A Gippsland Power product who mainly played as a midfielder, Craig Biddiscombe struggled to achieve regular senior selection at Geelong, playing just 34 games and scoring six goals between 1995 and 1998. He did, however, earn a Norwich Rising Star nomination in his seventh game, which was played in 1996. The 1999 season saw him at Richmond where he added 44 appearances and seven goals over five seasons. In 2004-5 he rounded off his career in the VFL with North Ballarat.
