Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Playing on a one-year deal that came on the back of a largely disappointing 2013 campaign that netted 13 goals from 16 games. At his best is a class half forward capable of turning matches but it’s been mid 2012 since we’ve seen it.

2014 NAB Cup:   Fact he’s played all three games is a huge positive for the injury prone forward. Looks to be working up the ground more.

2012 Season

Played for : Adelaide

1 GCS Kicked just the one goal but won plenty of contested ball. 4
2 WB Spent much of the game running through the midfield. 6
3 Haw Only seen sporadically before half time and didn’t have big day. 4
4 GWS Despite knocking out Petrenko kicked two great goals in the first term. 6
6 Syd Always plays well against the Swans and this was no exception. 6
7 Geel Did enough but efficiency down a little and didn’t hit the scoreboard. 5
8 Carl Did enough but hasn’t yet recaptured his best. One goal but no inside 50s. 6
9 Coll Playing more in the midfield these days and was useful. 5
10 Frem Had 18 disposals but wasn’t effective. 4
12 StK Three goals in second term set the tone and had the better of Clarke overall. 6
13 NM Beavered away in attack but had no great input after half time. 4
14 Rich Great performance in his 100th game and deserved the win. 8
15 Port Not as influential as his performance in his 100th game last week. 4
16 GWS Capped an excellent six-week span with a season-high four goals. 7
17 WCE Kicked three goals, should have had four but hit the post. 7
18 Geel Shaped as the match-winner at one point with two goals. Dangerous all day. 7
19 Ess Subbed out with a shoulder injury but not too serious at this stage. 3
22 Melb Given more time in the midfield and always looked dangerous going forward. 7
23 GCS Kicked one goal and set up a further three goals. 8
QF Syd Couldn’t get a foothold in the game. 3
SF Frem Active in attack and also covered ground to cover in defence. Clean hands. 7
PF Haw Murphy his match but got off the chain enough to be hugely damaging. 8
