Outlook: Came to the club considered an outside midfielder but improved his ball-winning skills to rank fifth at Freo for contested possessions. He also gained the most metres. Will look to improve his kicking inside the attacking 50 in 2014.

What the coach says (Mark Stone): Has really benefitted from last year coming into a new team with new systems. He’s really improved his fitness and he’s a lot stronger. He’s a little bit lighter than last year but he’s lost none of his pace.

AFL Fantasy: Scores well without being outstanding. A safe option, but don’t expect 100s.

Season by Season

Season by Season

The former Port Adelaide player added pace and skill to Freo’s midfield in 2013. His presence has helped free up Stephen Hill, with the pair strong all season in the midfield.

Had another excellent season, averaging more than 21 possessions a game (second only to Travis Boak) and again finishing fifth in the best and fairest. Relishing the responsibility of a midfield role, he led the club in total kicks (260), handballs received (217) and loose-ball gets (55) and was second in inside 50s (78). A more complete player, he has plenty to offer.
