After joining Essendon as a leading half-forward, O’Brien has been remolded into a running midfielder. The Bombers are using his excellent endurance to move him into a run-with role, a task he held in three senior games in 2013. Against Greater Western Sydney, he clamped down on Giants captain Callan Ward. O’Brien’s leadership qualities are highly regarded and he secured a two-year deal through to 2015.
