Dunell, 27, had another stellar season in his third year at the Club, finishing top five in the Club's best and fairest in 2017. Splitting more of his time between defence and attack this season, Dunell was still able to impact the scoreboard with regularity, booting 31 goals in 19 games. He also reached the milestone of 100 VFL Games during the year and will again be an integral part of the lineup in 2018.
