What a journey its been… I’m sorry to all the Geelong Cats supporters that we couldn’t get it done for you last night. However, thank you for the way you have cheered us on throughout the 2020 season and through all if its challenges.

I’m so incredibly proud of this group and the entire footy club. You have all (including everyone involved in the AFL) put so much of your time, energy and heart into making this season go ahead. Thank you!

I’m going to miss playing the game that I live and have loved since I was a kid watching my day play. It has brought me so much joy!

There are many people that I will need to thank for investing into my career, both professionally and personally but impossible to make mention of everyone here.

Congratulations to Richmond, what an outstanding achievement you have won your third premiership in the last four years. Well done! I also just want to thank you very much for pausing your celebrations last night to send me off with a guard of honour.

Lastly to my family, there’s no way I could have achieved what I have without your constant love, encouragement and support… I’m looking forward to what’s to come for our family.
