4 Geel Played down back and was under fire all day. On end of worst umpiring decision in recent memory after a great tackle. 2
5 WCE Off half back and looked assured. Attacked the ball well and picked right times to get involved in transition. 6
6 StK Stationed at half back once again and did a few nice things but wasn’t a big factor. 5
7 Melb Youngster showed plenty in defence. Defended grimly and attacked when he could with 18 possessions. 6
8 Bris One of the rare quiet Hawks today. Only had five disposals. 3
9 Coll Did plenty of the heavy lifting in defence for 16 disposals. Shows promise. 5
10 Syd Didn’t waste a possession down back and is growing with each passing week. 6
11 Port Youngster will learn plenty from the hit-out but experience wasn’t a pleasant one. Zero influence on the game’s flow. 2
12 GCS Youngster struggled to get into the game. Had more tackles (seven) than kicks (six) which is never a great sign. 2
13 Bye.
14 Adel Wasn’t having any of this is the best attack in league business, head over the ball at all times. 6
15 Coll Youngster used the ball well (18 of his 19 touches hit the target) and certainly didn’t look out of place. 6
16 GWS Almost had as many tackles as touches. 8 tackles and 9 disposals. Would like more of the footy though. 5
17 Geel Youngster did a couple of things but in the end was pretty quiet; 10 disposals. 3
18 Frem Controlled the small forwards and won the ball too. 6
19 Syd Left the game early due to concussion. 3
20 Rich Youngster showed his wares in defence but in the end struggled to have any impact; 11 possessions. 3
21 NM Gets to the right spots. Excellent opening quarter, but faded. 5
22 Carl Had his work cut with the dangerous Pickett but still collected 18 disposals. Penetrating by foot. 5
23 WB Played as small defender and played his role okay although Picken caused some troubles.. Got into some niggle at times. 5
