Cousins played as a rover and stood at 175 centimetres in height. After playing in the WAFL between 1970 and 1974 for the Perth Football Club, he was recruited to the VFL to play with Geelong where he made his debut in 1975. He went on to play 67 games for the club until 1979 when he returned to Perth. Cousins continued to play WAFL football until 1987. Cousins tied on votes for the 1983 Sandover Medal, but was beaten on a countback by John Ironmonger; in 1997, the WAFL awarded him a retrospective Sandover Medal. In his two stints at Perth, Cousins played 240 games and kicked 309 goals. He also represented Western Australia in State of Origin football.
Cousins is married to Stephanie and has four children, including former West Coast Eagles and Richmond player and Brownlow Medallist Ben Cousins (who was recruited by West Coast under the father-son rule). Cousins is also a successful harness racing trainer and Group One owner, winning the Chariots of Fire with Innocent Eyes.
