2014 Season

1 WB Horrible mistake early cost a goal but after that he was superb across half back. 7
2 Melb Had Howe in his back pocket and even ran off him to kick a goal. 7
3 StK Went to Riewoldt late and was only defender who could stay with the Saint. 6
4 Geel Battled Hawkins and did OK to keep him to three given Cats had 62 inside-50s. 5
5 Port Won plenty of ball in defence despite standing Schulz. Port man kicked two though. 6
6 Carl Solid in defence rotating between the Blues’ talls. 6
7 Frem Was good on Pavlich keeping him scoreless. 7
8 GWS Kept Patton quite then the Giant was switched to defence. 6
10 WAFL Did the business on Cloke all night and tried to provide some run. 8
11 NM Good job down back on Petrie. 6

13 GCS Took 14 marks in defence to steady the ship. 7
14 StK Played on Riewoldt and did a satisfactory job against a restricted Saints’ skipper. 5
15 Frem Got the better of Pavlich and was strong down back all afternoon. 7
16 Syd Did everything in the rules (and sometimes out) to keep Franklin under wraps. 6
17 Bris Good first half (nine touches) and then faded (four after half-time). 5
18 Rich Had the better of Riewoldt but conditions did suit defenders. Moved well. 6
19 Adel Great tussle with Walker despite conceding four goals. 5
20 Coll Great job on Cloke. Clearly won that battle. 7
21 Ess Went to Daniher and was tight as usual. 6
22 Melb Intercepted well down back and gave drive when allowed time to run. 6
23 GCS Lynch caused issues in the air early but as team got on to so did he. 5

2013 Season

1 Frem Did a good job on Pavlich until a hamstring strain ended his night. 6
2   Hamstring.  
3   Hamstring.  
4 Carl Just plodded in defence and is yet to find anything close to his best. 3
5 Port Kept Schulz goalless and was steady all evening. 7
6 WB Most of the time he was on Jones. Unobtrusive. 5
7 Bris Dominated the contest with Brown. Shut down Brisbane’s avenue to goal. 8
8 NM Big job on Petrie and kept the big fella under wraps for most of the night. 7
9 GWS Had his moments in an entertaining battle with Cameron. 5
10 Rich On Riewoldt who was in trouble once he started to move in second term. 2
11 StK Solid on Riewoldt and then Maister. Bolted down ground to kick winning goal. 5

15 Adel Kept Jenkins to one goal and saved the Eagles many times in defence. 7
16 Frem Had a good duel with Pavlich and overall was on top. 6

19 GCS Solid worker down back and ventured forward for a goal. 6
20 Ess Sturdy effort down back and relishing an injury-free run for once. 6
21 Geel Did a sound job on Podsiadly given the weight of ball. Among best. 7

2012 Season

1 WB Had Jones covered and was steady. Not much offensively. 6
2 Melb Had his hands full with Mitch Clark who kicked five goals. 4
3 GWS Blanketed Folau but the ball wasn’t kicked in their direction often. 5
4 Haw Strong game on Franklin. But lucky the Hawk was off target with 1.6. 7
6 NM A good defensive game. Spoilt strongly. 6
7 Ess Outgunned by tall resting forwards 3
8 StK Lost his battle with Riewoldt but still won some key one-on-ones. 5
9 Frem Did his job. Would have liked barely having the ball close to Freo’s goal. 6
10 Bris Played well in patches. 5
12 Carl Troubled by Henderson at some stages but held his own. 5
13 Coll Started on Cloke and torched in second term. 3
14 GCS Had little trouble. The Suns forwards never threatened. 6
15 NM Not an eye catcher but Petrie didn’t shine so has to be rated effective. 6
16 Syd Reid kicked three goals and took the points. 5

EF NM Side so in control he kicked first goal of his career. Didn’t have much to do. 4
SF Coll Had the major job on Cloke and threw everything at the big fellow. 7
