Coming off an impressive finish to 2017 when he stylishly put together his first three senior games, many eyes were on Begley at the start of 2018.

While the medium-sized forward once again showed good signs in the opening four rounds, an unfortunate ACL injury on ANZAC Day put an end to his second season.

The powerful 20-year-old is a dangerous proposition for opposition defenders, proving difficult to stop in the air and on the ground.

If the man known as ‘Fridge’ can return to the field as well as he had started his career, we could see him become an important part of the side’s forward group in 2019.
