Height: 189cm Weight: 88kg Position: DEF

2016 Digest:   Still highly rated for his ability to play on talls and smalls down back, but will face stiff competition for his place this season from more skilled youngsters. A free agent at the end of the season.

2016 NAB Cup:   Did what was required down back but will need to start very well with a host of youngsters breathing down his neck.
