2017 Season

1 Coll Hard-working forward stuck seven tackles and kicked a goal. 5
2 -
3 Frem Kicked one goal but only managed 13 disposals. Has to get more involved. 4
4 NM Among Dogs’ best with 23 effective disposals from a total of 27. Four inside-50s rounded out a workmanlike effort. 7
5 Bris Great game. Knows how to find space, uses footy well and can go and win his own ball. Among the better performers. 8
6 GWS Young ‘Pasty’ was superb with his run and carry highlighted by five clearances and five inside-50s. 7
7 Rich Of his 20 disposals 16 were by hand. Useful in his role. 5
8 WCE Did okay. Good with his hands. 6
9 VFL One of the Bullies best in loss to Geelong. 26 possessions and tried hard throughout. -
10 VFL Was everywhere. 38 possessions, seven clearances, three score assists and 11 tackles. Sensational. -
11 Bye.
12 Syd Kicked a nice goal in the second term from the pocket and got a bit of the ball. Fair. 5
13 Melb In after spell in VFL but not his best day. Six kicks, three tackles and four inside-50s. 2
14 NM Among the best with six clearances, three inside-50s and 13 score involvements. Great game. 8
15 WCE Six tackles to go with his 21 touches a reasonable return but also found the going hard against Eagles mids. 5
16 Adel Bulldogs best player on the night with eight clearances, three inside-50’s and eight tackles. 8
17 Carl Ran hard and won the ball well all day. Ended with 26 disposals, three clearances and two goals. 7
18 GCS Best outing in many weeks and won a lot of the ball drifting up from half forward. 7
19 Ess Busy and productive afternoon highlighted by strong running and workrate. Gained nearly 360 metres and used ball well. 6
20 Bris A gutsy smother on a Zorko kick almost ended badly when he needed attention for sore ribs. Stuck at the task all game. 7
21 GWS Solid effort. Couldn’t question what he brought to the table but lacked support in second half. 7
22 Port A good ball winner, but ducked for frees alot. Just has to get that trait out of his game and he’ll become a fine player. 7
23 Haw Youngster finished year in style with 26 disposals, six tackles and 11 score involvements. Good season. 7

2016 Season

1 Frem Played with great enthusiasm. Took a few great marks and was consistently involved. 6
2 StK Provided headaches for Geary and showed great strength overhead for his size. Impressive, 7
3 Haw Only 12 touches but a pest up forward with two goals. 6
4 Carl Played across half forward and handy without setting game alight. One goal. 4
5 Bris Made the most of reprieve as late inclusion with two goals and 25 touches. Going places. 7
6 NM Matched on McDonald initially and had a solid game. 5
7 Adel Looks a player. In and out of the game but he did some good things. 4
8 Melb Chipped in for a goal and three inside-50s. Great ability to draw a high free kick. 6
9 GWS Had difficulty getting into the game, but converted his opportunities with 2.0. 4
10 Coll Not a major factor but still made a contribution. 5
11 WCE Going well until injured foot just before half time and was out for the remainder. 3
