Angus Brayshaw was drafted by the Melbourne Football Club with the 3rd selection in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft after impressive performances throughout his draft year. Brayshaw was named captain of the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup and earned selection in the All-Australian team following a successful under 18 championships.
Brayshaw managed 21 games in his debut season recording a club high 4.7 tackles per game highlighting his hardness and willingness to compete. Unfortunately the following two years were hampered by a run of concussions which allowed just 15 games across the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
True to his character Brayshaw persisted through his injury troubles to return back to his best in season 2018 playing 22 games including three finals. Remarkably Brayshaw missed the first three rounds but still managed to place third in the Brownlow medal count playing just 19 home and away games.
Having now played 60 games Brayshaw enters 2019 with a full pre-season under his belt which will hopefully help the demons go one week deeper into September this year.
