4   Didn’t play for Collingwood VFL.  
5 VFL Did some good things in the front half. Booted a goal and was lively at stages.
6 VFL Okay effort. Two goals, 17 disposals at 82 percent efficiency. Hard to see how senior spot opens up, though.
7 VFL Did some good things and worked hard enough. 12 possessions and three inside-50s.
8 VFL Did some handy things in the front half and finished with two goals.
9 VFL Okay in the front half with 15 touches and a couple of goals.
10   Senior emergency.  
11 Frem Quiet but his goal in the final term was vital. 3
12 Melb Youngster found the going tough. Kicked one goal but that was only highlight from an 12-disposal afternoon. 3
13   Bye.  
14 Port Gave very little to the effort as a mid-sized forward. One goal (from a lucky free) in third term his only highlight. 2
15 VFL Kicked two goals to help keep the Dogs at bay. Fair.
16 VFL Injured an ankle in the third quarter. Other than booting a goal, was quiet prior to that.
