2016 Digest:   Broke through for an AFL debut in Round 19, held his spot and continued his development as an attacking, mobile defender. Suffered a hamstring injury in the VFL semi-final loss to Sandringham but has put plenty of miles into his legs over summer and looks primed to take another step. Re-signed until the end of 2017.

2016 NAB Cup:   Being groomed down back and showed his ability to play on smalls and talls. Ahead of Frost in pecking order.
