2017 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1 Adel Great opportunist goal in the third term to keep the Giants in it at that stage. 4
2 NEAFL Won the ball at will in midfield and pushed forward for a goal.
3 NEAFL Big ball winner in midfield with 36 touches and laid six tackles. Kicked a goal too.
4 Port Had a bit of the ball in a midfield and forward role, but didn’t lock down a spot moving forward. 4
5 Syd Always hard at it and while not the flashiest Giant he is working to establish his niche. 5
6 WB Went to Stringer tin second half to try an curb his influence and did that well. Took a great mark in the final term. 6
7 StK Went about his business quietly but effectively to end with 22 possessions. Didn’t star but upheld his end of bargain. 6
8 NEAFL Okay without being a standout in midfield. 21 possessions and five clearances.
9 NEAFL Superb and kept the Giants in the hunt. 37 possessions, eight inside 50s and six rebounds.
10 WCE One of the bulls with 11 contested possessions among his 28 disposals. 7
11 Ess Not as prominent as last week, but took a key mark and goalled final term. 5
12 Carl Youngster did well in tough game. Used footy to advantage and was in some good spots to defend. 6
13   Bye.  
14 Bris Won’t need to clean his boots after 14 of his 17 disposals were handpasses. 5
15 Geel Hit target with 13 of 14 disposals. Only two of his 14 touches were kicks. Got caught at times with ball in hand. 4
16 Haw Tough, 25 disposals and six tackles so had a lot of the footy. Doesn’t hurt you with his run though. 6
17 Syd Tried hard with seven tackles, but little impact with the footy with just two kicks. 4
18 Rich Played midfield for a long periods and okay in patches; 15 possessions and four tackles. 4
19 Frem Played on Fyfe in the first half and got belted. Went to him at times in second half, but was hardly sighted when he wasn’t on him. 3
20 Melb Some clever early touches in midfield, then rolled up sleeves for the fight against the wind. 6
21 WB Youngster was hardly sighted for most of the night. Will need to battle hard to keep his place in star studded line-up. 3
22 NEAFL Outstanding in midfield with 37 possessions and nine clearances.
