Coaching Bio

I am a 200-game AFL veteran and former vice-captain of the Brisbane Lions. In my prime I was one of the game's premier fullbacks and since retiring I have coached with the Lions and Brisbane Broncos.

I was raised on the Gold Coast playing numerous sports, and in 2002 was drafted and made my AFL debut in 2005. After retiring in 2016, I have spent my time with my young family, plus media appearances and specialist coaching for the Brisbane Lions and Brisbane Broncos. I was also assistant coach in the inaugural AFLW competition in 2017.

Hi Daniel - Max had a terrific time with you. He started using your ( defensive ) techniques immediately after your coaching session. He took on mates/dads in a beach footy match with gusto. He was by far the lightest, but the newly acquired skills worked a treat! Cheers
