Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: Adelaide best and fairest 2008; Gold Coast 2nd best and fairest 2011; All-Australian 2008; All-Australian nominee 2011; International Rules Series 2008
Brownlow Medal: career votes 17
Previous AFL Club: Adelaide (2004-10: 113 games, 57 goals)
Draft History: 2002 Rookie Draft selection (Adelaide) No. 25; 2002 rookie elevation (Adelaide); 2010 uncontracted player selection (Gold Coast)

After a long rehabilitation to overcome a horrific broken leg, Bock won his way back into the senior team late last season.

It was a slow comeback that required a number of weeks in the NEAFL as the 30-year-old struggled to walk and recover after games.

However, he kicked two goals in his return match against West Coast before being put on ice for the rest of the season following his next match.

A fully fit Bock is a huge asset as he can still win matches at either end of the ground.
