AFL career[edit]

Billings made his debut in Round 1 of the 2014 AFL season against Melbourne. Billings started as the substitute and had limited game time.[1] After Round 1, Billings was dropped to the VFL for two weeks, kicking five goals for the Sandringham Zebras and was selected in the senior side the next week. Billings retained his spot and played his best game of his then short career against Essendon in Round 4. In Round 14, 2014, against the West Coast Eagles, Billings dominated in what was possibly his best game for the club, kicking three goals and having 25 touches; for these efforts he was awarded an AFL Rising Star nomination.
