2017 Season

1 Frem Kicked goal of the day after three bounces along the wing. Pressure good despite modest stats. 4
2 Hand.
3 Hand.
4 Haw Impacted the game when he went near the ball and showcased his hardness. Six tackles and a goal good reward. 6
5 StK Quiet until late in game when came to life with a couple of goals. Got feisty with a few Saints including Riewoldt/Carlisle. 3
6 Coll First goal of game then couldn’t get into the contest at all. Tried to be physical with a few Pies but it backfired. 2
7 GCS Struggled. Looked better when given a run in the midfield but impact overall wasn’t huge. Six effective disposals. 2
8 Ess Didn’t have a huge impact but at least played with some aggression. Had a quarter of Cats tackles in first three quarters. 3
9 WB Set up early Blicavs goals then pinged a hamstring before quarter time and night was done. 1
10 Hamstring.
11 Adel Gave away a silly 50-metre penalty that cost a goal. Quiet one with three effective disposals but did lay seven tackles. 3
12 Bye.
13 WCE Kicked first goal in opening 90 seconds and then suffered injury soon after and was done for the day. 1
14 Hamstring.
15 Hamstring.
16 Hamstring.
17 Hamstring.

19 Carl First-quarter goal and had three on the board until pinged a hamstring in final term. Disaster for the kid. 6
20 Hamstring.
21 Hamstring.
22 Hamstring.
23 Hamstring.
QF Hamstring.
SF Hamstring.
PF Adel Kicked team’s first goal and that was about. Got through the game, which was the ironic positive. 3

2016 Season

1 Suspended.
2 Suspended.
3 Bris One great passage of play set up a Guthrie goal but otherwise hardly sighted. 1
4 Ess Laid eight brutal tackles and pressure first class. Among the best. 7
5 Port Kicked a second-term goal and took a nice mark. Modest stats but all good experience. 3
6 GCS From limited chances kicked three goals. Seems to be getting more confident with game time. 5
7 WCE Injured leg early and while returned looked severely hampered. Kicked one goal late. 3
8 Knee.
9 Knee.

14 VFL Played second half only (14 disp) and buzzed about in good return from injury. -
15 VFL Bye. -
16 Syd Some of what he tried didn’t come off but at least gave a spark at times. 5
17 Frem Caught trying to do too much at times but kicked a goal and laid three tackles. 4
18 Adel One goal and a score assist from six kicks. Flashed in and out. 4
19 WB Couple of things he did provided a glimpse into the future. He’ll be a star. 4
20 Ess Snagged two goals but at times tried to do too much. Four inside-50s. 5
21 Knee.

23 VFL Seven inside-50s, five clearances and seven tackles. Good return from injury. -

2015 Season

1 Haw First-gamer couldn’t find any space to use his x-factor. Great experience. 2
2 Frem Sub. On third term but failed to have a kick. 0
3 GCS Sub. On early to replace Bartel. Five disposals in final term were handy. 3
4 NM Kid found the footy elusive but his physicality continues to stand out. 2
5 VFL Back in form after AFL axing. 22 touches, one goal. -
6 Coll Sub. Sealed win with a brilliant snap goal… and celebration to match. 3
7 Rested.
8 VFL Burst in and out a few times but was subdued by Port. -
9 Adductor.
10 Adductor.
11 VFL Quiet on return with 11 possessions, goal. -

14 Adductor.
15 VFL Ran well off half back on return from injury. -

17 Just nine touches and wasn’t a big factor.
18 Bris Sub. On for a run in final term down back. Couple of touches. 1
19 Syd Still playing junior footy. Unlikely to stay in team but great experience. 2
20 Haw Sub. One nice running goal and should have jagged another. 1
21 StK Sub. On to start second half. Set one goal up and kicked another late. 2
22 Coll Made mistakes but got to love the way he attacks the game. 5
23 Adel Excited and frustrated. Needs to work on his short kicking over summer. 3
