Western Bulldogs (2010–2018)Edit
Selected with the 31st selection in the 2008 AFL Draft, after playing for the North Ballarat Rebels in the TAC Cup, Roughead plays as a ruckman but is capable of filling a key position up forward and in defence.
In Round 5 of 2010, Roughead made his AFL debut against the Adelaide Crows at Etihad Stadium. He performed well, gathering 9 disposals (3 kicks and 6 handballs), taking 4 marks, making 3 tackles and kicking a goal.
During the 2012 season, Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney moved Roughead into defence. He remained in this position until mid 2015 when McCartney's successor as coach, Luke Beveridge, moved him back into the ruck.
Roughead was announced as the vice captain for 2015. However, he relinquished at the end of the season, choosing instead to focus on his sole performance as footballer.
At the end of the 2018 season, Roughead was traded to Collingwood within the last half an hour of the AFL trade period.
