Outlook

One of the best rebounding defenders in the competition, Enright is a brilliant decision-maker and strong overhead. Was third in the 2012 best and fairest, which was his seventh top-five finish. Continued to impress last season, taking the second-most intercept marks of any Geelong player and recording a disposal efficiency of 78.4 per cent, which is the best at the club among the top-10 ball-winners. Won selection in the All-Australian team for the fifth time.

Played 22 games and first final, however knee injury knocked him out of rest of finals campaign

Named to All Australian team for fifth time in six years

Had 490 disposals, the ninth time he has had over 400 in a season

Registered 16 goal assists, a career best

His only goal of the season came in his 250th, a long bomb from outside the boundary

Took 152 marks, the most in any season of his career

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

He's a star. What more can I say. To be All Australian for the fifth time is an amazing achievement. He's so consistent and plays at such a high level week in week out. This season he was as reliable and dependable as ever and we really missed him in the preliminary final against Hawthorn. He's someone that, from a coaching sense, you don't really do too much with. He knows what to do and he's so keen to help the young players. He really helped Cam Guthrie this season. This season he had both attacking and defensive roles at times. He played on Cyril Rioli and Chad Wingard and plenty of the competition's other star medium forwards. We were optimistic that if we had made the Grand Final he would have been available to play, so he should be fine to start pre-season when the older guys come back in mid-November, although I'm not sure if he might need an arthroscope to clear things up.
