The Crows veteran started the year in defence, but returned to the forward line – where he started his AFL career – partway through the season. He missed five games after injuring his back following the Round 10 win over Fremantle, but kicked 14 goals in the next 10 matches for a season total of 19 goals. The crafty utility started as the substitute in Adelaide’s last two finals.
