Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Resilient and hard-nosed defender who has always bounced back when it has seemed his career was on the downturn. He was delisted at the end of 2011 to enable list maneuvering, but battled on and was even called upon to do ruckwork in 2012. Had minor finger surgery in off season.

2013 NAB Cup:   Surgery was a setback over summer but the warrior played all four NAB games. Even rucked.
