Drafted by the Crows at pick 12 in the 2017 National Draft, Darcy Fogarty is a strong bodied, dynamic and competitive tall, with the ability to kick 50 metres off both feet. Originally recruited as a forward, Fogarty can push into the midfield and has an elite kicking efficiency.
Debuting a few months after in Round 1 of 2018, Fogarty went on to play 10 games for the season, playing a far more damaging role for his side than other clubs may have anticipated. He quickly imposed his physicality on games, laying bone crunching tackles to win the ball while also possessing quick and clean hands. A dynamic and explosive player, Fogarty is sure to dominate contests whether they are in the midfield or forward line, and be a key player at the Crows for years to come.
