2017 Season

3   Senior emergency.  
4 VFL Skippered VFL side and looked a class above at times playing through midfield and forward.
5 VFL Did well in the back half with 24 possessions and five tackes. A senior call-up wouldn’t surprise.
6 Coll First game for the season. Had Fasolo and from that perspective did well given one of Pies’ goals came when he was off ground. 6
7 GCS Certainly held his own across half back. Tried to attack when he could and used the ball well. 6
8 Ess Started well then effort faded but his leg speed is a must to retain in the side. Ended with nine effective disposals. 5
9 WB Spent first half in defence and played minor role then swung forward in third without impact. Couple of highlights. 4
10 Port Had job on Robbie Gray who kicked all three goals while he was off the ground. Good effort in many one-on-ones. 5
11   Ankle.  
12   Ankle.  
13 WCE Battled LeCras (no goals, six kicks) but didn’t offer much defensively; 5 possessions for the night. 3
14 Frem Defended grimly, particular in final term when he won a number of one-on-ones. 6
15 GWS Great again opposed mainly to Smith. Really building as the season drags on; 12 disposals and three tackles. 6
16 Bris Nothing flash but subdued Bewick while also being a link man out of defence. 6
17 Haw Took a variety of opponents and did well to nullify them. Won a few key one-on-ones. 5
18 Adel One of the Cats’ best. Defended well with intercept marks and was able to nullify Betts when opposed to him. Good effort. 7
19 Carl Steady again from the back half. Getting better each and every week as a rebounding defender; 13 disposals. 6
20 Syd Spent time on Heeney and had him covered. Battled hard but limited possessions given side under siege. 4
21 Rich Solid as a rock on a number of the tigers dangerous small forwards. Calm under pressure. Having a terrific season. 7
22 Coll Matched Elliott for most of the day and claimed his scalp in another fine effort from emerging player. Kicked a goal. 7
23 GWS Great battle with Greene who kicked two goals in first half then was kept to one after half time. 6
QF Rich Looked a little nervous throughout. Will get better from the experience but will need to lift. 2
SF Syd Bounced back from last week’s shocker like a rubber man on a trampoline. Gave great drive and defended well. 6
PF Adel Had the task on Betts and stuck to it ok but did make some mistakes. Got two-year deal, which was good. 4

6 GCS Did well and importantly got involved in the offensive transition when he could. No mistakes. 5
7 VFL Run and rebound was superb. Six rebound 50s to go with plenty of touches.
8 Adel Absorbing battle with Betts. Made a few mistakes but whacked away. 5
