Shaw endured an injury-ravaged 2013 season. The athletic utility sustained a serious hamstring tear at training early in the year and spent two months on Adelaide’s long-term injury list as a result. Shaw returned to play two AFL games in the latter-half of the season. The defender spent time training with the forwards and will be hoping to re-establish his place in the team in 2014.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Overcame chronic injuries to make his long-awaited AFL debut against Greater Western Sydney in Round Four. Shaw suffered several minor setbacks throughout the season, but showed enough to suggest he could forge a strong partnership with Daniel Talia in defence in the years to come. The athletic tall earned a NAB Rising Star nomination in Round 21 and agreed to a new two-year deal with Adelaide.

Season by Season

Shaw had a slow start to his second year at West Lakes after an interrupted summer, but worked his way into form at Glenelg in the second half of the year, impressing in the Club’s elimination final loss to South Adelaide. At 193cm and 89kg, the athletic 20-year-old has the versatility to play in a variety of positions.
