Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   The hard-working and diligent run-with player gives his all and plays an important role the Saints need. Doesn’t take a backward step and while his kicking will never win prizes he has made some ground in that facet of his game.

2014 NAB Cup:   Not most fashionable player, but his experience and tagging should staunch the flow at times this year.
