Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Veteran surprised some by signing on for another season but after kicking 36 goals last year it appears a good move. A clinical finisher who knows where the goals are and can work well into space. Nursed through pre-season but stepped out against Fremantle to tune his form for the opener.

2014 NAB Cup:   Got through umpteenth pre-season. Played first match against Dockers and was typically proficient.

2014 Season

Played for : Western Bulldogs

1 WCE Sub. Thrown in when game was all over in third but gave something. 2
2 NM Poor kick gobbled up by Harvey – goal – at crucial stage in last quarter. Sub. 1
3 Rich Sub. Classic sub involvement with two deciding goals. 4
4 GWS Avoided the green vest and was lively in attack without breaking the game open. 5
5 Carl Sub came on in third term, promptly kicked a goal but missed others. 4
6 Adel Did some handy things but wasn’t able to hit the scoreboard heavily. 3
7 VFL Kicked two goals but wasn’t a big factor. -
8 Melb Sub. On second term to replace injured Dickson and added a goal. 3
10 GCS Sub. On for Goodes and immediately got the scoreboard ticking. 3
11 Frem The sub. Got involved as soon as he came on. Gave them something. 3
12 Bris Sub. Found space after coming on and helped claw Dogs back. 3
13 Coll Needs to play more game time if he keeps doing that. Had 22 touches. 7
14 Port Played the whole second half as the sub and pushed forward for two goals. 4
15 Suspended.
16 Suspended.
17 Suspended.
18 VFL Played his role but wasn’t the standout one would expect. -

20 Senior emergency.
21 NM Sub had a late run and got amongst it. 2
22 Syd Sub. On in second quarter and had some chances but didn’t take them. 2

2013 Season

Played for : Western Bulldogs

1 Bris Plenty of movement in attack. Kicked tree and created more. 5
2 Frem No influence at all with Spurr among others keeping him under wraps. 3
3 Rich Victim of the Dogs’ lack of forward entries. Just the one goals. 3
4 Adel Subbed out in the third term due to poor form. 2
5 Shoulder.
6 Shoulder.
7 NM Kicked a couple of goals in first term in big start then faded. Still kicked four goals. 7
8 GCS Roamed up the ground but probably needed deeper in attack. 5
9 StK Sub came on in third term and played role perfectly with goal and involvement. 3
10 Port Huge impact as a sub. Came on for Williams and provided immediate spark. 7
12 Coll Sub came on in third term. Did it well with every touch and kicked a couple. 3
13 Rich Again used as the sub and came on late for some handy touches. 2
14 Melb Chipped in with three goals. Happy not to be wearing sub vest at first bounce. 6
15 GWS The veteran was excellent, showing a level head to kick two goals in final term. 8
16 Ess Great battle with Hibberd among others. Kicked two goals and worked hard. 6
17 Haw Proved he’s a better player than a permanent sub. 28 classy disposals, two goals. 8
18 WCE Butler had the better of him when assigned. Kicked one goal but little else. 4
19 Syd Sub came on earlier than usual in third term. One of his goals was a stunner. 3
20 Carl Chimed in with two goals and used the ball craftily on most occasions. 6
21 Adel Contributed two goals in a great battle against Brown. Played a part. 5
22 Bris Missed some chances that proved costly in the wash-up. Still kicked two goals. 5
