Cult hero Brayden Crossley impressed many in his debut year, with his ferocious attack of the football and fearless attitude earning him plenty of praise with football fans and commentators. Recruited as an undersized ruckman, Crossley played the majority of his football as a key forward, starting in the NEAFL and earning a debut in round 7 alongside Charlie Ballard.

Crossley played seven games through the middle of the season before fracturing his cheekbone in a marking contest in the round 18 win against Sydney. He then returned to play the final two games of the year. He faces some stiff competition for a spot to start the season in 2019, with Peter Wright, Josh Corbett and Sam Day all competing for the same position as Crossley. Off the field, Crossley is an ambassador for Movember and took part in the 2018 fundraising effort for men’s health.
