Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Played all but one game in his first season with the Crows but the former Cat’s 26 goals were the lowest tally in five seasons in the AFL. How he is utilised by coach Phil Walsh alongside Walker and Jenkins will be interesting.

2015 NAB Cup:   Thrown back for long periods in opening two NAB matches then dropped back to SANFL last week and again played defence.
