Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Unstoppable veteran in midfield and early indications are that he looks sharp and keen to produce yet another big season. A knee injury in mid-season was a setback, but he returned to play a crucial role in the finals. A wonderful servant of the club.

2013 NAB Cup:   Solid as ever and primed to go.

22 NEAFL Bye. -
