Player Bio

Travis Colyer has elite speed, making him a valuable commodity in the modern game.  His burst of pace can break open opposition defences and lead to goal scoring opportunities.

After making his debut in 2010, Colyer produced the best football of his career in the first half of 2015.  He kicked 11 goals in 11 games, including a match-winning goal against St Kilda before a foot injury ended his season.

Colyer has had to battle continual injury setbacks throughout his career.  He didn’t play more than 12 games in a season during his first seven years on the playing list, but when fit, Colyer is an influential member of the side.
