David Myers' absence this year revealed just how pivotal the big-bodied midfielder is to the Essendon lineup. The 27-year-old would suffer an injury in the opening minutes of round 1, that would see him sidelined for the majority of the season. He would work hard in rehabilitation to make a return against Adelaide in round 20 where he had an immediate impact gathering 22 touches in three quarters. Unfortunately, he would injure himself once more and miss the remainder of the season. 

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. 

Season By Season

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.
