2016 Digest:   Injury cost him last year but he was in the team for one final. A tough, negating player who can be relied upon as a defensive forward or a lockdown backman. With reduced rotations, there is talk clubs will turn to a negative midfielder. He could get that job.

2016 NAB Cup:   Doesn’t appear to be in the selectors’ minds at the moment.
