The Hawks timed his rehabilitation from a serious hamstring injury to perfection and he returned for the Grand Final where his influence on the game, particularly smothers, tackles and pressure acts, belied a stats sheet that read just nine possessions. Played only 12 of 25 games for the year because of his hamstrings, but such is his importance to the Hawks the club sent a medical staffer to an overseas conference post-season to learn best how to manage them. Remains a nightmare match-up for opposition defenders when fully fit and still averaged 3.7 tackles a game in 2014. Reported back to pre-season training in brilliant condition.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Hawthorn) No. 12 overall.
