2016 Digest:   Returns on a one-year contract after being linked with a move to Fremantle during the trade period. Has had an interrupted pre-season but will play a vital role in the team after Ryder’s suspension and should benefit from the addition of Charlie Dixon.

2016 NAB Cup:   Seems refreshed after struggling at the back end of last year. Ability to lead up at the ball important with Dixon addition.
