Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Merbein
Debut: 2004
Recruited from: Bendigo U18
Brownlow Votes: 15

Suffered back and calf injuries during the pre-season and was under pressure for much of the early part of the year. His body language after a couple of losses was criticised so he went into the mid-season break with question marks hovering over him. However, he hit back with a strong second half of the year, showing his class – which has never been doubted – in the midfield and his willingness to work hard for his teammates. He is an explosive player who can win games off his own boot and looks determined to have a big season in 2013. The coach rates him highly as he knows he is capable of dictating the mood of a game. The 27-year-old should be ready to leave his stamp on the game.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2005.

Brownlow Medal: 2012 votes 2; career votes 27.

Draft history: 2003 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Melbourne) No. 3 overall.
