The ruckman was close to selection at the end of 1989 before suffering cracked ribs late in the season. He impressed in the match against Geelong played in Toronto but didn't debut until the last four games of the 1990 home and away season before being dropped for the finals.
A bad run with injuries cost him the entire 1991 season with injury. He missed six weeks with a hamstring injury, then returned and hurt his other hamstring and finally injured his quad. He returned for two games in late 1992 after which he was delisted.
