3 Bris In the thick of it when Richmond laid the foundations for victory. 6
4 Melb Battled hard and kicked a goal but part of a beaten midfield group. 5
5 Geel Former Cat lifted after half time but not a huge factor. 5

4 Syd Shadowed McGlynn and did it well after he got away in the first half. 5

8 Shoulder.
9 Shoulder.
10 Shoulder.

2012 Season

Played for : Geelong

1 Frem Ran with Hill in a great match up. Did well early but he got away late. 5
2 Haw Great job on Rioli in first half and pushed on to play a part in second. 6
3 NM Battled hard but decision making and skill execution still needs work. 5
4 Rich Tagged Cotchin for a fair portion of day and minimised his efficiency. 5
5 Bris Shadowed 300-gamer Black and kept him to season low 22 disposals. 7
7 Adel Tagged Dangerfield and did a reasonable job given flow of contest. 5
8 Coll When matched to Swan he did OK but for some reason tag wasn’t all match. 3
9 WB Tagged Griffen and limited his effectiveness. 16 disposals and a goal himself. 6
10 GWS Caught got with the ball a few times and only battled for most of the day. 5
11 Carl Ran with Simpson at times and tried to work off him. OK without starring. 5
13 Syd Disposal becoming an issue in his game – failed to hit gettable targets. 4
14 Port Lacked poise and polish with ball in hand and subbed off at last change. 3
15 GCS Shadowed Ablett and did Ok in that role. His long kicking is deplorable. 4
16 Coll Swan tag failed and again ball use/decision making hurt him. 3
17 Ess Ran with Stanton and kept him from being a factor. Worked hard other way. 6
18 Adel Played arguably best half of footy as a Cat in opening half then faded badly. 4
19 Haw Enjoyed a great start but faded badly – only one touch in second half. 3
20 WCE Did well although disposal let him down at times. One nice running goal. 6
21 StK Kicked two goals inside two minutes to start game. Copped knock then faded. 6
23 Syd Ran with a variety of players and OK defensively. Not huge offensively. 4
EF Frem Workrate good but poise and polish were not. Needs to work on kicking. 4
