Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   It seemed the writing was on the wall for the honest battler, but he was spared from the axe. For the second year in a row, calf problems chewed into his season, and he ended it with a bad ankle injury. Joined full training a week ago.

2015 NAB Cup:   Calf won’t be right til end of March, and injury came at a time when he needed to make every post a winner.
