Brennan Cox has his sights
set on becoming an All-Australian backman in 2023 after settling permanently into a defensive role in a breakout 2022 season.
"I've always had a goal since moving down back to try and make the All-Australian team, and I thought I took a step closer last year. I went away and had a good off-season, and hopefully, I can take another step this year," he said.

Brennan Cox says he has learnt to manage his troublesome skinfolds after some experience as an AFL player.
"My skinfolds seem to stay a bit higher than everyone else," Cox said.
"But (it's) just making the hard choices and cutting out carbs sometimes when I don't need them, or sugar or whatever it is, just to keep those skinnies down, which I did for most of the year.
"(In the AFL) you go from being a kid eating, drinking whatever you want really, training whenever you want. You soon find out quickly what you have to do, what you have to eat and it is a bit of a shock, but you adjust pretty quickly."

Brennan Cox says he is keen to form a potent attack for Fremantle with recruits Jesse Hogan and Rory Lobb.
"When I first came in I probably did feel more comfortable down back, but now I've gone up forward and started to learn how to play forward I've become more comfortable," Cox said.
"A lot of weeks we went in a bit undersized and I think I was the tallest at 194cm, or whatever I am, not really that big and I was getting a big tall defender.
"Obviously with Rory, Matt and Jesse I should be getting a smaller defender, if that's (four talls) what the coaches want to do."

"I've been working on my goalkicking at training and after hours, but finally it's paid off in this game."

“Cox has played a lot forward this year but also went down back as well," Fremantle list manager Brad Lloyd said.
