3 Melb Won plenty of ball bit impact not reflective of numbers. Laid nine tackles and had four inside-50s. 4
4 Haw Won his share of ball and got better longer than game went. Might be in trouble for sling tackle on Hodge. 6
5 Suspended.
6 Coll First half horrible. If weight of possessions is your benchmark he was okay. On naked eye scale he offered little. 3
7 GCS Late inclusion starred with three goals (and two posters) while grabbing 22 disposals (13 effective). Solid effort. 7
8 Ess Tried hard. Lot of scrappy touches but workrate at least strong. Five tackles and four clearances to go with 25 disposals. 6
9 WB Provided support to stars with 21 disposals, seven tackles and 11 contested possessions. 6
10 Port Inaccurate in front of goal (1.3) but ran hard and got into some good spots. Needs to work on his finishing. 7
11 Adel Around the ball a lot but stats not huge. Highlight was six clearances and ability to cover the ground in transition. 6
12 Bye.
13 WCE Putrid first half and theme continued after half time. Five kicks for the night playing a lot across half forward. 2
14 Frem Did some good things playing half forward/wing. Five inside-50s and laid nine tackles. 7
15 GWS Monster effort with 33 disposals, a goal, five inside-50s and five tackles. Best game of the year? 8
16 Bris After an even first half, lifted considerably to make his presence felt in the latter stages. 6
17 Haw Won plenty of the ball (22 disposals), six inside-50s and four tackles. Handy when Dangerfield went down. 7
18 Adel Won some ball but very little impact on the flow of the contest. When not playing frontline midfield he struggles a tad. 4
19 Carl Great second term (8 disposals) set up his effort that ended with a team-high 30-disposals and 10 score involvements. 8
20 Syd Played midfield with the odd stint across half forward. Set shot goalkicking was diabolical. Missed three sitters. Kicked two though. 4
21 Rich Average ball use soured what would have been a great afternoon. Worked hard with 10 tackles. 6
22 Coll Quiet start but worked into the game to be a factor in the middle. Two goals, five inside-50s and 462 metres gained. 7
23 GWS Great effort highlighted by 34 disposals, seven inside-50s, four clearances and two very handy goals. 8
QF Rich Quiet first term and managed to keep that going all night. Seven effective possessions for the night. 2
SF Syd Got going after quarter time. Has to play midfield given how he can influence the game; 26 touches and two goals. 7
PF Adel Horrific. Most times he got it the ball went to the opposition and was a clanger king on the night. 2
