Has battled ongoing injury setbacks across the past year, however Sinn was a standout for Vic Metro in their showcase clash against Vic Country as a dashing half-back capable of having an impact further up the ground.
Named at half-back for the NAB League Boys Team of the Year following a strong season with the Dragons, playing five matches this year to average close to 18 touches from defence and emerging as a first-round talent ahead of the National Draft despite setbacks.
Offers great attack from defence and is touted as a first-round selection thanks to his speed and ability to slice open play with long kicking to begin a transition.

Consistency by foot over short distances
