2017 Season

1 Ess Unsighted for long periods after early knock and wasn't his normal self. 3
2 Adel Early goal was only highlight of a day in which he struggled to find his feet. Four tackles and five inside-50s. 3
3 GCS Looked dangerous when the ball was in his vicinity. The ball was not there much though. 4
4 Geel Three effective disposals in first half and not much better after half time. Is he victim of team around him or just out of form? 3
5 WCE Started in centre square and gave amazing value for his possessions. Not back to his absolute best, but not far off. 7
6   Hip.  
7 Melb Started brightly then faded as game dragged on. Didn’t kick a goal and just four inside-50s. 5
8 Bris Was moved into the midfield in the third quarter and was dangerous. Injured left knee though and sat out final term. 6

2016 Season

1 Geel Just four touches in the first half. Went one-handed a few times but OK in fightback. 5
2 WCE Used forward and in centre bounce. Backed up Norm Smith display with four classy goals. 8
3 WB A typical 11 touch, three goal pearler from the champ. His finishing was clinical. 7
4 StK Kept extremely quiet for much of the day by Geary. Laid five tackles. 3
5 Adel Every action oozed brilliance be it tackling, marking or soccered goals. 7
6 GWS Hardly sighted in the first half when game was hot. He’ll bounce back. 4
7 Rich Made the most of every disposal with bursts of brilliance. 7
8   Personal leave.  
9 Syd Barely had a sniff in first half and swung into middle in third term and tried to lift. 3
10 Bris Superb defensive pressure up forward with eight tackles and was rewarded with five goals. 7
11 Melb Fumbled a few times and wasn’t at his best but tackling in final term was superb. 5
13 NM In such a big game his brilliant efforts were pure gold dust. 7
14   Personal leave.  
16 Port Antagonised the opposition with toughness and inspired his teammates with skill. 8

19   Quad.  
20 Melb Hawk’s best. Took a screamer, kicked four goals and laid 12 tackles. 9
21 NM Pretty well held but still found a way to kick three goals. 6
22 WCE Took a long time to get involved. There was no Cyril magic. 4
23 Coll Played in bursts for three goals and one screamer. Dangerous when near it. 7
QF Geel Guthrie started on him. Really came into it in second quarter. 6

4 Port Lively up forward, had a great tussle with Pittard. 5
5 NM Lively effort with some special touches and knock ons. 6
6 GWS Battled hard but failed to produce his best up forward and in the middle. 4
7 Melb Allowed to get into game early due to slack marking. Did well. 7
8 Syd Smith on his hammer but lively forward of centre. Two goals. 7
9 GCS Quiet overall. Subbed off at last change for a rest. 4
