After playing one game- his debut- in 2012, Kavanagh set himself for more experience in his second AFL season during 2013. He played three games, with his best against the Brisbane Lions with 18 disposals and a goal. Still light in body, Kavanagh will continue to work on his frame and put his hand up for selection during the 2014 season after signing a two-year contract extension through to the end of 2015.

Season by Season

Season by Season

A serious hamstring injury cruelled the Western Jets midfielder's season after he had been touted as a top-10 selection after an outstanding bottom-age year in 2010. He slipped down the pecking order after little exposed form, but the Bombers saw enough to select him with their first pick (No. 19 overall) in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft. The AIS-AFL Academy graduate is an exciting, polished player with speed, endurance and quality skills, and could find a place on the wing in 2012.
