2017 Season

1 Bris Fought an even battle with Martin in the ruck, and follow up work defensively was sound. 5
2 GWS Struggled to combat Mumford’s bulk at the stoppages but wasn’t the worst around the ground. Fair. 5
3 Haw Dominated the hitouts against Hawks and gave midfield a massive advantage at the stoppages. 6
4 Carl Got the better of his duel with Kreuzer in the ruck to give Suns’ the advantage in the middle. Good night. 7
5 Adel Fought out a great duel with Jacobs and gave his mids plenty of chances at stoppages. 6
6 NM Won plenty of hits to advantage in the early stages, but Goldstein gradually wore him down and did more around the field. 5
7 Geel Former Magpie was a clear winner in the ruck. Gave teammates first use and was able to link okay around the ground. 6
8 Port Held his own in hitout duel with Ryder, but the Port man was much more influential. Got a bit of the ball though. 6
9 Bye.
10 Melb Controlled the ruck contests against Pedersen and McDonald, but needed to make more of his hitouts. 5
11 WCE Another wholehearted effort rucking for the most part. Followed up his tap work with well also. 7
12 Haw Got on top of McEvoy early and then effort petered out a little as big Hawk got on top. Moved well and kept working. 7
13 Carl Broke even in the hitouts but unsighted around the ground; just the three disposals. 3
14 StK Only shaded Longer in total hit-outs but seemed to do much more overall. 5
15 NM Took the honours against Goldstein, both in the ruck and around the ground. 7
16 Syd One of the few who can hold their head up high, 44 hit outs as he won the battle against Naismith 6
17 Coll Got the better of Grundy in their ruck duel. Around the ground good also. 7
18 WB Got the better of Roughead in the ruck and gave his midfielders a chance to supply forwards. 7
