Outlook

 

The solidly built and aggressive on-baller won many admirers during his second year at Geelong for the way he developed into an important cog in the Cats’ midfield. A broken foot suffered in an innocuous training incident sidelined him for eight weeks from round five, but the ex-Gold Coast midfielder bounced back strongly. Earmarked as a future leader, he was among the best in the narrow semi-final loss to North Melbourne and finished with 26 disposals and a goal. Committed to the Cats until the end of 2018.

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.
