Junior Clubs: Emerald
Clubs:
Port Adelaide (2010 National Draft, Pick 52)
Debut:
2011
Recruited From:
Eastern Ranges
Brownlow Votes: -

The tall and versatile defender had to work hard for his 12 games last year, starting the season as emergency and spending the bulk of the year in the SANFL. His ability to play on a variety of opponents saw him promoted when injuries took their toll on the Power’s backline and he played all but one game after round 15. O’Shea has worked to improve his skills in recent seasons and is an underrated but effective player.

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.

Season by Season

Season by Season

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
