Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: International Rules Series 2011; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Altona Juniors (Vic)/ Williamstown Juniors (Vic)/ Western U18
Draft History:
2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

The defensive superboot struggled with injury in 2016. Trent McKenzie played just seven games – stranding him on 99 for his career – after suffering three separate injuries. He broke his nose against Carlton in round three, injured his ankle against Geelong in round six, and then hobbled off against Hawthorn in round 14 with a quad problem.

The 24-year-old is often used as the SUNS’ third tall defender and, when he locks down, is a crucial member of the back six with his ability to break lines with his booming left boot.
