Dane Haylett-Petty enjoyed the best season of his career to date in 2016, establishing himself as one of the premier fullbacks in Super Rugby. The 27-year-old topped Super Rugby in carries and run metres in 2016 and was a shining light for the club, winning the Nathan Sharpe Medal by a record margin and the Member’s MVP. The Cottesloe product’s domestic form saw him make his Test debut against England in June before going on to play 14 Tests on the wing in his first international season, scoring four tries to be named Wallabies Rookie of the Year. With Haylett-Petty in career best form as part of a revamped, exciting Road Safety Western Force backline the Sea of Blue has plenty to look forward to in 2017.
