Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Retained for a second year on the rookie list after playing three games last year. Question is, if he could only manage three games last year how will he fare given the club has added some young stars it will want to develop. The son of 1989 Brownlow medallist Paul provides a mature body but will likely be using it in the VFL.

2013 NAB Cup:   Dime-a-dozen type who is there as back-up if required but youngsters will get preference.
