2017 Season

1 -
2 Coll Came off the bench to get involved with a dozen disposals forward of centre. Will it be enough to hold his place? 3
3 WCE Decent performance rotating as a mid-forward. Nothing spectacular, but played his role well. 6
4 Bris Only the nine touches and didn't appear to work hard enough to work the other wat against his opponent, Rich, 4
5 Melb Had 20 touches – but wasn’t noticeable for long periods. Did some handy inside work. 5
6 Adel Kicked Richmond’s only goal in the third term. 4
7 WB Had 23 touches and was busy at the fall of the ball in the forward half. 5
8 Frem Got hands to ball enough (20 touches) but often scrappy with disposal. Just has to work on poise with ball in hand. 5
9 GWS Tackled hard and won a good percentage of his possessions in tight. 6
10 Ess Ran with Merrett for periods and sound in that role. Tackled hard and won some hard ball in a solid display. 6
11 NM Getting better every time he steps out. Two goals, 25 disposals, five marks and 400 metres gained. Strong performance. 8
12 Bye.
13 Syd Started on Hannebery on the wing. Went at 33 % and didn’t have a big say in the outcome of the game. 4
14 Carl Very good early on with 15 disposals in opening half. Slowed a touch, but one of the Tigers best. 7
15 Port Big midfield performance with nine tackles, six clearances, six inside-50’s and two goal assists. 8
16 StK Honest trier was one of the better performed Tigers in a gloomy match. 6
17 Bris Numbers will look okay, but didn’t have a massive influence on the contest as part of the Tiger midfield. 5
18 GWS Jagged a nice snap goal late in second quarter and provided some run because he was able to find some space. 6
19 GCS Just OK. Did not make a great impact on proceedings though was OK at the stoppages. 5
20 Haw Provided more pressure than Jake the Snake Roberts DDT. 30 disposals and eight inside-50s. 6
21 Geel The big improver at Tigerland. Found the ball 28 times and had team high 6 clearances. 7
22 Frem Booted three goals in the second term and was extremely damaging. 7
23 StK Nippy performance from the playmaker. Really starting to find his feet in the middle; 21 touches. 7
QF Geel Underrated busy bee around the ball and was nippy throughout; 24 disposals, four clearances and 1.3 7
PF GWS Hampered early on by an ankle, but got the Tigers’ first and ended with seven inside 50s. Big effort. 7
GF Adel Busier than a one-armed paperboy. Ended day with 22 possessions, seven inside-50s and 3 tackles. One goal. 7

2016 Season

1 Carl First goal of season and was industrious until huge final term helped swing game Tigers’ way. 7
2 Coll Started well again. Defensive pressure in front half was good and ended with two goals. 6
3 Adel 18 touches and a goal and was handy at times. 4
4 WCE Booted the opening goal. The forwards didn’t get enough supply. 4
5 Melb Quiet one. Came in averaging 20 disposals but couldn’t get near that. Four inside-50s and one point. 3
6 Port Early knock in ribs, which ended his night and he was sent to hospital. 1
7 Ribs.
8 Ribs.
9 Frem Not the game you wanted to return from a serious injury but had a crack. 4
10 Ess Made costly errors and fumbled a lot when ball came into his area. Not a key factor. 3
11 NM Rarely sighted. 2
12 GCS Got on the end of a few but missed badly in final term. Handy without starring. 5
14 Bris Some fine pick-ups off the ground were a feature but generally subdued afternoon. 3
15 Port Despite laying five tackles was largely unsighted. 3
16 VFL Responded well to AFL axing, winning 14 contested possessions and eight clearances. -
17 Bye.
18 VFL Not as prolific as one would expect but played his role. -
19 GWS Quiet afternoon. Amassed a meagre three touches after half time. 3
20 VFL Torched his former team with 37 touches at 89% effectiveness in midfield. -
21 VFL Continued hot run with 35 possessions and a goal. Deserves a recall. -
22 StK Won some ball but fumbled and didn’t always get great value for disposals. 5
23 Syd Hardly a factor in midfield/forward rotation. 4

13 Syd Struggled with pace of game again and was subbed out. 3
14 GWS Youngster failed to impact on the game. 3
15 Carl Sub. Dashed around for 11 final-term touches in a solid display. 2
16 StK Good worker who picked up a fair share of the ball. 5
17 Frem Possibly his best game at senior level. Ran with Neale at stages. 7
18 Haw Kicking not great early but nipped in for crucial goal. 5
19 Adel Played his part in the midfield rotations with four inside-50s. 6
20 GCS Great first term got side going and ended as one of the key ball winners. 7
21 Coll Great early then faded out of the game to a degree. One goal, three clearances. 4
22 Ess Work-rate first class as he buzzed from one end to the other. 6
23 NM Busy worker and deserves his place. 6
EF NM Industrious around the footy and kicked a good long goal. Handy. 6
