Under pressure to establish himself in the Pies’ line-up in the last year of a three-year contract, the ex-Lion finally looked comfortable in black and white last season. The flexible runner played the opening six rounds before a knee injury sidelined him for 14 weeks. Reclaimed his spot in round 21 and played a defensive role in the Magpies’ premiership bid. Was rewarded with a new two-year deal.
