Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Found himself back in the VFL after three rounds in 2014 but fought his way back into the best 22 and held his spot. Used as a sub a few times but has had a mostly worry-free summer and is in good shape.

2015 NAB Cup:   Won’t be fit to resume until Round 3 or 4 after surgery on his foot. Might find it hard to fight his way back in.
