What they say

“He’s a bit of a loveable larrikin that comes from cricket. He can play forward and back as a third tall and potentially if he builds up his tank, he can push into midfield with his athleticism. His endurance, agility and recovery are very good and he’s really aware of those around him. I think he’s a natural defender who can go forward and he gets in the right spots,” – Ryan O’Connor (Sandringham Dragons Talent manager), Inside Football, November 2017
