Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Geelong discard gets another chance at the Demons and with four years under his belt has the experience to make an impact. Played some good games in the VFL last year for the Cats but has lacked the confidence to take himself to the next level. Can the new surrounds bring that out of him? Struggles in the one-on-one contests.

2013 NAB Cup:   Former Cat has at least put himself into selection mix but might have to work way in through VFL.
