Player Bio

Background

After emerging as one of the best players in his draft class in 2014, hard-nosed onballer Luke Dunstan worked his way back from a shoulder reconstruction to play 19 games in his second season.

The heir apparent to Lenny Hayes’ ball extracting throne, Dunstan averaged 17.1 disposals, 3.7 tackles and 3.0 clearances in 2015, as he found the going a little tougher after his exceptional debut season.

With 35 games under his belt in just two years, Dunstan has laid the foundations for a successful, long-term career in St Kilda’s engine room, alongside the likes of fellow young midfielder guns, Maverick Weller, Jack Newnes, Seb Ross and established stars David Armitage and Jack Steven.

Dunstan has trimmed down over the pre-season in a move to improve his outside game and ability to run and spread from stoppages.
