Outlook

The solidly built inside midfielder enjoyed an encouraging first season with the Cats in 2013 after joining the club from Gold Coast. Started the year in good touch, but was injured and then dropped to the VFL after hitting a flat spot during the middle rounds. Was recalled for the round 14 clash with Fremantle and immediately made an impression. His best performance came against Adelaide in round 17 when he gathered 18 disposals and kicked three goals.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

He played some reasonable footy at the start of the year and then ended up back in the VFL. But the last part of his season, after he came back into the AFL team, was exceptional. He played very well as the sub a couple of times and was really influential in some other games, playing as both an inside midfielder and as a forward at various times. He really matured as the year went on and gained a lot of respect from the way he fought his way back into the AFL side after being dropped to the VFL. We're all really excited about Josh and what we think he's capable of doing in the next 12 months.
