Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Temporarily eased off the list, but was then re-drafted, which was testament to the esteem in which he is held by the club. His major obstacle is an ailing knee, but he also has to overcome a number of players who have leapfrogged him in the pecking order.

2013 NAB Cup:   Still rehabbing from ACL surgery last year. Won’t be back for Round 1.
