Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Evergreen star was forced to undergo a minor knee cleanout post the club’s Arizona camp but club hopeful he is back on track and ready to go for his 16th season in the top flight. Not expected to play a major part in the pre-season (if any) but Round 1 is on the radar.

2013 NAB Cup:   Veteran’s body showing signs of wear and tear and might not make it to line for opener.
