Height: 195cm Weight: 95kg Position: DEF

2016 Digest:   Underwent a knee reconstruction after Round 1 and missed the rest of the season. Back in full training and should be right for the start of 2016. The key backman’s biggest challenge is getting his spot back because the Eagles changed the way they played when they lost so many tall defenders.

2016 NAB Cup:   Injured his finger against Gold Coast and will miss the first part of the season.
