Outlook

Easy to forget Geelong’s inspirational leader completed next to no pre-season with a foot injury, and fought a race against time to face the Hawks on Easter Monday as a result. Defying the odds, he never missed a beat in 2016 and pieced together a sensational year which saw him named All-Australian captain for the second time and lead the Cats back up the ladder to a preliminary final.
