2016 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 Played in VFL trial against Footscray.

3 VFL Quiet one playing half forward/wing role and not likely to get senior call-up. -
4 VFL Did some good things floating forward of centre but quiet in patches. -
5 VFL Didn’t feature on stats or scoresheet in another slightly disappointing effort. -
6 VFL Won a bit of ball playing half forward-wing but can be more damaging. -
7 VFL Best game of the year. Stepped up late to break the lines for his team. -
8 VFL Five inside-50s but kicking efficiency well down so that hurt his output. -
9 VFL Huge game. Six inside-50s, five clearances and 30 disposals. Senior call-up maybe? -
10 Rich First game for the year but struggled to get the ball in any space. Just the two inside-50s. 3

12 Haw Has speed and other attributes, but not taking advantage of his chance. 3
13 Senior emergency.
14 VFL Bye. -

18 VFL Showed a little bit, including six tackles and 14 kicks. Not the worst. -
19 VFL Bye. -
20 VFL Floated around. Career has to be in danger given inability to consistently impact VFL. -
21 VFL Seventeen on his 18 touches were kicks. One goal, four inside-50s. Even effort. -
22 VFL Found form. Work-rate good up and down the ground and used the ball pretty well. -
