14 SANFL Launched numerous forward forays for Adelaide with his dash and driving entries. Finished with 24 touches. -
15 SANFL Found space only spasmodically, finishing with a relatively quiet 13 possessions. -
16 SANFL Terrific line-breaking display in losing cause with 29 touches, six inside 50s and an early goal from long range. -
17 SANFL Solid territory-covering display on the wing but couldn’t quell west’s runners late in the game. -
18 SANFL Spritely performance on the wing with 22 disposals and plenty of metres gained. -
19 Coll Good first game back for over a year, will be better for the run. 5
20 SANFL Bye. -
21 SANFL Sensational. Had a game-high 29 touches and nailed three majors, including two final-term bombs. -
22 SANFL Banging down the door. Starred again on the wing with a goal and match-highs in possessions (33) and marks (12). -
23 WCE A big game with 25 possessions and 1.2. But it was his 603m gained that proved telling. 7
QF GWS Handy contributor forward of centre in early going. Not a big stat collector, but played role. 5
PF Geel Couldn’t get into the team for most of year but got in and played like a star; 19 disposals and two goals. 7
GF Rich Struggled big time to impact the game. Won 12 effective disposals but rarely broke the lines. 2

2016 Season

1 NM Former Pie nailed a nice long goal but that was about only highlight. 3
2 Port Had the run-with role on Boak and did a great job. 6
3 Rich Provided run and a long kick on the outside. Nice contribution all afternoon. 7
4 Syd Showed his strengths with two goals, a set shot outside 50, and a left foot snap. 5
5 Haw Long kicking a feature when he unleashed it but half disposals were handballs. 6
6 Frem Five rebound-50s and two clearances, run off half back is vital to team balance. 5
7 WB Two inside-50s and few moments in which he really hurt the Dogs. 4
8 Geel Had easy chance to put Crows ahead in last term and blew it – momentum killer. 3
9 GCS Found plenty of space and team mates looked to utilise him. 6
10 GWS His run and carry through the midfield was exceptional on occasions. 6
11 StK Seven inside-50s and three scoring assists from the wing and halfback. 7
12 WCE Provided good run and delivered the ball inside 50 seven times. 6
14 Hamstring.
15 Hamstring.
16 SANFL Productive and efficient wing display in his first SANFL game. -
17 Coll Looked a touch rusty, will be better for the run. 5
18 SANFL Ran hard and continually found space. Far from Adelaide's worst. -
19 Ess Two goals from long range shots after receiving cheeky handballs. 6
20 Bris Left the field with a corked buttock in the first term. 2
21 Buttock.
22 Buttock.
23 Buttock.
EF SANFL Had a nice run on the wing in his return from a corked buttock. -
SF Did not play for Adelaide reserves.

2015 Season

1 Hip.
2 Adel Subbed on early and still finding feet after a lengthy stint on the sidelines. 5
3 StK Strong all-round game from half back/wing. 6
4 Ess Claimed Anzac Medal with superb performance highlighted by 14 inside-50s. 9
5 Carl Showed great pace and penetrating kicking until he hurt hip and subbed off third. 6
6 Glute.
7 Rich Won a bit of ball but Tigers were able to nullify him. 6
8 GCS Gathered a bit of the footy but his dash was curtailed. 4
9 NM Provided run in spurts but wasn’t a big factor. 4
10 Melb Quiet first half and Bucks had seen enough midway through third term. Subbed. 3
11 GWS Broke the lines but scruffy with kicking – especially in first half. 4
13 Frem Sub. Thrown in for final term and contributed a goal. Made a couple of errors. 1
14 VFL Gave customary run and carry to play a handy role. -
15 VFL Good effort and broke lines with ball in hand. 19 possessions. -
16 WCE Kicking radar way off and seems to have lost early-season confidence. 4
17 VFL Late omission from seniors and provided drive from defence. -
18 Melb Looks down on confidence. No surprise to see him subbed out. 3
19 VFL Provided run and drive off a wing with penetrating kicking. -

7 VFL Continues to work back from hip injury. Fair. -
8 VFL Bye. -
9 VFL Working back to full fitness and form at half back. -
10 VFL Back to his line breaking, long kicking best in VFL win. -
11 StK Sub came on early and used pace to break the lines. 6
12 Melb First-half rebounding was a feature when the side was under the pump. Solid. 7
13 WB One of the key reasons the Pies were in the game in the final term. 7
14 Haw Did a couple of nice things but absent for periods. 4
15 Carl Three inside-50s and three rebound-50s kept him involved. Tired late. 6
16 GCS His run was important, but under-utilised. 5
17 Ess Hardly seen early. Couldn’t get a clear run. 4
18 Adel Not his night. Only two disposals in first half not enough for a rebounder. 3
19 Groin.
20 VFL Appeared rusty and wasn’t able to get near it. -
21 VFL In and out of the game but had some important touches. -
22 VFL Lifted the Pies in third term to end with 24 disposals, goal. -

8 Geel Did some nice things, kicked well and grabbed nine disposals in a tense final term. 6
9 Syd Plenty of touches in good start. Some mistakes but very good goal late. 5
10 Bris Provided great run and drive at half back. Looking a player. 7

12 WB Plenty of good work. 5
14 Port The Pies’ best with seven rebounds out of the defensive 50. 8
15 Carl Rebounded well all night and a threat with his run and carry. 6

3 VFL In and out of the game after a few weeks at AFL level. -
4 Port Came on late third term with instant impact. 12 disposals and a goal. 3
