2015 Digest:   Consistent efforts in the VFL resulted in him breaking through for three matches at the end of the year and he found himself in demanding situations that hopefully prove to be a valuable education in defence.

2015 NAB Cup:   Stood aside for all NAB games. Needs a big season as he has been in the system for a while.
