It was a year of transition for the Bombers skipper, moving out of the midfield and back to defence, where he started his AFL career a decade ago. Sustained a thumb injury late in the season that ended up being nothing more than a slight setback. Played 17 games and appears settled in his role, providing much-needed leadership for an emerging side.
