4 VFL Good ball winner in midfield. Another young Roo who looks to have benefitted from senior experience.
5 VFL Worked hard to try to drive the Tigers forward with five inside-50s. Far from the worst.
6 VFL Good outing with 22 possessions, 10 tackles and five clearances in win over Essendon.
7 VFL Attacked the ball strongly in midfield and won his fair share of the footy.
8   Senior emergency.  
9   Senior emergency.  
10   Bye.  
11 VFL Applied good pressure on Tiger ball carriers and had a hand in a few scores.
12   Bye.  
13 StK Kid was given big role to tag Jack Steven, but did a spirited job and showed plenty. One to watch. 6
14 WB Youngster did a couple of handy things but for the most part didn’t impact flow of the contest. Only had four effective touches. 2
15 GCS Spent plenty of time minding Suns key midfielders (Lyons) and stuck to the task. 6
16 Frem Sent to Brad Bill after main break to try to curb his impact. Stuck to the task. 5
17 Port Six tackles and two inside-50’s were his game highlights. 4
18 Ess Career high 7 marks from 14 possessions. Used it well too. Getting better every week. 4
19 Melb Went to Garlett. Copped a knock in first term but came back on. Had trouble with Jeffy. 4
20 Coll Kid had a crack all night and can be proud of his effort. Mainly played in defence but seemed to appear in all areas at times. 6
21 Haw Big goal right on ¾ time kept the Roos in it, but struggled via foot. Learning and should be persisted with. 3
22 StK Worked hard and strongly as he did in first clash with Saints. 6
23 Bris Wasn’t a major factor. 3
