After being selected with pick 76 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Guelfi certainly exceeded expectations in 2018.

With the added experience of senior football in the WAFL under his belt, Guelfi took little time to settle in at AFL level and played 15 senior games during his first season. 

The hard-running midfielder was used across the ground in a variety of positions, showing composure, class and courage on the ball, at half-back and in the forward line.

With another pre-season in the AFL system, fans will have high hopes that the exciting West Australian prospect can once again take his game to another level.
