2014 Digest:   Built on his 2012 return to regular senior selection and his grunt and consistency in midfield was a vital plank of the Blues’ central battery. Has worked strongly with no hiccups in pre-season.

2014 NAB Cup:   Injured his leg in first quarter of practice game and looked in real trouble when he went off.

2014 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Port Prominent in first quarter in middle but hardly sighted in second half. 5
2 Rich Very quiet and subbed off in third term. 3
3 VFL Struggled after being dropped from the senior team.
4 VFL Named best for the Blues with plenty of touches.
5 VFL Strong game in the midfield. Kept working hard to win the ball.
6 WCE Superb all night. Had 32 touches and won nine clearances. Outstanding. 8
7 Coll Toiled honestly in first half then quiet. Delivery down in quality. 5
8 StK First half (18 disposals) helped set team up for victory. Quieter second half. 6
10 Adel Ran hard and linked well around the ground – 12 contested possessions. 7
11 Bris Started slowly but then picked up considerably. 6
12 Geel Helped work over Selwood and laid five tackles, had four clearances and a goal. 6
13 Haw Handy with four inside-50s and 10 contested possessions. 6
14 GWS Five marks, four clearances and two goals, the veteran played his part. 6
15 Coll Fumbled at key moments and failed to find enough footy. One inside-50. 4
16 StK Matched on Billings at start. Then in midfield and did well. 6
17 Syd Tried and failed to keep tabs on Parker forward and through the midfield. 5
18   Hip.  
19 Frem Sub. Why a one-paced accumulator was sub is anyone’s guess. On late. 1
20 GCS Bobbed up with a last-quarter goal but didn’t find a lot of it. 5
21   Calf.  
22   Calf.  
23 Ess Leading disposal winner. Most likely earned himself another one-year deal. 7

10 GWS Picked up handy numbers and ran hard throughout. 6
11 Ess Head down and hard running game but quietened at end. 5
