Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Looked the goods early in 2014 at half back with his bravery and kicking skills but fell out of favour and ended the year in the VFL. Will get every opportunity to regain his spot but needs a good NAB Challenge.

2015 NAB Cup:   Not as impressive as last pre-season but was good in VFL defeat at weekend. Needs a big start the year.
