2017 Season

1 -
2 Coll Returned in the back pocket, picked up Broomhead and won the contest after conceding some early touches. 6
3 WCE Not his best. May be demoted to VFL next week. Ended with 11 touches. 2
4 Bris Started on bench. Was called on to shadow Zorko but to little effect. 5
5 Melb Just 10 touches and had to check at times if he was out there. Didn’t use ball as well as can do. 3
6 Adel Unsighted, lacked the run and carry of previous weeks. 3
7 WB Crucified with terrible deliberate out of bounds decision. Did a few nice things. 5
8 Frem Despite 16 possessions he had no impact on the flow of the game playing in defence. 3
9 GWS Got his fair share of footy in the back half and used it well. 6
10 Ess Running defender got pinged for deliberate rushed behind but did a fine job beating Green who did zilch. Pace good. 5
11 NM Dashed out of the back half at times. Didn’t star but played a role alongside the bigger key defenders. 5
12 Bye.
13 Syd Stationed down back and was handy enough as a small back. Had five rebounds. 6
14 Carl Got going in second term in back half to be a decent distributor of the footy. 6
15 Port Kept the dangerous Jake Neade to one goal and bobbed up late in the game with a goal of his own. 6
16 StK Not the worst and tried hard in back half. 5
17 Bris Okay as a running defender. Had 19 touches, but turned a few over early on. 5
18 GWS Small defender was hardly sighted. Just seven possessions and three inside-50s. 3
19 VFL Played above VFL level. Elite with his ball use off halfback and even snuck forward and kicked a goal. -
20 VFL Bye. -
21 VFL Rebounded well at stages but kicking wasn’t as precise as normal. -
22 VFL Set up the play off half back with his kicking and run. -
23 VFL Didn’t kick the ball well, but got plenty of it on a wing. -
QF VFL One of the Tigers best with his set up work and run out of defence. -
SF VFL Given too much space at half back to set up play. 24 possessions and five inside 50s. -
PF VFL Rebounded well, but Port cut down his space well at times. 17 possessions. -
GF Senior emergency.

2016 Season

1 Played in VFL trial against Northern Blues.
2 Coll Kicked three goals on debut as a small forward. Plenty to build on and took chances well. 6
3 Adel Couldn’t replicate his debut performance. 3
4 VFL Lively effort with 20 possessions and a goal after senior exposure. -
5 VFL Goalless and didn’t have a big impact. -
6 VFL Moved into the back half this week and won the ball well. Nice outing. -
7 Haw On Howe. Good work ethic and shows some promise. 4
8 Syd Quiet night until injuring shoulder in the last quarter. 3
9 Frem Wasn’t a big factor on the night in windy conditions. 1
10 VFL In and out but not his best outing. 17 possessions in back half. -
11 VFL Tried hard on a disappointing day for the Tigers. Five inside-50s, five rebounds. -
12 GCS Used at half back to utilise his kicking skills and OK in that role. 5
14 Bris Used the ball well coming out of the back half to help set up attacks. 6
15 Port Six inside-50s and clever goal in the second term. 6
16 WB Played role of sweeper in defence and found a bit of the ball. Efficiency down. 5
17 Ess Continued growth down back but had hands full at times defensively. 6
18 Haw Made some blues out of the back half with skill and decision-making. 3
19 GWS OK in defensive half. Had 20 kicks and hit most of his targets by foot. 6
20 Coll Used as designated kick-in player and ok in that role. Used ball short a lot. 5
21 Geel Won some rebound ball in the half and released it well further afield. 6
22 StK Under siege down back and was hardly sighted as a rebounding option. 4
23 Syd Found it difficult generating drive out of back half. 3
