3 Melb Debutant’s pressure was great in first term and set up a goal. Faded as game dragged on but can’t blame the kid – 16 disposals. 5
4 Haw Certainly doesn’t look out of place and showed poise with ball in hand. Might get weeks for elbow on Hodge. 5
5 Suspended.
6 Suspended.
7 GCS Kid couldn’t get near it all night. Good experience but only had three kicks. Set up one goal early. 1
8 Ess One effort wasn’t up to AFL standard and struggled all night apart from one nice snap goal. 2
9 WB Intent to tackle and play aggressively was great and much better than previous weeks. Just 14 disposals but good for fifth game. 4
10 Port One kick to half time and second kick went through for a goal in third term. That was it for the night. 2
11 Adel Bobbed up at times playing high half forward role for a goal in third term. Didn’t star but starting to find his feet. 5
12 Bye.
13 WCE Struggled all night. Two set-shots for goal in third term were horrendous. Might be due to return to VFL. 2
14 Frem Struggled until snagged two goals in three minutes to start final term which was critical; 13 of his 14 touches hit target. 5
15 GWS Flitted in and out of the game for a goal and 13 possessions. Around the ball more than he has been previous week. 5
16 Bris Made the most of his limited opportunities by kicking three goals from only seven kicks. 6
17 Haw Set up one goal when intercepted a handpass and gifted Menzel a goal. Two kicks. 3
18 Adel Great for the kid to get some games but the Parson’s Project is over for this year. Offered up two kicks in another quiet one. 1
19 Carl Worked hard but again impact not enough to suggest he doesn’t need a rest. Six kicks for the night. Two tackles. 3
20 Syd Needs a spell in the VFL to get some confidence. Did kick one in third term but that was only highlight. 2
21 Rich Chipped in spasmodically but had little influence forward of centre. 3
22 Coll Flitted in and out of the game to grab 11 effective disposals and six score involvements. 5
23 GWS Copped a leg injury in second term and was done for the night after one kick and two handpasses. 1
QF Rich Injured ankle in second term but looked right out of his depth. Did not lay a tackle and kicked one goal. 2
SF Syd The salad section of a Scottish supermarket offered more than he did in one of the Cats few quiet players. Keep his spot? 1
PF Senior emergency.
