Swan Districts, Western Australia
Birthday
February 27, 2000

DESPITE being an overager, Ireland is still developing his game having stepped up to Swan Districts’ Reserves and League squads this season as a key defender. While he is not the fastest player, he is far from a complete slouch, and has decent mobility for his height which bodes well for shutting down increasingly mobile talls. He became a strong interceptor at the Black Ducks, and even managed a game for the Under-18 state side in 2019, with marking and endurance his strengths. Going forward, Ireland can look to improve on his consistency as he has the potential to hit the 15-disposal mark on the back of his endurance and reading of the play, while also building on his swingman status after spending some time up forward this year.

STRENGTHS: Versatility, marking, endurance, strength
IMPROVEMENTS: Consistency, raw
