Alex Keath made a delayed start to 2018 due to an ankle injury and was therefore unable to play senior football until mid-May.

With his ankle injury in the past, Keath impressed in Adelaide’s three-point victory in Showdown 45 after recording 18 disposals at an elite 94.4 per cent efficiency.

Another highlight of the season for Keath was when the former cricketer manned emerging Carlton star forward Charlie Curnow in Round 23 and kept him goalless while offering plenty of drive off halfback in the 104-point win over the Blues.

Finishing the 2018 season playing six of the last seven matches and holding down a key position post throughout that time, Keath will look to build on a very impressive finish to his 2018 campaign.
