4 Geel Nearly got arrested for trespassing he was that quiet. Had twice as many tackles (four) as he did kick (two). 1
5 WCE Confidence-boosting mark and tackle early. Competed hard all day and ended with a well-earned three goals. 7
6 StK Started forward but also used in ruck. Did a few nice things but not enough. 3
7 Melb Great game highlighted by five of his 10 marks taken in contested fashion. Added two goals to ice best game of year. 8
8 Bris Was moved back in the second half after looking unconvincing forward. Completely shut down Schache. 5
9 Hip.
10 Hip.
11 VFL Booted three goals and was important in attack in a topsy-turvy contest. -
12 GCS Quiet early then came to life in final term with two goals that spurred team back into the game. 6
13 Bye.
14 Adel Didn’t find a lot of the footy but his speed and height worried the Crows and was rewarded with two goals. 5
15 Coll Gangly forward chimed in with two goals from limited opportunities. Nearly took two screamers. 4
16 GWS When he gets a run and jump looks good. But one mark for the afternoon when Gunston was moved to halfback wasn’t enough 3
17 Geel Couldn’t get into the game at all up forward. One goal from three kicks. 2
18 Frem Quiet. Kicked a goal in the final term. 3
19 Syd Strong performance with a goal and 16 disposals. 6
20 Rich Rangy red-head (or is it Caribbean gold?)…whatever it is it was hardly sighted for the day. 3
21 NM Struggled to have much of an impact. Maybe feeling it towards the end of the season? 3
22 Carl A night to forget. No influence at all. 2
23 WB Played as a key defender and floated across for a handful of nice marks. Kicking and decision-making needs work. 6

3 VFL Great work ethic in the front half to present a target. Kicked three goals. -
4 StK Wasn’t a big factor but bobbed up for two handy goals in the end. 4

6 GWS Played in defence opposed to Patton and then Lobb. Did good job on General. 4
7 Rich Picked up by Bachelor initially and not significant. 3
8 Frem Didn’t win a heap of it in attack but definitely progressing with his football. 5
9 Syd Had big troubles trying to hold ground in contests with Grundy. 3

11 Melb Marked well early and ended with two goals. Showed something again in attack. 5
13 NM Took nice grabs and continues to edge forward in development. 4
14 GCS Quiet up forward. Four marks and two inside-50s but no goals. 3

18 Rich Struggled to get into the game. One mark roaming around up forward. 1
19 Carl Hardly noticed. Failed to make an impact in the forward half. 2
