Outlook

Skilful forward from Tasmania who was elevated to the senior list after three seasons as a rookie. Was outstanding in the 2012 VFL Grand Final. Made his AFL debut against Port Adelaide last year, but dropped out of the team after suffering a quad injury. Played out the year in the VFL.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013 

He forced his way into the side with some great VFL form, and he played quite well against Port over there on debut. But his progression was held up when he hurt his quad and missed a few weeks. It was frustrating. We liked his marking and pressure inside the forward 50, and he might have stayed in the team for a while if not for the injury. It's great that he's had a taste of AFL footy, so he's well prepared for hopefully becoming a regular fixture in the team next year. He's been on our rookie list for three years, so he has to be either elevated or delisted, and I think he's going to go up onto the senior list.
