2017 Season

1 Frem Quiet game but got through and will get better with each minute he plays. Late inclusion for Smith. 3
2 NM Still finding his feet in defence. Defended okay but didn’t offer much by way of offensive rebound. 2
3 Melb Still struggling to find his feet and failed to get involved to any degree either defensively or offensively. 2
4 Haw Quiet game in terms of touches but found some confidence with a few touches and a goal in final term. 4
5 StK Probably best game of the year although did fade as game dragged on. Just needs more game time. 4
6 Senior emergency.
7 GCS Still struggling. Spoiled well when needed to but in terms of offence he was very quiet with 11 disposals. 3
8 VFL One of the few winners on the day for a Cats team that were badly beaten. -
9 VFL One of the Cats best down back. 27 possessions and five rebounds. Had a hand in a few scores. -
10 Bye.
11 VFL In and out, but a long way from his best. Just the 11 possessions. -
12 Bye.
13 VFL Starting to find some footy; 28 disposals, four rebound 50s and three tackles. Back to senior footy? -
14 VFL Won six clearances to go with 23 disposals and a few assists. Steady. -
15 Didn’t play for Geelong VFL.
16 VFL Quieter game and made some mistakes with both kicks and handballs. -
17 VFL Played well with 27 disposals and managed to kick a goal. -
18 VFL Found plenty of it but was underwhelming in his impact. Needs to find his awareness -
19 Carl First game since Round 7. Quiet early but worked into the game. Second half good foundation for next week. 5
20 Syd Couple of good patches and he finds his feet. Third quarter was his best with eight of his 23 disposals. 6
21 Rich Best game since returning from a serious knee injury. Started slowly but gained confidence as the game progressed. 7
22 Coll Played on a wing but never a huge factor with 16 possessions. At least gave some support to others. 4
23 VFL One of Geelong's best in upset win. 25 possessions and 10 tackles. -
QF Senior emergency.
SF Senior emergency.

3 GCS Showed some real poise from the back half. Great return after serious injury. 6
4 NM Battled away in defence (on the taller Brown at times). Did what he could. 3
5 Rich Great first half (14 disposals) and continued that on. Played with poise. 8
6 Coll Huge again. Hit targets, read ball well and appears to have arrived. 7
7 Syd Great again. Plays with a poise and read the play brilliantly. 7
8 Carl Poise and balance at half back again a feature. Breakout year. 7
9 WCE Not his night. Under pressure at times and looked out of sorts. 4
10 Ess Did what was required at half back. Rising Star nom surely comes his way. 7
11 Port Hit targets and worked hard to be a factor up the ground. 6
12 Melb Very quiet down back. Caught out of position at times and couldn’t rebound. 3
15 NM Not huge stats but did a few good things with ball delivery to teammates. 5
16 WB Quiet on stats sheet but did some tough things and didn’t make mistakes. 5
17 GWS Modest stats but did his bit across half back. Read the play well. 5
18 Bris Subbed out after a steady but quiet performance across half-back. 4
19 Syd Great first term a highlight of a steady performance. Took some nice marks. 6
20 Haw One of his quieter games but not disgraced. Might be getting tired. 4
21 StK Youngster was a steady presence without hurting Saints to any large degree. 5
22 Coll Three kicks first half. Tried to lift rating after main break but tough to do so. 4
23 Adel Not his best game but year has been a huge positive on the season. 4
