The big ruckman had a delayed start to last year’s pre-season campaign due to surgery which limited his influence in the early part of the season, before being struck down by a hamstring injury.

But he built his form over the second half of the season, including a career-best 53 hit-outs against Carlton in round 17.

He’ll be looking to return to his absolute best this year as he approaches game 100.

Draft history: 2009 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 57; 2010 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Sydney) selection No. 101.
