Mark Baguley is a tough small defender who lines up on the opposition’s most dangerous small forward.

After not making his AFL debut until he was 25, Baguley has become an integral member of the team’s defence.

A consistent run saw Baguley play 63 games in three seasons, before injury reduced the defender’s impact in 2016. A knee problem flared mid-season ending the former Frankston Dolphin's year. He’d played ten games by that stage after being awarded the vice-captaincy on the eve of the season.
