Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Sandhurst (Vic)
Clubs: West Coast, Geelong
Debut: 2008
Recruited from: West Coast
Brownlow Votes: 20

Outlook

Stepped up in his second season at Geelong after a summer toe complaint threatened to ruin another year. Laid 44 tackles in three games when he returned in round nine and tagged players at times, with his contested work rate and tenacity making him an important part of the midfield. The ex-Eagle was also elevated to the leadership group. The popular clubman remains a brutal tackler and finished seventh in the AFL with 150, despite playing just 14 games.

Player honours: West Coast best and fairest 2012.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 21.

Previous AFL club: West Coast (2008-15: 135 games, 37 goals).

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (West Coast) No. 22 overall; 2015 restricted free agent (Geelong).
