Dream Team Profile

2014 Digest:   Injury riddled over the past few seasons, the strong-bodied utility has slipped down the depth chart and will have to work his way into the line-up via the VFL. Injured his knee in the intra-club last week and faces another short stint on the sidelines.

2014 NAB Cup:   Injured his knee in an intra-club match last month and is close to resuming in the VFL.

2013 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1 Port No real impact on the contest across half forward. 3
2 VFL Starred up forward with six goals. Great response to being dropped.
3 WCE Played as a defensive forward and did a reasonable job curtailing Hurn. 6
4 GWS Showed great courage at times and while stats not huge he had a presence. 5
5 Bris More involved this week at half forward. Attacked ball and man with vigour. 5
6 Carl Has a presence about his game. Needs to find more footy though. 5
7 GCS Couldn’t question courage but not enough ball to worry the Suns. 2
8 Rich Courage and commitment could not be questioned. Has to win more ball. 4
9 Frem Couldn’t get into the game and made some elementary mistakes. Confidence is shot. 2
10 Haw Subbed on in third term and grabbed eight touches. Did what he could. 2
11 Coll Sub. On third term but failed to provide the run required. 1
13 VFL Chipped in with a goal and started to get some touch back.
14 VFL Worked into the game to end with 19 possessions and two goals.
15 VFL Bye.

18 NM Kicked the opening goal but needs to do more as a defensive forward. 4
19 GWS Worked hard at half forward without hitting the scoreboard. 5
20 GCS Worked hard to apply defensive pressure up forward and kicked one goal. 4
21 Frem Continues to struggle at starvation corner. Needs to find a new role. 3
22 Adel Disappointing game from the South Australian lad. 2
23 WB Missed sitter of a goal from 25m directly in front after coming on as sub. 2

2012 Season

Played for : Melbourne

1 VFL Got another game under his belt after injury setback.
2 VFL Got through the game OK. Nearing a return.
3 Rich Might be headed back to VFL after a poor outing – nine disposals. 2
4 WB On at start of final quarter. Only a couple of touches. 1
5 StK Late inclusion added muscle to defence. Inflicted a bone jarring bump. 5
6 Geel Did a few good things down back then subbed off. Not the worst. 4
7 VFL Not his best outing but long kicking was handy.
9 Carl Didn’t get into game playing mostly up forward. Not where his career is at. 3
10 Ess Hard nut who blotted Davey out of the game. 5
11 Coll Threw himself in, including crude elbow into Fasolo’s kidneys. 4
14 Bris Competed hard but needs to find more of the ball to have an influence. 4
15 Rich Hardly sighted then knocked out by Morris in marking contest in third term. 3
18 VFL Solid, yet unspectacular game.
19 GCS Tough effort across half forward. Loves the physical side of the game. 6
20 StK Played as defensive forward on Fisher without great success. 4
21 GWS Started on the bench and had a quiet afternoon in Canberra. 3
22 Adel Battled hard all night but wasn’t prominent after quarter time. 3
23 Frem Aggressive but didn’t have enough of the ball. 4
