Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   A surprise winner of the 2013 Jack Dyer Medal. Progressed from a fringe player to one of the most valued members of the line-up due to his ability to take on big tasks and do the little things for his teammates. Kicking remains a question mark under pressure, but you cannot fault his effort and work-rate. Missed the Melbourne game due to groin soreness.

2014 NAB Cup:   Still a week away after a hamstring problem over summer.

2014 Season

Played for : Richmond

1   Hamstring.  
2 PM Good return from injury in midfield.
3 WB Hard-working third quarter in comeback, but disposal efficiency well down. 5
4 Coll Shifted to Pendlebury after the Pie was running hot. Slightly reeled him in. 5
5 Bris Prolific ball-winner and kept going all night. 7
6 Haw Started in middle on Burgoyne and was good in his 150th game. 6
7 Geel Went to Johnson after quarter time and won that battle. Key part of the comeback 7
9 Melb One of the best with 30 touches and a goal. In everything. 8
10 GWS Subbed out early with groin soreness. 1
11 Ess Competed hard and one of few Tigers to stand up early before fading. 6
12 VFL Bye.
13   Hip.  
14   Hip.  
15 VFL Good early on return but drifted out of the game in second half.
16 Bris Won plenty of ball but efficiency let him down again. Only half his disposals counted 5
17 Port Appeared hampered by a hip issue and didn’t have a big afternoon. 4
18   Hip.  
19   Hip.  
20   Hip.  
21 VFL Got through three quarters and is ready to return.
22 VFL 16 possessions and a goal. Looks a long way off it.
23   Suspended.  
EF   Retired.  

2013 Season

Played for : Richmond

1 Carl Rotated half forward/midfield and OK. Big numbers but kicking still a worry. 7
2 StK Went with Hayes at times. Battled but he lacks polish to hurt opponent. 4
3 WB Spent time on Cooney and battled hard. A brave competitor. 6
4 Coll Gave very little. His disposal and decision making not up to scratch in big games. 3
5 Frem Might be time for a stint in the VFL. Made more mistakes than Joan Collins. 3
6 Geel Ran with Selwood at times and worked hard despite shortcomings. 5
7 Port Got the ball inside 50 on five occasions playing on the wing. 6
8 Melb Got a lot of footy and handy but again ran at below 65% efficiency. 5
9 Ess Probably the Tigers’ best and never stopped trying. 7
10 WCE Shadowed Gaff/Masten and did a good job. Kicked a long freak bouncing goal. 7
12 Adel Shadowed Dangerfield and while beaten he kept offering something offensively. 6
13 WB Can be scrubby at times by foot but stuck to his task strongly. Kicked a freak goal late. 6
14 StK Strove very hard around the field. 6
15 NM Started on Swallow but hampered by an early ankle issue. Tried hard in losing cause. 5
16 GCS Huge task on Ablett and did it very well. Hurt the champ with two goals. 7
17 Frem Spent time on Mundy and Fyfe and did a decent job while winning his own ball. 6
18 Syd Tagged O’Keefe and although shaded, did well. 6
19 Haw Two goals in final term to help kill off the Hawks. Six clearances. 6
20 Bris A relentless work-rate meant he was unstoppable and crisp foot skills. 9
21 Carl Battled hard and laid a game high eight tackles. 7
22 GWS Kept Ward relatively quiet and found the ball well himself. 7
23 Ess Got the better of Zaharakis and continued his fine season with another two goals. 7
EF Carl Went to Murphy then to Judd as coach tried to plug holes. Never stopped trying. 6

2012 Season

Played for : Richmond

1 Carl Gave usual wholehearted effort. Shown up for pace a couple of times. 6
2 Coll Went to Shaw with a brief to negate his run. Succeeded fairly well. 5
3 Melb Still prone to make the odd mistake but still played a part – 21 disposals. 6
4 Geel Toiled away in the midfield for 14 disposals and a goal. Just. 5
5 WCE Battles hard but lacks any creativity in his game. Why didn’t he tag Kerr? 4
7 Syd Quiet game and committed some bad turnovers. 4
8 Ess Given key run with role on Stanton. Not much impact until late in game. 5
9 Haw You know things are going well when he’s kicking freak goals. Played a part. 5
10 StK At various stages had negating forward role on Gram and Goddard. 4
11 Frem Defensive on McPhee early then released into midfield and tried hard. 5
12 GWS Kicked one handy goal but disposal again well below where it has to be. 5
14 Adel Run with roles on Knights and Porplyzia and won his own footy. 7
17 NM Ok (7 inside-50s) but only two contested possessions and one clearance. 5
18 Carl Good start, but hurt in second quarter and subbed off in third. 6
19 Bris Solid output from the experienced utility. Showed his versatility. 6
20 WB OK at times but hardly a starring role. Why does he always go sideways? 4
21 Frem Didn’t use the ball well. 4
22 Ess Started in attack and did his bit. 5
23 Port Won some footy but he isn't the bloke you want winning it. Can’t kick. 4
