O’Shea is a young defender who is one of the fittest runners in the Port Adelaide squad. With excellent endurance and leg speed, O’Shea’s two seasons at Alberton have been curtailed by injury and he will look to re-establish himself in the senior side in 2013.

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

  • 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.
