Federico’s first year within the VFL system saw him add to the two VFL games he managed in 2017 while a 23rd man, managing nine games with the Blues, averaging 11 disposals & 6 contested possessions per game.
When not selected at VFL level, Federico would manage eleven games with the Northern Football League’s West Preston Lakeside. His form with the Roosters was promising, especially towards the back end of the season where he would be one of West Preston’s more consistent players in its finals campaign, topped off by a Premiership.
Previously, Federico had an outstanding 2017 season with the Knights in the TAC Cup, managing the Best & Fairest from ten games where he averaged 25 disposals and seven tackles per game. A big bodied in and under midfielder, Federico will relish the opportunity to further develop his game at Piranha Park in 2019 as he joins the likes of Luke Bunker, Marcus Lentini & Matt Harman, all whom he played with in the TAC Cup.
