Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Mid-sized defender unsighted in trial matches and that’s not ideal for a player trying to re-establish himself in the senior side. Has the experience but now has plenty of opposition for a spot down back.

2014 NAB Cup:   Suddenly spots down back are at a premium. He hasn’t been sighted at all at senior level.
