Background

Recruited from Northern Under 18's, Brent Harvey is North Melbourne's games record holder.

A five-time Syd Barker Medalist with more than 150 Brownlow votes to his name, Harvey's pace and general footy smarts makes him one of the best North players to ever wear the jumper.

 

2013

Mid-season, from Brett Allison

“His ball use and run and carry is always of the highest quality. The main area of his game to keep thinking about is his defensive side.

“He’s really working his way through taggers well this season. I don’t see that as a problem for Harvey since he’s been back playing.

“It’s about his intent and going in to win the ball. When that’s going well he’s the complete player for us.”

End of season review

Fresh right through until the end of the year, Harvey had back-to-back games of 35 and 37 possessions against Melbourne and Geelong respectively.

If he continues his form in 2014, there is every chance he’ll end the year inside the top five for total games played in the AFL.

Season by Season

Season by Season

In the pre-season Harvey stepped down from the captaincy he'd held since 2009, giving the honour to Andrew Swallow.

Without the captaincy, Harvey seemed refreshed, evidenced by his incredible 38-possession game against Geelong in Round 3. He had the most accurate season of his 17 year career, kicking 35.9.

Harvey re-signed for 2013, but will suffer a delayed start to the year after being suspended for six games after two separate incidents in the Elimination Final.

2011

Spending slightly more time forward than in previous years, Harvey saw his name on the scoreboard more often with his 56 scoring shots the most since 2000.

He still took 60 running bounces which was fourth in the AFL and an incredible 47 more than the next best at North.

Harvey finished equal second at the club for disposals, third for goals and equal third for goal assists.

2010

After missing seven games due to injury in 2009, Harvey was back to his best while playing every game in 2010. Following the Round 2 loss to St Kilda, Harvey was in the media spotlight due to a quiet game. He responded with a career high 44 possessions the following week, running West Coast ragged at Etihad Stadium.

The introduction of Brad Scott as senior coach gave Harvey a new lease of life. 63 tackles for the year was a career high, including a game high of nine in the Round 5 win over Hawthorn at Aurora Stadium.
