Age: 23yr 1mth Games: 7 Born: Feb 03, 1996
Height: 178cm Weight: 76kg Position: DEF/FWD

2016 Digest:   Small defender or forward who had seven games in the ones last year, four of them as the sub. There have been exciting snippets of play but needs to build consistency. Came back carrying extra kilos but is on top of that now.

2016 NAB Cup:   Got stuck in during his game against Essendon, but not in best 22 at the moment.
