Cable, an Indigenous Australian, is the son of AFL Hall of Famer Barry Cable. He made just one appearance with West Coast, at the WACA Ground in a win over Footscray where he had seven disposals.[1] A wingman, he had initially been listed as an emergency but was named in the team after Chris Waterman was omitted for being late to a team meeting.[2]

He played for Perth at WAFL level and represented the Indigenous All-Stars in 1994. In both 1993 and 1995 he topped the goal-kicking lists at Perth. Ten seasons later, he stood in for one match as coach of East Perth when regular Royals coach Warren Mahony was so ill due to a flu epidemic that he could not speak.[3]
