Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Kimba
Debut: 2001
Recruited from: Port Adel Magpies
Brownlow Votes: 22



The evergreen defender enjoyed another golden run of consistent form in 2014 and is set for a 15th season after proving to himself his body could still withstand the rigours of AFL. Enright should become the third Cat after Ian Nankervis and Sam Newman to play 300 games. The five-time All-Australian remains one of the best rebounding defenders in the competition and finished fourth in the best and fairest last year, the eighth top-five finish of his career.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

He's a star. What more can I say. To be All Australian for the fifth time is an amazing achievement. He's so consistent and plays at such a high level week in week out. This season he was as reliable and dependable as ever and we really missed him in the preliminary final against Hawthorn. He's someone that, from a coaching sense, you don't really do too much with. He knows what to do and he's so keen to help the young players. He really helped Cam Guthrie this season. This season he had both attacking and defensive roles at times. He played on Cyril Rioli and Chad Wingard and plenty of the competition's other star medium forwards. We were optimistic that if we had made the Grand Final he would have been available to play, so he should be fine to start pre-season when the older guys come back in mid-November, although I'm not sure if he might need an arthroscope to clear things up.
