His struggles reflected the team’s and he was often deployed further up the ground to provide a marking option.

He finished 2016 with career-high averages for marks (6.4), disposals (14.4) and uncontested possessions (7.4), reflecting a continued progression away from the goalsquare.

Underwent an ankle reconstruction and finger surgery in the off-season.
