17 WAFL A class above. Goal kicking radar is warming up and is clearly all his teammates are behind him in his comeback.

20 WAFL Bye.
21 WAFL Looked sharp with 14 touches and two goals. Might be close to Freo debut.

2015 Season

Played for : Gold Coast

1 Melb Weight of possessions belies his influence, which was negligible. 5
2 StK Good early when others weren’t. Kept going. 6
3 Geel Roamed around for eight inside-50s and 13 contested possessions. 7
4 GWS In and out of the game but was kept close by GWS opponents. 5
5 Bris Responded to critics with a stunning performance. Ran hard all night. 8
6 NEAFL Responded to club suspension in style. 40 possessions.
7 WCE Tried hard but 13 of his 20 kicks missed the target. At least he got the ball though. 6
8 Coll Drifted in and out of game. Needs to be more desperate defensively. 4
9 Haw Adequate game without being influential. 4
10   Calf.  
11   Calf.  
12   Calf.  
13 Carl Among the best. Lacked support but class stood out at times. 7
14   Rested.  
15   Suspended.  
16 NEAFL A one-man band for the Suns. 37 touches, one goal.
17 Adel Won a game high 38 possessions, and has repaid the faith of his coach. 8
18 WCE Backed up previous week’s efforts with another big performance. 7
19 Bris Did his best work early. 6
20 Rich Stats suggests he was OK but reality was he rarely hurt the Tigers. 5
21 Ess Not his silky best, but booted three goals. 6
22 Port Did some nice things but not really a standout. 5
23   Calf.  

2014 Season

3   Calf.  
4   Calf.  
5   Calf.  
6 NEAFL Looked a class above. Found plenty of the ball and used it well.
7 NM Back in the team and back to his best. Looks extremely fit and was dangerous all day. 7
9 StK One of the catalysts to the flying start and bagged three goals. 6
10 WB Spent most of his time in attack and was lively at ground level. 6
11   Calf.  
12 Syd Roamed up the ground from half forward but was wasteful in front of goal. 6
13 WCE Big last quarter showing his pace as team surged. Brilliant goal 6
14 Geel Six goals from a midfielder (he played forward a lot) is pretty much unheard of. 9
15 Haw Comparatively quiet for him. 5
16 Coll Showed maturity by really stepping up when Ablett went off. 8
17 WB Threatened to cut loose at times but wasn’t able to get into it as he’d like. 5
18 Bris Butchered the footy and failed to step up when his team needed it most. 3
19 StK Slow start and was held til half time but had much better final half. 5
20 Carl Worked into game after a quiet start. Found plenty of the pill especially late. 7
21 Port Roamed up into midfield from half forward and was easily the Suns best. 7
22 Ess Won plenty of ball but just one inside-50, no goals. Did grab six clearances. 6
23 WCE Second-term goal oozed class but flitted in and out. Three inside-50s. 6

4   Hamstring.  
5   Hamstring.

11   Hamstring.

18 Carl Kicked a ripping goal in third quarter but appeared to be a bit off the boil. 4
19 WCE Brilliant footballer who is improving all the time. 7

21 Port The Suns’ best player with three goals and four inside 50s. 8

7 GWS His ability to pick the ball up off the ground at speed is a treat to watch. 7

10 Coll Did some stylish things and after Ablett was the next best; 11 contested poss. 7

12 NM Had a huge second half to bring the Suns right back into it. 7
