2017 Season

1 NM Six inside-50s to go with 31 touches. Showed customary burst and power a few times. 7
2 StK Produced when his team needed him with 30 disposals, 10 tackles and two goals. 8
3 Rich Had a very productive game with 30 disposals, but let himself down with his disposal. Has to improve by foot to go up a level. 7
4 Syd The best of the Eagles’ mids in opening exchanges and continued that form throughout the night. Super influential. 8
5 Haw Didn’t always hit the target but had 33 touches and kicked two goals. Showed his teammates how to play anywhere, anytime. 8
6 Frem Tagged early. But got amongst the action late and had 28 disposals and four goal assists. 6
7 Port Big game in the engine room with six tackles, four clearances and six rebound-50’s. 6
8 WB Laid 10 tackles and had 20 possessions. Not as dominant as previous weeks. 7
9 Ess Made some errors and had a costly fumble that led to a Daniher goal. Had better days. 5
10   Calf.  
11 GCS Fantastic around the clearances and also managed to hit the scoreboard. 7
12   Bye.  
13 Geel Huge game. Led from the front, won the ball, was dangerous at stoppages and laid seven tackles. Complete game. 8
14 Melb Collected 20 disposals and six clearances. 6
15 WB Unable to find a lot of clear space, but some desperate defensive efforts including 10 tackles. 7
16 Port Disappeared in the third term. A prominent player at clearances though. 6
17 Frem Good in tight. Not dominant but won some key contests. 6
18 Coll Picked it up in the second half. Seemed to get a hit in the knee late in the contest. Solid. 7
19 Bris Carried an injury during the game. Still had 27 touches. 7
20 StK Dangerous in first half then needed attention for injury and was restricted. 5
21 Carl Had a big final term which played a role in the team winning. 7
22 GWS Eagles could have used his explosiveness out of the middle late. Didn’t really step up when needed. 6
23 Adel Never stopped having a crack. Had 28 disposals and kicked one goal. Stepped up. 7
EF Port Very good all night around the footy, then became the hero after drawing a free kick and kicking goal after extra-time siren. 8
SF GWS Last week’s hero, but not at his best. Tackled hard and did some good things. You’d hope he didn’t have to pay for that haircut. 6

2016 Season

1 Bris A beneficiary of Naitanui’s ruck work. Had lots of the ball. 7
2 Haw Kept legs ticking over and never threw in the towel. One of the few to break even. 6

4 Rich Quality midfield game with two goals and 22 disposals. Great at clearances. 7
5 Syd Terrific in contested pack situations for four quarters. 8
6 Coll Loved working with Naitanui. The forwards got on the end of his supply. 8

8 StK In cracking form and St Kilda had no answer to non-stop running. 8
9 Port Typical display, six clearances, six inside-50s and a goal. 7

12 Adel Won plenty of contested ball. Kept fighting. 6
13 Bris Started slowly but wound up after half time to have a direct influence on outcome. 7
15 Ess Won 11 clearances despite not having Naitanui to help him. 8
16 NM West Coast’s best player. Won the vital contests. 8
17 Carl Looked attacking when he went near the ball. Contribution even throughout. 7

2015 Season

10 NM Eight clearances and 15 contested possessions helped keep the wheels turning. 7
11 Ess Well held in the first half. Enjoyed more freedom from there. 6
12 Rich Appeared to be going with Edwards early. Solid 6
14 Melb Broke away from Viney at crucial times to play his part. 6
15 Adel His combination with Naitanui is worth going to the footy for. 7
16 Coll Subdued by his standards, but chipped in. 4
17 Syd Hard running was a feature of his play. Good in all phases of the game. 6
18 GCS Got plenty of the footy and eight clearances. 7
19 Haw Fought hard, kicked a goal and set up some others. 7

11 NM Lack of impact on the game was disappointing. 3

15 Frem Tried hard to lift his side despite Crowley tag, but wasn’t his best outing. 5
16 Syd Had 24 touches and was good at times, but hasn’t reached heights expected. 6
