2016 Digest:   The former Brisbane captain is keen to make the most of this second chance at AFL level. Played 21 games last season and, while his experience will be handy down back and through the middle, his four-goal haul in Round 23 last year – against the Bulldogs – showed he can go forward and be damaging.

2016 NAB Cup:   Former Lion skipper impressed in VFL after 10 possessions against Melbourne. If injuries strike he could get a chance.

3 Rich Tough time spent minding Newman. In the main below his usual high standard. 4
4 WCE Collected half of his 20 disposals in last term when game was decided. 5
5 GCS Needed to do more, given his experience in such a young side. 3
