Tom missed last season as the result of knee reconstruction. The decorated Bomber worked hard during the season on his rehab and tried valiantly to get back on the field before 2017 came to its conclusion. Tom is among the most decorated players at Redland, winning the Dowling Medal in 2011 (he was runner-up in 2012-13) and the Grogan Medal for the NEAFL best and fairest in 2012. Tom joined the Bombers in 2009 after a stellar junior career in Tasmania, where he captained then State’s under 16 and 18 teams. He also played for the Tassie Devils in the VFL.
