Van Diemen Dons

Rookie who performed admirably when he returned to the senior side for the first time in nearly two years late in the 2018 season. 

The son of club legend Michael Long is at his best outside the contest where he can use his speed and agility to his advantage.

The attacking wingman played well throughout the year in the VFL side on either side of his two senior games, confidently taking the game on to break the lines.

Long’s contract is due to reach a close at the end of the 2019 season, so many eyes will be on the 22-year-old to see if he can make a spot in the best 22 his own.
