2016 Season

1 WCE Has lost weight and made the most of that. Kicked three goals. Moved well. 6
2 NM Tackled well and brought others into the contest. 5
3 Geel One disposal in first half and three kicks for the game in a horror return to Simonds Stadium. 1
4 GCS Spent more time looking for free kicks than the ball. 5
5 WB A victim of friendly fire when colliding with Martin and was concussed. Took no further part. 2
6 Syd Less staging and more foraging ended with a three goal haul for the small forward. 7
7 Port In the wars all game, knocks to the knee and head, still one of the best. 7
8 Coll Lots of energetic running but not a lot of return for effort. 5
9 Melb Used at half back and tried hard but not often hugely damaging. Five rebound 50s. 5
10 Haw Honest trier playing mostly in backline – 12 contested possessions, eight rebound-50s. 7

2015 Season

1 Coll Spent most of the night in attack. Played in bursts and kicked two goals. 6
2 NM In amongst it and showed an aggressive approach. 6
3 Rich Inconsistent. Lions need more than his bursts of brilliance. 4
4 WCE Possession count over-stated his worth. Only seemed to put in when it suited. 5
5 GCS Struggled with the tempo and caught with the footy several times. 3
6 Carl Hugely important in second half with 15 possessions and a goal. 7
7 Port Coming good. Followed his effort against Carlton with solid performance. 7
8 Ess Had a dirty day. 2
9 StK Up among the better Lions players. 6
10 GWS Great battle with Ward in midfield. Lowered colors but not disgraced. 6
12 WB Did a few nice things including a big goal. Worked hard in second half. 6
13 Adel Played in bursts and another who didn’t step up in final term. 5
14 Frem OK in midfield battle then finished deep in defence on Walters. 6
15 Syd Buzzed around wing/half forward and big third term a highlight. 7
16 Melb Tried hard but sold teammates into trouble a lot and decision making not great. 6
17 NM Shared responsibilities with Robinson in minding Zebell. Mildly effective. 6
18 Geel Struggled to get into game against former club and missed a few shots. 4
19 GCS Played in bursts and with great effect. 7
20 Carl Played in effective bursts, finishing with three goals. 6
21 Adel Electrifying start with the first two goals of the game. 7
22 Haw Kept quiet by Shiels who won his own ball too. Came into game later on. 5
23 WB Scrounged well in attack. 6

8 Coll Two goals in third term but only 11 disposals in other three quarters. 5
9 Port Kept midfield ticking over with five inside-50s and seven tackles. Handy. 7

11 GWS Cats’ best until knocked out in sickening head clash with Johnson. 7
13 Bris Two late goals in first term but generally not a factor – only one clearance. 5

GF    

2012 Season

3 NM Threw himself at the contest for 16 disposals. 4
4 Rich Fine game. Did his best work late after being knocked silly; 23 touches. 8
5 Bris Relished low-to-ground contest until copped boot to face in third. 7
6 Melb Hard to believe he went pick 40. Burrowed in and one plenty of hard ball. 7
7 Adel Hit the scoreboard twice but sat out last 40 minutes with corked calf. 5
10 VFL Copped a heavy hit after starting the game fairly.
13 Syd Provided a real spark late in the game when thrown in. 3
14 Port Played with some zip around the footy which stood out – seven clearances. 7
15 GCS Ran hard to be a link option through the middle – 11 contested possessions. 6
16 Coll Five clearances but rarely in space and swamped by Magpie midfield. 4
18 Adel One of the Cats best in midfield. Creative throughout. 7
19 Haw Not his best effort and didn’t hurt the Hawks often. Did kick an early goal. 4
20 WCE Seven clearances and willingness to attack with the ball first class. 7
22 WB Laid team-high seven tackles and had six inside-50s. Among the best. 7
