After being some what a surprise selection in the 2005 National Draft, Anthony spent the 2006 season developing at Williamstown.
Likened to champion James Clement, ‘Jack’ showed poise, courage, run and aggression while he spent the majority of the season in the Seagulls back half and helped them on their way to a Preliminary Final birth while claiming big scalps throughout the season including the up and down Kent Kingsley.

Unlucky not to debut in his rookie season John is heading into the 2007 NAB Cup fixture with a full head of steam, hoping to gain a spot in the defensive black and white half and cement it alongside senior campaigners Shane Wakelin and Simon Prestigiacomo, who are in their twilight of their careers and looking to pass the baton onto up and coming youth.
