Outlook

 

Medium defender from Launceston who reads the play well and has excellent endurance. Showed plenty of talent, toughness and poise during his first season at Simonds Stadium in 2013 and made an impressive AFL debut against Essendon in round seven, finishing with 17 disposals. He struggled to break into the side last year, but played the final five matches including both finals.

Member of Cats VFL GF team

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.
