I remember about 5-6 years ago, watching a game where he couldn't bend down to get the ball off the ground and had the turning circle of an ocean liner, and thought his bad back would end his career before he ever fulfilled his potential (tbf, he was a dual premiership player then, but only the one AA). I'm not sure what's happened since, but having 3 AAs (perhaps a 4th this year) after that does speak volumes to commitment to recovery and getting the best out of himself to create a pretty rare career renaissance.
Has comfortably had an AFL HOF career, not Legend status, though he may have such an elevation in the Geelong HOF at some point in the future and his fans would think it well deserved.
I thought he might have been done early 2018.
He'd come off a really poor last 2 Finals in 2017, and after 5 rounds he had 4 goals.
Comes back into the side after missing through injury against Port, from that point he's played 100 games, kicked 259 goals, had 97 goals assists.
3 AA selections, a Coleman Medal.
Just odd that his prime has come from 2018-2022.
