Brett Voss

Brett Voss emerged from the shadow of arguably Queensland’s greatest ever AFL player to forge an outstanding career in his own right. Younger brother of Brisbane Lions triple premiership skipper, Queensland Team of the Century captain and inaugural Queensland Hall of Fame legend Michael Voss, he played a total of 170 AFL games and kicked 67 goals for Brisbane and St.Kilda from 1997-2007, including eight finals.

An ever-reliable running defender cum dangerous half forward, he was renowned for the trademark Voss courage. Like his illustrious brother he worked his way through the grades at Morningside and played his first senior game with the Panthers as a 17-year-old schoolboy in 1995. He was claimed by the then Brisbane Bears as a Queensland zone draft selection in ’95 and played 35 senior games in four years for the renamed Brisbane Lions from 1997-2000, including two finals in 2000. He was very much a required player under coach Leigh Matthews, but, seeking greater opportunity, he accepted an offer to join St.Kilda as the No.1 selection overall in the 2001 Pre-Season Draft and quickly became one of the Saints most reliable players.

A member of the 2004 AFL Pre-Season Premiership side, he enjoyed his best period in the AFL when he finished 9th-5th-10th in the B&F in 2004-05-06. One game away from an AFL grand final in 2004 and ’06, he played 61 consecutive games from mid-2004 until the end of 2006, and ranked 10th on the all-time list of AFL games by a Queenslander at the time of his retirement at the end of 2007. Had a career-best 27 possessions against Sydney in 2002 and four goals against Melbourne in 2005.
