Outlook

 

Hard-running midfielder who built on his terrific 2013 campaign by delivering another career-best season last year. The 2011 premiership player averaged nearly 23 disposals and kicked 23 goals and continued his emergence as a future leader. Showed tremendous resilience to play every game for the second successive season and secured his first top-three placing in the Carji Greeves Medal. Has signed on until the end of 2018.

Dale Amos' player review for 2013

Very similar to Allen Christsensen in that he had a good year and was outstanding in patches. He's still working on his consistency week in week out, which he's struggled with at times, but he's really starting to influence games. He played a few different roles this season. He played as an inside midfielder a bit more, and he also played as a defender a little bit later in the year. He is a key part of the evolution of our team, driving the group forward and becoming a leader. He's taken big steps in recent times, and we hope he can take himself to the next level as a midfielder.
