Jackson Merrett is a reliable and selfless player capable of lining up in most areas of the ground.

He has spent part of his career as a defensive forward where he quelled the opposition’s most dangerous defenders. He’s also won plenty of possessions through the midfield including a 35 possessions haul against Carlton in 2014.

Merrett reached the 50 game milestone in 2016 after making his debut in the final match of 2012.
