He played consistently for Swans at WAFL level, and had a break-out season in 2003, winning both the Swan Medal as Swan Districts' best and fairest and the Sandover Medal for the best player in the competition, at the age of 29. He was named captain of Swan Districts in 2004, a position which he held until 2007, and was again amongst the best players in the competition, finishing runner-up in the Sandover Medal.[2] He won two further Swan Medals, in 2005 and 2006, playing mainly as a back pocket, before retiring at the end of the 2008 season at the age of 35.[3]
