The versatile midfielder finally made it back to the senior side for four early-season games after nearly three seasons on the sidelines following back-to-back ACL ruptures. But he couldn’t nail a regular senior berth and watched from the sidelines for the third successive year as the Hawks won the flag. Looked around for other opportunities at the end of the last season, but decided to back himself in for one more year at Waverley. Ryan Schoenmakers should be the inspiration for him in 2016. Brownlow Medal: career votes 2.
