Myers’ first injury-free-pre-season saw him have a stellar 2013 season, playing a career-best 20 games. This season to date has been no different. Elevated to the leadership group, his booming, accurate left-foot kick and pace has begun to pay dividends for the Essendon who invested so much into the No. 6 overall pick in the 2007 NAB AFL Draft.
