SUMMARY
Cox made his debut in round 12, 2017 and played 10 of the remaining 11 games last year. Proved to be a strong mark up forward, averaging 4.7 per game, however accuracy in front of goal will be a focus after kicking 4.11 in 2017.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Brent Guerra)
Brennan’s been playing a lot up forward, played back last year at Peel Thunder but obviously played forward in the AFL team and will be looking to cement a spot in the side as a key forward.
