Matthew PAVLICH

#29  

Age: 37yr 6mth Games: 354 Born: Dec 31, 1981
Height: 192cm Weight: 99kg Position: FWD

2016 Digest:   Appeared certain to retire but has pushed on for another season as he chases that elusive flag. Handed over the captaincy to focus on his own game and is still the most dangerous key forward in the team. If he can get some support around him, Pavlich will be a threat despite his age.

2016 NAB Cup:   Increased his game time as the pre-season progressed. Needs someone else to shoulder more of the load.
