Outlook

 

A strong-marking ruck/forward who played seven games and booted 11 goals in 2014 after being elevated to the senior list. With Geelong’s tall stocks decimated, the ultra-competitive big man stood up to be counted and booted three goals in last year’s nail-biting semi-final defeat against North Melbourne.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

Didn't quite establish himself in our AFL team this year. Kicked a lot of goals in the VFL and marked the ball really well. He was a key player in our VFL forward line. He probably got squeezed out of our AFL side by Blicavs, but he's a great athlete, a real workhorse, and we think he has a bright future as a key position player. It is likely that he will be elevated to our senior list.
