Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Developing tall defender looking to make a mark after nine senior games last season. The Irishman has great athleticism for his size and has made steady progress in recent years adapting his skill set to football. No surprise to see him become a regular senior player in 2013.

2013 NAB Cup:   Displaced from senior side after NAB 1 and will have to push through NEAFL.
