Outlook

Medium defender from Launceston who reads the play well and has great endurance. Showed plenty of talent, toughness and poise during his first year at Simonds Stadium in 2013. Spent the early weeks of the Cats’ campaign running around in the VFL, then made an impressive AFL debut against Essendon in round seven, finishing with 17 disposals. Played four AFL games in all, before his season was interrupted by a broken cheekbone. Returned via the VFL and remained at that level for the rest of the year.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

He played some pretty consistent VFL footy. Had some little periods on the sidelines after copping a fractured cheekbone and a couple of other injuries. He made his AFL debut against Essendon and got a lot of the footy. He's got the attributes to be able to play AFL footy, there's no doubt about that. He's a very strong mark overhead. He can jump at the ball and he can kick the ball exceptionally well. He was predominantly a defender this year, but he pushed up and played on the wing a little bit in the VFL and also spent some time across half-forward.
