Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Super athlete who is still learning the game but has some outstanding physical attributes. One of the best performers in endurance, strength and speed in all the Suns' testing over summer and played some important roles last season. Will look to play down back or in a run with role in midfield but the competition for places in the side will be strong.

2013 NAB Cup:   Will be asked to play a few different roles but looked OK as a run-with specialist.
