Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: Melbourne (2006-11: 55 games, 1 goal)
Draft History: 2005 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 26; 2006 rookie elevation (Melbourne); 2011 NAB AFL Draft traded by Melbourne for No. 52 (Josh Tynan)

It was a wretched second season on the Gold Coast ruined by injury, but Warnock still has plenty to offer.

A key-position defender who held the backline together in 2012, he suffered a broken arm against Port Adelaide in round four that cost 10 weeks on the sidelines.

Turns 30 early in the season and, despite being passed by Rory Thompson as the first-choice full-back, is strong and disciplined and can still win a place as a key defender.
