Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: Collingwood (2011-16, 40 games, 18 goals)
Junior Club: St Ives (NSW)
Draft History: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Collingwood) No. 67 overall as NSW scholarship holder; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Collingwood for No. 35 (Callum Brown), No. 57 (Josh Daicos).

The former Collingwood ruckman has headed north seeking more opportunities after Brodie Grundy was preferred as the Magpies’ main man in 2016.

Standing 209cm, Jarrod Witts is a monster of a man and is not only good at stoppages, but has an incredible aerobic capacity for his size. He has also proved he can kick goals when sent forward. Will have to battle Tom Nicholls and Daniel Currie for the top ruck spot, but given his attributes, has every chance of playing plenty of senior football.
