A former defender with Essendon’s VFL side, McNiece was right at home in his first season on the club’s rookie list, playing two senior matches and impressing fans with his composure.

McNiece made a great big-stage debut, taking the field for the first time on Anzac Day and recording seven contested possessions and five one-percenters for the Bombers in their strong victory.

While he only played one more senior game in 2017, the Next Generation Academy player is sure to continue to press for further senior appearances in 2018.
