Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Veteran half-back spent all bar five weeks languishing in the VFL and it’s some surprise to see him still on the list. If nothing else is a handy depth player but faces a huge task to grab a senior spot from some up-and-coming teammates.

2015 NAB Cup:   Looked good in NAB 1 but has since been returned to VFL. Rounded out preparations in VFL for Werribee last weekend.
