Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Strong-bodied young defender who is yet to crack a senior game, but has shown patches at VFL level. Broke his jaw in Round 12 and missed five weeks but returned to play a lockdown role in defence. Did well in an internal trial opposed to Aaron Edwards.

2014 NAB Cup:   Developing his game in defence. Strong body, which will serve him well.
