2017 Season

1 -
2 GCS Late inclusion for Patton and was a handy contributor in the front half. 5
3 NM Played an opportunist’s game as the second tall target, rewarded with two goals. 6
4 Port Kicked two goals and helped keep GWS close at stages. Flies under the radar but playing a solid role. 6
5 Syd Showed trademark determination and knows his limitations. Did his bit. 5
6 WB At one stage an all-points bulletin was sent out given he was unsighted from start to finish. Ended the game injured. 1
7 Hamstring.
8 Coll Managed to concuss himself when applying front-on tackle in second quarter and took no further part. 1
9 Rich Some important touches late and used his bulk to advantage at times. 5
10 WCE Flashed in and out. Had 13 touches. 4
11 Ess Used in front half and was a bit part player. 3
12 Carl Given defensive role on Docherty but found that a tough ask. Given he wasn’t getting ball himself it wasn’t a great day. 2
13 Bye.
14 Bris Not only did a brilliant job numbing Zorko but was work well the other way and land a couple of goals including a 50m bomb. 8
15 Geel Got injured early and looked out of sorts. Fumbled at times and panicked when he got it; 11 possessions. 3
16 Haw Unsighted. Six touches and only two tackles. A depth player might struggle when GWS have a fit list. 1

10 Senior emergency.
11 NEAFL Very good again with four goals and plenty of tackles. Showed great leadership. -
12 Syd Serviceable in first game since 2013. Kicked a freakish goal in last term. 4
