17. Nick Buykx
Recruited from: Werribee (VFL) / Western Jets
Local Club: Point Cook / WRFL
Originally from the Western Jets, Buykx went on to play 20 VFL games with Werribee before moving to the Seagulls at the start of the 2019 season. A small defender, Buykx only managed three games last season but will be looking to fill the void left by 2015 premiership player Jack Charleston’s retirement. Ironically, Charleston requested for Buykx to wear his number 17 jumper this year.
