved.
