Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Restricted to eight games last year because of a shoulder reconstruction. Playing his last season the veteran needs 18 games to reach the 250-game milestone. Turns 32 in the first week of the season but has enough runs on the board to suggest he can play some part in the Pies’ 2013 push. A couple of solid NAB Cup performances wouldn’t go astray.

2013 NAB Cup:   Veteran has seen plenty of pre-season action. Given himself every chance to go out with bang.
