2017 Season

Played for : Western Bulldogs

1 Coll Early goal flattened the Pies cheersquad. Involved throughout, the most important tall on the ground. 6
2 Syd Three goals in opening half then missed a soda to make it four. Very quiet after half time – 7 disposals. 6
3 Frem Worked up the ground after struggling against Hamling inside 50. Didn’t score. 4
4 NM Veteran celebrated 250th game but didn’t have a lot to celebrate other than his team won. Ended day injured after hit by Ziebell. 2
5 Ribs.
6 Ribs.
7 Ribs.
8 Ribs.
9 Geel Third-term goal only real highlight of a night he looked off the pace after time out with rib injury. 3
10 VFL Kicked two goals, but also missed some gettable shots. Took 10 marks – three contested. -

12 Syd No impact on return to the team. Only play if injuries occur to other talls. 3
13 Soreness.
14 Personal leave.
15 Personal leave.
16 Back from a few weeks off and booted three goals. Was imposing at stages.
17 VFL Presented well inside 50 and on the wings. One of Dogs' best with 18 touches. -
18 VFL Made a strong influence in the forward line and up the ground. -
19 Ess First game back for some time. Kicked a ripping goal in second term off right boot. Five effective disposals for the game. 3

21 GWS Snap goal in second term and spent time in the ruck. Battled hard but limited disposals. 3

9 VFL Bounced back to some form with four goals in close win. Needs to back it up now. -
10 VFL Bye. -

2015 Season

2 Adel Found Talia a hard nut to crack. Tough day at the office. Only one goal. 3
3 StK This year’s kicking style didn’t improve accuracy. Late goals flattered scoreline. 6
4 Ess Two goals but Hooker had better of the match-up. Work-rate was good. 5
5 Carl Rowe wore him like a glove. Kept presenting but kicking for goal terrible. 4
6 Geel Usual combination of shanks at crucial moments and bomb goals. 4
7 Rich Three goals in a great battle with Rance after quarter time. Ten marks. 7
8 GCS Played higher up the ground and booted a late goal. 6
9 NM Just the one goal but contested strongly to bring ball to ground. 5

17 Calf.

1 Frem Well beaten by McPharlin and had his quietest game for some time – four kicks, no goals. 2
2 Syd Two goals and was a presence but otherwise well held by Richards. 6
3 Geel Three effective disposals, no shots at goal with Lonergan draped all over him. 2
4 Rich Held goalless again, this time by Astbury. Confidence at a low ebb. 2
5 NM Ball came in so much early he had no choice but to find form. Four goals. 6
6 Ess First possession came 20 min into second term. Thrashed by Hooker. 1
7 Carl Strength always posed a threat in attack. 5
9 Adel Dropped sitter early and that set the tone. Only goal 25 min into third term. 3
10 WCE Struggles continue. Only goal came at 27-minute mark of final term. 2
11 StK Work rate unquestioned early but only one goal to half time. Added four. 8
12 Melb Two goals and seven marks a good reward given his workrate was huge. 6
13 WB Superb. Kicked six goals and stood up under pressure at the end. 9
14 Haw Best forward on the ground. Finished with five goals. 8
15 Carl Held to a goal by Jamison but came up the ground to take nine marks. 5
16 GCS Mental demons got him kicking for goal yet again. Proved costly. 6
17 Ess Hooker minded him and delivery was dry. Bronx cheers in last quarter. 2
18 Adel Huge battle with Talia. Did well to end with three goals and never gave up. 6
19 Port Great battle with Carlile. Ended with three goals from 10 marks to be a factor. 7
20 WCE Mackenzie wore him cheap suit style. Seven marks and one goal a quiet day. 4

2013 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 NM On Thompson, marked strongly and kicked well early. Good return of four goals. 7
2 Carl Conditions and lack of a foil didn’t aid his cause but always gave a contest. 4
3 Haw Dangerous inside forward 50 opposed to Schoenmakers. Powerful display. 8
4 Rich Monstered Rance. Took six contested marks (14 in total) and kicked seven goals. 9
5 Ess Seemed nervous throughout, dropping marks he would normally swallow. 4
6 StK Radar off (4.5) but kicked three of his four in final term. 7
7 Frem Left his kicking boots in Melbourne with 0.4. Team was bypassing him by the end. 3
8 Geel Well held by Lonergan – 13 marks a misleading in terms of impact 6
9 Syd Led well early and looked very sharp, although missed usual quota of set shots. 6
10 Ill.
11 Melb Kicked three goals and grabbed nine marks in a great battle against Garland. 6
12 WB Too strong and outmanoeuvred Roughead constantly. Bagged five goals. 8
14 Port Tried hard all game, kicked two goals but always up against two players. 5
15 Carl Four goals in first half set the side up. Enjoyed Reid’s presence. 8
16 Adel Talia had good battle with him. Kicked poorly for goal until late in the game. 6
17 GCS Had the yips, got at least two soft free kicks, only two goals were from the square. 4
18 GWS Kicked three goals but didn’t have things all his own way up front. 6
19 Ess Outmuscled Carlisle for his first goal and ended with five in stout effort. 7
20 Syd Kicked two goals but wayward and otherwise well held by Richards. 4
21 Haw Good early when the Pies were under the pump. Three goals was a decent return. 6
22 WCE Kicked three in best battle of game against dogged Mackenzie – 10 marks. 7
23 NM Looked a Coleman chance with four first-half goals. Added one more. 7
EF Port Held to two goals by Carlile and unable to impact the game aerially as he’d like. 4

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 Haw Kicking accuracy woeful and that hurt his overall influence. Kicked 2.3. 6
2 Rich Kicked lovely goal then had attention to shoulder injury. Finished strongly. 7
3 Carl Uncharacteristically butter fingered. Rarely in the game. 2
4 Port Played in spurts but did end with four goals, eight inside 50s, nine marks. 8
5 Ess Two of three goals in second term but quiet later – only 12 disposals. 6
6 WB Lake outplayed and out-psyched him but had an impact in last 40 minutes. 4
7 Bris Started with a bang but then admirably held by Maguire. 5
8 Geel Presented often and battled strongly. May need to do homework on Taylor. 5
9 Adel Disappointing display by the power forward, thoroughly out of sorts. 2
10 GCS Inaccuracy again cost him from kicking a bag (3.4) but best game for a month. 6
11 Melb Great battle with Frawley. Kicked two goals including a beauty in final term. 5
13 WCE Must be about to sign that contract as five goals signalled a return to form. 8
14 Frem Two goals but only two marks then subbed off. Beaten by McPharlin. 3
15 Carl Battled against Jamison and struggled. Delivery not great, mind you. 5
16 Geel Lonergan kept him to equal lowest tally of marks (one) in seven years. 2
17 Haw Hammered by Schoenmakers. Should sign that contract before it’s withdrawn. 2
18 GWS Relished the young GWS backline after half time: six goals, 11 marks. 8
19 StK Back to reality. Three marks and one goal in another underwhelming effort. 3
20 Syd Finished with 3.2, including a pivotal goal four minutes from full time. 5
21 NM Awful, although delivery woeful. Wasted three golden opportunities. 3
22 WCE Mostly terrible. Delivery haphazard but dropped marks and didn’t score. 3
23 Ess Career-best 20 marks as he pole-axed young Bomber defenders. 9
QF Haw Broke away from Schoenmakers in third term and finished with six goals. 8
SF WCE Only five marks and no goals, but fought hard with limited opportunities. 3
PF Syd Took a few grabs on Grundy, but supply was limited. Kicked three goals. 5
