2017 Season

2 WB Came in to play down back and while looked rusty (gave away a few free kicks) he showed attacking flair. 4
3 Coll After sluggish start he got going. Dare and guile from defence is a real thing of beauty. Just backs himself. 6
4 WCE A few nervy moments early but then was clean and elusive with ball in hand. Went to Kennedy at times in second half. 4
5 NEAFL Found some form in the back half. 20 possessions and six marks.
6 NEAFL Steady without starring down back. 18 possessions and four rebounds.
7   Suspended.

19 Frem More good signs. Composed and got the job done. 6
20 Port Did his job with minimal fuss down back. Hit the target with all 18 possessions. 6
21 StK Cult hero to fans behind goals and showed good judgment down back. 6
22 NM Found the going tough on Daw early, but kept a level head to produce a good performance. 5
23 Rich Stuck to task well on first-gamer Chol. Found a lot of space to take eight marks. 6
