2016 Digest:   After a handful of appearances last year he finished with a strong final month at senior level showing aggressive tackling. Carlton fans have good wraps on him. Body shape has changed over pre-season.

2016 NAB Cup:   All three games but limited use in third match. Generally good at ball-winning.
