9 NEAFL A driving force in middle with nine clearance to go with 30 possessions. -
10 Coll Battled hard but was slow and got caught four times for holding the pill. Couldn’t questions the effort. 4
11 Bye.
12 Frem Showed aggression at the ball. Great second effort to bag goal in last term and then celebrated with a strut and arms out-stretched. 5
13 Port Even game with inside grunt and outside run, doesn’t lack confidence in his own ability. 5
14 GWS Paid little attention to Shiel, racking up a team high 32 disposals although his opponent starred for the Giants. 8
15 Ess Solid day without being spectacular. 5
16 Geel Besides continually dipping his head and drawing the odd free kick, he did keep at it until the end. 6
17 Rich Kicked Lions first goal and tried hard in middle. Kicking needs to be cleaned up. 5
18 Carl Hard at it. As usual continually ducked or drove his head into an opponent’s arms when tackled which helped him to four frees. 6
19 WCE Struggled to get into the game until it was out of reach. 3
20 WB Played well in patches and nailed a pressure goal in the third term. 5

16 GCS Tough and hard at the ball and had seven inside 50’s. 8
17 GWS Gave a shotgun action when kicking a goal in opening goal. Fired blanks most of the day. 5
18 Ess Put head over the ball and continued to drive his legs forward in midfield. First win as a Lion. 7
19 Port Big hit in on Wingard his stamp on the game. Disposal count exaggerated his value. 5
