Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Retained for a second year on the rookie list after playing 17 games in his first season. Not flashy but is tough, hard and provides a strong body around stoppages. Did tire late last year so timing his effort will be key but faces stiffer competition with the arrival of some star youngsters.

2013 NAB Cup:   First rookie in history to change jumper to a lower number while staying on rookie list.

6 VFL Kept on keeping on the middle. A real workhorse.
7 VFL Bye.
8 Rich Provided much-needed presence around the footy with 11 contested poss. 6
9 Frem Worked hard throughout. How he hasn’t played since Round 1 is bizarre. 5

20 VFL Two early goals but was fairly well held in midfield.
21 VFL Massive outing with a ridiculous 51 possessions in Casey’s big win.

4 WB Quiet day and was run down at vital stage in final term. 3

7 Haw Busy in midfield early then tapered. 5
