Dream Team Profile

2015 Digest:   Yet to really hit the heights shown at Hawthorn so far and troubled by calf and hamstring issues at stages last year. This looms as a make-or-break year for a player recruited for his penetrating kicking.

2015 NAB Cup:   Still a week or two away from resuming after a hamstring setback.

2014 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 Frem Good start given his injury history. Able to use his left foot at times but not often enough for Pies. 6
2 Syd Had some excellent moments as he tries to establish himself in the team. 6
3 Geel Four inside-50s and work-rate handy but no goals and no score assists. 6
4 Rich Provided the run and drive the club was hoping for when he was recruited. 7
5 NM Able to use his left foot to provide six inside-50s. Becoming a weapon. 6
6 Ess Going great guns until a severe corkie ended his day in third term. 5
7   Calf.  
8   Calf.  
9 Adel Used at half back, started like a rocket but less influential as game wore on. 4
10 WCE Sub. On early to replace Brown and got better as game wore on at half back. 5
11 StK Slowish start but then showed the incisive delivery he was recruited for. 6
12 Melb Had it 17 times in first-half before fading slightly but still among the best. 7
13 WB Wasn’t given the space he had last week. Finished with 16 touches. 5
14 Haw Important link man against his old side. 7
15 Carl Six inside-50s and six rebound 50s indicative of his work. Two goals. 7
16 GCS Two lovely goals but will only remember that dropped mark late in match. 6
17 Ess Apart from long goal had a shocker in first half. Subbed off in third term. 3
18 Adel Horror night. Unable to get into the game in any position the coach put him. 3
19 VFL Bounced back to form with 36 touches and a goal.
20 WCE Sub. On early third term to replace Dywer but couldn’t influence flow of game. 2
21 Bris Not the worst with team-high six inside-50s and a goal. 6

23   Hamstring.

3 Adel On McKay at start. Did a few things early. 4
4 WCE Struggled to find the ball but hurt Shuey with a big bump. 4
5 VFL One of the Hawks better movers. Used ball well.
6 VFL The Hawks best. Used ball well and ran hard all day.
7 Melb Nice late goal. Took a knock to knee late in game. 5
8 Frem Excelled in milestone game which was a boon to side. 7
9 Rich Had 11 inside 50s last week; this week he had only 12 possessions. 3
10 NM Kicked two good goals and used the ball well. Getting back to his best form. 6
11 Port His run and carry and long kicking was damaging. 5
12 Bris OK without starring. 5
14 Carl Sliced through the lines and should have had a couple of goals by half time. 5
15 GWS Could you almost say this was his best game since the 2008 Grand Final. 8
16 WB Team-high nine inside-50s kept the pressure on the Bulldogs. 7
17 Coll One of few Hawks who struggled to get into the game to any great degree. 4
18 Ess Damaging in first half then influence tapered off. 6
19 Geel Left foot hurt the Cats at times and particularly good in final term. 7
20 Port Used the ball well for most of the day. 24 touches is a good return. 7
21 GCS Opened well and after a lull in second term kicked again. 6
22 Syd Ran hard to offer up six inside-50s. Didn’t star but played a role. 6
23 WCE Found space off a wing and when he got it a teammate got on end of it. 7
PF Adel Again showed his value in MCG finals. 6
GF Syd Looked threatening at times off wing but had barren patches. 5
