It is an important season for Kavanagh, who has struggled for opportunities in Essendon’s midfield during his three-year stint at the club. The ball-user was an emergency seven times last year, but played just three senior games and requested a trade at the end of the season. As a contracted player, Kavanagh remained at the club and will be focused on lifting his possession rate in 2015 to hold down a senior position

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.
