Ben McKay Biography

Tuesday, 12 February 2019
Ben McKay signs a two-year contract extension with North Melbourne to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

"Entering my fourth year now it's an exciting part of my career and two years is a good deal," McKay said.

"My first three years were a bit below par, by my standard, not playing as many games as Iíd like but in the next three years hopefully I can really make an impact and start showing people what Iím capable of."

Monday, 28 August 2017
Carlton youngster Harry McKay delivered a cheeky Twitter quip to his twin brother, Ben McKay, after the North Melbourne tall had a debut he would rather forget on Saturday.

Ben collided heavily with Kangaroos teammate Sam Durdin in a big marking contest late in the third term of the 51-point win over the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba.

Play was halted for several minutes as Ben was fitted with a neck brace and taken from the ground on a motorised stretcher, before being admitted to hospital for observation.

Harry tweeted his brother on Monday night to congratulate him on his maiden game, but took a friendly swipe in the process.

"Congrats on the debut and first win @benmckay_23! How'd you go singing the song?" Harry tweeted, posting a photo of his brother on the stretcher.

Determined not to be outdone, Ben returned fire soon after because the sibling rivalry goes both ways.

"How many AFL games have you won?" Ben replied.

Ben McKay has impressed the Kangaroos with a strong pre-season.

"He really impressed in Utah on the first-to-fourth-year camp. He's in a hurry, he wants to play, which is really good," North Melbourne forward line coach Leigh Tudor said.

"But from our point-of-view he's just got to get an AFL body, that's the first priority for him is making sure when he does play he can stay in.

"He's first on and last off the track, so he's fantastic to work with that way."

Ben McKay signs a 2-year contract extension, tying him to the club until 2019.
Tuesday, 24 November 2015
The twin brothers are both fresh AFL draftees, but Harry McKay reckons he has one over his sibling Ben.

Harry was snared by Carlton with pick No.10 in Tuesday's NAB AFL Draft, while Ben was chosen by North Melbourne with selection 21.

"I won't let him forget about that, thatís for sure ... Iíve definitely got the wood on him by being the first picked," Harry said.

Standing next to his brother, Ben didn't take the bait.

"I'll let my footy do the talking, I think. Wait until we get out on the ground," Ben said.

The towering 17-year-olds could well take their backyard scraps into the AFL arena - 200cm tall Harry is renowned as a forward and 198cm Ben is a defender.

"It would be a bit of fun," Harry said of a potential clash.

"There would be a fair bit of banter and a few little cheap shots.

"Hopefully, we can look forward to that in the next 10 years."

North Melbourne select Ben McKay with pick No.21 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

"He's performed as a forward and a back in his short exposure in the NAB Cup Ė he only played the 10 games Ė but we think he's got the attributes to develop into a power forward," North Melbourne recruiting manager Bryce Lewis said.

"He's certainly going to provide a physical presence and impact marking contests. He's a highly competitive kid who has really improved over the second half of the year after playing senior footy at Warragul."
