Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Enters the last year of a lucrative contract and needs to find form and do it quickly after a disappointing 2012 campaign netted just eight games. Key will be finding a home having been tried everywhere from forward and midfield to on-ball. Could surprise, then again, a disappointing performance in first NAB Cup outing.

2013 NAB Cup:   One of club’s highest paid players although is anything but a lock for best 22. Form been just.

2013 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1   Senior emergency.  
2 Ess Gave some spark in the forward half for a side bereft of inspiration. 5
3 WCE Lively for a patch second-quarter but beaten by Butler. Subbed out. 4
4 GWS Sub. Provided some much-needed spark with two goals in final term. 3
5 Bris Sub. On late in the third term and kicked a goal. 1
6 VFL Did some good things forward, but was in and out.
7 GCS Sub. On third term but missed a sitter and another late in game. 1
8 Rich Turned clock back with three-goal first half. Best game for some time. 7
9 Frem OK again but didn’t have a great deal of support. One of the few to hit a target. 5
10 Haw Found a bit of the footy but wasted it at times. Certainly not the worst. 5
11 Coll Brilliant goal in first term and another in last. Not much in between. 3
13 StK Bobbed up occasionally around wings to chip in here and there. 4
14 WB Big third quarter. Enthusiasm infectious among teammates (and fans). 6
15 Syd Couldn’t get away from Smith and only one goal and two inside-50s. 3
16 Geel Hardly sighted with T. Hunt in his pocket – one effective disposals says it all. 1
17 Bris Kicked two goals and clean with ball in hand as always. 5
18 NM Had a shocker and subbed mid-way through the third. 1
19 GWS Sub. On in the third term and got involved in patches. 2
20 GCS Added some spark and fresh legs when he came on in final term. 2
21 Frem Provided spark coming on as the sub. Used ball well and worked hard. 4
22 Adel Started as the sub in his second to last game and is running on the spot. 3
23 WB Retiring champ chaired off with son Marley in arms by Sylvia and Jetta. In best. 6

2012 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1 Bris Had as many tackles as kicks (three) in first half. Only goal in junk time. 3
3 Rich Not sure what next step is for the veteran. No impact whatsoever. 2
4 WB Couple of flashy goals but little else. 3
5 StK Geary picked him up at first. Again showed signs he is on the way back. 5
6 Geel At the cross-roads. Hard to believe the player he has become. Struggled. 3
7 Haw Very quiet first half and it got only marginally better. 3
8 Syd Made one good smother, but otherwise useless in indigenous round. 1
10 VFL Back to some decent form. Lively around the packs.
11 VFL Starred early before being rested for the second half.
13 GWS Stats not huge but coach would be pleased with his pressure – five tackles. 6
15 VFL Great start but influence waned after main break.
