2016 Digest:   Versatile type who can play at either end and is steady in his performances. Just starting to get back into footy after an interrupted pre-season but has been consistent on the track when there.

2016 NAB Cup:   Good depth player who went back to SANFL trials after the opening week against Sydney. On the fringe.
