He had a poor game, with only 3 possessions and was dropped for the following game against Port Adelaide, which would have seen him playing back in his home town. Round 3 saw him re-selected and gather 12 possessions as well as kicking his first AFL goal. He continued his good form with 13 possessions against the Brisbane Lions, and he kicked 2 goals in Round 5 against Geelong. Despite having only 4 kicks in Round 6 against Sydney, he kicked 3 goals; his third coming late in the final quarter when the Swans had got within four points.
