2016 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 Syd Tore in hard as usual and won some footy, but delivery is haphazard. 5

2013 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 NM Plenty of tackles early. Cramped up late. 4
2 Carl Lacked finishing quality at times in the front half but can’t fault his endeavour. 3
3 Haw Failed to fire a shot as a small forward. Might be due for a spell in the VFL. 2
4 Rich Hit target with all nine disposals, pressured well, but needs to find more of the footy. 4
5 Ess Didn’t get into game at all and subbed out in third term. 1
6 VFL Quiet for long periods with the odd burst. Not his best. -
7 VFL Bye. -
8 VFL OK at half back but had a few nervy moments. -
9 VFL Struggled down back in new role opposed to Dell’Olio. -
10 VFL Still learning his new role down back. Has had better days. -
11 Melb Used in defence to provide some run and rebound. Will he stay in defence? 4
12 WB Matched on Dahlhaus and mostly kept the Bulldog quiet. 5
14 Port Tried hard in the midfield winning two clearances and two inside 50s. 5
15 Carl Found his range in a back pocket and dashing at times from defence. 7
16 Adel Had his hands full with Porplyzia early. 4
17 GCS Quiet start but finished off well. Used mainly in the back half. 6
18 GWS Barely sighted early but had some OK patches in the second half. 4
19 Ess Beat Zaharakis and provided quality run and rebound through the middle. 7
20 Syd Provided plenty of run as the Pies proved too slick for the home side. 5
21 Haw Had Breust until a shoulder injury prematurely ended his night. 1

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 Haw Threw himself in and not disgraced. Had 11 disposals but no goals. 4
2 Rich Did a couple of things but not a big impact. 4
3 Carl On early, endeavour is great, but he’s no match for classy opponents. 1
4 Port Lively at times and found a little space forward of the press. 4
5 Ess Lively late when game went up a notch and had a hand in final goal. 4
6 WB His speed close to goal was a factor. Kicked two and set up another. 6
7 Bris Did his best work in the first half when appeared to be a high half forward. 5
8 Geel Bobbed up but looked a little out of his depth in this company. 3
9 Adel Lively on occasions just lacked some polish with his execution. 5
10 GCS Made most of opportunities for three goals – good return for small forward. 6
11 Melb Two goals from three kicks in first half and ended with three from six. 6
15 Carl Subbed on in third term. Looked out of his depth after two-game break. 2
16 Geel Didn’t hit scoreboard but provided an option at times – five inside-50s. 5
18 GWS Kicked one goal but didn’t contribute much else on the night. 3
19 StK Nipped in here and there but didn’t hit scoreboard. Did have six inside-50s. 5
20 Syd It was a very quiet display from Sinclair, who finished with just eight touches. 2
21 NM Finished with 1.3 instead of 3.1. Must start making the most of chances. 4
22 WCE The sub and got smashed as soon as he came on. 1
QF Haw Defensive forward tag on Birchall worked OK. 5
PF Syd Subbed off in third term. Made early errors and looked out of his depth. 2
