The reliable defender produced another consistent season in 2016, often taking on the opposition key's forward and proving difficult to score against. Finished equal sixth alongside Matthew Wright in the John Nicholls Medal and spent the most time on the ground for Carlton, averaging 95.45 per cent a game. Led the Blues and was first in the AFL for one-percenters (215). Has shown he can be used with effect in the ruck and up forward. Has a big heart and never gives up. Contracted until the end of this season.

Draft history: 2006 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 62; 2011 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Carlton) No. 44 overall.
