#37  

Age: 24yr 1mth Games: 2 Born: Feb 23, 1995
Height: 187cm Weight: 86kg Position: FWD

2016 Digest:   Third-year player elevated to the senior list after making his debut in 2015. Got through a full pre-season to date but faces a big task to break into a senior line-up well stocked with mid-sized forwards.

2016 NAB Cup:   Named in squad for all three NAB games but did not play a minute. Will start in VFL but no surprise to see the half forward get a run.
