Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Hard to believe that he is entering his 14th AFL season. Had the bitter experience of missing the 2012 Grand Final with a hamstring tear and it made a material difference to the way in which Hawthorn delivered the ball from the back half.

2013 NAB Cup:   Just kept the legs rolling over. Important player now that Suckling is sidelined.
