2015 Season

1 Melb Worked hard and one of the few to produce consistent output. Two goals. 7
2 StK Ran riot with 17 touches in first term but then reined in to an extent. 7
3 Geel Huge first half (18 disposals) then was shut down to a degree – eight clearances. 8
4 GWS Battled bravely against the tide. Continued good start to the season personally. 7
5 Bris Workmanlike from the acting skipper, continues a fine season. 6

7 WCE Won more than his fair share of the ball in contests. 6
8 Coll Accumulated a bit of the footy and busted a gut all night. 6
9 Haw Won a share of the ball but Hawthorn always had him under pressure. 6
10 Syd Started slowly and well contained by formidable Swans. A nice late goal. 4
11 Frem Industrious through midfield and won plenty of the footy. 7
13 Carl Led team in disposals and did what he could around ball. Lacked support. 7
14 NM Outstanding start and good consistent four-quarter effort. 7
15 WB Good ball winner but like many teammates ran out of legs. 6
16 GWS Much quieter than his season to date. 4
17 Adel Disappointing game from his usual high standards. Did lay 10 tackles though. 5

2 Syd Such an important Sun, led the way with eight tackles and five inside 50s. 6
3 Bris Good match-up with Adcock and kicked a freakish soccer goal late in the game. 5

2012 Season

1 Adel Even split of contested/uncontested possessions. Used handball effectively. 7
2 StK One-kick first half simply not good enough. Ended with four. 1
3 Ess Didn’t look himself early but tried all night. 4
4 Bris Held Rich until late in game when summoned to generate midfield. 7
7 GWS Unusually quiet, maybe still a bit underdone due to injury. 3
8 WB Just the nine touches opposed to Griffen. Poor outing. 3
9 Port Limited possessions opposed to Hartlett. Needs to find the ball more. 5
10 Coll Stunk it up. Couldn’t get near it and played as though he wasn’t that fussed. 1
11 StK Minimal input. Disappointing effort from a senior player. 3
12 NM Huge improvement on last fortnight, but Suns still need more from him. 5
15 Geel Dangerous when he was playing across half forward and good up the ground 7
16 Rich Up against Houli and was rather quiet compared with last week. 4
17 Bris Continues his struggles this season. 4
19 Melb One set shot was embarrassing. Leg injury severely hampered his effort. 3
