2017 Season

1 GWS Finally got his kicking boots on finishing with three majors. 7
2 Haw Injured in opening term and was taken to hospital with a kidney/spleen injury. 0
3 Ribs.
4 Ribs.
5 Ribs.
6 Rich Slow return back from injured ribs, will be better for the body on body contests moving forward. 4
7 NM Hobart police sent out a search party for him at half time. Better second half with two goals, but not one to remember. 4
8 Melb Has struggled ever since returning to the side, kicked two goals but was hardly sighted. 5
9 SANFL Demoted for a rare SANFL outing and didn’t disappoint. Nailed four goals including three from his first three kicks. -
10 Frem After his one game stint in the SANFL, rewarded the coaches’ faith with three goals and gave off two others. 6
11 Geel Provided a spark at times in second term then struggled. Does he attack the ball like you would expect? Two goals. 3
12 StK Return to form with three goals and some strong contested marking. 7
13 Bye.
14 Haw Three goals including two in two minutes in the second term, but like most of his teammates had poor hands on the night. 5
15 Carl Leading goal kicker in the game and sealed the Crows win with a magnificent long bomb from outside 50 late in the game. 7
16 WB Crows best player with a game high four goals, set up two others and took some strong marks inside-50 in the wet. 8
17 Melb Given too much room by Frost and made him pay in attack by setting up teammates for scores. 6
18 Geel Had to work up the field to get a kick at times. Ended with one goal and gave something without starring. 5
19 Coll Poor first half, got his hands on the footy three times for marking contests and spilt them all. 6
20 Port Made up for his sitter of a miss after the siren at half time with two goals in the last minute of the third term, and four for the game. 8
21 Ess Good start and an even better finish when his height was too much for Essendon. Three goals. 7
22 Syd Wanted to keep breaking tackles when a quick handball to a teammate would have been a better option. 6
23 WCE Didn’t do enough inside 50 in Walker’s absence. Kicked one goal. 4
QF GWS Didn’t have a big night ending with just one goal – a gift from Betts. Easily shut out when not allowed out the back. 3
PF Geel Chimed in to kick four goals and was always dangerous inside forward 50. 7
GF Rich One kick in the first half. When not getting cheapies over the top in free-flowing games he’s nowhere. Horrible. 1

2016 Season

1 NM Three first-half goals and five for the match from eight kicks. Did his bit. 7
2 Port Four goals to go with five against the Kangaroos in the previous game. 7
3 Rich Spent a bit of time in the ruck as well as attack. Just the one goal but created a few. 5
4 Syd Second quiet game in a row, still contributing but not hitting the scoreboard enough. 5
5 Haw Pace off the mark troubled Frawley at times. Couple of goals but not big input. 5
6 Frem Finished the game with two goals and a gash to the head. 4
7 WB Eight goals kept side in the hunt all night in what was a brilliant performance. Couldn’t have done much more. 9
8 Geel Two goals but little else from the soon-to-be out-of-contract big man. 4
9 GCS Second fiddle to Walker, booting just one goal. 4
10 GWS One goal, six-inside-50s and five scoring assists for the key forward. 5
11 StK Big day with seven goals from 11 shots. 8
12 WCE Actually kicked the ball out of the stadium with one of his three goals. 5
14 NM Well held by Firritto but managed the first goal of the last term to stretch the lead. 4
15 Melb Kicked two goals but wasn’t a huge factor up forward. Seven kicks. 4
16 Carl Kicked three goals – all from about five metres out. Modern day Warren Ralph. 6
17 Coll One goal and no tackles. Did receive a heavy knock though. 4
18 Geel Three first-half goals handy then only two kicks after half time. 5
19 Ess Two goals from limited chances, after playing the majority of the game in the ruck. 5
20 Bris Great duel with Andrews, still managed three goals and five inside-50s. 7
21 Frem Booted five goals. Freo couldn’t stop him. 8
22 Port Two goals and three inside-50s, well held by Trengove. 5
23 WCE Didn’t get his hands on the footy in the first term. 4
EF NM Two goals and threatened often but not a huge factor with Firrito on his hammer. 4
SF Syd Horrid. One mark, two kicks. No goals. 1

2015 Season

1 NM Three goals from CHF is always a good return. 6
2 Coll Relatively well held by Brown. Only four marks and one goal. 4
3 Melb Like Cameron needs to produce more in the forward 50. 3
4 WB No opportunities in attack and did a bit on the ball. 4
5 Port Needs to present more as a forward, and impose himself more at ruck contests. 4
6 Hip.
7 Hip.
8 GWS Kicked two goals and was OK in front half. 5
9 Frem Needs to do more, not producing enough up forward or as the back-up ruckman. 4
10 Carl Proved the match-winner with five goals from eight marks. 8
12 Haw Beaten comprehensively by Lake. 4
13 Bris Kept Adelaide in touch early with his work in attack. 6
15 WCE Kicked two goals and provided lively target. Gave the team some energy. 7
16 Port Three goals was just what the coach would have wanted. 6
17 GCS Three goals from seven attempts, handy foil to Walker. 6
18 Syd Kicked a couple of goals on Grundy and wasn’t the worst. 5
19 Rich Broke the game apart with two clutch goals late in the third term. 5
20 Ess Kicked three goals but could easily have kicked five. Six marks. 7
21 Bris Worked hard running his opponent up and down. 5
22 WCE Career-best six-goal haul. 8
23 Geel One goal from nine marks. Tried hard but Lonergan had him well covered. 5
EF WB Hamling on him briefly at start. Didn’t make use of size to advantage. 3
SF Haw At least showed something in second half even though game over. Four goals. 5
