Player profile

Surprised a few with his performance after looking gone when the Western Bulldogs delisted him at the end of 2013. He played the first 14 games and was instrumental in Melbourne’s four wins,
tackling hard and winning the ball out of the middle. He played out the round 14 clash against North Melbourne with a fractured fibula before missing five games, then bravely returned in round 20. He had more than 20 disposals in 13 of his 17 matches and led the team for tackles (5.3 a game). Finished fifth in the best and fairest and won the best team man award.

Player honours: Western Bulldogs best and fairest 2008; Western Bulldogs 2nd best and fairest 2005, 2009, 2010, 2011; Western Bulldogs 3rd best and fairest 2006; All-Australian nominee 2008; International Rules Series 2010; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2004; Western Bulldogs pre-season premiership side 2010.
