Player bio

At a glance

Junior Clubs: East Wagga Kooringal
Clubs: Port Adelaide (2014 National Draft, pick 56)
Debut: Rd 2, 2016
Recruited from: Murray Bushrangers
Sponsor: John and Jacki Gray

Drafted as a raw tall forward with great hands from East Wagga Kooringal in the 2014 AFL National Draft, Howard has transformed himself into a reliable backman with speed and an impressive ability to spoil a contest. Has also been used in the ruck. He recorded the most one-percenters in the entire AFL competition in 2018, due to his want to spoil, smother and defend at all costs.

TIMELINE

2015

An aggressive key position player from Wagga, Howard joined the Power and played in one NAB Challenge game against Richmond near his hometown. Injury hampered his ability to get on the field early, but he finished the season playing 11 SANFL games.

2016

Debuted in Showdown 40 against the Crows as a deep forward option for the Power. Played three games for the season before going down with a debilitating anterior cruciate ligament injury - putting him out for around 10 months.

2017

On the comeback trail from the ACL injury he suffered in 2016, Dougal Howard played four AFL games in 2017. A new crowd-favourite, Howard had the most one-percenters in a single game in 2017 - 22.

2018

Dougal Howard played 20 of the possible 22 games in 2018 - missing Round 18 & 20 with a broken hand. Continuing his solid form in the defensive half, Howard has continued to build into one of the best big men in the side. As a reward he signed a contract extension until the end of 2022.
