Coach pays his own tribute to retiring Cat

AFL: Geelong coach Chris Scott said the club would find it hard to replace Corey Enright after the Cats' games record holder decided to call quits on his playing career.

Enright, 35 broke Ian Nankervis' record of 325 games before finishing on 332, won a sixth All-Australian jumper this season.

The veteran (pictured) said he would now take time to consider his future, with Scott saying he had been a great of the club.

"He has played at a high level throughout his career, and that continued through this year,” the coach said.

"Corey is not only a great player, but he has shown outstanding leadership both on and off the field during his time at the club.

"The statistics and honours speak for themselves, but it's the work that he has done with his teammates outside of the public view that sets him apart.

The focus will now switch to fellow 300-gamer, Jimmy Bartel, who is yet to make a decision on whether he plays on or not for the Cats.
