Nathan Bock is currently one of the finest centre half backs in the game, a status he enhanced in 2008 with inclusion, in that position, in the AFL All Australian team, followed a few weeks later by his selection as the Crows' best and fairest player of the season. Bock is also quite versatile, and is sometimes used to good effect in the forward lines. At the conclusion of the 2010 season he had played a total of 113 games in seven seasons with Adelaide, kicking 57 goals. He joined the Crows from Woodville-West Torrens, spending a couple of seasons on the club's rookie list before being elevated to full, senior status in 2004.
After the 2010 season, Bock chose to join the fledgling Gold Coast Suns, where he played all but one game in the side's debut AFL season. A severe leg-break ended his 2012 season short after just four games.
