Age: 24yr 6mth Games: 14 Born: Jul 14, 1994
Height: 180cm Weight: 77kg Position: FWD

2016 Digest:   Knee injury sidelined him after Round 9 and with just three senior games for the season he was then delisted but was redrafted as a rookie. He can be a good ball-winner at his best and Essendon thought it was worth throwing him a lifeline.

2016 NAB Cup:   Form good in intra-club, but hasn’t shown in NAB Challenge. Good last week at VFL level.
