After a strong pre-season campaign Travis Colyer was struck down with a thumb injury before the opening round, an injury that would trouble him for the rest of 2012. He managed six games at AFL level with his speed off the mark and ability to win the ball from the stoppages once again providing an exciting prospect.

Season by Season

Season by Season

West Australian Colyer quickly gained a reputation as a super sub after damaging performances off the bench in Essendon’s wins over Geelong in round 15 and Port Adelaide in round 23. Though small, he is tenacious, has speed and can kick goals. Will be keen to secure his position in the team in his third season after agreeing to a new two-year deal.
