Profile: A star and gun player for the Swans. Dropped off form because of added responsibility when Barry Hall was out, but was still dependable. Will bounce back stronger in 2008, with Barry Hall back into the team and the addition of Henry Playfair to the forward line. Was the last player to win the Jim Stynes medal for the best player for Australia against Ireland in the International Rules Series. Was equal runner-up with Brett Kirk in the 2006 Best and Fairest Award.
