4 VFL Tried hard down back but didn’t have the greatest of afternoons. -
5 VFL The ball spent plenty of time in Werribee's back half. Competed hard, but wasn’t his best. -
6 VFL Still not getting much of the ball, but defensive work was okay. -
7 VFL Again didn’t see much of the ball, but okay in his defensive role. -

10 Bye.
11 VFL Did his bit down back – especially late when Richmond made a move. -

15 VFL Pressing claims for a senior debut. Marked well down back and read the play well. -
16 Frem On debut and after an early turnover, did some good things in the back half. 5
17 Port Playing just his second game and given the tough task of manning up on Robbie Gray, despite his two goals did very well. 6
18 Ess Held Cale Hooker for three quarters before the flood gates opened in the fourth. Didn’t deserve the sledging and hair being ruffled by Hooker 4
19 Melb Spent long periods on Watts and stood up well for a player in just his fourth game. Good effort. 6
20 Coll Battling and might need to go back to the VFL to regain confidence. Some horrible defensive positioning and decisions. 2
21 Haw Reasonably solid down back. Still very much learning his trade. 4
22 StK On the wrong end of Bruce’s knee to head in marking contest and was in a sorry state. Stretchered off. 0
23 Concussion.
