2017 Digest:   Developing tall defender who covers the ground well but needs to clean up his kicking. Will develop in the VFL but is a nice size.

4 VFL Didn’t get a lot of the ball, but covered plenty of ground and played his part.
5 VFL Super defensive effort in tight win over the Zebras. Spoilt well and was able to give good rebound from the back 50.
6 VFL Impressed again down back. Defended well and got a bit of the ball. Impressing Tiger coaches.
7 VFL Struggled on bigger bodies and had a poor afternoon. He'll bounce back.
