2016 Digest:   Has had a change of role to midfield-forward after playing most of his footy in the back half. He battled last year to win over the selectors but has worked hard to get the basic things right and get his body to an AFL standard.

2016 NAB Cup:   Used as a half forward but is struggling a touch with the transition. Needs to find form early in the year.
