4 VFL Toiled away through the middle but didn’t have a huge impact on the result. -
5 VFL Had 20 touches but was a turnover machine in midfield. Has to improve his ball use or it will see him chopped. -
6 VFL Provided a spark. Six inside 50s from 28 disposals and also hit the scoreboard with a goal. Positive day. -
7 Foot.
8 VFL Best game for the season in midfield with 30 possessions and eight clearances. -
9 VFL Good effort in midfield. 31 possessions to go with seven clearances. -
10 Bye.
11 VFL Had 15 touches and five clearances and was at his best late. Scratchy before that. -
12 Didn’t play for Collingwood VFL.
13 Bye.
14 VFL One of his better games so far this year. 25 touches and eight inside 50s. -
15 Haw First game since 2014. Kicked a goal (to delight of teammates). Faded as game dragged on but still had 21 touches. 5
16 Ess Worked hard but was always under pressure and fumbled at times when it was costly; 19 possessions. 5
17 GCS Had a hand in plenty of scores (three score assists), booted two goals and was handy across half forward. 5
18 WCE Started on fire as a link between the middle and goal. Finding his feet at senior level again. 4
19 Adel Pushed forward for a goal when the Pies had all the run of play. 4
20 NM Had a fair amount of midfield time and took advantage of it. Finding more confidence with every game. 4
21 Port Played his part in the midfield rotations with three clearances and three inside-50’s. 6
22 Geel Quiet first half (6 disposals) and 15 for the game. Not sure how he fits into the team longer-term. 3
23 Melb Hard worker who applied good pressure – six tackles, but didn’t get a whole lot of ball. 5
