Queensland product Tom Hickey was recruited from St Kilda to help boost the ruck division following the departure of premiership ruckman Scott Lycett.

Gold Coast and St KildaEdit

An inaugural Gold Coast squad member, Hickey played 12 games in two seasons for the Suns before shifting to St Kilda. He spent six years at the Saints, playing 67 games, but was unable to lock down the number 1 ruck role in his last two years there.

West Coast careerEdit

With Nic Naitanui undergoing a knee reconstruction in the second half of 2018 and Lycett shifting to Port Adelaide as a free agent following the premiership win, West Coast were in desperate need of support for Nathan Vardy and traded for Hickey. He started the year partnering Vardy, but spent much of the season shouldering the bulk of the load with backup from a pinch-hitting Oscar Allen.
