The flashy and explosive midfielder is the type of player who can threaten to blow games apart, but injuries had kept him sidelined for the majority of the 2018 season, only playing two games at the start of the year. A hand injury early on in 2018 followed by a season ending knee injury forced Cockatoo to have a big summer with a focus on strengthening his body to support injury prevention for the 2019 season.
