A hard bodied medium sized midfielder from the Bendigo Pioneers, 187 centimeter Wines was selected by Port Adelaide with pick 7 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft. Wines is expected to add grunt and a touch of class to the Port Adelaide midfield. In 2012, Wines had an impressive Under 18 Championships with Vic Country and went on to be named in the All-Australian team. Wines was awarded the NAB AFL Rising Star Nomination for his impressive debut against Melbourne in Round 1 at the MCG. In 2013 Wines played every game of his debut year and placed second in the NAB Rising Star award, behind Jeager O’Meara. In his short career at the Power he has become one of the key members of the team. A future captain in waiting, look for this midfield jet to become one of the AFL’s elite midfielders in 2016.
