2017 Season

1 GWS Did what he had to do and negated Rory Lobb. 5
2 Haw Went into defence to play lock down role in Rioli at times and did that job supremely well to be a key in the victory. 6
3 Port Sticks to his opponent closely but was heart is in your mouth with his disposal. 6
4 Ess Copped an unfortunate poke in the eye and was taken to hospital for precautionary reasons. 3
5 Eye.
6 Rich Copped two heavy bumps in the first term from Cotchin and Rioli respectively but bounced back admirably. 5
7 NM Fumbly and unsure down back. For the first time this year he was exposed. Will learn a lot from the outing. 3
8 Melb Did well to contain Jeff Garlett in the first half but struggled to keep up with him in the second. 5
9 Bris Dour effort and a good contributor across four quarters. 6
10 Frem Never shirks a contest and puts his body on the line in every attack on the footy, laid eight bruising tackles. 6
11 Geel Had task on Menzel (three goals) but was actually one of the better Crows on the night. 6
12 StK Continues to ply his trade across halfback in an unassuming fashion. 6
13 Bye.
14 Haw Easily knocked off the ball, and always seems to come off second best in a one on one contest. 5
15 Carl Reaction time is not quick enough as a defender, needs to be quicker in mind, no questioning his commitment. 4
16 WB Jake Stringer took a hold of him early but redeemed himself with some strong one on one contested marking. 6
17 Melb Just fair in the back half. Not a big night. 4
18 Geel Was given task on Dangerfield when he played deep forward. Did that well but was helped by team’s dominance. 5
19 Coll Great job on Jamie Elliott restricting him to one goal. 6
20 Port Played his role in a defensive back six which only conceded 31 inside-50’s. 6
21 Ess Low key game but played his part. 5
22 Syd Outpointed by Gary Rohan on two occasions which were costly resulting in goals in such a close match. 5
23 WCE Couldn’t control the Eagles key forwards. 4
QF GWS Spent time on the dangerous Greene and did his job well. 6
PF Geel Young defender did all the right things throughout and was a handy contributor. 6
GF Rich Plugged away down back and did some good things against the flow. Can hold his head high. 6
