2016 Digest:   Showed improved form in the back half of 2015 but faces a big fight to work his way into the best 22 having been dropped back to the list. He’s not blessed with great speed so needs to make up for it with his ball use and smarts. Had a strong pre-season.

2016 NAB Cup:   Only given two brief appearances where he won the ball well. Nice depth midfielder.
