2017 Season

1 Hamstring.
2 NEAFL Mopped up well sweeping around the back half. -
3 NEAFL Helped keep the Thunder at bay down back with six rebounds. One of the better performers. -
4 Senior emergency.
5 NEAFL Excellent outing with 30 possessions and 11 marks. Drove the ball inside-50s five times as well. -
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 Syd Back in team at half back/wing. Won the ball well – especially in first half, but lacked a bit of polish. 6
8 Haw Most of his kicks were just banged onto his boot. Spent time on the wing but no positive effects. 3
9 Adel Exerted a lot of energy in defence and yet finished with only 13 diposals. 4
10 Coll Started forward but struggled and moved back. Hard to recall too many of his 14 possessions. 4
11 Bye.
12 Frem Came off the bench early in the game to make his presence felt in defence. 6
13 Port Battled manfully in defence but couldn’t stop Aaron Young from pinch hitting two goals. 5
14 NEAFL Swept across half back to play a handy role. -
15 NEAFL Played a strong role at half back with 26 possessions and seven rebounds. -
16 NEAFL One of the Lions best in massive win. 32 touches, six rebounds and four inside 50s. -
17 NEAFL Bye. -
18 NEAFL Strong performance off the half back line with 20 disposals. Used it well all day. -
19 NEAFL Worked his way into the game pretty well. Exposed a fair times defensively but his running and link up play impressed. 38 disposals. -
20 Didn’t play for Brisbane reserves.
21 Hamstring.
22 NEAFL Back from injury and wasn’t overly prominent. -
23 Hamstring.

2 Hamstring.
3 Hamstring.
4 Hamstring.
5 Hamstring.
6 NEAFL Won plenty of ball through the middle of the ground. Solid effort. -
7 Port Late call-up for the injured Merrett, was serviceable on a wing. 5
8 Coll Totally out-sized in a key defensive role when he had to mind Grundy and Cox. 4
9 NEAFL Named best for the Lions in big defeat. Had 27 touches roaming across half back. -
10 NEAFL Mopped up well across the middle of the ground and provided great drive -
11 Hamstring.
12 NEAFL Superb floating across half back with 35 possessions to be the Lions’ best. -

2015 Season

1 Coll Collected more disposals than some mids. Rebounded well out of defence. 6
2 NM Steady defender without starring. 4
3 Rich Started in defence but ended match in attack. Best work in backline. 5
4 WCE Third highest team stats but some of his defensive work and kicking ordinary. 6
5 GCS Got plenty of the footy and provided good rebound. 5
6 Carl Fine job defending at half back in first half. Injured in third and subbed off. 6
7 Port Has grown in defence. Took on Westhoff and won. 7
8 Ess Worked hard and consistently down back. 6
9 StK Found lacking foot speed at times. Too loose in defence. 5
10 GWS Sat a kick behind play to add defensive support and took some good marks. 7
12 WB Ran well out of defence on occasions. 4
13 Adel Arguably, the Lions best defender on the night. 6
14 Frem Used down back and was freed up behind ball a bit. Minimal impact. 4
15 Syd Won plenty of ball from defence and did what he could to stem the flow. 7
16 Melb Under siege down back. Won a lot of footy but has to work on his decision making 6
17 NM Didn’t muck around clearing the ball out of defence. Had 13 kick-ins. 5
18 Geel OK at times in defence but made a few mistakes too. 5
19 GCS Even contribution. 5
20 Carl One of his better efforts of late. 6
21 Adel Played as the plus one and was good, looks to have the right spot for him. 6
22 Haw Beaten in a few one-on-ones but tried hard in defence. 5
23 WB Even effort. 5

2014 Season

1 Haw Birchall was his man and he won a stack of footy. Will learn a bit. 3
2 Geel Youngster found slippery conditions tough to get a kick and had no influence. 2
3 GCS Provided a bit of a spark with two goals. 6
4 Port Working hard around the ground without getting the results. 4
5 Rich Made some bad handling errors, looked mostly out of his depth. 2
6 StK No impact. 3
7 Syd Came under notice with back-to-back goals in third term. 6
8 Ess Probably best game to date and Bombers had trouble controlling him. 7
9 NM Much quieter than previous week. 3
11 Carl Initially matched on Thomas and had a lot of the ball. 6
12 WB Subbed out in last term. Kicked a goal and covered some ground. 4
13 GWS A lot of touches early and although he tapered was one of better Lions. 6
14 Frem Couldn’t get his hands on it. 2
15 NM Even game although he did start on Gibson, possibly North’s best player. 5
16 Rich Loose on Ellis and moved. Lots of disposals in spots that weren’t dangerous. 4
17 WCE Subbed in third term. Limited opportunities. 3
18 NEAFL Rebounded well from senior omission to find a lot of ball. -
19 NEAFL Played at half back and gave good drive. -
20 Adel Subbed in at half time and acquitted himself well. 6
21 Coll Sub. On to join the party in final term but touched it only four times. 1
22 Shoulder.
