SUMMARY
An injury to Alex Pearce in 2016 opened the door for Collins to make his debut, and the tall defender made the most of his opportunity playing every game bar one for the remainder of the year. Boasts the maturity to lead by example on and off the field.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Roger Hayden)
Sam trained well during the pre-season, holding a key back position. Had a good 3km time trial, has put on a few kilos and looking to establish
a role as a key back going into the season.

Season by Season

Played all but one game after his Round 10 debut against St Kilda, with the tall backman establishing himself well in Freo’s defence.
