Tom grew as one of the imposing big men in the AFL last year, playing 10 games and winning many key battles in the ruck. Averaged 22 hit-outs and proved his worth as an attacking option, kicking 28 goals the second most at the club. After having a delayed start to the 2014 season due a surgery to mend damaged ankle ligaments, he is back into the side and building on his form. Recommitted to the club to the end of the 2015 season by signing a two-year contact extension.
