Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Diamond Creek (Vic)/Northern U18
Draft History:
 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft No. 21 overall, 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) 

Coming into 2019 after signing a fresh contract, Darcy Macpherson is on the cusp of a breakout season at AFL level. Macpherson was firmly in the best 22 at the start of last season before a fractured fibula in the round five QClash brought his season to a halt. He completed his rehab in time to return for a handful of NEAFL games at the end of the season but was not able to play any more AFL football in 2018.

Macpherson has had an uninterrupted run this pre-season and is ready to put his hand up again for his spot in the best 22. At his best, Macpherson is a tackling machine who hounds his opponents with his forward pressure. Macpherson is a well-liked member of the playing group and has a great work ethic which will put him in the frame to add to his tally of AFL games this season.
