Exciting young defender who showed encouraging signs in his first season at The Hangar in 2018.

Never afraid to take the game on, Zerk-Thatcher impressed with his aggression as a key backman in the VFL, working hard in the air and on the ground.

An athletic and courageous young player with good confidence in his ability, the 20-year-old was extremely consistent and ultimately finished in the top five of the side’s best and fairest.

Essendon’s defensive stocks certainly appear to have a good future with this South Australian.
