Player Bio

After starting his career in the forward line, Ambrose has relished a move into defence in recent seasons. 

The ruthless defender is known for his aggressive approach and played 10 senior games in 2017 in a year interrupted by quad injuries.

Ambrose’s determination and resilience was rewarded with the Adam Ramanauskas Most Courageous Player award last year and he is expected to hit the ground running in 2018 after a strong pre-season at The Hangar.
