Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Just turned 30 but won’t relinquish his prized midfield spot to any of the young Turks knocking at the door. Important for his ability to take on lock-down roles on midfield guns if not playing an outright attack role.

2014 NAB Cup:   Working as effectively as ever in middle, but likely to miss Round 1 with hamstring strain.
