2016 Digest:   Played three games early in the season before being sent back to the VFL level where, apart from a few cameos, he struggled to have the impact a player of his size should at that level. A groin injury sidelined the key position utility for the last month and really needs to repay the Pies’ investment in him. Make or break time in his fifth season.

2016 NAB Cup:   Elevated from the rookie list after an eye-catching pre-season that netted eight goals as a marking target in attack.
