2017 Season

4 Geel Played down back and was under fire all day. On end of worst umpiring decision in recent memory after a great tackle. 2
5 WCE Off half back and looked assured. Attacked the ball well and picked right times to get involved in transition. 6
6 StK Stationed at half back once again and did a few nice things but wasn’t a big factor. 5
7 Melb Youngster showed plenty in defence. Defended grimly and attacked when he could with 18 possessions. 6
8 Bris One of the rare quiet Hawks today. Only had five disposals. 3
9 Coll Did plenty of the heavy lifting in defence for 16 disposals. Shows promise. 5
10 Syd Didn’t waste a possession down back and is growing with each passing week. 6
11 Port Youngster will learn plenty from the hit-out but experience wasn’t a pleasant one. Zero influence on the game’s flow. 2
12 GCS Youngster struggled to get into the game. Had more tackles (seven) than kicks (six) which is never a great sign. 2
13   Bye.  
14 Adel Wasn’t having any of this is the best attack in league business, head over the ball at all times. 6
15 Coll Youngster used the ball well (18 of his 19 touches hit the target) and certainly didn’t look out of place. 6
16 GWS Almost had as many tackles as touches. 8 tackles and 9 disposals. Would like more of the footy though. 5
17 Geel Youngster did a couple of things but in the end was pretty quiet; 10 disposals. 3
18 Frem Controlled the small forwards and won the ball too. 6
19 Syd Left the game early due to concussion. 3
20 Rich Youngster showed his wares in defence but in the end struggled to have any impact; 11 possessions. 3
21 NM Gets to the right spots. Excellent opening quarter, but faded. 5
22 Carl Had his work cut with the dangerous Pickett but still collected 18 disposals. Penetrating by foot. 5
23 WB Played as small defender and played his role okay although Picken caused some troubles.. Got into some niggle at times. 5

2016 Season

1   Senior emergency.  
2   Played in VFL trial against Casey.  
3   Senior emergency.  
4 VFL Started back and did a good defensive job then switched forward.
5 VFL Battled to get into the game. Well held by the Lions.
6 VFL Moved up into the midfield and was impressive with his ball winning ability.
7 VFL Bye.
8 VFL Couldn’t get much going in front half. Just one goal.
9 VFL In and out of the game but lacked the required impact.
10 VFL Bye.
11 VFL Worked into the game after a slow start to play his role.
13 VFL Involved in a few scoring passages, but wasn’t a big factor overall.
14 VFL Had opportunities to impact the scoreboard, but could only manage 1.3.
15 VFL Bye.
16   Ill.  
17 VFL Chimed in with two goals, seven marks and some handy work.
18 VFL Didn’t have many chances, but took them when they came. Three goals.
19 Carl Rewarded with first game after Rioli was a late out. Will be better for the experience. 3
20 VFL Ball use was sloppy at times, but had five inside-50s on the day.
21 VFL Battled to have any real impact across half forward.
22 VFL Struggled to get into the game at any stage.
