2016 Digest:   Rookie ruckman has gone from fourth-string option to an eighth-rung emergency given the off-season additions and the return of Stanley, Vardy and Clark. Will need to produce something special to extend his career into 2017.

2016 NAB Cup:   Suddenly a mile back after addition of Smith and return of Stanley. Trained well but will need huge improvement to extend career.
