2017 Season

1   Back.  
2   Back.  
3   Back.  
4   Back.  
5 GWS Started full of run and aggression but petered out which was understandable. 4
6 Carl Struggling to impact the game until sustained injury in horrific landing after collision with Rowe. Taken to hospital. 1
7   Concussion.  
8 NEAFL Leg speed was too much for Canberra to handle. Six inside-50s and four goals in the win.
9 StK Mixed bag of brilliant bursts and inexplicable dropped marks. Pressure good at times. 5
10 Haw Started in attack, but shifted around in an effort to give the Swans some dive. Fair. 5
11   Bye.  
12 NEAFL Seven inside 50s and two goals and was too quick and talented for the opposition after a slow start.
13 Rich Helped spark team in final term after a quiet opening three quarters. Lively each time he goes near the ball. 5
14 Ess A few questionable efforts in first half, but then was the hero in dying second with one-handed mark, then after the siren goal. 5
15 Melb Took quick on the lead early on and had sticky hands. Six inside 50s. 5
16 GCS Career best 5 goals and was superb in attack, a night to remember 9
17 GWS Led hard up the ground early. Looked like he was done for the night with a hamstring injury, but in good news for Swans fans he returned. 5
18 StK Slowish start then lifted, but wasn't a major player. 4
19   Back.  
20 Geel Speedster jagged two goals but ended that game on the injured list. Might have been cramp? 5
21 Frem Managed to boot two goals in a reasonable outing. 5
22 Adel Had the better of Jake Kelly with two critical goals. 5
23 Carl Made the most of the Buddy scraps that came his way. Kicked 3 and applied enormous forward tackling pressure. 7
EF Ess Sent scare through camp when went off in second term but returned. Flitted in and out for two goals from five kicks. 5
SF Geel Friends called the fuzz at halftime to report a missing person. Absolutely horrific. 1

2016 Season

1   Hamstring.  
2   Hamstring.  
3   Hamstring.  
4   Hamstring.  
5   Hamstring.  
6 NEAFL Made his return from a hamstring injury and got through OK.
7 NEAFL Didn’t return after half time and appeared to be limping.
8 NEAFL Showed customary dash on occasions and had 14 possessions.
9 Haw Trademark breakaway pace generated two of his goals. 4
10 NM Minimal impact overall but kicked a ripper goal in final term. 4
11 GCS Did not get a lot of the footy, but was clean with it. Booted two goals. 7
12 GWS Quiet night in attack. Injured hamstring in third quarter and failed to return. 2
13 Melb Showed dash at times in good duel with Frost then went behind ball. OK. 5
15 WB Not a big night and didn’t figure prominently. 3
16 Geel Four inside-50s but no goals. Lively but pretty well held by Taylor. 4
17 Haw Two first-term goals and four for the night in his best game for the club. 8
18 Carl Good in patches up forward. Defensive pressure (eight tackles) was brilliant. 5
19 Frem Some promising signs. Just needs to get more of the ball. 5
20 Port Chimed in with two goals despite bing hampered by corkie to hip/buttock. Put on ice. 5
21 StK Long spells on bench but had some spectacular bursts 5
22 NM Lively in forward line and led hard up the ground. Seven marks, six inside-50s. 6
23 Rich Made it look easy in first half with 4.2. Spent most of last term resting on the bench. 6
QF GWS Wasteful at times with disposal and run down by Cameron in defining moment. 4
SF Adel First goal from 55m but hurt knee in second term and carted off. Terrible luck. 2
PF Geel No ill-effects of previous week’s injury. Important positive contributions. 7
GF WB Another Grand Final stinker. Two effective disposals, one goal. 2

2015 Season

1 Ess Didn’t make a big mark on the game. 4
2 Port Played predominantly up forward and rewarded with a goal. 5
3 GWS Teased but ultimately didn’t deliver. Got to find ways to stay involved for longer. 4
4 Frem Came on as the sub and gave the team some run. 3
5 WB Five inside-50s and a goal kept him involved in the contest. 6
6 Melb Seven disposals in each half. Ok but has played better games. 4
7 Geel Couple of runs but generally quiet. One goal and two inside-50s. 4
8 Haw First goal then struggled to get hand to ball and subbed out at final change. 3
9 Carl Two first-quarter goals and his speed a factor throughout. 5
10 GCS Floated across half forward and got involved at times. 4
11 NM Presented well at half forward early but drifted out of game and subbed out. 4
13 Rich Very good in opening 45 minutes with two goals. Vlaustin got on top later. 6

1 GWS Started OK but then wasn’t seen. 3
2 Coll Some good pressure skills early, but fumbled. Subbed out with sore leg. 4
3 Adel Came on as the sub and used his blistering speed to kick a fine goal. 3
4 NM Used as the sub again and unable to break the lines in his limited game time. 4

9 NEAFL Still struggling for form.
10 NEAFL Bye.
11 NEAFL Excellent run off half-back.

14 NEAFL Bye.
15 NEAFL Quite good until concussed late in second half.
16 WCE Late inclusion who struggled to make an impact. 3
17 Carl Starting off half-back, pace was critical in a big step forward for the youngster. 6
18 Haw Showed he is nearly over leg worries. Not big numbers but good down back. 6
19 Ess Determined to cement a spot in side and did OK. 5
20 Port Played his part in the win with two inside-50s and a cracking goal in last term. 4
21 StK Ran and worked hard. 6

QF Haw Apart from nice goal had very quiet night. 2
SF VFL Good early but wasn’t a massive factor up forward.
