2017 Season

1 -
2 Leg.
3 -
4 Thumb.
5 Thumb.
6 VFL Excellent effort across half back in Casey's loss to Geelong. 20 possessions and six tackles. -
7 Haw Tried hard but not enough pill to make Clarko squirm in his chair. Eight kicks, one inside-50. 3
8 Adel Provided great drive off half back particularly after Jayden Hunt left the ground injured. 6
9 NM Used in defence but was not a factor in any phase. Mustered three kicks for the day but did lay seven tackles. 3
10 GCS Did some nice things after main break, but wasn’t flash before the main break. 4
11 Bye.
12 VFL Good game at half back in response to being dropped. Had 27 touches and read the play well. -
13 VFL Did well again at half back and up into the middle. 28 touches and a couple of clearances. -
14 Senior emergency.
15 Syd Horrible at half back. Turned it over far too often for a ‘good’ kick. 2
16 Carl Hadn’t kicked a goal in 19 games coming in and had two by halftime. Did some handy things from 18 possessions. 6
17 Adel Minimal impact off half back despite handy enough numbers. 4
18 VFL Played a different role as an inside midfielder. Ability to win the contested ball really stood out. -
19 VFL Brings a lot of intensity no matter what role he plays. Good game with 23 disposals. -
20 Senior emergency.
21 StK Had a few iffy moments, but used his left foot well at stages. 4
22 Bris Lacked speed on the outside and a bit of quality when he got the footy. Hard to see him holding his place. 3
23 VFL Very good early on, but drifted out a touch. Ended with 26 possessions at half back. -

2016 Season

1 Played in Casey intra-club.
2 Played in VFL trial against Box Hill.
3 NM OK down back on debut. Didn’t make any glaring mistakes and defended fairly well. 5
4 Coll Great first half out of defence and theme continued in second. Looks a real player. 6
5 Rich Really steady game. Has a big engine and loves to use it. Bobbed up all over the field. 6
6 StK Solid game across half back. 5
7 GCS Daring and plenty of dash from defence. 7
8 WB Tried hard but never given space to break away and use ball to advantage from the back end. 4
9 Bris Pretty solid again in the back half and now looks like he feels he belongs at this level. 6
10 Port Got a bit of ball and provided some drive but not his most confident effort so far. 5
11 Haw Used left foot well and is a nice developing type at half back. Mixed and matched opponents. 6
12 Coll Quiet one from half back. Has to tidy up decision making with and without the ball. 4
13 Syd Followed Rose and led to the ball far too often. Not his best outing since debut. 4
15 Knee.
16 Knee.
17 StK Kicked it well enough in first term then copped head knock. Impact limited thereafter. 4
18 WCE Some good signs across half back. Showed intent. 5
19 GCS OK at times at half back but another who turned the ball over with poor execution. 5
20 Didn’t play for Casey.
21 VFL Drifted across half back without much fuss. OK. -
22 VFL Did some handy things but doesn’t appear likely to break back into senior team. -
23 VFL Mopped up well across half-back with plenty of uncontested possessions. -
