2016 Digest:   Got a taste against Collingwood and Essendon and didn’t look out of place. Entering his fourth season the young ruckman has to start taking strides and is likely to see action in the pre-season. Could he progress past Shaun Hampson as the No.2 ruck option?.

2016 NAB Cup:   Hyped up by Tiger fans over the past few years, but again unsighted. Needs to start making ground this year.
