2017 Season

3 Senior emergency.
4 Frem Did a good job early on Neale to restrict his impact but the little Docker then got motoring to be a big presence with four goals. 5
5 VFL Bobbed up everywhere in the front half to end with a career-best five goals. Had 32 touches too. -
6 Ess Returned to the team and had a few good touches, but wasn’t really a factor overall. 3
7 Haw Never able to impact flow of game or tempo of play. When he gets it not a lot happens despite 20 touches. 4
8 Adel Pushed forward for two goals late in the second term to get the Demons rolling. 6
9 NM Got caught in the grill a few times and missed four chances for goal. Could have been a good day but wasn’t. 4
10 GCS Can’t afford to continually miss shots for goal as a forward. Now has 0.7 in past fortnight. Pressure good though. 5
11 Bye.
12 Coll Poor first half, but some of his competing in the air and tackling after main break in attack were important. 5
13 WB A pre-game Instagram photo ignited tensions, but he backed up the lip with his actions. Good outing. 7
14 WCE No Instagramming but not a big impact either. 4
15 Syd Crude hit on Mills in first term will earn a long suspension. Then hardly saw the Sherrin. See you in late August. 2
16 Suspended.
17 Suspended.
18 Suspended.
19 Suspended.
20 Suspended.
21 Suspended.
22 VFL Worked into the game after a long layoff and was handy. 24 possessions. -
23 VFL Werribee didn’t allow him much space and kept him well in check. -

2016 Season

1 GWS Limited impact against his former club playing on a wing with 13 touches. 4
2 Ess Kicked to 50/50s far too often when better options were available. 3
3 NM Not his best day in midfield or across half forward. Made a few errors by foot but tackled hard. 5
4 Coll Racked up possessions at half back and laid team-high nine tackles. Efficiency down a tad. 8
5 Rich Got in the face of the Tigers all night and backed up with steady play. Handy. 5
6 StK Ran hard and was one of the better performed Demons. 6
7 GCS Led the way at the stoppages with eight clearances, and also seven tackles. 8
8 WB Works hard but at times plays like a headless chook at others. Nine tackles. 3
9 Bris Good ball winner from start to finish in midfield. Made a few odd decisions, but strong outing. 7
10 Port Worked through midfield and won a bit of ball but not his most effective performance. 5
11 Haw Played off half back and through middle. OK without setting the world on fire. 5
12 Coll Tagged Sidebottom and kept him to 10 disposals after quarter time. 8
13 Syd Played in midfield and half back. Won a bit of ball but too many small handballs. 5
15 Adel Came off bench to run with Sloane but dropped on and off from run-with role. OK. 5
16 VFL Bye. -
17 VFL Not overly influential with just 15 touches in midfield battle. -
18 VFL Worked hard in midfield rotation to get ball going Casey’s way. -
19 Senior emergency.
20 Haw Two second-half goals proved crucial and went to Rioli to try to quell him. 6
21 Port Two goals from the midfield while running with Boak and R. Gray for long periods. 7
22 Carl Poor early turnover cost a goal and set the tone. Tried hard but not his best day. 4
23 Geel Horrible performance. Get rid of the ridiculous mo and try to get a kick. 1

1 StK Drew ire of Saints’ fans after crude bump on Riewoldt late. Handy effort. 6
2 Melb Tracked Garlett and shut him out after half time. 6
3 Syd Not much went right for the defender who will need to bounce back. 3
4 GCS Battled hard and did all the gritty things a good team needs. 6
5 WCE Laid five tackles but little influence as the backline was under pressure. 5
6 Haw Found it difficult containing the hard-running Smith. 3
7 Carl Tagged Judd then released when GWS had game well in hand. 6
8 Adel Strong in contested situations and pressed forward for handy goal. 6
9 WB In faces as usual but limited effect. 3
10 Bris Followed Zorko and had hands full at times. 4
11 Coll Had Crisp at times and had a dip but not his best day. 4

2 StK Busy little player and was good at times. 5
3 Melb Always busy and hungry for the ball. 7

14 Carl Struggled to find the ball and didn't use it overly well. 4
15 Syd Again tried to aggravate the Swans while kicking two goals. 6
16 Adel Had tagging role on half back Smith and subdued him. 6
17 Frem Had job on Ballantyne who kicked five goals but weight of footy against hurt. 3
18 Geel Plugged away across half back and was serviceable all night. 6
19 Rich Took Martin when forward and did well enough but the Tiger kicked two. 5
20 NM Clamped onto Harvey and did a great job until half time. The old fella got away then. 6
21 Melb Defensive work superb and took one towering contested mark. 8
22 Coll Shadowed Sidebottom but couldn’t curtail his impact in important moments. 5
23 WB Did a good job on Macrae and got under Bulldogs’ skin to cause melee. 6

3 StK Good contest with Milne and had his share of it. 6
4 Melb Byrnes proved a handful, but battled hard. Came off with a limp late. 5
5 GCS Sub came on at three-quarter time. Crunched late but then kicked good goal. 3
6 Ess A late inclusion. Had his hands full with Davey who was far too nimble. 3

4 Adel Wet and slippery conditions didn’t suit his game; was OK. 5
5 WB Ball magnet who keeps finding the footy. 7
6 Carl Struggled a little on previous week’s effort but kept battling all day. 5
7 GCS One of his quieter games for the year, looks a player and will bounce back. 3
