Adrian enjoyed his best season last year, culminating in him winning the Dowling Medal as the club best and fairest. He attributed his consistency to completing his first pre-season. Popular among the playing group as well as supporters, Adrian’s strong marking and strength in one-on-one contests led to him taking all before him. He was also named in the NEAFL Team of the Year. The former Tasmanian represented the Tassie Mariners as a junior and played with the Tassie Devils in the VFL in 2008.
