2017 Season

1 Haw Quieter night overall with just 11 touches, but still did a few handy things. 4
2 Bris Played well in patches. Kicked a goal in last quarter when needed. 5
3 Carl Fumbled his way through the day in what was a horror. Two kicks for the day. 1
4 Adel Two opportunist goals but hardly sighted, needs to do more to make his presence felt. 5
5 VFL Laid 11 tackles to ensure Collingwood never got any room to move. Add in 22 possessions and four clearances too. -
6 VFL Tackled his heart out – 14 tackles to go with 20 possessions. Impressive workrate this season. -
7 Rested.
8 VFL Impressed with 21 touches, two goals and a handful of tackles. Playing good footy. -
9 VFL Continues to grow in midfield role the longer he spends in there. Had 34 possessions and booted two goals. -
10 VFL Did well in patches, but lacked consistent impact overall. -
11 VFL A beast at the stoppages with 11 clearances to go with his 32 possessions. Relishing midfield time. -
12 VFL One of the Bombers best again. 28 touches, nine clearances and five inside 50s. Super. -
13 Bye.
14 Syd Played forward after starring as a midfielder in VFL. Didn’t use the ball as well as he’d hope. 4
15 Bris Matched with Rich early as he spent more time in midfield. His game tailed off later. 5
16 Senior emergency.
17 VFL A good game in the midfield. Had 26 touches and four goals. One "everything clicks" preseason away. -
18 VFL Found a fair amount of the footy in the middle, but his disposals just didn't translate to anything. -
19 VFL Another good day in midfield. Becoming a better contested player with 10 contested possessions and five tackles. -
20 VFL Bye. -
21 VFL Not as influential as he has been, but defensively work was good around the ball. -
22 VFL Excellent outing with 30 possessions, eight marks. Bombers best. -
23 VFL Won the ball fairly well, but ball use was below par. -

2016 Season

1 GCS Showed some really good signs and booted a clever goal. 6
2 Melb Last-quarter goal proved vital and at times showed why he was a first-round draft pick. 5
3 Port Someone for Bomber fans to get enthused about, was good from few disposals. 6
4 Geel Didn’t get into the game to any great degree but all good experience for the future. 2
5 Coll Work-rate was good over the four quarters, finishing with six tackles and a goal. 5
6 Carl Got under the guard to grab 20 disposals, five inside-50s and four tackles. Handy. 6
7 Senior emergency.
8 NM Great effort. Steady through the middle then went forward to kick two last-term goals. 6
9 StK Kicked one goal and missed sitter. Continues to be in developmental stage. 3
10 Rich Not his night but all part of learning curve. Made a few blues but did have six inside-50s. 3
11 Frem Wasn’t his night. A contested mark was his highlight. 4
12 Haw Not much of a say up forward but it’s all about getting games into him. 3
13 VFL Returned to VFL level and looked a cut above at times. Strong effort. -
14 VFL Bye. -
15 VFL Looked a cut above in all phases – 10 tackles to boot. Might get call up. -
16 StK Operated mainly as a winger and had a solid, productive game. 5
17 Rich Off the pace and most early touches were either the wrong decision or a skill error. Still learning. 4
18 Bris Kicked a goal after half time siren and gave some lip, but still has a way to go at top level. 4
19 Adel Outpointed Talia for a late goal. 5
20 VFL Played some attacking footy and tried hard with 20 disposals and three inside-50s. -
21 Senior emergency.
22 WB In defence did a few handy things, but didn’t stand out. 3
23 Carl Three opportunist goals in arguably his most promising game for the club. 7
