In 2009, he was selected by Adelaide with pick No. 13 and made his long-awaited debut in Round 15, 2011. Talia had a breakout year in 2012 and was rewarded with the NAB Rising Star award. From there, the ever-reliable defender did not miss a game until 2015.
He became an All Australian in 2014 and was named Adelaide’s Club Champion. He added a second All Australian in 2016. His brother Michael also played AFL, for the Western Bulldogs and Sydney Swans. In October 2017, Talia married his partner Megan in the Adelaide Hills.
