2017 Season

1    
2   Leg.  
3    
4   Thumb.  
5   Thumb.  
6 VFL Excellent effort across half back in Casey's loss to Geelong. 20 possessions and six tackles.
7 Haw Tried hard but not enough pill to make Clarko squirm in his chair. Eight kicks, one inside-50. 3
8 Adel Provided great drive off half back particularly after Jayden Hunt left the ground injured. 6
9 NM Used in defence but was not a factor in any phase. Mustered three kicks for the day but did lay seven tackles. 3
10 GCS Did some nice things after main break, but wasn’t flash before the main break. 4
11   Bye.  
12 VFL Good game at half back in response to being dropped. Had 27 touches and read the play well.
13 VFL Did well again at half back and up into the middle. 28 touches and a couple of clearances.
14   Senior emergency.  
15 Syd Horrible at half back. Turned it over far too often for a ‘good’ kick. 2
16 Carl Hadn’t kicked a goal in 19 games coming in and had two by halftime. Did some handy things from 18 possessions. 6
17 Adel Minimal impact off half back despite handy enough numbers. 4
18 VFL Played a different role as an inside midfielder. Ability to win the contested ball really stood out.
19 VFL Brings a lot of intensity no matter what role he plays. Good game with 23 disposals.
20   Senior emergency.  
21 StK Had a few iffy moments, but used his left foot well at stages. 4
22 Bris Lacked speed on the outside and a bit of quality when he got the footy. Hard to see him holding his place. 3
23 VFL Very good early on, but drifted out a touch. Ended with 26 possessions at half back.

2016 Season

1   Played in Casey intra-club.  
2   Played in VFL trial against Box Hill.  
3 NM OK down back on debut. Didn’t make any glaring mistakes and defended fairly well. 5
4 Coll Great first half out of defence and theme continued in second. Looks a real player. 6
5 Rich Really steady game. Has a big engine and loves to use it. Bobbed up all over the field. 6
6 StK Solid game across half back. 5
7 GCS Daring and plenty of dash from defence. 7
8 WB Tried hard but never given space to break away and use ball to advantage from the back end. 4
9 Bris Pretty solid again in the back half and now looks like he feels he belongs at this level. 6
10 Port Got a bit of ball and provided some drive but not his most confident effort so far. 5
11 Haw Used left foot well and is a nice developing type at half back. Mixed and matched opponents. 6
12 Coll Quiet one from half back. Has to tidy up decision making with and without the ball. 4
13 Syd Followed Rose and led to the ball far too often. Not his best outing since debut. 4
15   Knee.  
16   Knee.  
17 StK Kicked it well enough in first term then copped head knock. Impact limited thereafter. 4
18 WCE Some good signs across half back. Showed intent. 5
19 GCS OK at times at half back but another who turned the ball over with poor execution. 5
20   Didn’t play for Casey.  
21 VFL Drifted across half back without much fuss. OK.
22 VFL Did some handy things but doesn’t appear likely to break back into senior team.
23 VFL Mopped up well across half-back with plenty of uncontested possessions.
