2017 Season

1    
2 NEAFL Good ball winner in the midfield mix and ran the game out fairly well.
3 NEAFL Good ball winner through the middle of the ground with 31 possessions – with most coming by hand.
4 NEAFL Battled hard in midfield to end with 25 possessions, but didn’t always use the ball as well as he'd like.
5   Good ball winner in first half then rested as a senior emergency.  
6 NM Strong at the contest and no shortage of courage, but decision making needs to improve to hold down a regular spot. 4
7   Shoulder.  
8   Shoulder.  
9   Shoulder.  
10   Shoulder.  
11 NEAFL Everything he touched seemed to end up in a score for the Suns. 31 possessions, six assists.
12 Haw Bulldozed way through the engine room for six tackles and 22 possessions. Getting better by the week as inside-mid. 6
13 Carl Handy over four quarters. Rotated through midfield and was hard at the footy. 5
14 StK Consistent toiler across four quarters who won clearances. 6
15 NM Pivotal role on limiting Higgins output, who he kept to just five kicks. 6
16 Syd Just fair in midfield. Needs to get hands on the ball more often. 5
17 NEAFL Would sneak into the best players. 29 touches were impactful.
18 WB 14 possessions in midfield and wasn’t able to impact the contest enough. 4
19 Rich Earned a late reprieve with Ablett's withdrawal and failed to make the most of it. Career at crossroads. 3
20 NEAFL Bye.
21 NEAFL Hard worker around the ball with 28 touches and had four score assists.
22 Ess Potentially fighting for his career in next game. Failing to live up to his potential. 2
23 NEAFL Outstanding in midfield with 40 possessions, seven clearances in Suns' win.

2016 Season

1 Ess Rotated through the midfield and used the footy well. 6
2 Frem Tough. His contested ball winning and tackling were features. 6
3 Carl Shadowed Cripps for most of the evening and stuck to the task. 7
4 Bris Picked up a third of his touches in last term. Too little too late. 4
5 NM Just OK without standing out. 5
6 Geel Midfielder had only four effective disposals forward of centre. Without support he struggled. 3
7 Melb Prepared to get in and under and was far from the worst. 5
8 GWS Hard worker in close and laid an impressive 11 tackles. 6
9 Adel Led the way in clearances and contested possessions. Having a good season. 8
10 WCE Didn’t get into the game until after half time. It was over by then. 4
11 Syd Relished the conditions but did not finish match due to knee injury. 6
12 Rich Former first-round draft pick never a factor. Two kicks, two clearances and two inside-50s. 2
14   Ill.  
15   Ill.  
16 NEAFL Dominant in midfield. 35 touches, eight clearances and six inside-50s.
17 WB Struggled to contribute in the midfield – needed to do more. 3
18 Frem OK in the midfield but failed to make the most of his disposals. 5
19 Melb Couldn’t get into the game at all. One clearance and two inside-50s. 2
20   Shoulder.  
21   Shoulder.  
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.  

2015 Season

1    
2 NEAFL Quiet game in midfield. Just 10 possessions.
3 NEAFL Worked overtime in middle to collect 25 possessions.
4 NEAFL Suns’ best in midfield with 29 possessions.
5 Bris Copped a hit on the shoulder and soldiered on. 3
6 Adel Given a football lesson in defence by Betts. 1
7 WCE Played deep on LeCras at times. A tough night. 3
8 Coll Looks far more comfortable when not in defence. 4
9 Haw Tackled hard but not a major input. 3
10 Syd Continued his development in defence and OK when in the midfield. 7
11 Frem Not as prolific as previous weeks, but developing well. 4
13 Carl Looked all at sea for the most part. Laid seven tackles but struggled. 3
14 NM Starting sub and didn't trouble the statisticians. 0
15 WB Used in defence and was OK in contests but needs to elevate game. 5
16 GWS Fairly impressive, did some good things. 5
17 Adel Pushed forward for a great goal in the third term brushing off Dangerfield. 7
18 WCE Spent some time on Priddis, and found the going tough. 4
19 Bris Even four-quarter effort. 7
20 Rich Tagged Cotchin and the way game went that was a futile task. 4
21 Ess Had a run-with role on Heppell, but still chased his own footy. 5
22 Port Applied himself to the tagging role on Boak and was great. 7
23 Syd Battled hard but knee injury hampered his efforts. Few possessions were telling. 4
