Brant Colledge (born 28 October 1994) is an Australian rules footballer currently listed with the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League (AFL). Colledge played underage football for the Attadale Junior Football Club, and also school football for Aquinas College. He played colts matches for Perth in the West Australian Football League (WAFL) during both the 2011 and 2012 seasons,[1] and was in Western Australia's squad for both the 2011 and 2012 AFL Under-18 Championships.[2][3]

Drafted by West Coast with pick 45 at the 2012 National Draft,[4] Colledge made his senior WAFL debut in round 5 of the 2013 season, but managed only one further senior WAFL game (and six reserves games) after struggling with various injuries, including hip problems during the pre-season, a broken jaw, a hamstring injury, and finally a season-ending ankle injury.[5][6] After playing the first two games of the 2014 WAFL season for West Coast's new reserves affiliate, East Perth, he made his senior debut for West Coast in round three of the 2014 AFL season, recording eight disposals and four tackles against St Kilda.[7][8]

Colledge was born in France whilst his father, Steve, was coaching field hockey at Racing Club de France. His father had previously played for the Australian national field hockey team.[9]
