Kyle Hartigan was originally overlooked on the national stage in 2009 and moved to VFL club Werribee in search of senior footy opportunities. The key defender developed into one of the league’s best and was taken by Adelaide in 2012 as a ready-made rookie selection. He was in and out of the senior side during his first two seasons before becoming an established defender in 2015. His off-season work saw him share the Crows Children’s Foundation Community Leadership Award in 2016 with Charlie Cameron. A knee injury interrupted his 2017 campaign, although he played in the grand final, before managing just 13 games in 2018.
The defender brought up his century with the Crows in Round 21 against West Coast. Hartigan played 19 games in 2019 and finished in the top five for spoils, contested defensive one-on-ones and intercept marks at the Club. He impressed in Round 12 against Greater Western Sydney, keeping Giants star Jeremy Cameron and eventual Coleman Medal winner to just one goal. At the end of 2017, he married wife Emily and the pair welcomed their first child, Hazel, on September 25, 2019.
