Player Bio

Now in his 11th season at Essendon, Bellchambers is one of the club’s veterans. The ruckmen held his spot in the senior side in 2017 after breaking through in round six to play 14 matches and secure his position as Essendon’s first-choice ruckman.

Bellchambers averaged 33 hit-outs and five score involvements per game last season, adding nine goals to show his versatility resting as a key forward.

The big Tasmanian will once again be forced to compete for the number-one spot in the ruck, but looks set to play his 100th game this year if he can secure his position in the side, a deserved achievement for Bellchambers after an interrupted career.
