Ken & Dianne Ewing

Athletic defender with the ability to play on both tall and small defenders.

The former VFL Bomber added eight senior games during his second season on the club’s AFL list and proved reliable and composed in defence.

Encouraged to take the game on, McNiece is at his best when using his speed to burst through the lines and drive the ball forward with purpose.

With a one-year contract now confirmed for 2019, the 26-year-old defender will be striving to solidify a spot in the senior side and help fill the void left by former captain Brendon Goddard.
