A star junior footballer with Sturt, Brenton Sanderson’s career took some time to get going. As a teenager he played just six games for the Crows in 1992-93 and then spent a year with Collingwood. It was at Geelong where he eventually found success after being dropped for the 1995 grand final. He became a regular half-back and his 199-game career with the Cats was highlighted by winning their 2001 best and fairest.

He later became an assistant coach at Geelong and then returned to West Lakes as senior coach ahead of 2012. Adelaide reached the preliminary final in his first year and he coached the Club for three seasons. In 2016 he was appointed as a senior assistant coach at Collingwood.
