In the absence of skipper Marc Murphy for the second half of the season, the vice-captain stepped up to provide inspiration and excellent leadership. Reached the 250-game milestone in style in Round 8 as the Blues scored a thrilling come-from-behind victory over Port Adelaide. One of the game's most durable and courageous players, the running half-back signed on for one more season late last year after finishing second in the John Nicholls Medal and being named in the 40-man All-Australian squad. Led the Blues for disposals (597) and kicks (383) and was second for rebound 50s (101).
Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 4th round selection (Carlton) No. 45 overall.
