2016 Digest:   Tried in a number of positions last year but hamstring and knee problems meant that he never got a clear run to consolidate some good form. Will again be used as a utility but plays his best footy down back.

2016 NAB Cup:   Used in a few different roles over summer and seems to be still adjusting. Only fair in NEAFL trials.
