Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Former Pie is taking steady steps towards becoming a regular defender. Not flashy but can do a job and has the height to stand talls or smalls. Trained well and pre-season form was solid.

2014 NAB Cup:   Wrapped up his spot in defence. Very impressive over pre-season and is fitter than this time last year.
