2017 Season

1 -
2 NEAFL Good ball winner in the midfield mix and ran the game out fairly well. -

4 NEAFL Battled hard in midfield to end with 25 possessions, but didn’t always use the ball as well as he'd like. -
5 Good ball winner in first half then rested as a senior emergency.
6 NM Strong at the contest and no shortage of courage, but decision making needs to improve to hold down a regular spot. 4
7 Shoulder.
8 Shoulder.
9 Shoulder.
10 Shoulder.
11 NEAFL Everything he touched seemed to end up in a score for the Suns. 31 possessions, six assists. -
12 Haw Bulldozed way through the engine room for six tackles and 22 possessions. Getting better by the week as inside-mid. 6
13 Carl Handy over four quarters. Rotated through midfield and was hard at the footy. 5
14 StK Consistent toiler across four quarters who won clearances. 6
15 NM Pivotal role on limiting Higgins output, who he kept to just five kicks. 6
16 Syd Just fair in midfield. Needs to get hands on the ball more often. 5
17 NEAFL Would sneak into the best players. 29 touches were impactful. -
18 WB 14 possessions in midfield and wasn’t able to impact the contest enough. 4
19 Rich Earned a late reprieve with Ablett's withdrawal and failed to make the most of it. Career at crossroads. 3
20 NEAFL Bye. -
21 NEAFL Hard worker around the ball with 28 touches and had four score assists. -

2016 Season

1 Ess Rotated through the midfield and used the footy well. 6
2 Frem Tough. His contested ball winning and tackling were features. 6
3 Carl Shadowed Cripps for most of the evening and stuck to the task. 7
4 Bris Picked up a third of his touches in last term. Too little too late. 4
5 NM Just OK without standing out. 5
6 Geel Midfielder had only four effective disposals forward of centre. Without support he struggled. 3
7 Melb Prepared to get in and under and was far from the worst. 5
8 GWS Hard worker in close and laid an impressive 11 tackles. 6
9 Adel Led the way in clearances and contested possessions. Having a good season. 8
10 WCE Didn’t get into the game until after half time. It was over by then. 4
11 Syd Relished the conditions but did not finish match due to knee injury. 6
12 Rich Former first-round draft pick never a factor. Two kicks, two clearances and two inside-50s. 2
14 Ill.
15 Ill.
16 NEAFL Dominant in midfield. 35 touches, eight clearances and six inside-50s. -
17 WB Struggled to contribute in the midfield – needed to do more. 3
18 Frem OK in the midfield but failed to make the most of his disposals. 5
19 Melb Couldn’t get into the game at all. One clearance and two inside-50s. 2
20 Shoulder.
21 Shoulder.
22 Shoulder.
23 Shoulder.

5 Bris Copped a hit on the shoulder and soldiered on. 3
6 Adel Given a football lesson in defence by Betts. 1
7 WCE Played deep on LeCras at times. A tough night. 3
8 Coll Looks far more comfortable when not in defence. 4
9 Haw Tackled hard but not a major input. 3
10 Syd Continued his development in defence and OK when in the midfield. 7
11 Frem Not as prolific as previous weeks, but developing well. 4
13 Carl Looked all at sea for the most part. Laid seven tackles but struggled. 3
14 NM Starting sub and didn't trouble the statisticians. 0
15 WB Used in defence and was OK in contests but needs to elevate game. 5
16 GWS Fairly impressive, did some good things. 5
17 Adel Pushed forward for a great goal in the third term brushing off Dangerfield. 7
18 WCE Spent some time on Priddis, and found the going tough. 4
19 Bris Even four-quarter effort. 7
20 Rich Tagged Cotchin and the way game went that was a futile task. 4
21 Ess Had a run-with role on Heppell, but still chased his own footy. 5
22 Port Applied himself to the tagging role on Boak and was great. 7
23 Syd Battled hard but knee injury hampered his efforts. Few possessions were telling. 4
