The 19-year-old defender from South Australia suffered a number of injury set backs throughout 2012 after a blistering start for Bendigo early in the season. Davis played a key role as a tagger for Bendigo shutting down some of the key midfielders in the competition before suffering a run of injuries.
The versatile defender played every game for the Bendigo Bombers in the VFL. Davis is quick off the mark, makes good decisions and can match up on tall and small forwards. Will need to add bulk to his light frame, but has shown encouraging signs.
