Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Like Gilham, has added experience, poise and knowledge to the group after being delisted by Carlton. Will play more up forward this year but can also head back to support the group of young defenders.

2013 NAB Cup:   Played both forward and back and is expected to settle in the front half.
