Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: career votes 1.
Junior Club: Chelsea (Vic)/ Dandenong U18
Draft History:
2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

After struggling at the start of 2016, Matt Shaw finished strongly, playing the final 10 games – including the 100th of his career against Port Adelaide in round 23 – averaging 18 disposals over that stretch.

The 25-year old foundation SUN is versatile, but does his best work at half-back or on a wing.
