Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Having handed in the captaincy, Maxwell must concentrate on his game. Now in the twilight of his career, and with the pressure valve loosened, the 198-game veteran is in great nick and ready to prove any doubters wrong.

2014 NAB Cup:   Former skipper is in good nick and will resume in his customary role across half back.

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

3 Carl Good defensively, a steadying influence, but unable to generate attacks. 6
4 Port Dropped off his man effectively – three inside 50s/four rebounds 50s. 6
5 Ess Crucial when it counted and kept his cool under pressure. 6
6 WB Got the job mainly on Dahlhaus and did it superbly. Kept him goalless. 8
7 Bris Important cog in a tight defence. 7
8 Geel Handy at moments but not a factor offensively. 4
9 Adel Led the troops well in the absence of so many key defenders. 5
10 GCS Like his fellow defenders never placed under pressure. Sound. 6
11 Melb Magner played defensive on him so disposal numbers well down. 4
13 WCE Can’t think of a contest he lost. 8
14 Frem Came across third man up at times and pressure good. Did what he had to. 6
15 Carl Duigan defensive on him and while he was solid, Duigan kicked three goals. 5
16 Geel Cats didn’t try to shadow him and he played defensive role well. 6
17 Haw Tried very hard but sheer weight of ball coming in proved telling. 6
18 GWS Comfortably kept the GWS forwards at bay and even kicked a nice goal. 6
19 StK Skipper had Gilbert working defensively on him at times which limited impact. 4
20 Syd Excellent performance from the skipper, who found space in defence. 6
21 NM Forgettable night ended with injury. 4
23 Ess Seemed to injure hip just before half time, but played out game. Ruck support. 4
QF Haw On Breust who started strongly then had other jobs. Reported for bump. 5
