Junior Clubs: Geraldton Rovers
Clubs: Geelong
Debut:
2008
Recruited from: East Fremantle
Brownlow Votes: 36

Outlook

Has morphed from a super-consistent, ultra-reliable defensive cog to important swingman. The jury was out on the going forward experiment early on, but two bags of five goals and one of four, plus the fact he occupied a key defender, showed it could pay dividends. Still proved his worth down back at times, especially in the semi-final when he blanketed Sydney superstar Lance Franklin in the absence of Tom Lonergan. Is expected to spend more time in defence in 2018 given the retirements of Andrew Mackie and Lonergan and has signed until the end of 2019.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 4; career votes 40.
