Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   The former skipper and best and fairest winner finds himself in the unusual position of not being the No.1 choice as ruckman coming into 2013. He hurt a calf two games into last year and was sidelined for two months. Late in the year he made a couple of significant impacts, but then slipped out of the side before finishing well with a good game against Collingwood. At the moment is third ruck option behind Bellchambers and Ryder.

2013 NAB Cup:   Got some more game time into legs in reserves practice on Friday.
