2017 Season

1    
2 NEAFL Rebounded well from defence, but also pushed up to drive the ball inside-50 four times.
3 NEAFL Shifted into midfield and looked at home. Found the ball well in close and used it smartly.
4 NEAFL Did most of his work in the back half with eight rebounds from 21 touches. Solid.
5   Ribs.  
6   Senior emergency.  
7 StK Inexperienced defender spent time on Membrey and was solid enough. Great experience and certainly didn’t look out of place. 4
8 Coll Lined up in back pocket but not much of a factor. Only five kicks. 2
9 NEAFL A driving force for the undermanned Giants. 25 possessions and eight inside 50s.
10 WCE Kicked one goal and laid five tackles. Promising. 5
11 Ess Went goalless, but was lively in attack and his movement at times was impressive. 5

13   Bye.  
14 Bris Only the eight disposals but at least it included a goal. 4
15   Finger.  
16   Finger.  
17   Finger.  
18 NEAFL Plays where needed. Starred in defence and was able to hit the scoreboard when moved forward.
19 NEAFL Started at halfback and then was moved into the midfield. Starred in that role with 24 disposals at 83.3 percent.
20 Melb Replaced Patton in line-up and was lively. Used as a spare into the wind and did it well. Tackled hard up front. 5
21 WB Rangy defender did his bit alongside more established stars. Limited stats but god experience. 3
22 WCE Utility was used in a variety of roles but little impact. 2
23    
QF Adel Got GWS’s first goal and played defensive forward role on Lever, before being thrown into back half. 4
SF WCE Defensive forward on McGovern and also did some ruckwork. Physicality improved as night wore on. 4
