2016 Digest:   Fifth-year player facing delisting if he can’t break into the senior side. Played 52 VFL games (17 last year) but has been unable to take the limited chances afforded to him. An outside player with sublime skill, a strong NAB Challenge is essential to ensure his season gets off on a the right note.

2016 NAB Cup:   Will be disappointed to get only one game (Collingwood) and managed nine disposals. Does not appear to have jumped up pecking order.
