Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   On the verge of senior selection early in 2014, but didn’t grab a senior spot until midway through and didn’t do enough in his three games to hold his place. A standout in running trials.

2015 NAB Cup:   Handed a tagging role in the Demons match and did well. OK in both NAB games and hasn’t harmed his long-term chances.
