Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Surprised some by retaining a spot on the list despite playing 20 games in six years. Spent all bar one game languishing in the VFL last year and if he can’t make a statement in the NAB Challenge then its hard to see a future at the Dogs.

2015 NAB Cup:   Encouraging signs against Demons and again versus Collingwood. VFL start still the likely option.
