Player Bio

At a glance

Junior clubs: Rowville, Melbourne Grammar
Recruited from: Eastern Ranges
Draft history: Pick No.63, 2016 national draft
Debut: Round 9, 2018
Brownlow votes: -

Prolific ball-winner who broke through for a deserved senior debut in 2018.

Clarke forced the hands of the selectors with a sensational start to the season in the VFL when he proved to be a genuine ball-magnet as an inside midfielder.

While he was held to nine disposals in his first AFL game, he showed good toughness and awareness to have an impact on the game and display plenty of encouraging signs.

Clarke went on to finish third in the VFL side’s best and fairest to top off an impressive year and if his pre-season efforts on the track are anything to go by, the 20-year-old can step up again in 2019.
