The unique talent comes with the endurance of a midfielder, the size to offer something as a back-up ruckman and the nous to play on some of the AFL’s best players. Played consistently in every game in 2018, and was rewarded with his second Geelong Best and Fairest. He played on big names like Jack Riewoldt, Ben Brown, Tom Lynch, Taylor Walker and Jesse Hogan; and conceded only three goals to the leading Coleman Medal runners. He has signed on this year as a Cat until the end of 2023.
