After several injury riddled seasons, Matthew Leuenberger found the continuity he craved in his first season with the Bombers.

A highly rated junior prospect, the Brisbane Lions landed the ruckman with the fourth pick in the 2006 National Draft. He went on to play 108 games with the Club, including two seasons where he played all 22 games (2010 and 2011).

He joined Essendon for the 2016 season and played 20 games, his best return in several years.

Leuenberger is a mobile ruckman with strong endurance.
