2016 Digest:   Started the season in good touch after crossing from Port Adelaide but his form dropped away as the year progressed. Had improved his running until an ankle injury saw him head in for surgery and hasn’t resumed full running. Faces a slightly delayed start to his year.

2016 NAB Cup:   Still rehabbing from ankle surgery and won’t return to playing action until the early rounds.
