One of the team’s most reliable and irreplaceable players, was again outstanding in 2018 earning his first All Australian blazer. He marshalled the backline and provided usual drive from defence, easily notching the club's highest disposal efficiency and posted new career-highs for disposals, marks, rebound 50s & uncontested possessions. His leadership was hailed league-wide and joins John Worsfold and Chris Judd as a West Coast Eagles premiership captain.
