With the frustration of an injury-interrupted 2023 season behind him, Jack Henry has shown through the opening three rounds why he is so crucial to Geelong’s backline.

Foot issues restricted the 25-year-old to just 11 games last year, and his absence was keenly felt by the Cats.

After consecutive, 11-disposal, four-mark outings against St Kilda and Adelaide to begin, Henry upped his output in the 36-point Easter Monday win over Hawthorn.

He finished with 15 possessions and took six marks in playing 100 per cent game.

“I feel really good. I had a good pre-season, which is unusual, given the past couple of years,” Henry told K rock Football post-match.

“(I’m) going really well; (I’m) pretty fit.

“The more games I get in, the better I’ll be.”
