The Geelong Cats 2016 top draft pick Brandan Parfitt has held his own in his AFL debut on Sunday.

With skipper Joel Selwood and Stephen Motlop constantly by his side throughout the pre season competition, the 18 year old surprised no one at the club with his selection for Round One.

A graduate of the AFL Aboriginal academy in 2015, the 18 year old (pictured) says while he was nervous about making his debut, he’s excited about the future and looking forward to the Round Two clash with North at home on Sunday.
