Andrew WALKER

#1  

Age: 32yr 10mth Games: 203 Born: May 18, 1986
Height: 190cm Weight: 89kg Position: DEF/FWD

2016 Digest:   Knee problems gouged deeply into last year (his best run of consecutive games was five) and his training is tightly managed. In a side lacking scoring power his ability around goals means his best place for the side is probably there.

2016 NAB Cup:   Had his first run in the last NAB Challenge match and played as a forward in half a game.

2 Calf.
3 Calf.
4 Calf.
5 Calf.
6 Calf.
7 Coll Missed two early set shots and only had three kicks for the afternoon. Blues’ quietest player. 1
8 Port Had a dirty day in the front half but looked happier when behind the ball. 3

10 Geel Henderson was his marker for a lot of the contest. One goal and four inside-50s. 6
11 Bris Provided a physical presence in the front half. His bump on Christensen was telling. 5
12 StK Three goals but his input was fleeting and Gilbert had the better of him. 4
14 GWS Potent effort up forward with 3.1. Starting to find some consistency. 5
15 Coll A milestone to forget. Struggled up front and offered little when in the guts. 3
16 Adel No impact whatsoever at any stage. Might be lucky to keep his place. 2
17 Knee.
18 Knee.
19 Knee.

5 WB With Stringer. Generated run out of defence. 6

15 Coll Fumbled, made skill errors and Bucky (No. 17 ticketholder) suggests trade bait. 4

2013 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Used in defence and got a lot of ball but he was needed up forward. Good game. 7
2 Coll Booted the first three goals but was then restrained. 5
3 Geel Mostly loose across half back and relished freedom. Gave great drive all night. 9
4 WCE Provided rebound from the back half while playing on Darling. Among the best. 7
5 Adel Has found a home in the back half and had the ball on a string with 32 touches. 8
6 Melb Great drive again between the arcs – five inside-50s and a goal on the day. 8
7 StK Great four-bounce goal in opening term a highlight. Worked hard all night. 6
8 Port Ran hard from defence and used the ball beautifully on both sides. 7
9 Bris Battled hard but not his best outing this season. 5
10 GWS Another fine performance. Combined flair and aggression from defence. 8
11 Ess Read the play beautifully off half back. 8
12 Haw Lewis effectively shut him down but he never stopped trying. Ball use first class. 6
14 Syd Huge first term but was reigned in after that. Spent long periods up forward. 6
15 Coll Used down back on Reid at times. Couldn’t question work-rate – six rebounds. 6
16 StK Dennis-Lane tried to draw him out of the play but he still had influence. 5
17 NM Began on Thomas. Couple of mistakes early but fought back and did well. 6
18 GCS Controlled the back half well and got plenty of the footy. 7
19 Frem Defensive capabilities questionable and gave Walters too much room. 3
20 WB Dickson troubled him early then was shifted to Grant who starred. Struggling to defend. 4
21 Rich Link up beautifully through the middle and out of defence. 7
22 Ill.
23 Port Drove the footy outside defensive 50 on nine occasions. 7
EF Rich OK without excelling in usual style. 5
SF Syd Big first quarter and worked hard throughout. 7

7 StK Great battle with Gilbert and he at least looked threatening at times. 6
8 Adel Smith had him covered but his workrate was up to scratch up the field. 7
9 Melb Five inside 50s and kicked two goals to play a part roaming up the ground. 6
10 Port Laid 10 tackles and kicked a goal but was not as team focused on occasions. 5
11 Geel Took a screamer and a great source of drive with his pace from half forward. 7
