6 Rich Has eased back in the side with aplomb, won eight clearances and laid eight tackles. 7
7 NM Slow start and ball use wasn’t up to scratch in early exchanges. Got better, but will be disappointed with his day. 5

15 Carl Big last term when he put his body on the line, needs to make better decisions under pressure. 7
16 WB Not finding as much footy as his brother but equally damaging with the footy in hand. 7
17 Melb Head to head with Oliver and honors were even. Won the ball well and played his part. 7

20 Port Fractured cheekbone one week, nine clearances and five inside-50’s and a goal this week. Tough as nails. 8
21 Ess Was once again a valuable force in tandem with his brother. 6
22 Syd His two misses on goal proved costly in the final outcome, was effective in the midfield. 7
23 WCE Won a massive 43 possessions and 10 clearances. Vital game. 8
