Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Played a few different roles last year but this pre-season has been primarily with the forward group. He would be hoping that he can advance this year and at 24 would realise the club’s patience won’t last forever. Probably a make or break season.

2014 NAB Cup:   Played as forward in VFL practice match. On fringe of senior selection.
