Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Raw ruckman who has developed well at VFL level. The No.1 ruck for North Ballarat last season, a fine effort given his 2011 season was ruined by injury. Will battle Daniel Currie and Majak Daw for the back-up position behind Goldstein. The fact he did not play the NAB Cup opener suggests that right now the former Eastern Ranges star is fourth in line.

2013 NAB Cup:   Youngster continues to develop in the VFL and will do so this year barring injury crises.
