Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   A surprise winner of the 2013 Jack Dyer Medal. Progressed from a fringe player to one of the most valued members of the line-up due to his ability to take on big tasks and do the little things for his teammates. Kicking remains a question mark under pressure, but you cannot fault his effort and work-rate. Missed the Melbourne game due to groin soreness.

2014 NAB Cup:   Still a week away after a hamstring problem over summer.

5 Bris Prolific ball-winner and kept going all night. 7
6 Haw Started in middle on Burgoyne and was good in his 150th game. 6

9 Melb One of the best with 30 touches and a goal. In everything. 8
10 GWS Subbed out early with groin soreness. 1

13 Hip.
14 Hip.
15 VFL Good early on return but drifted out of the game in second half. -

2013 Season

Played for : Richmond

1 Carl Rotated half forward/midfield and OK. Big numbers but kicking still a worry. 7
2 StK Went with Hayes at times. Battled but he lacks polish to hurt opponent. 4
3 WB Spent time on Cooney and battled hard. A brave competitor. 6
4 Coll Gave very little. His disposal and decision making not up to scratch in big games. 3
5 Frem Might be time for a stint in the VFL. Made more mistakes than Joan Collins. 3
6 Geel Ran with Selwood at times and worked hard despite shortcomings. 5
7 Port Got the ball inside 50 on five occasions playing on the wing. 6
8 Melb Got a lot of footy and handy but again ran at below 65% efficiency. 5
9 Ess Probably the Tigers’ best and never stopped trying. 7
10 WCE Shadowed Gaff/Masten and did a good job. Kicked a long freak bouncing goal. 7
12 Adel Shadowed Dangerfield and while beaten he kept offering something offensively. 6
13 WB Can be scrubby at times by foot but stuck to his task strongly. Kicked a freak goal late. 6
14 StK Strove very hard around the field. 6
15 NM Started on Swallow but hampered by an early ankle issue. Tried hard in losing cause. 5
16 GCS Huge task on Ablett and did it very well. Hurt the champ with two goals. 7
17 Frem Spent time on Mundy and Fyfe and did a decent job while winning his own ball. 6
18 Syd Tagged O’Keefe and although shaded, did well. 6
19 Haw Two goals in final term to help kill off the Hawks. Six clearances. 6
20 Bris A relentless work-rate meant he was unstoppable and crisp foot skills. 9
21 Carl Battled hard and laid a game high eight tackles. 7
22 GWS Kept Ward relatively quiet and found the ball well himself. 7
23 Ess Got the better of Zaharakis and continued his fine season with another two goals. 7
EF Carl Went to Murphy then to Judd as coach tried to plug holes. Never stopped trying. 6

2012 Season

Played for : Richmond

1 Carl Gave usual wholehearted effort. Shown up for pace a couple of times. 6
2 Coll Went to Shaw with a brief to negate his run. Succeeded fairly well. 5
3 Melb Still prone to make the odd mistake but still played a part – 21 disposals. 6
4 Geel Toiled away in the midfield for 14 disposals and a goal. Just. 5
5 WCE Battles hard but lacks any creativity in his game. Why didn’t he tag Kerr? 4
7 Syd Quiet game and committed some bad turnovers. 4
8 Ess Given key run with role on Stanton. Not much impact until late in game. 5
9 Haw You know things are going well when he’s kicking freak goals. Played a part. 5
10 StK At various stages had negating forward role on Gram and Goddard. 4
11 Frem Defensive on McPhee early then released into midfield and tried hard. 5
12 GWS Kicked one handy goal but disposal again well below where it has to be. 5
14 Adel Run with roles on Knights and Porplyzia and won his own footy. 7
17 NM Ok (7 inside-50s) but only two contested possessions and one clearance. 5
18 Carl Good start, but hurt in second quarter and subbed off in third. 6
19 Bris Solid output from the experienced utility. Showed his versatility. 6
20 WB OK at times but hardly a starring role. Why does he always go sideways? 4
21 Frem Didn’t use the ball well. 4
22 Ess Started in attack and did his bit. 5
23 Port Won some footy but he isn't the bloke you want winning it. Can’t kick. 4
