Adams is the sort of player that loves winning the contested ball. Standing at 180cm, he thrives on the rough and tumble of life underneath the packs.
A GWS Giant who was lured back home to Victoria in 2014, Adams enjoyed a solid first season as a Magpie, warming to the task as the year wore on and averaging 19.1 disposals and 2.7 clearances in 12 games.
He quickly grew as a member of the Magpies’ vast array of midfielders, underlined by his selection in the club’s leadership group in 2016.
Adams’ stature grew further last year, polling 14 Brownlow Medal votes and finishing a solitary vote behind Steele Sidebottom in the Copeland Trophy.
