Brett Cook joined Norwood from Broken Hill in 1991 as the SANFL had allocated Broken Hill to Norwood as its country recruiting zone from 1991 to 1997.
The big, athletic ruckman was impressive in his first season at The Parade, winning the under 19's best and fairest award (12 games), as well as playing 10 games for the reserves.
Cook was drafted by the Fitzroy Football Club in November 1991. However he challenged the validity of the AFL National Draft, before withdrawing court action and continuing his career with the Redlegs in 1992.
He played another 16 games for the reserves in 1992 and made his league debut against Port Adelaide in round 14 of that season.
The following year Cook moved to Victoria to play with Fitzroy, and went on to make 25 senior appearances for the Lions from 1994 to 1996.
With the demise of the Fitzroy Football Club in the AFL, at the end of 1996, Cook moved to St. Kilda in 1997. He added another 18 AFL games (1997-99), including the 1997 Grand Final loss to the Adelaide Crows.
Cook was delisted by St. Kilda in 1999
