The vice-captain had an up-and-down season, producing some outstanding games, but struggling at times with the attention of taggers. Playing predominantly in the midfield, the No. 1 pick
in the 2004 NAB AFL Draft was also effective when used across half-back or half-forward with long, running goals remaining a highlight in his game. Finished fourth in the best and fairest
after playing every game and ranked equal No. 1 at the club for inside 50s.
