2017 Season

1 Coll Eight marks at half back but not a whole lot to do. 5
2 Syd Quiet start then started to get involved. Certainly not his best game but offered enough to the cause. 5
3 Frem Solid in defence without standing out. 5
4 NM Veteran defender was quiet. Hit target with all nine disposals but well below his rebounding best. 3
5 Bris Hardly sighted in first half (four disposals). Did lift to some degree but is still well below his very best. Ended with 14 touches. 4
6 GWS Still yet to rekindle his very best. Defensively cost team a goal when encroached on mark in final term. Only 11 possessions. 4
7 Rich Read the ball beautifully down back and was stout in the end. 5
8 WCE Took two contested marks and worked well in defence. Also kicked one goal. 7
9 Geel Defended pretty well on Menzel and worked to run off and provide some rebound with 20 disposals. 6
10 StK Usual solid and steady job in the back half against variety of forwards. 6
11 Bye.
12 Syd Tried to provide cover on Reid and Franklin, but found wanting at times. Bobbed up with third term goal. 4
13 Melb Seems to be going thorough the motions a tad. Never really a factor playing across half back; 12 effective disposals. 4
14 NM Snagged rare goal in first term but spent most of the night defending grimly. Battled away and did some handy things. 6
15 WCE Battled away in defence for eight marks and 21 disposals, but not his most influential game. 6
16 Adel The one Bulldogs defender you can rely on to make a stand and play strong in defence was unusually quiet. 4
17 Suspended.
18 GCS Did dome good work back, then also used in attack at stages. Looks more comfortable behind the ball. 5
19 Ess Really struggling. Beaten Stewart early then got caught out of position in defence. Confidence is way down. 2
20 Bris Took little part after sustaining serious hamstring early in the first quarter. 1
21 Hamstring.
22 Hamstring.
23 Hamstring.

2016 Season

1 Frem Looked to have damaged shoulder but was OK and took one of the marks of the year. Good again. 7
2 StK Didn’t take as many intercepts as he has before, but was steady defensively. 6
3 Hamstring.
4 Hamstring.
5 Bris Didn’t get many opportunities to intercept mark due to Brisbane’s lack of ball movement. 5
6 NM Acting skipper was solid if unspectacular. 5
7 Adel Ran hard off half back and intercepted well at times. Used ball with great precision. 7
8 Melb Took a nice mark but trailed Watts around for much of the game and couldn’t intercept. 4
9 GWS Started on Johnson, then moved to Cameron in the second term and was more than respectable. 5
10 Coll Marked everything early to continually cut off Magpie attacks. Booming goal late. 7
11 Hamstring.
12 Hamstring.
13 Hamstring.
14 Hamstring.
15 Syd Dependable in defence with good judgment. 5
16 Rich Patrolled back half with aplomb and was brilliant in one-on-ones. 7
17 GCS Made it look easy in defence. Eight of his nine marks were intercepts. 8
18 StK On Membrey at start and was resolute in defence. 6
19 Geel Menzel and others restricted his offensive output. Six effective disposals. 3
20 NM Captain was solid down back and played his part. 6
21 Coll No impact in air in first half, but slightly better later on. 5
22 Ess Major concern for Bulldogs after landing badly on ankle in third term. 5
23 Ankle.
EF WCE Hobbled early after returning from injury but soldiered on and handy in back half. 5
SF Haw Kicked opening goal – a steadier – but not a big game from the acting skipper. 4
PF GWS Right back to his absolute best intercepting and reading play down back. 7
GF Syd Captain showed the way with courage and intercept marking in defence. 7

2015 Season

1 WCE Swept across half back but certainly not a huge factor in the victory. 4
2 Rich Provided some run and rebound at half back and kicked sealing goal. 6
3 Hamstring.
4 Adel Picked up midfielders resting in attack and handled them well. 6
5 Syd Kicked winning goal with a mid-air Pele sort of arrangement. 6
6 StK Strong start to game but lost footing at crucial time to allow Billings in for sealer. 6
7 Frem Mayne got a bit of space in 1st term but then provided great defensive cover. 7
8 Melb Battled hard down back and tried to provide some run and rebound. 6
9 GWS Terrific game. Had a disruptive influence on GWS attack as defender. 8
10 Port Great game in defence, his intercept marking is elite. 7
12 Bris Went to Green in third term. Solid without being exceptional. 5
13 StK Perfect intercept game in defence and continually cut off Saint thrusts. 9
14 Carl Continued fine season in defence by constantly chopping off Carlton attacks. 7
15 GCS Not his best game, but did his bit after a quiet start. 6
16 Geel Cats were able to nullify his influence from defence. Only 10 effective disposals. 4
17 Coll Not as influential as he has been in defence. Pies bypassed him well. 5
18 Ess Took mark of day and provided a steady presence for the entire contest. 7
19 Port Not huge numbers, but provided run and cut off many forward entries. 7
20 Melb Helped out young key defenders in the air but was wayward at times with ball. 7
21 WCE Not given the space to intercept mark this week. 5
22 NM In first half dragged away from play so he could be limited. Better later. 5
23 Bris Among the Dogs’ better performers. 6
EF Adel Did a fair job down back to end an impressive season. 5

2014 Season

1 WCE Took Darling who was too big and too strong for him. 4
2 NM Put body on line at every opportunity. Worked well with likes of Morris. 6
3 Rich Had a variety of opponents and did a reasonable job. 5
4 GWS Tracked Tomlinson closely and found a bit of ball himself. Good. 7
5 Carl Low-key job in defensive role; used his pace to burst. 5
6 Adel Provided some run from defence and competed hard against a bigger body. 6
7 Ess Terrific overhead. Plucked some crucial marks. 6
8 Melb Handy enough without setting world alight from half back. 5
10 GCS Did some good things but Russell got two handy goals on him. 5
11 Frem Good job on Fyfe when he went forward. 6
12 Bris Had Paparone early and pushed forward for a goal. Quiet otherwise. 4
13 Coll Did some nice things when it mattered. 5
14 Port Produced some great spoils in the defensive 50. 5
15 Melb Ran hard from the back half and mopped up well with Murphy. 6
16 Geel Beaten a couple of times one-on-one and provided little run. 3
17 GCS Provided run and dash from half back and was influential late. 7
18 Ess Had Chapman and held him pretty well until the final term. 5
19 VFL Ran well off half back to give a springboard into attack. -
20 StK Desperate spoil at crucial stage when St Kilda was coming on. Solid. 5
21 Hand.
22 Hand.
23 Hand.

21 Adel Had Petrenko (when he wasn’t on Murphy) and defended well. 6
22 Bris Eight of his 11 touches came after half time but was rarely a factor. 3
23 Melb Solid across half-back line. Worked well with Murphy and Young. 5

2012 Season

1 WCE Defended OK but swamped in the end by a rampant Eagle forward line. 4
2 Adel Serviceable across half back with 14 possessions. 4
3 StK Quiet. 3
4 Melb On Bate at start. Not a big game. 4
5 GWS Didn’t really have an impact on the game. 3
6 Coll Was doing very well until hamstring injury forced him off in third term. 6
10 Syd Seemingly chased red and white guernseys all day in his first game after injury. 2
12 Port Attacked the footy well and backed up five rebound 50s with four inside 50s. 7
13 Bris Didn’t have the same dash as he’s produced at times this season. 5
14 Ess Steady but nothing out of the ordinary. 5
15 Frem Good defensive job. Didn’t let Ballantyne score. 6
20 VFL Provided great drive on return at half back. -
21 Syd Had task on Goodes and actually did pretty well given the scoreline. 6
22 Geel Never really a factor down back but certainly didn’t give up the chase. 5
23 Bris One of the better Dogs on a dirty twilight Brisbane night. 6
