Player Bio

Background

Newnes was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 37 in the 2011 National Draft.

The 25-year-old played all 22 matches for the fifth season in a row, taking his tally to 110 consecutive games and third on the current AFL list behind Zach Tuohy (138) and Justin Westhoff (123).

Newnes enjoyed solid outings against Collingwood and Gold Coast, booting four goals over the Magpies in what was arguably his best game for the season.

With plenty of potential and room to grow as a player, Newnes will be determined to bridge the gap between his last two seasons and press forward to a prosperous 2019.
