Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Controversy seems to have followed the small forward over summer, but he has developed into a useful piece of the attack. Not only does he chip in for a goal or two, but his defensive pressure and tackling are valuable. Had post-season surgery and has been eased into training but played against Collingwood at the weekend.

2014 NAB Cup:   A few surgeries held him out early, but played past two weeks in VFL trials.

4 Coll Battling hard until a severely corked buttock forced him off in third term. 4

6 Geel Kicked four goals so not much more he could have done as a small forward. 8

19 Hamstring.
20 Hamstring.
21 Hamstring.
