2017 Season

1 GCS Worked hard to provide good rebound in defence and snuck forward to boot a goal also. 5
2 Ess Kept motoring in last term when game started to slip although he lost midfield tussle with Zaharakis. 5
3 StK Had some good moments and kicked a goal to put the Lions ahead, but needed to do more. 5
4 Rich Started on McIntosh and then exposed for pace when guarding Rioli in second half. 5
5 NEAFL Strong outing with 26 possessions and a goal. Did his chances of a senior recall no harm. -
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 NEAFL Worked overtime in the back half. Got plenty of the ball, but didn’t always hit the target. -
8 Haw Barely sighted early but did find some of it after half time. Only a 38 per cent efficiency from 13 disposals. 3
9 Senior emergency.
10 NEAFL A class above Aspley with 36 possessions, 13 inside 50s and a goal. -
11 Bye.
12 NEAFL Floated through the middle. Didn’t have a massive day, but did his bit. -
13 NEAFL Earned a recall to seniors with 31 touches, six inside 50s and three majors. -
14 GWS Showed he has a great leap but needs a set of hands to match and he’d be a potent forward weapon. Moved to defence late in game. 5
15 Ess Kicked three goals all from close range which was important in a low scoring game. 5
16 Geel Subdued by Bews in his 100th game. Missed a very gettable shot and completely punctured in last term. Fit??? 4
17 NEAFL Bye. -
18 NEAFL Just a solid performance from the seasoned AFL player. Kicking efficiency of just 22.2%. -
19 NEAFL Came off early in the third term and didn't return, but was still almost BOG. A level above on the wing as the link up man. -
20 NEAFL Didn’t kick the ball that well but won a truckload of the footy. -
21 NEAFL Handy contributor with 15 touches and five inside 50s. Drifted in and out. -
22 NEAFL Handy contributor with 22 possessions and four inside 50s. -
23 NEAFL Bye. -

2016 Season

1 WCE Needed to win more of the footy as a midfielder. 3
2 NM Linked up well through the midfield and ran hard throughout. 6
3 Geel Couldn’t get into the contest. With his experience has to find a way to have more than five kicks. 2
4 GCS Gathered possessions without really hurting opposition. 5
5 WB Got a goal and had a few touches but drifted in and out off a wing. 5
6 Syd Lost out to Lloyd. Another who needs to give more for longer. 5
7 Port Missed two gettable chances in the third quarter. 5
8 Coll Broke even early with Sidebottom on a wing. A goal to open third term the highlight. 5
9 Groin.
10 Groin.
11 Groin.
12 Frem Got plenty of the ball and looked to carry the footy. 6
13 WCE Lined-up on Jetta and had a respectable number of disposals. 6
14 Rich Started back but went forward late and looked much more comfortable. 4
16 GCS Booted a goal but disposals were often rushed kicks which were turnovers. 4
17 GWS Tried to stake a claim for mark of the year. Overall, one goal from seven touches didn’t cut it. 4
18 Ess Started on Goddard on wing and drifted in and out but long kicking handy at times. 5
19 Groin.
20 Groin.
21 Groin.
22 Groin.
23 Groin.

2015 Season

1 Coll Broke even with Crisp on a wing but still a lot of room for improvement. 6
2 NM Had no great input. 3
3 Rich Gathered a solid number of touches for reactive rather than proactive reasons. 5
4 WCE Had the job on Hill who had nine touches but he kicked three goals. 5
5 GCS Starting sub on early and quelled Bennell's influence in second half. 4
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 NEAFL Lions’ best in loss to GWS. 31 touches on a wing. -
8 Senior emergency.
9 StK Made several handling errors. Needs to think faster. 5
10 GWS Didn’t get a lot of ball but made touches count in front of goal with three majors. 6
12 WB Had his work cut out as negating forward on Murphy. Two goals but beaten. 3
13 Adel Aerial skills were on show but not much else. 4
14 Frem First Lions’ goal and eight tackles. Competitive. 6
15 Syd Sub. On in second term to replace Gardiner but only flitted in and out. 3
16 Senior emergency.
17 NM Two goals saved him from having an ordinary night. 5
18 Geel Kicked one long goal after a mark from a two-metre kick. That was a about it. 4
19 GCS Failed to kick a goal as the crumbing small forward despite 53 inside 50s. 4
20 NEAFL Lions’ best with 40 touches and two goals in loss. -
21 NEAFL Bye. -
22 NEAFL Willed Lions over the line with 31 touches, three goals. -
23 WB Got plenty of the ball but some costly errors too. 5

2 Geel Sub. Nearly took mark of the century. Kicked one goal from four disposals. 1
3 NEAFL Strong performance with three goals. -
4 Port Kicked two goals from limited opportunities. 5
5 Rich Spring made it awkward for Vlastuin at times. 5
6 NEAFL Quiet in the second quarter but was good after that. -
7 Syd Just four disposals when subbed out in third quarter. Enough said. 4
8 NEAFL Played through the middle and on a wing and gave good drive. -
9 NEAFL Worked hard all night playing on a wing to be the Lions best. -
10 NEAFL Bye. -
11 NEAFL Worked tirelessly with some hard running that was rewarded. -
12 WB His best game at AFL level in some time. Plenty of the ball, played with zip. 8
13 GWS Much quieter game than last week. 3
14 Frem On Mzungu and at least bobbed up a few times. 4
15 NM Useful effort on Harvey who did not have a major impact on game. 6
16 Rich Went to Ellis after quarter time but didn’t dampen his influence. 5
17 WCE Busy a small forward but no real influence. 5
18 GCS Kept to his task of curtailing Bennell and finished on top. 6
19 Melb Enjoying his new role and was afforded plenty of space to hit targets. 7
20 Adel Had only seven touches until half time. Found more of the ball in second half. 6
21 Coll Great running goal in third term a highlight of an even performance. 6
22 Frem Started on Mzungu on a wing and collected possessions easily enough. 6

8 Ess OK as a roaming half forward. Worked hard up the ground to get involved. 5
