2017 Season

1 Syd Hardly sighted all night (8 disposals). Fact side won without him was another huge positive. 2
2 Frem With Ollie Wines Port Adelaide’s best player with six goals. 9
3 Adel Well held by Kyle Hartigan, how often would you say Gray is well held? 6
4 GWS Again spent a lot of time in attack and was dangerous. But like many, had little impact late when GWS charged home. 5
5 Carl Tore the Blues apart with a huge third quarter with two goals from six attempts, ended with five goals in a best on ground display. 9
6 Bris Seemed to be afforded plenty of space and took full advantage with four goals. 7
7 WCE Unusually quiet game from his lofty standards, well held by Brad Shepherd. 4
8 GCS Too agile at ground level for May but missed a few chances that would have bolstered his day. 6
9 Bye.
10 Geel Ended night with three goals, all coming when his opponent Jed Bews was off the ground. Handy without starring. 6
11 Haw Intercept mark and goal in second term but he actually struggled for the most part; 10 disposals. Has to be injured. 3
12 Ess Looked like getting it each time it went forward early on, then had to be thrown into midfield. Frozen out in second half. 5
13 Bris Could have kicked six goals, ended up with two and dished off four others. 7
14 Coll Produced party tricks in first half to boot four on team’s six goals. Ended day with five and five score assists. 9
15 Rich A game of if’s and but’s for Robbie, one goal from four attempts summed up his day. 5
16 WCE Quiet for most of the game but exploded in the final term and finished with three goals. 6
17 NM Good contest with second gamer Daniel Nielson, left him off the hook by spraying three out of his five shots on goal. 6
18 Melb Jetta had his measure in attack, but then changed the game when thrown into midfield. Excellent second half. 7
19 StK Quality and class shone out as other slipped and fumbled. Always sure with handling. Won the game for his club. 9
20 Adel As always this season the Powers best player with a goal and 33 possessions. 7
21 Coll Has more tricks up his sleeve than a magician, wins his own footy, kicks goals, and sets them up for teammates. 7
22 WB Gave Dogs defenders fits for much of the day, but wasn’t as clean as normal. Kicked the sealer. 7
23 GCS Surprisingly well held by the Gold Coast’s Adam Saad. 5
EF WCE Sent into middle after Eagles hot start and started to get to work. Ended with 30 touches, but goalless. 7

2016 Season

1 StK Three goals in the second term was just a glimpse of his powerful all-round display. 9
2 Adel Another inspired display, but needs help, especially around the stoppages. 8
3 Ess Running out of superlatives to describe his form and the way he plays. 8
4 GWS Tired valiantly despite giving away four free kicks. Six clearances and six inside-50s. 5
5 Geel Had a dead-set howler. Dropped marks, couldn’t win the footy and looked right out of sorts. 2
6 Hamstring.
7 Hamstring.
8 Hamstring.
9 WCE Busy game. Reported for tripping LeCras late in the game. 8
10 Melb Made most of poor MRP decision mid-week to be a prime mover in midfield and pressing forward. 7
11 Coll Creative as usual with ball in hand and won ball inside and out. 7
12 WB Another masterful display, won eight clearances and delivered six inside-50s. 8
13 Frem Torn to ribbons by Barlow. 4
15 Rich Impressive midfield display, bounced back after a quiet game the previous week. 7
16 Haw Port Adelaide’s best with 10 clearances, six inside-50s and two goals. 8
17 NM Prime mover in big start and maintained the output across four quarters. 7
18 GWS Port Adelaide’s best player again, needs help through the middle and up forward. 8
19 Bris Always in the thick of the action despite being tagged throughout. 8
20 Syd Horror outing. Unable to break free at any stage and only real contribution was a goal. 3
21 Melb Got lots of the footy without hurting the opposition overly. 6
22 Adel Two goals from three attempts, had six clearances and worked over Brown. 8
23 GCS Third quarter three goal blitz set up match winning lead. A class above. 9

2015 Season

1 Frem Won nine clearances and laid eight tackles. Did all the hard stuff. 8
2 Syd Continues his All-Australian form from last season. 8
3 NM Got plenty of the footy but wasn’t as creative as we’ve seen him in the past. 6
4 Calf.
5 Adel Won his second Showdown Medal with some sublime clearance work. 9
6 WCE Once again the Power’s best with three goals and seven clearances. 7
7 Bris Great work-rate and also took care of Redden. 7
8 Rich Fought hard for 12 clearances, eight tackles and a goal. 7
9 Melb Copped a heavy knock in second term but got up to help lead the charge. 7
10 WB Silkiest player around the stoppages, gets through traffic like no-one else. 7
11 Geel Huge first half then Guthrie shut him out a little. Still an influential player. 7
12 Carl Side’s best with two goals until heavy concussion ended day before half time. 4
14 Syd Hardly sighted first term then lifted. Lot of quick handballs and one goal. 7
15 Coll Seven inside-50s, two goals and a scoring assist, a great game. 7
16 Adel Three goals and four scoring assists, one of the hardest players to match up. 7
17 Ess Hard toiling and creative player who was one of his side’s best. 6
18 StK BOG with 12 clearances (eight centre clearances) and a sublime goal. 9
19 WB Port's best, but didn't look like the same player we saw in 2014. 6
20 GWS Can create havoc from a stoppage with skill, time and space. 8
21 Haw Had leather poisoning in first term but missed two sitters. Powered on though. 8
22 GCS Relished the conditions but missed some gettable opportunities. 7
23 Frem Three goals, four clearances and four scoring assists. 7

2014 Season

1 Carl Kicked three of his four goals in final term to be key in securing the win 7
2 Adel Kicked two goals from limited opportunities. 5
3 NM Everywhere early and showed his class when the game was at its hottest. 7
4 Bris Kicked two goals, missed four and had five scoring assists. 8
5 WCE The matchwinner for Port with two goals rotating between attack and midfield. 8
6 Geel Nipped in for 2.2 and got dangerous inside forward 50 all afternoon. 7
7 GWS Worked his way into the game beautifully to have a big influence. 8
8 Frem Superb after half-time when he had 25 touches and seven clearances. 8
10 Haw Two goals, seven clearances and four scoring assists. 7
11 Melb Port’s best across half forward and pushing into midfield. Creative all afternoon. 7
12 StK Four goals and four scoring assists. 7
13 Syd Not as good as he’s been recently but still played a part on the day. 6
14 WB A whopping nine clearances, three inside-50’s and three scoring assists. 7
15 Adel Produced eight centre clearances in the first half. 6
16 Ess One of Port’s best players with four clearances and three inside-50s. 7
17 Rich Starred in attack and drifting through midfield until knocking himself out late. 8
18 Melb Port Adelaide’s best with eight clearances and four inside-50’s. 7
19 Coll Rarely allowed any space to work and apart from one goal not sighted. 4
20 Syd Magnificent around stoppages with a whopping 12 clearances. 8
21 GCS Odds on to win Port’s best and fairest after another eye-catching display. 8
22 Carl Unstoppable, had the footy on a string, danced around opponents at will. 9
23 Frem Continued rich vein of form but could have capped it with better finishing. 8
EF Rich Too slippery for his Richmond opponents with five score involvements. 8
SF Frem Played a blinder in third term with four goals to get side back into it. 8
PF Haw Electric early and announced himself as a big game player. Sensational. 8

3 SANFL Booted three good goals from 11 disposals. Ready to go. -
4 GCS Used as the sub after 12 months out with knee injury, and got through well. 3

6 NM After two weeks easing in as sub was busy and showed the sort of form wanted 5
7 Rich Kicked one goal and making significant progress from last season’s knee injury. 5
8 Carl Working into some decent form after missing plenty of footy. Two goals. 6
9 Geel Looked lively at half forward and great to see him back – 12 cont poss. 7
10 WB Had an ordinary night. Just a handful of touches and a few frees against. 2
12 GWS Subbed on for Hitchcock and had a few touches. He’s too good to be a sub though… 2
13 Syd His best game this season after last season’s knee reconstruction. 8
14 Coll Played as a high half forward and contributed five inside 50s. Not at peak yet. 5
15 Ess Got better as the game wore on and a constant danger across half forward. 7
16 Haw Kicked one goal and set up four others. 6
17 StK Kicking for goal astray but he always looked dangerous. 5
