Biography

Born in Perth, Adelaide would become Nathan van Berlo’s true home after the Crows drafted him with pick No. 24 at the 2004 National Draft. He debuted as an 18-year-old early in his first season, earning high praise among a talented midfield.

With regular top-ten best and fairest finishes and true leadership qualities, van Berlo was appointed Club captain in 2011 following the retirement of Simon Goodwin. Whether playing as a lead midfielder, tagger or in defence, van Berlo was renowned as a tough tackler.

A 2014 training accident saw him rupture his achilles, an injury which sidelined him for the full season. While he returned to play 20 games in 2015, and reach his 200-game milestone, van Berlo handed the captaincy over to Taylor Walker. One year later he announced his retirement from the game.
