Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Emerald
Clubs:
Port Adelaide (2010 National Draft, Pick 52)
Debut:
2011
Recruited From:
Eastern Ranges
Sponsor: Edwards Marshall

On the fringe of the Power’s best 22, O’Shea played the final nine games last season when the side was hampered by injuries. He will need to improve his consistency if he is to cement his place as a first-choice defender. Importantly, O’Shea offers Port great versatility given his size and ability to run. He has the tools to become a regular at Alberton.

Background

  • O’Shea was selected with Pick 52 in the 2010 National draft
  • His local club is the Victorian-based Emerald Football Club from where he was given the opportunity to play for TAC Cup side Eastern Ranges.

Timeline

2011

Debuting with several other youngsters against reigning premiers Collingwood in Round 1, O’Shea played 18 out of 22 games in his debut season. Predominantly playing on the wing and across half-back, it was a baptism of fire for the young O’Shea who faced off against Eagles star Andrew Embley on one occasion.

2012

His season started with a solid 15-disposal performance against St Kilda in Round 1, however he soon struggled through prime fixtures against early-season premiership fancy Essendon and grand finalist Sydney in Round 3. Having been dropped back to SANFL side South Adelaide, O’Shea was able to put together some consistent performances playing on a wing and was an emergency against Fremantle and Geelong before injury saw him sit out the second half of the season.

2013

An excellent season for O'Shea, cementing himself in the first 22 and playing all 24 games in 2013 - including two finals. He was used in a variety of positions including in defence and running through the midfield. A 30 disposal, 2 goal performance against GWS in Round 12 earned him his first career Brownlow Votes

2014

After a slow start to the season, O’Shea cemented his place in the AFL side with a string of 20+ possession games in the back half of 2014. Was omitted from the Power’s Round 23 clash against Fremantle in Perth because of match-ups, but returned to play a key role in the Power’s finals campaign.

2015

2015 followed a similar pattern to 2014, with O'Shea forcing his way into the AFL side in the back end of the season and keeping his place. Home games against GWS and Fremantle were two of O'Shea's best in 2015.
