Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Made the move to Melbourne last year after two premierships at Geelong. Struggled for consistent form after an impressive pre-season and was a passenger in many games towards the end of the year. Had a late start to this pre-season but has made an impact after returning to full training.

2014 NAB Cup:   One of the better performers over the past fortnight after missing the Richmond clash.

2013 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1 Port No impact offensively and showed little interest defensively. 3

7 GCS For second week in a row he was disappointing – one inside-50, no goals. 2

18 NM One of few Dees to have a dip for four quarters. 6
