Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   The seasoned small forward nailed down a regular spot in 2012 and his awareness and resourcefulness around goal made a valuable contribution. A quiet finals series means he will have to keep ahead of the pack of contenders in 2013. Still has lots to offer.

2013 NAB Cup:   Has had hiccups in preparation but made return in limited form in recent weeks.
