Being part of a premiership team in his very first AFL season is all down to hard work, according to his uncle David.

“He’s set his mind to it for a long time,” he said.

“His last quarter was just sensational – there were pressure acts like shepherds and assists that you don’t get stats for.

“(Coach) Bevo and the guys see things the broader public wouldn’t.”

Dunkley started from the interchange bench, but enjoyed a strong second half.

He ended the day with nine kicks, six handballs, fifteen disposals, three marks, seven tackles, contributing strongly to midfield efforts.

His excellent season and finals campaign follows winning a grand final for Sale in 2012, and success in both the Gippsland Power and V/Line Cup teams.

Speaking to the Gippsland Times after being drafted by the Bulldogs, Dunkley noted he had a good relationship with coach Luke Beveridge and was keen to play close to his family in Yarram.

Dunkley’s father Andrew played for the Sydney Swans until 2002, and while he would have been included under the father-son rule in last year’s draft, Sydney failed to match the Bulldog’s bid, due a deal allowing him to play for a Melbourne club.

Speaking to AFL南京夜网419论坛, Dunkley noted that his dad was now “90 per cent” Bulldog, but would always have a soft spot for the Swans.

His uncle David said it was surreal to see Josh’s photo everywhere.

“To open up the paper on Monday and see Josh, just thinking, “it’s real”, it hasn’t hit yet,” he said.

“He’s a future leader, he just works super hard.

“We’re extremely proud of Josh, and his parents and brother and sister, he’s had a fantastic finals series.”

Dunkley was the AFL Rising Star nominee for round 20.
