Player Bio


Despite regularly dominating with Werribee—he finished fourth on the VFL goalkicking ladder with 54 goals—McKinley played just two games for the Kangaroos, against his old team West Coast in round one and St Kilda in round 15, and did not kick a goal.

His struggle for senior opportunities was exacerbated by Aaron Edwards’ outstanding form as the Roos’ lead-up forward.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (West Coast) No. 29 overall
