Jarrod Witts won plenty of admirers as he cemented his spot as the SUNS’ number one ruckman in 2017, playing 18 games in his debut season at the club. The 209cm ruckman averaged career-high numbers for disposals (13.3) and hit-outs (37.9), where he ranked fifth in the league.

 
Witts is not only good around the stoppages, but has an incredible aerobic capacity for his size. He has also proved he can kick goals when sent forward. Joining the leadership group for the first time this year, Witts will take on a bigger role in directing the SUNS midfield in 2018.
