2016 Digest:   Midfielder got a taste of senior action late last year when injuries decimated the Lions and showed his willingness to work with six tackles against Adelaide and seven against the Hawks. Has a tough task to break into the team given the midfield depth.

2016 NAB Cup:   A 10-disposal effort against the Suns then returned back to the NEAFL where he will ply his trade. Could get a call-up at some point.
