After success in Broken Hill, Brett joined the Norwood Football Club in the South Australian Football League (SANFL) in 1991. Following a very good first season Brett was drafted to the Fitzroy Football Club at pick 20 in 1991 but stayed at Norwood for season 1992 making the move to Fitzroy in 1993, making his AFL debut in 1994.
Brett concluded his time at Fitzroy in 1996, moving onto the St Kilda Football club in the following year. It was at St Kilda where Brett became known as the replacement ruckman for Peter “Spider” Everitt and Lazar Vidovic in the 1997 AFL Finals Series in which St Kilda qualified in first position.
Brett played in the 1997 preliminary final defeat of North Melbourne and the AFL grand final against Adelaide and was listed amongst the best players for St Kilda.
Brett was delisted by the Saints in 1999 and continued his football career across several different Victorian Leagues before moving into coaching roles. Notably, joining the Coburg Tigers in the VFL as an assistant coach in 2011.
