As one of Essendon’s barometers, Myers’ best performances usually correlate with those of his team. A big-bodied, strong ball-winner, he has been deployed into the midfield where he
uses his size and booming left-foot kicking to get the ball going Essendon’s way. More responsibility was thrown Myers’ way during Jobe Watson’s injury-enforced lay-off, but it coincided with his most consistent patch of the season as an inside midfielder.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Myers' first injury-free pre-season at AFL level led to his finest season in the red and black, playing a career-best 20 games. Often starting on the wing and pushing through the midfield, he provided good link between half-back and half-forward with his booming kick and contested-ball skills. He averaged 18 disposals, of which 78.5% were won in the midfield, the highest percentage of his career.
