3 Minimal impact on the contest overall. Has too many outings like this.
4 PM Played mostly in defence and was able to shut down his opponents and provide some drive. -
5 VFL Forced to ruck against Meese and had a dip, but outsized. Had 25 hitouts and five inside-50s. -
6 VFL Kicked two goals, while also pinched hit in the ruck with eight hit outs. Was also used a key defensive post at times. -
7 VFL Seemed to be everywhere at times. 15 possessions, but did some fine work at both ends. -
8 VFL Stout in defence against an undermanned Casey. In superb form at VFL level. -
9 VFL Outstanding in defence and putting together a great patch of form. Took 15 marks. -
10 Bye.
11 Ankle.
12 GWS Did a fine job on Patton who kicked two goals but for the most part he had him covered. Welcome back to footy. 7
13 GCS Continued his renaissance by holding Tom Lynch goalless. Remarkable transformation. 8
14 Rich Tiger movement caught him out at times, but continued to back himself to read the play. Fair without starring. 6
15 Adel Comeback of the year, took Taylor Walker to the cleaners and provided plenty of rebound from the last line of defence. 8
16 Melb Had Hogan covered in another notch on the belt. Going other way only had six effective touches but played his role. 6
17 WB Beat Redpath hands down and crashed packs whenever he could in another solid defensive display. 7
18 Bris Never got settled. Four disposals until half time. Seven for the game. Needed to do more. 4
19 Geel Hawkins caused him some issues when on him but not helped by fact the ball was coming in sideways. Battled away. 4
20 Ess Daniher got away early but he rebounded well to be a really good player. Great battle against Bomber star. 7
21 WCE Started well on Kennedy but lost his way and the Eagle kicked six goals. 4
22 Haw Defensively superb. Spoiled everything and was aggressive at the contest. Kept Roughead quiet. 7
23 Syd Had a night to forget on Buddy. To his credit, never dropped his head but it will be one to forget in a hurry. 2

2016 Season

1 Played in VFL trial against Richmond.
2 Played in VFL trial against Port Melbourne.
3 VFL Three goals from centre half forward and will at least enter selection discussion. -
4 VFL Three second-term goals and five for the match proved match-winning. -
5 Frem Two goals when the game was on the line lifted the Blues to victory. 5
6 Ess One great snap goal early but for most part not influential. Two marks for the day. 3
7 Coll Two early contested marks and flung himself at the ball all day. Not big stats but played role. 5
8 Port Kicked two goals – including an important one in final term. Not a big day but gave a target. 6
9 NM Had Tarrant for company and tried hard for his two goals, but delivery wasn’t the best. 5
10 VFL Bye. -
11 VFL Four inside-50s, one goal, five tackles but didn’t take a mark. -
12 VFL Kicked 2.2 from five contested marks in a reasonable effort inside forward 50. -

15 VFL Took four contested marks but totalled six kicks. Two goals. -
16 VFL Gardner had his measure for most of the day. Four marks, one goal. -
17 VFL Five marks, no goals and very little influence. Not likely to get back in. -
18 VFL Nine marks including a staggering six contested. Three goals. -
19 VFL One contested mark, no goals and seven kicks. Struggled. -
20 VFL Nine marks (five contested) but just one goal from 10 kicks. -

23 Ess Hit some contests but couldn’t find the pill. A poor performance. 2

2015 Season

1 Rich Started well with strong marking but then chances limited. 4
2 WCE Missed chance early then kicked goal in third term but was pretty putrid. 2
3 Ess Will be lucky to stay in team after another disappointing display. One goal. 4
4 StK Working hard to have an impact, and kicking for goal wayward with just one. 3
5 Coll On Brown. Couldn’t get into it, although got hands to a lot of balls. 3
6 Bris Horrid first half. Came to life with two marks inside 50 when game all but over. 3
7 VFL One goal from four marks on return to VFL. -
8 Geel Don’t be fooled by a few late touches. One tackle. 2

10 VFL Goalless in loss to Coburg but took some good marks. -
11 VFL Bye. -
12 VFL Marked well at times but just nine touches and a goal. -

15 VFL Scoreless in attack and spent time running through ruck. -
16 VFL Chipped in with two goals but made some bad errors. -
