Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Nambrook-Newry (Vic)/Gippsland U18
Draft History:
2013 NAB AFL Draft end of 1st round compensation selection (Gold Coast) No. 20 overall.

Viewed as one of the most improved players on the SUNS list, Leslie played 13 games in 2017. The key defender got his opportunity when both Steven May and Rory Thompson were struck by injury last season, and made the most of it at senior level.

He played 11 games in succession and often took the opposition’s best forward, even when May and Thompson returned around him. The 22-year-old is entering his fifth season and with his long reach and improving strength has the ability to match up against most key forwards in the competition. He has proved adept at intercept marking as well and will be providing healthy competition with Rory Thompson to play as the second defender alongside Steven May in 2018.
