4 VFL Solid again in the back half and has to come under consideration for Anzac Day. -
5 VFL Steady game again across half back, just had little to no support. Has to be nearing a senior return. -
6 VFL Can’t be far off a call up with another strong display. Gained plenty of distance with 18 kicks and found space around the ground. -
7 VFL On fire early and marked everything in sight. Quietened a touch, but still had a good day. How is he not playing seniors?! -
8 VFL Superb again in defence. 34 possessions and is now on the verge of a senior return. -
9 VFL Dominant down back with 41 possession. Took 11 marks and had five rebounds. -
10 Bris Quiet but fact he got through first game of the season was a huge positive. Will only get better. 4
11 Frem Not flashy but got a job done defensively 5
12 Melb Couple of skill errors from defence but can cut him some slack. Is slowly finding his niche at the senior level. 4
13 Bye.
14 VFL Outstanding at half back. 35 possessions, 13 marks and seven rebounds. -
15 VFL Solid effort but they are wasting their time leaving him in the VFL. Just play him, Bucks! -
16 Ess Had Stewart who got off the chain in second term. Battled hard but made some mistakes with ball in hand. 5
17 GCS Looked comfortable across half back, thwarting plenty of Suns entries. 21 possessions and nine marks. 6
18 Senior emergency.
19 Adel We all know the kid can play, just needs a good run of consecutive game to prove himself on the big stage. 6
20 NM Got caught out at times defensively but did show some glimpses of his kicking skills. Developing nicely. 7
21 Port Turning into the player Collingwood were hoping for, classy in defence and isn’t overawed. 7
22 Geel Good game. Positive for the side with a steady 23-disposal effort and some nice marks. 7
23 Melb Started on Pedersen, but also had some back issues. Went forward in last quarter. 5
