Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Shepparton (Vic)/Murray U18
Draft History: 2016 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 9 overall

Will Brodie added to his three games in his debut year by playing eight senior matches for the SUNS in 2018. The 189cm inside midfielder averaged 19 disposals, two marks and four tackles in those games and also kicked his first AFL goal. He had to win his spot in the senior side though, not making an appearance until Round 11 after strong NEAFL returns. 

Brodie loves a contest and can win the contested football, but has work to do on his aerobic capacity to allow him to continue to impact games for four full quarters. With the likes of Anthony Miles and George Horlin-Smith joining the SUNS for 2019, Brodie will once again face stiff competition for a place in the midfield but will be doing everything possible throughout pre-season to lay his claim.
