Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Modewarre
Clubs: Geelong, Gold Coast Suns
Debut: 2002
Recruited from:Geelong Falcons
Brownlow Votes: 248

The dual Brownlow medallist returned to Geelong in 2018 for an emotional homecoming after seven seasons with the Suns. Playing a solid 19 games for the Cats in 2018, Ablett’s first game back was a thrilling three point win over the Dee’s in round 1. Polling 14 votes in the 2018 Brownlow Medal, the elite midfielder made history becoming the single highest vote-getter in the award's history. The 34-year-old still has one year left of his contract, and he believes his body is sound while he aims to continue to fill a vital role in the midfield.
