The skipper was starting to produce his best last season when he severely injured his ankle against Geelong in Round 10. Despite a valiant effort to return late in the year, he decided to concentrate on having a a full pre-season for 2017. Played a crucial role in the Blues' first win of the season against Fremantle in Round 5. In his fifth season as captain, his experience and guidance will be vital with so many young players around him. Contracted until the end of next season.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No.1 overall.
