1 Playing statistics correct to end of 1992 season.
Exell started his career at Carlton where he played reserves football but after being unable to break into the seniors he joined Geelong. In 1989 he kicked a career high 63 goals which topped Geelong's goalkicking in the home and away season but injury prevented him from lining up in the Grand Final. His best individual haul that year was nine goals in a shootout against Hawthorn at Princes Park where Geelong, despite scoring 163 points, lost the game. He kicked another eight the following week against St Kilda.
Fitzroy acquired his services for the 1992 AFL season but he could only manage five games for his new club.
