Player Bio

Background

Taken by the Saints with pick No. 37 in the 2011 National Draft, Newnes has quickly become one of the most consistent players in the competition.

The 24-year-old played every game for the fourth season in a row – he has the 6th longest consecutive games streak of any current player at 88 games – in a year where he reached the 100-game mark midway through the season.

Known for his fearless attack on the ball, the wingman had a career-high 35 disposals, along with seven tackles, five inside-50ms and a goal in the Saints’ Round 10 win over the Western Bulldogs.
