3 Geel Did well on Hawkins until final term when the big Cat cut loose. 4

10 WCE Had Kennedy’s measure until concussion ended his night early in third term. 5

15 Carl Fine job on Casboult and showed courage to leave his man and be third-in. 6
16 GCS Could not keep the Suns tall forwards under wraps. 3
17 Ess Lined up on Daniher. Had some trouble with some of his leads. 4
18 Adel Battled Walker and will be frustrated that he kicked three goals. Solid. 6

20 WCE Hard task on Kennedy given tide was against. Did a good job given score. 6
21 Bris Defensively OK but some of his decision-making and skill was horrid. 3

23 Haw Battled Roughead who got hold of him in the second term. Will learn from year. 3
