2016 Digest:   An experienced big-game performer thanks to his time at Hawthorn, he was able to pass on his knowledge last year and that had a big impact on the team. Reliable in defence, he can play on a variety of opponents without fuss.

2016 NAB Cup:   Got through pre-season unscathed which is a really promising sign for a player with an extensive injury history.
