2016 Digest:   Virtually the forgotten man at Essendon, he returned midway through 2015 after a season and a half on the sidelines with a knee injury but after four games in the VFL side he injured a thigh and was forced out for the rest of the season.

2016 NAB Cup:   Three NAB Challenge games which is good news story after such a long lay-off. Adds bite.

2013 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 Adel First gamer provided genuine spark in forward line and made major contribution. 7
2 Melb Started as the sub and came on to have a big final term. 3
3 Frem Good attack on the ball but clash with Bradley could cost. 5
4 Suspended.
5 Suspended.
6 GWS Not big numbers but provided a presence at ground level. Three score assists. 5
7 Geel Copped some knocks and quite good in bursts. 5
8 Bris Might be due a spell in the VFL after struggling to get into the game. 2
9 Rich A livewire across half forward with his defensive pressure and speed. 5
10 Syd Given stopping role on Malceski and couldn’t tie him down. 3
11 Carl Only minimal involvement early. Worked hard enough but minimal impact. 3
12 GCS Linked well in the second half and kicked a goal but not a huge night. 5
14 WCE Made some telling efforts in the final term. 5
15 Port Minimal impact with just the 10 possessions. 3
16 WB Is long year starting to wear him down? Didn’t get into game to any degree. 3
17 GWS Battled hard, laying seven tackles, but down on his usual production. 4
18 Haw Couldn’t get his hands on the ball – one eff disp first half. One nice goal late. 3
19 Coll Finding the going tough late in the season. Mustered just five kicks, one goal. 3
20 WCE Can’t knock his effort, but struggles to bring much more to the party. 3
21 NM Lifted late in second term. Lively type who tried to energise those around him 4
22 Carl Not big numbers but his defensive pressure in the front half was important. 6
23 Hand.
