2014 Digest:   Injury riddled over the past few seasons, the strong-bodied utility has slipped down the depth chart and will have to work his way into the line-up via the VFL. Injured his knee in the intra-club last week and faces another short stint on the sidelines.

2014 NAB Cup:   Injured his knee in an intra-club match last month and is close to resuming in the VFL.

2013 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1 Port No real impact on the contest across half forward. 3
2 VFL Starred up forward with six goals. Great response to being dropped. -
3 WCE Played as a defensive forward and did a reasonable job curtailing Hurn. 6
4 GWS Showed great courage at times and while stats not huge he had a presence. 5
5 Bris More involved this week at half forward. Attacked ball and man with vigour. 5
6 Carl Has a presence about his game. Needs to find more footy though. 5
7 GCS Couldn’t question courage but not enough ball to worry the Suns. 2
8 Rich Courage and commitment could not be questioned. Has to win more ball. 4
9 Frem Couldn’t get into the game and made some elementary mistakes. Confidence is shot. 2
10 Haw Subbed on in third term and grabbed eight touches. Did what he could. 2
11 Coll Sub. On third term but failed to provide the run required. 1

20 GCS Worked hard to apply defensive pressure up forward and kicked one goal. 4
21 Frem Continues to struggle at starvation corner. Needs to find a new role. 3

1 VFL Got another game under his belt after injury setback. -
2 VFL Got through the game OK. Nearing a return. -
3 Rich Might be headed back to VFL after a poor outing – nine disposals. 2
4 WB On at start of final quarter. Only a couple of touches. 1
5 StK Late inclusion added muscle to defence. Inflicted a bone jarring bump. 5
6 Geel Did a few good things down back then subbed off. Not the worst. 4
7 VFL Not his best outing but long kicking was handy. -
9 Carl Didn’t get into game playing mostly up forward. Not where his career is at. 3
10 Ess Hard nut who blotted Davey out of the game. 5
11 Coll Threw himself in, including crude elbow into Fasolo’s kidneys. 4
14 Bris Competed hard but needs to find more of the ball to have an influence. 4
15 Rich Hardly sighted then knocked out by Morris in marking contest in third term. 3
18 VFL Solid, yet unspectacular game. -
19 GCS Tough effort across half forward. Loves the physical side of the game. 6

21 GWS Started on the bench and had a quiet afternoon in Canberra. 3
22 Adel Battled hard all night but wasn’t prominent after quarter time. 3
23 Frem Aggressive but didn’t have enough of the ball. 4
