The AFL’s first Sudanese-born player, Daw could be the catalyst for a whole new generation of African players. At 194 centimetres and boasting outstanding athleticism, the Kangaroos took the promising Daw at pick 9 in the 2009 NAB AFL Rookie Draft after an impressive season with the Western Jets.
In first two years with the Kangaroos, Daw has shown remarkable improvement with VFL outfit Werribee and has made his AFL debut in 2013, joining an illustrious group of AFL players to kick a goal in their first AFL game.
After battling form slumps Daw was delisted at the end of 2015 but re-rookied in the 2016 rookie draft. Daw has continued to improve each year but could not solidify his spot in the Kangaroos best 22.
After some recent hardship and injuries impacting his game, perseverance to get back to the top of his game exciting crowds yet again!
