2017 Season

3 Geel Great inclusion. Looked dangerous and workrate superb. Only downside was the fact he missed goals he should have kicked. 7
4 Frem Only kicked the one goal but was the main outlet in attack for long periods. Attacked the ball strongly as always. 7
5 VFL Didn’t dominate like one would expect. 14 possessions and a goal. Tackling pressure still needs to lift. -
6 VFL Better than recent weeks with his intensity and defensive work. Had 23 possessions and four inside-50s. -
7 VFL Worked hard in attack to keep the ball in and added a goal. Must come back into senior mix soon. -
8 Adel Got under the guard of the Adelaide defence with two goals, and wasn’t afraid to throw his weight around. 6
9 NM Failed to grab the opportunity presented. One goal in final term but only 13 possessions. Two tackles. 4
10 Senior emergency.
11 VFL Impressed with 25 touches, seven clearances and three assists. Pressure was good too. Great early. -
12 VFL Kicked two goals and won the ball well at half forward and through midfield. -
13 VFL Sprayed the ball at times, but won it well. 27 possessions, six inside 50s and a few assists. -
14 VFL Got a stack of the footy against Box Hill in midfield/half forward role. -
15 VFL Put his hand up for a senior recall playing through midfield. 27 possessions, seven clearances. -
16 Carl Might need to get on the gas again. Nine effective disposals and missed only shot at goal. 3
17 Adel Had Lever for company at stages and tried hard, then hurt a shoulder in third term. 3
18 Shoulder.
19 Shoulder.
20 Shoulder.
21 Shoulder.
22 Shoulder.
23 Shoulder.

2016 Season

1 GWS Run and keenness to take the game on were important across half forward. Cramped late. 5
2 Ess Couldn’t get into the game across half forward and let opponent off the chain in transition. 2
3 NM Poor start by foot with rushed decisions but kicked three big final-term goals to nearly win it. 6
4 Coll Grabbed 17 of his total disposals in first and fourth quarters. Quiet in between. 5
5 Rich Ended with a last-quarter goal as great reward for his hard work throughout. 6
6 StK Fairly quiet day in front half. 3
7 GCS A bit wasteful with the footy but kicked a good goal. 4
8 Back.
9 Bris OK without starring but got a few rank bounces when clear. One goal and 14 touches. 4
10 Port Sprayed the ball a bit with his kicking in front half. Kicked a goal, but had to be cleaner. 3
11 Haw Did a few good things but wasn’t really an influence on the game at half forward. 4
12 Coll Great first half was a highlight. Ended with three goals and nine inside-50s. 8
13 Syd Good early burst and power but then impact waned as Swans got on top. 4
15 Adel Started well but a few sloppy kicks were costly. A hard worker however. 5
16 Frem Two first-term goals and important with power and speed at half forward. 6
17 StK Showed his power, especially early. Kicked the ball with depth on occasions to split Saints’ defence. 5
18 WCE Won plenty of the ball. Let himself down with decision-making at times though. 5
19 GCS Lively at half forward but mixed sublime with shocking in terms of ball use and decisions. 5
20 Haw Seven final-term disposals crucial. Kicked an early goal and played his part. 5
21 Port Six inside-50s, a goal and not afraid to get in the face of his opponents. 7
22 Carl Hobbled off in second term with ankle/thigh issue. Returned but far from best. 4
23 Quad.

1 GCS Copped a heavy knock early and underwent concussion test. Showed burst when back on. 5
2 GWS Kicked an early goal and had a few other chances which he bombed. Up and down. 5

14 NM Battled to get into the game and sprayed a few kicks. 3
15 WB Quiet afternoon. Burst onto the ball a few times but was quickly tackled. 3
16 Frem Kicked a goal and at least looked to take on the Dockers with ball in hand. 5

18 Port Sub. On in final term and added some run and energy. Had an impact. 2
19 Bris Two first term goals then efficiency and influenced dropped. 4
