1 Adel Great opportunist goal in the third term to keep the Giants in it at that stage. 4
2 NEAFL Won the ball at will in midfield and pushed forward for a goal. -
3 NEAFL Big ball winner in midfield with 36 touches and laid six tackles. Kicked a goal too. -
4 Port Had a bit of the ball in a midfield and forward role, but didn’t lock down a spot moving forward. 4
5 Syd Always hard at it and while not the flashiest Giant he is working to establish his niche. 5
6 WB Went to Stringer tin second half to try an curb his influence and did that well. Took a great mark in the final term. 6
7 StK Went about his business quietly but effectively to end with 22 possessions. Didn’t star but upheld his end of bargain. 6
8 NEAFL Okay without being a standout in midfield. 21 possessions and five clearances. -
9 NEAFL Superb and kept the Giants in the hunt. 37 possessions, eight inside 50s and six rebounds. -
10 WCE One of the bulls with 11 contested possessions among his 28 disposals. 7
11 Ess Not as prominent as last week, but took a key mark and goalled final term. 5
12 Carl Youngster did well in tough game. Used footy to advantage and was in some good spots to defend. 6
13 Bye.
14 Bris Won’t need to clean his boots after 14 of his 17 disposals were handpasses. 5
15 Geel Hit target with 13 of 14 disposals. Only two of his 14 touches were kicks. Got caught at times with ball in hand. 4
16 Haw Tough, 25 disposals and six tackles so had a lot of the footy. Doesn’t hurt you with his run though. 6
17 Syd Tried hard with seven tackles, but little impact with the footy with just two kicks. 4
18 Rich Played midfield for a long periods and okay in patches; 15 possessions and four tackles. 4
19 Frem Played on Fyfe in the first half and got belted. Went to him at times in second half, but was hardly sighted when he wasn’t on him. 3
20 Melb Some clever early touches in midfield, then rolled up sleeves for the fight against the wind. 6
21 WB Youngster was hardly sighted for most of the night. Will need to battle hard to keep his place in star studded line-up. 3
22 NEAFL Outstanding in midfield with 37 possessions and nine clearances. -
