The 22-year-old, former No.2 draft pick, has struggled with injuries throughout his short career, managing just nine games with the Giants in two seasons, before crossing to Hawthorn at the end of 2014, where he has played five games.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old Zac Webster will miss the next one to two weeks after suffering a minor hamstring strain in Box Hill’s narrow win over Coburg on the weekend.
