2014 Season

Played for : Richmond

18 WCE Veteran did the one-percenters well on a night when they were the key. 5
19 GWS Drifted across half back and followed Smith at stages. Fair. 4
20 Ess Half back role and did it with a degree of poise expected from the veteran. 5
21 Adel Didn’t get a lot of the footy but precise with his disposal efficiency. 4
22 StK Had a big first quarter to help flying start. Tapered a bit but coach was happy with him. Subbed off late. 6
23 Syd The former skipper was very quiet in his 250th appearance. 4
EF Port Struggled. Might be rethinking decision to play on after that. 3

1 Carl Skills were up, although played only 75 minutes. 5
2 StK Only five effective disposals to half time and 10 for match. Kicked 1.2. 4
3 WB Rolled back to the half-back line and was a key player with cool head and ball use. 6
4 Coll Provided very little to the cause. Only five kicks which isn’t enough. 3
5 Frem Had task on Ballantyne at times and struggled a tad. Not much going other way. 4

7 Port Chasing and tackling as hard at the end of the game even with the win assured. 7
8 Groin.
9 Ess Made some errors early in defence but one of the best. 7
10 WCE Two second-quarter goals were pivotal in putting a gap on Eagles. 7

21 Ankle.
22 Ankle.
23 Ankle.
