2016 Digest:   Came along nicely as the season progressed and went close to making his debut in the final round. Split his time at VFL level between half back and wing where his athleticism allowed him to be in the game a lot and use his football nous.

2016 NAB Cup:   Did a few good things against North Melbourne including a smart goal. Will begin in the VFL.
