2012 Digest:   Keen to overcome a year that ended in his seeking a trade. He had foot, quad and calf problems and never got going but is now OK and has adjusted his running technique as part of rehab. Has hardly missed a beat in pre-season.

5 VFL OK down back but made a few poor errors. -
6 GWS Solid game defensively and ran forward to contribute a goal. 6
7 StK His ability to hit targets when given chances was not up to scratch. 3
8 Adel Tried hard but he lacks a little nous when he gets the footy. 3
9 Melb Went to Howe and did a good job nullifying his influence on the contest. 5

12 VFL OK across half back. Seemed to gain some confidence. -
13 VFL One of the Blues better performers. Had a go. -
