4 PM Had a few hitouts, but again struggled to get his hands on the ball both in the ruck and forward. -
5 Shoulder.
6 Shoulder.
7 VFL Back from injury and had 11 hitouts. Still not seeing much of the leather around the ground. -
8 VFL Good in the ruck and better than he has been around the ground. Learning. -
9 VFL Just the one touch – which is about his average – and little impact in the ruck. -
10 Bye.
11 Bye.
12 VFL Kicked a goal in Blues development league team. Found a bit more ball. -
13 VFL Booted two goals in Blues development league. A small step forward. -
14 VFL Booted a goal and did some handy work in the ruck. -
15 VFL Had 38 hitouts and six possessions in ruck role against Pittonet. Fair. -
16 VFL Combined with Gorringe to gain the upperhand in the ruck, then kicked a goal. -
17 VFL Fair. Had 18 hitouts and will be better for the run against Leuenberger. -
18 VFL Second ruck showed glimpses but they were minimal. Couldn't adapt to the conditions. -

22 VFL Did well in the ruck with 36 hitouts in tandem with Gorringe. -

2016 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Played in VFL trial against Richmond.
2 Didn’t play for Northern Blues.
3 VFL Good experience for the rookie and one he will learn from. Very quiet. -
4 VFL Giant ruckman grabbed a couple of nice marks. Size was a factor around ground. -
5 VFL Giant ruckman couldn’t impact the flow of the contest. -
6 VFL Big ruckman couldn’t influence flow of game and stats were very modest. -
