3 Senior emergency.
4 Senior emergency.
5 WAFL Bye. -
6 Personal leave.
7 WAFL Immense in midfield. Had 35 possessions and a whopping 15 clearances to help Peel to victory. -
8 Rich Got involved enough to help keep the wheel turning off a wing. Four tackles and three inside-50s to go with 22 disposals. 6
9 Carl One of the main contested ball winners as he tried to remodel his game. 6
10 Adel Laid six tackles and had three inside-50’s and didn’t impact the scoreboard either. 4
11 WAFL Won the ball well to end with 27 possessions and eight clearances. Still has a bit to give. -

17 WAFL Another meh performance. 58 per cent from 19 touches. Not sure where his career is at. -
18 WAFL Had six clearances, as he played as an inside midfielder and on the wing at times. Composed with the ball in hand. -
19 WAFL Played most of the game on the ball. Worked and ran hard for most of the day. -
20 GCS Not prominent in his return to AFL and must use the ball better. 4
21 Syd Started in defence and turned it over and gave no defensive effort. Just six effective disposals from his 16. 3
22 Senior emergency.
23 Senior emergency.

2016 Season

1 WB Started on a wing on Suckling and had little impact. One of many Dockers to have a dirty one. 4
2 GCS Kicked terribly. He’s in the team because of his kicking too. 4
3 WCE Needs to do more. His run is a key part of the team. It is missing. 4
4 NM Had 17 touches on the outside and was in and out for much of the night. 5
5 Carl Kicked poorly and that put the team under pressure. 5
6 Adel Great contributor in the engine room and knows when to peel outside. 7
7 GWS A welcome return to form. Kicked the ball well after some recent struggles. 7
8 Haw Quiet overall and had minimal effect. 3
9 Rich Had plenty of the ball. Gave the team some drive. 6
10 StK Stats flattered him and he only seemed to bob up and down in the game. 4
11 Ess Pushed forward and had five inside 50s. Also kicked a goal. 6
12 Bris Roamed around the wing with little pressure from the opposition. 6
13 Port Had 24 touches. Needed to use it better. 5
14 Coll No touches in first quarter. Ordinary night. 2
16 Melb Made some errors by foot and drifted in and out of the game. Game at the crossroads. 4
17 Geel Got on the end of a few but only one inside-50. Five tackles and one clearance. 5
18 GCS Used his trademark long left boot to put the ball inside 50 nine times. 7
19 Syd No impact despite 22 touches. 4
20 WCE Turned the ball over. Wasted too many kicks. 5
21 Adel Kicked poorly. Needs to use the ball better. 5
22 GWS Faded after a productive first half. Weight of GWS numbers telling in the end 6
23 WB Arguably his best game of the season. Better with his kicking this week. 7

2015 Season

1 Port Turned the ball over a lot but also kicked two goals. 6
2 Geel One lovely running goal and did what he was asked off a wing. 6
3 WCE Slaughtered the Eagles on the outside with 10 inside-50s. Another Docker in great touch. 8
4 Syd Nothing to write home about. Did some nice things. 5
5 Melb Roamed wing to do damage all day as the in-and-under brigade fed him. 7
6 Ess His seven inside 50s made him a damaging player. 6
7 WB Left boot proved pivotal on the outside and found a lot of space. 6
8 NM Had five inside 50s from 25 disposals. Hurt the Roos. 6
9 Adel Seven inside-50s and six tackles. 6
10 Rich Given no room to more and unable to break the shackles. 4
11 GCS A few nice things but not a big factor. 4
13 Coll OK first half then went right out of the contest after half time (four disposals). 5
14 Bris Kicked two crucial goals and always looked to gain yardage with the ball. 6
15 Haw Needed to impose himself more often than he was able to. 4
16 Carl Gave the team run and regularly drove the ball inside 50. 6
17 Rich Had four shots for goal in first 20mins for no result. Kept running hard. 6
18 GWS His work forward of centre was important. 6
19 StK Solid effort and was always running and creating. 6
20 WCE Just 10 disposals. Barely sighted. 3
21 NM Poor outing on a wing. Just 12 touches and no impact. 3
22 Melb Kicked three goals and was at his best early. 7
23 Rested.
QF Syd Eight inside-50s off a wing gave the side opportunities to score. 6
PF Haw Workmanlike effort but often rushed with his kicking. 5

2014 Season

1 Coll Forced the ball forward quickly in any way he could. Even a couple of torps on the run. 7
2 GCS OK in patches – 10 kicks, four inside-50s and one goal. 4
3 Haw Kept flying the flag and one Docker who cut through. Nice late goal. 7
4 Ess Provided his customary run and was able to hit the scoreboard, which was a bonus. 7
5 Syd With seven inside 50s, he did his best to get the side moving forward. 6
6 NM 23 touches and used them fairly well but needed to hit the scoreboard in dour tussle. 6
7 WCE Did as he pleased roaming through the middle of the ground, 7 inside 50s. 7
8 Port Fumbled and picked bad options. Copped a spray from the coach. 4
9 Geel Even effort. Six inside-50s, a goal and nine contested possessions. 6
11 WB Off target with three points. Flashed in and out. 5
12 Adel Busy and generally effective. 3
13 Rich Quiet day but it mattered little. Two inside-50s then subbed out in third term. 1
14 Bris Dangerous all game and was a constant positive force. 6
15 WCE Provided run and link play on the outside to be a factor in the end result. 6
16 Melb Tagged by McKenzie but was able to break free for two classy goals. 6
17 GWS Got loose from two goals and seven contested possessions. 6
18 StK Was one of the better-performed Dockers. 6
19 Carl Three effective disposals in the first half and seven for game. Struggled. 3
20 Geel Used defensively at times but worked into game to play a part. Eight inside-50s. 6
21 Haw Flashed in out and but added some outside flair. 6
22 Bris Celebrated 200th game with sharp goal and 20 disposals in a memorable win. 6
23 Port Looked good at times with long kicking 5
QF Syd Struggled on Jetta and eventually subbed out after only eight touches. 3
SF Port Made some poor errors but then kicked a great goal. An up and down night. 5

2013 Season

1 WCE Given a rocket at half time and responded in great fashion. Played a big role. 6
2 WB Provided some rebound from half back – four inside-50s and six tackles. 5
3 Ess Effectiveness down but kept giving. Had chances to win game late. 6
4 Haw Won his fair share of ball, but kicking was haphazard at times. 5
5 Rich Initially matched on Martin and didn’t have a big night. 4
6 GCS Well held by Prestia, and copped a knock on the leg. 4
7 Coll Had it 17 times, but kicking efficiency down on the night. 5
8 Syd He was an important link to goal, but blew some chances to score himself. 5
9 Melb Dangerous pushing forward (2.2) and linked well through the middle. 6
10 Adel His first game back at AAMI Stadium as a Docker and came out a winner. 6
12 Bris Used speed effectively at times. Played his part. 6
13 NM Worked hard and is becoming a more rounded player. 5
14 Geel Dockers’ best – eight inside-50s, seven tackles and good ball use. 8
15 StK Breakaway pace was a weapon. 6
16 WCE One nice goal but otherwise quiet. 3
17 Rich Spent long periods opposed to Grigg and they fought an even duel. 6
18 Adel Solid effort without starring. Three contested possessions in a tight, dour contest. 5
19 Carl Drove the ball inside 50 seven times to keep piling the pressure on. 6
20 GWS Tagged by Whiley at times but still found enough space to find it 25 times. 6
21 Melb One of his better games for his new club and constantly provided incisive movement. 8
22 Port Showed maturity in making contribution despite Cornes’s attention. 5
23 StK Appeared to be running with Curren. OK at times. 5
QF Geel Even effort that helped keep the Cats on the back foot all match. Creative effort. 7
PF Syd Linked well on the outside but was a little bit sloppy at times by foot. 6
GF Haw Ball use and selfish decision-making dampened his impact. 4

2012 Season

Played for : Port Adelaide

1 StK Well held by Dean Polo and was not at his creative best. 3
2 Ess Nine touches first half and ended with 21 but only 62% efficient. 5
3 Syd Still managed four inside 50’s playing across half back and heavily tagged. 4
4 Coll Eight inside 50s and six rebound 50s from half back. 7
5 Adel Tried hard all evening with little reward. 5
6 SANFL Dropped but responded well for Sturt. -
8 NM Had the ball on a string and his penetrating kicking was a delight. 9
9 GCS One of the Power’s best early when the game was hot. Solid second half. 7
10 Carl Back to his blistering best and kicked a great left foot snap in the second term. 6
11 Haw Like Hartlett was targeted and couldn’t break the shackles of his markers. 4
12 WB Hard tag by Picken. Nine rebounds so rarely dangerous forward of centre. 6
14 Geel Used across half back and had five rebounds. Tried hard but not a huge factor. 6
15 Adel Taken out of the game by van Berlo, got some cheap disposals late. 4
16 Ess Finding plenty of the footy but his disposal efficiency is down. 6
17 Melb Stats were more impressive than his actual impact on the game. 5
18 Frem Did win plenty of the footy across half back but was not damaging. 6
19 GWS Did his best to lift his team and provide some run. 5
20 Haw Gave great run especially in the first half. One of the few to run the game out. 6
21 WCE Great at getting the footy inside 50 (seven times) and out of 50 (four). 7
22 Bris Started as the sub and came on after half time with minimal impact. 3
23 Rich Found some space at times but only teased...as he’s done all year. 6
