The Victorian-raised flyer from the outer northern suburbs was recently promoted to the Storm’s roster from a development role and is in the running to make his debut, potentially in Thursday’s season-opener at AAMI Park should coach Craig Bellamy opt to start him ahead of George Jennings or Reimis Smith.
