Background: Pre-NMFC

Jed Anderson became a Kangaroo at the end of 2015 after a trade deal which involved an exchange of draft picks with Hawthorn.

Able to play both forward and in the midfield, he boasts an outstanding attack on the football, with his run and carry also a feature of his game.

Anderson played 10 games for Hawthorn between 2013-2015.

Season by Season

Season by Season

A mixture of form and injuries limited Anderson to only a handful of AFL appearances in 2017.

Although he only played five games at AFL level, Anderson was a part of wins against the Suns, Crows and Lions, highlighting his importance to the side when on song.

Forwards Coach, Leigh Tudor

“He came to the club early in pre-season and he earned the respect of the players by doing that.

“That’s how he was for the whole pre-season, keen, ready to learn and then unfortunately in Round 1 he hurt his hamstring and missed a lot of weeks with that.

“It (the injury) really set him back and it was a great effort to get back in the side but I just can’t wait to see him with a full pre-season.

“He understands the way we want to play, we can work on the things to improve and he has some really good assets that we like.

“The stretch of consecutive games would have been good for him, even though he thought he had things to improve on from later in the year.

“There’s a bit of work to do on things like finding more of the ball, but overall we were happy with him and next year is a big year for him.”
