18 year old Brandan Parfitt is preparing for the biggest game of his short AFL career when the Cats take on Hawthorn at the MCG on Monday.

A graduate of the AFL Indigenous Academy, Parfitt was taken with pick No.1 by the Cats and was named the AFL’s Round Three Rising Star nominee after having 23 disposals for the Cats in the win over Melbourne .

With Hawthorn yet to record a win in 2017, Parfitt (pictured) says he’ll do his best to treat the game in front a massive Easter Monday crowd, as just another game of footy.
