Player Bio

Anthony “Walla” McDonald-Tipungwuti made a permanent move into Essendon’s forward line in 2017 and never looked back.

The damaging small forward booted 34 goals in a brilliant season, leading the league for chase-down tackles thanks to his ferocious pressure and pace.

McDonald-Tipungwuti’s selfless nature, clean ball use and football smarts have made him one of the AFL’s hardest players to match up on as he provides constant headaches for the opposition’s defenders.

With just two AFL seasons under his belt, McDonald-Tipungwuti looks poised for another great year with more improvement to come.
