Myers deservedly reached his 100th-game milestone in last year’s elimination final, rewarding his dedication and perseverance throughout his injury-ravaged career.                  

Myers’ strength in the contest was a clear highlight of his 15 senior outings in 2017, in which he averaged 18 disposals and regularly put his booming left foot on display.

With several stalwarts departing the club last year, Myers is now one of the most senior players on the list and will be an important member of the midfield group in 2018.
