2017 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 NM Relished having Mitchell riding shotgun to ease the load inside the contest. Six clearances and five tackles. 7
2 StK Tough amid congestion. Won a lot of hard balls and fed them out to the runners. 6
3 Rich Was up against Martin in a midfield battle for most of the game, and was beaten thoroughly. Quiet game to his standards 6
4 Syd Had four first-half clearances and won the ball well in tight. Good numbers and played his role, but not his best. 6
5 Haw Precision handballing caught the eye in early exchanges, but couldn’t cover the ground as well as Hawks opponents. 6
6 Frem Busy all night with 32 touches and one goal. 8
7 Port Kept the Eagles in the game with his brilliant centre clearance work. Won nine clearances and had six inside-50’s. 8
8 WB Laid 10 tackles and that was exactly what the Eagles needed. Also had 24 touches. 7
9 Ess Another key Eagle who was well down on normal output. Outpaced in midfield. 5
10 GWS Only three clearances among his 26 touches. He didn’t hurt the Giants. 6
11 GCS In and under the packs and was another who could hold his head up. 8
12 Bye.

15 Soreness.
16 Port Started well and faded. Only two touches in the final term. 5
17 Frem Back to his ball winning self. Won five clearances and laid six tackles. Also kicked one goal. 6
18 Coll No pace but he is still a bull inside with his contested work 6
19 Quad.
20 Senior emergency.
21 Carl His 10 tackles were vital for the Eagles and he won five clearances too. His inside work was strong as usual. 6
22 GWS Mountain of work at the coalface. 31 disposals, 15 contested possessions and 10 clearances. 8
23 Adel Tackled and pressured relentlessly. Also won six clearances. 7
EF Port Lack of speed saw him flop on the ball a lot but was in Brownlow form around the ball. 10 tackles to go with 33 touches. 7
SF GWS Just one possession in first quarter with two frees against. Improved, but as slow as a treacle in career finale. 4
