16 VFL Took some good strong marks – especially late. Encouraging signs. -
17 VFL Didn't have a massive impact in the air and was shifted back in the last quarter. Just the five touches. -
18 VFL Shocking weather for key position players. Took just three marks and had nine disposals. -
19 VFL Ineffectual up forward in first half. Can be ran off when ball hits deck. Wasn't disgraced when moved back. Still long term prospect. -
20 VFL Played on Keeffe for long periods and tried hard enough. -
21 VFL Did well under pressure down back and continues to improve each week. -
22 VFL Very good down back again. Looks comfortable in the role. -
23 Bris Debutante looked at home at centre half back with occasional run in ruck. But stretchered off after head clash with Durdin. 5
