Player Bio

Colyer’s greatest asset is his blistering speed, with the small midfielder able to break through the lines and make scoring opportunities out of nothing.

The West Australian had his most fruitful season to date last year, playing 22 of a possible 23 matches.

Colyer had 24 disposals, three goals and two goal assists against the Crows round four, highlighting his ability to find the ball and damage the opposition in the forward line.

Colyer could be in line to play his 100th match this season, which would be a fitting reward for his commitment to the club since his debut in 2010.
