Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   The former skipper battled hamstring issues throughout 2013 but remains a vital part of the line-up having moved to defence in the past two seasons. Had a good pre-season compared with last year and will be ready in Round 1.

2014 NAB Cup:   Solid start to what could be his final season. Doing everything expected of him.

2012 Season

Played for : Port Adelaide

1 StK Led from the front as always. Almost very costly turnover at the end. 6
2 Ess Grabbed 10 disposals in first half and ended with 21. Gave his all as usual. 7
3 Syd 26 Disposals including ten clearances, typical captain’s performance. 7
4 Coll Ran with Swan at times but found it tough; 23 disposals, eight tackles. 5
5 Adel Quiet game by the Port skipper with only 12 possessions. 4
6 Rich Nullified Trent Cotchin and still found plenty of the footy. 7
7 Frem Had 10 contested possessions among 20 disposals. 6
8 NM Twice kicked out of bounds on the full with his non-preferred left foot. 6
9 GCS Good contributor around the contests. Lead from the front. 7
10 Carl Not one of the captain’s best games but never gives up trying. 5
11 Haw Not in career best form at the moment. 3
12 WB Had to go to Cooney who was getting away and that took him out of midfield. 5
17 Melb Big start to the game and a constant force in the middle. 7
18 Frem One of the few Port players who played well in the first half. 7
19 GWS Matthew Primus lost his job, but Cassisi’s leadership was also left wanting. 3
20 Haw Not a great 200th game to remember. Struggled to make a real impact. 4
21 WCE Worked tirelessly as usual with little reward. 6
22 Bris Implored his teammates to get over the line but couldn’t drag them over it. 6
23 Rich Tagged Cotchin and OK early then got torched. Kept battling. 5
