2017 Season

1 StK Won a fair bit of the ball without being damaging. 6
2 Carl One of the few Dees to use the ball well throughout in his role on the wing. Steady afternoon. 6
3 Geel Great enthusiasm around the ball and ran hard to win it forward of centre all day. Did fade a tad but solid effort. 7
4 Frem Quiet day. Just the 16 touches and wasn’t able to get on the outside as much as usual to drive the ball forward. 3
5 Rich Another who was in and out without having a big impact on the contest. 5
6   Senior emergency.  
7 VFL Helped Casey build a solid eaely lead but drifted out a bit in the final term when the Bees made a charge.
8 VFL Okay on a wing and sweeping across half back. Had 20 possessions to be a handy contributor.
9 VFL Gave real drive at stages with 21 possessions and was good on the outside.
10   Senior emergency.  
11 VFL Okay without being at his best through midfield. Number steady, but not a massive infleunce.
12 VFL Steady contributor on the day. Won the ball well and generally made the right decision.
13 VFL Moved inside to have 14 clearances and used the ball diligently for the most part. Earned a recall.
14 WCE Had a quality night with 22 touches and one goal. Did well. 7
15 Syd In and out of the game at half forward and on a wing. Didn’t do enough to cement his place. 3
16 Carl Struggled for most of the day and fact he didn’t touch the ball in final term doesn’t bode well at selection. 4
17   Senior emergency.  
18 VFL Had an influence with his ability to feed the ball to the outside thanks to his contested work. Just needs to do it more constantly.
19 VFL Demons loved his contest to contest work and his efforts around the ball. Connected the team forward of centre. 25 disposals.
20 VFL Worked into the game to help drag Sandy over the line. 22 possessions.
21 VFL In a good patch of form and ready to make the step up when required. 29 possessions.
22 Bris Just the 12 touches and looked a bit off the pace on a wing. 3
23 VFL Quiet night after being crook for much of the week. Just eight possessions.

2016 Season

1   Played in Casey intra-club.  
2   Played in VFL trial against Box Hill.  
3 NM Not a big player but did some handy things. Had chance to be the hero but had mark spoilt. 5
4   Senior emergency.  
5 VFL Ball use wasn’t up to standard and couldn’t make any real impact.
6 VFL Superb in midfield with his use of the ball and cool head under pressure.
7 GCS Did some good things and booted a goal. 5
8 WB Chimed in and tried hard to create something even though didn’t always come off. 6
9 Bris Best game at AFL level at half back and on a wing. Used ball well and showed composure. 8
10 Port Again showed composure and clean skills when others didn’t. Developing very well. 7
11 Haw Started on Smith on wing. Was clean early but then drifted from the game a touch. 5
12 Coll Didn’t get into the game to any degree. Some of his handball sold teammates into trouble. 4
13 Syd Roamed half back and was in and out of the play. 4
15 Adel Creative with ball in hand and took the game on in the first half. One of the better Demons. 6
16 Frem Roamed the wing and half back line with a cool head and clean hands on a slippery night. 6
17   Senior emergency.  
18 WCE Contested work was a highlight. Won six clearances and was clean below knees. 6
19 GCS One of the few players on the ground to use the ball well and make right decisions. Going well. 7
20 Haw Ran himself ragged to be involved and iced a strong game with a goal in final term. 7
21 Port Laid seven tackles and had five clearances, playing his part in midfield rotations. 6
22 Carl Hasn’t made many errors all year, but packed them all into 120 minutes. A poor outing. 3
23 Geel Couldn’t get near it all day. Disappointing end to a pretty solid season. 3
