After an injury interrupted start to 2017, the ex-AFL listed defender played a key part of a strong Seagulls defence. Tippett would go on to play 16 games in his debut season with the team, and was named among the side's best players on four occasions. He also finished inside the top 15 at the Best & Fairest, despite his delayed start to 2017.
