2016 Season

1 GWS Looked a bit rusty after missing a few weeks but kicked two goals and worked hard. 5
2 Ess Double-grabbed a few times and looked slightly off the pace. Ankle injury still worrying him? 3
3 NM Kicked Dees’ first goal but missed a soda on run late in final term. 3
4 Ankle.
5 Ankle.
6 Ankle.
7 Ankle.
8 Ankle.
9 VFL First game back after ankle injury and was nursed through. Will need another week or two. -
10 VFL Bye. -
11 Haw Physicality and presence across half forward but drifted out in final term. 5
12 Coll Huge early then copped a knock to his face and rarely sighted after quarter time. 4
13 Syd Had a handful of touches at half forward and big body handy at times. Quieter in second half. 4
15 Adel In and out with his strong bodied, but couldn’t shake a few tackles. Just fair. 5
16 Frem More midfield minutes than recent weeks and important with strong body around ball. 7
17 StK OK at start but lacked impact as the game wore on in midfield and at half forward. Looked slow. 4
18 Hip.
19 GCS Didn’t see a lot of the ball, but kicked three goals that proved vital in the end result. 6
20 Haw Last term stepped up to be a huge factor. One goal and three inside-50s. 5
21 Port Hardly sighted, well held by Broadbent. 3
22 Carl Got an early goal but made some costly mistakes and lacked confidence in own finishing. 4
23 Geel One goal from five kicks and three inside-50s. Quiet sort of day from half forward. 4

2015 Season

1 GCS Did well on debut in attack and with bursts through midfield. Looks a handy recruit. 5
2 GWS Tried hard on return to hometown but didn’t have a big impact. 4
3 Adel Burst out of the blocks in the first term with 10 disposals. 6
4 Rich Readymade for league footy with big body and attack on ball/man. Fine night. 8
5 Frem Hard worker in midfield and at half forward. Kicked a goal. 6
6 Syd Tore in and used frame to advantage but couldn’t swing momentum. 5
7 Haw Five inside-50s but unable to assert physicality on game. 3
8 WB Close to best with seven clearances, 13 contested possessions and 4 inside-50s. 8
9 Port OK effort but like teammates, was overwhelmed by Port’s surge. 5
10 Coll Going well until thigh injury just before half time ended his day. Big blow. 4
11 Hamstring.
12 Hamstring.
13 Hamstring.
14 Hamstring.
15 Ess Worked tirelessly. Tackled hard and paved way for teammates with aggression. 7
16 Bris Didn’t use ball as well as he can but played part at half forward/midfield. 6
17 StK Virtually no impact and was subbed off at three-quarter time. 1
18 Coll Bounced back from previous week’s poor game. One goal at crucial time. 6
19 Ankle.
20 Ankle.
21 Ankle.
