2017 Season

1 -
2 NEAFL Tried hard in the back half but was outsized on occasions. -
3 NEAFL Did well in the back half in a defensive role. Got a bit of ball himself too. -
4 Senior emergency.
5 GWS First gamer faced uphill battle against talented GWS forward pack. Foot disposal was accurate. 3
6 Carl Kid did some good things both forward and back. Stats modest but worth persisting with as a defender. 4
7 Bris Troubled a bit by Close in the air in defence. Looked a bit shaky at times. 4
8 NM Young defender wasn’t a factor. 2
9 StK Couple of wobbly moments early down back, but stuck to his task and is learning every week. 3
10 Haw Hand a few different matchups, but had Sicily for long periods. Okay, but not outstanding. 5
11 Bye.
12 WB Youngster has more muscle than a seafood buffet and getting more comfortable using it by the week. Steady effort. 4
13 NEAFL Didn’t have much to do down back overall, but did what was required. -
14 Ess Struggled with Stewart in first half. Slightly better after main break. 4
15 Melb Took some good intercept marks and played his part in the defensive half. 6
16 GCS Probably had his best game in the seniors, kicked his first goal in the big league late on 7
17 GWS Confident in the contest and bringing the ball out of defence, even if a few errors. Ready for major role when Grundy retires. 5
18 StK Matched on Riewoldt and held his own in first half then got better as game progressed. 6
19 Haw Only 9 touches in a tough outing for him. 3
20 Geel Key defender didn’t really have a match-up but wasn’t able to take advantage and hurt Cats’ offensively. 2
21 Frem Stats not big, but did his job in the Sydney backline. 5
22 Adel Got the run around from the Crows best forward on the night Mitch McGovern. 4
23 Carl Had a great tussle with Curnow. Coming along nicely as a key defender. 6
EF Quad.
SF Senior emergency.
