2017 Season

4 VFL Key defender wasn’t required to doo too much and was pretty quiet. -
5 VFL Impressive game down back despite the defeat. Had 21 touches and took 11 marks. Blanketed Lisle at times. -
6 VFL Steady enough down back with 16 touches. Coming along nicely. -
7 VFL Used the ball well in defence and was solid enough on his Hawks opponents. -
8 VFL Battled gamely down back despite being under the pump. Good effort. -
9 VFL Steady enough down back. Looking more and more like a senior player of the future. -
10 Bye.
11 VFL Not his best game down back. Will no doubt bounce back. -
12 Bye.
13 VFL Had hands full all night down back and was limited in what he did offensively. -
14 VFL Played his part in the back half, but wasn’t overly busy. -
15 VFL Steady enough down back in win over Coburg. -
16 VFL Good down back and then bobbed up in attack with a nice goal. -
17 VFL Did well in his match-up with Cloke. Six kicks went at 100 per cent efficiency. -
18 VFL Was poor, which is an outlier because he has been good this year. Just 13 touches. -
19 VFL Steady performance in defence. 12 disposals usually hit the target. -
20 VFL Quiet game. No real impact in defence. -
21 Rested.
22 VFL Used in attack and was handy at stages, but still a work in progress. -
23 VFL Played back and was okay, then thrown into the ruck. Not the worst. -

2016 Season

5 VFL Battled away in defence but was rarely put under any pressure. -
6 VFL Steady enough down back for the Cats in win over Coburg. -
7 VFL Stood Grimley and kept him super quiet until very late in game. Top effort. -

9 Rested.
10 VFL Bye. -
11 VFL Found it tough going at times in defence, particularly after half time. -
12 VFL Hardly sighted down back and had next to no influence on the game. -
13 VFL Key defender’s learning curve continues. Reasonable against older opponents. -
14 VFL Defended stoutly with four rebounds but not much else. Developing OK. -
15 VFL Bye. -
16 VFL Went to Liam Jones and kept him to 1.1 from four marks. Solid. -
17 VFL Not asked to do much down back but did what was required. -
18 VFL Took 10 marks (two contested) and played his role down back. -
19 VFL Key defender did well to nullify Gault given weight of ball against. -

21 VFL Quiet offensively and was under siege all afternoon. Three touches for the day. -
22 Quad.
