Head spent most of the 2002 and 2003 seasons suffering from a groin and shoulder injuries and only played five league WAFL games in those two seasons.[2] He recovered in 2006 to play 14 games before cementing his position as a long kicking rebounding defender with South Fremantle in 2007 playing 22 games and finishing second in the club's best and fairest award.[3]

In a surprising move, Fremantle then selected him with their only selection in the 2007 pre-season draft. He made his debut in round 14 of the 2008 AFL season as a late replacement for Luke McPharlin in Fremantle's 4-point loss to Essendon at Subiaco Oval. Head was delisted from Fremantle at the end of 2009.
