Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Returns for a third season on the rookie list thanks largely to a series of solid performances in last year’s VFL finals series. Despite turning 26 in April the former basketballer still has a way to go in football development and will see plenty of game time in the NAB Cup.

2013 NAB Cup:   Been solid in the VFL but not sighted in the senior ranks. Expected to step up in VFL role.
