Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   Veteran lining up for what could be his last season with his contract expiring at season’s end. Mixed his performances last year and type of player who needs the weekly grind of playing to produce his best. Done everything right over summer (when has he not?) to be primed for Round 1. One veteran who might benefit from a little extra game time in the NAB Cup.

2013 NAB Cup:   Veteran has negotiated pre-season and has no excuses. Might prove a few wrong.

2013 Season

Played for : Geelong

1 VFL Strong second half performer in win over Williamstown.
2 NM Took time to find temp but was superb with nine disposals in final term. 6
3 Carl Used off half back and worked into game. Still finding his touch but OK. 5
4 Syd Shadowed Kennedy and won that battle. Best game for the season. 7
5 WB Worked into the game to grab 10 contested poss. Getting back near his best. 7
6 Rich Stout again across half back/midfield, highlighted by four inside-50s. 7
7   Knee.  
8 Coll Pretty solid although on Pendlebury for periods early – 14 contested poss. 7
9 Port Did enough playing midfield but stats not huge– eight cont poss. 5
10 GCS One of few Cats to contribute stoutly over four quarters. Finding form. 8
11 GWS Won 11 contested possessions and steady all day playing midfeld/defence. 6
13 Bris Battled hard but only six kicks. Did he call for the ball from Simpson late? 6
14 Frem Led team in tackles (10), won 14 contested poss and kicked two goals. Tough effort. 7
15 Haw Won plenty of hard ball (13 cont poss) before getting knocked out late. 6
16   Concussion.  
17 Adel Eight clearances, four tackles and 19 cont poss to be among best. 7
18 StK Stats not huge but chimed in when required, particularly in defensive pursuits. 5
19 NM Battled away but only six kicks and three inside-50s. Didn’t hurt Roos. 5
20 Port Won 12 cont poss, had seven inside-50s and four clearances. Tough game. 8
21 WCE Tough and relentless and found a bit of it in space – four clearances. 7
22 Syd Laid a team-high 10 tackles and had five inside-50s, three clearances. 6
23 Bris Subbed on in third term and provided grunt. 3
QF Frem Apart from second term he was handy. Went to Fyfe after half time and OK on him. 6
SF Port Workrate was solid throughout in another even effort – seven inside-50s. 6
PF Haw Battled hard in what might have been final game for one of the club’s true warriors. 6

2012 Season

Played for : Geelong

1 Frem Not his best effort but did what he could playing on-ball/half back. 6
2 Haw Battled all match to grab 24 disposals (13 contested) and five inside 50s. 7
3 NM Radar and decision-making radar was well off all day. Not a great game. 4
4 Rich Used as second ruckman at times. Not his best game but kept battling. 5
5 Bris Threw his hard body around at contests and contributed something. 7
6 Melb Best game of year thus far. Won a team high 10 clearances. 8
7 Adel Battled hard but was swamped by hungry Crow midfield. 5
8 Coll Part of rotation on Pendlebury but he got away. Won nine hard-ball gets. 6
9 WB Team-high seven clearances and three score assists to be a factor all night. 7
11 Carl Hit something of a minor form slump. Efficiency and touch has deserted him. 4
13 Syd Lacked any real impact despite workrate being good – six tackles, 5 inside-50s. 5
14 Port Workrate good but really struggling. Can’t impact the game at the moment. 5
15 GCS Confidence appears shot – the once-sure-handed Cat is shaky with the footy. 4
16 Coll Confidence is well down despite OK numbers. To his credit played well late. 4
17 Ess Showed true colours with a brilliant display under pressure. Seven clearances. 8
18 Adel Best afield in opening half until injured hamstring just before main break. 4
21 StK After two weeks out he looked rusty; subbed out at three-quarter time. 3
22 WB Looked rusty early but steadily worked into game after half time – two goals. 6
23 Syd Laid 13 tackles, had seven clearances and 16 contested possessions. 8
EF Frem Up and down year ended with a downer. Tried hard but limited impact. 5
