2012 Digest:   Key defender suiting up for potentially his last fling at AFL level. Coming off a solid year in which he played 23 games and finished 10th in the best and fairest from full back. His ability to take on the strongest forward and match muscle is a key to the defence. Line him up on any opposition tall and tick off the contest as neutral (at worst).
