2016 Digest:   Has to produce this year after a season where he didn’t manage a senior game. Up until missing the last month with an ankle problem he was used effectively by Sandringham as a defender instead of his previous forward role. After ankle surgery has been in main training group since Christmas.

2016 NAB Cup:   Against North began in defence which is where he played reserves last year.
