2016 Digest:   Since his electric start in 2014 he has found it harder to make his way through the system. Proved rather hot and cold last year and struggled to make an impact in his handful of senior games. Has put in a strong summer with more consistency around his work but others have superceded him in the small forward role.

2016 NAB Cup:   Occasional good inputs against Roos and the good form at Sandy. Needs to grab early spot.
