2017 Season

1 Rich Battled hard all night but impact not huge. Four tackles and five clearances. 5
2 Melb Attached himself to Jordan Lewis’ back like a Kathmandu hiking back-pack. Limited his impact and won his own ball. 7
3 Ess Tagged Merrett who had 29 disposals but he worked hard himself. Kicked critical goal in final term. 7
4 GCS Spent time shadowing Hall and battled away, but wasn’t able to limit the Suns’ ball accumulation. 5
5 Port Laid five tackles and had three inside-50’s but couldn’t stop the hard bodied midfielders of the Power. 5
6 Syd Dour midfield type put in typical effort highlighted by nine tackles, six inside-50s and five clearances. 7
7 Coll Busy first term with nine disposals. Did his best to foil Pendlebury at stoppages (nine tackles) and came out on top. 7
8 StK Ran hard as always and left nothing in the tank. 6
9 Frem Good job following Brad Hill. Won 31 disposals of his own. 7
10 NM Lacked some polish but worked his backside off as usual and finished with 32 touches and seven tackles. 7
11   Bye.  
12 GWS Worked against Scully and did well in restricting the Giants’ ability to link and bring others into the game. 6
13 GCS Shut down Ablett's influence when moved to him halfway through first quarter. 8
14 Rich Spent time running with Dusty, but wasn’t overly effective. 4

4 WB Tagged Bontempelli at times and successful in that role. Five clearances. 6
5 Frem Found plenty of the footy and tackled well. 6

7 Coll Good around stoppages in first half opposed to Treloar and won plenty of own ball. 13 tackles too. 8
8 Port Started on Polec on a wing and was too loose early. Tightened up and ended up winning lots of ball. 6
9 NM No clear run-with task in midfield. Did some handy work but not a massive factor. 5
10 Geel Huge effort to tag Selwood out of game and grab 29 disposals himself. Nine tackles. 9
11 Bris Had the better of Rich and laid a game high 12 tackles. 8
12 StK Lined up on old foe Montagna and others and gave an honest account of himself. 6

20 StK Numbers look OK but bely true influence on the game. Not his best outing. 6
21 Bris Helped drag Carlton into the game when all seemed lost. Big effort. 8
22 Melb Did a good job on Viney around ground in first half and won his own ball. 7
23   Knee.

5 Coll Matched on Swan at start and went to Seedsman in second term. 4
6 Bris Did a fine job on Zorko in a win for team on a night there were few. 6

8 Geel Harassed and ultimately nullified Selwood. Laid six of team’s 34 tackles. 8
9 Syd Went to Hannebery and did a reasonable job given weight of ball against. 5
10 Adel Didn’t appear to have a hard tag all day and used space to find plenty of ball. 7
12 Port Won plenty of hard ball, four tackles and four clearances. Solid. 7
13 GCS Not prolific through midfield playing a defensive role. 5
14 WB Got lots of the ball and ran himself into the ground in midfield role. 7

20 Bris Another who had a below par game. 4
21 Melb Pressure and work-rate first class. Laid seven tackles and three inside-50s. 7
22 GWS Carlton’s best in midfield and was still competing hard when game was gone. 7
23 Haw One of his better games this year. 31 touches in midfield role. 7

1 Port Hard worker in tight early and snagged a couple of nice goals. Quiet end. 6
2 Rich High work ethic. Hard tackler and had a solid game. 6
3 Ess Shadowed a variety of Bombers without a lot of success. No impact himself. 4
4 Melb Work-rate first class and at least looked interested in taking the opponent on. 6
5 WB Lined up on Libba and held his own. Hurt knee when crashed into post. 6

21 Rich Outpointed Cotchin and ran his backside into the ground. 7
22 Ess Had some big moments against Stanton and could hold his head high. 7
