4 VFL Struggled to get involved throughout the day.
5 VFL 17 of his 20 possessions were contested – relished the battle in tight. Laid seven tackles too.
6 VFL Tackled hard, but wasn’t able to get his hands on the ball as a small forward.
7 VFL Booted a couple of goals and flew the flag when teammates were felled. Plays with good intensity.
8 VFL Tried hard but wasn’t able to consistently get his hands on the pill.
9 VFL Worked hard defensively, but didn’t get great deal of the footy.
10   Bye.  
11 VFL Better in second half. Tackled hard in the front area.
12 VFL Did okay in the front half with his pressure and workrate.
13 VFL Not massive numbers, but competed fiercely and won a few clearances.
14 VFL Played with a lot of energy in the front half and tackled hard.
15 VFL Competed hard in and around the contests in front half without hitting the scoreboard.
16 VFL Battled hard around the contests. Laid some good tackles and had 11 touches.
17 VFL Bye.
18 VFL One of his quieter games over the past six weeks. Struggled to get into the game and didn't apply his standard level of pressure.
19 VFL Most complete game he has played. Lots of pressure, applied tackles and did the grunt work inside.
20 VFL Won his fair share of footy with 24 touches, but unusually didn’t lay a tackle.
21 VFL Struggled to get into the game for long periods. Not his best.
22   Didn’t play for Casey.  
23 VFL In and out of the game, but was handy late when the game was up for grabs.
