Age: 25yr 3mth Games: 23 Born: May 27, 2021
Height: 191cm Weight: 86kg Position: DEF

2016 Digest:   Developing defender who can play a variety of roles. Managed only six senior games in 2015 so will be hoping a good pre-season campaign can jump him up the pecking order.

2016 NAB Cup:   Deployed down back in all three matches and held his own. Needs to start making a move in his third season.
