2017 Season

1 Frem Kicked goal of the day after three bounces along the wing. Pressure good despite modest stats. 4
2   Hand.  
3   Hand.  
4 Haw Impacted the game when he went near the ball and showcased his hardness. Six tackles and a goal good reward. 6
5 StK Quiet until late in game when came to life with a couple of goals. Got feisty with a few Saints including Riewoldt/Carlisle. 3
6 Coll First goal of game then couldn’t get into the contest at all. Tried to be physical with a few Pies but it backfired. 2
7 GCS Struggled. Looked better when given a run in the midfield but impact overall wasn’t huge. Six effective disposals. 2
8 Ess Didn’t have a huge impact but at least played with some aggression. Had a quarter of Cats tackles in first three quarters. 3
9 WB Set up early Blicavs goals then pinged a hamstring before quarter time and night was done. 1
10   Hamstring.  
11 Adel Gave away a silly 50-metre penalty that cost a goal. Quiet one with three effective disposals but did lay seven tackles. 3
12   Bye.  
13 WCE Kicked first goal in opening 90 seconds and then suffered injury soon after and was done for the day. 1
14   Hamstring.  
15   Hamstring.  
16   Hamstring.  
17   Hamstring.  
18   Hamstring.  
19 Carl First-quarter goal and had three on the board until pinged a hamstring in final term. Disaster for the kid. 6
20   Hamstring.  
21   Hamstring.  
22   Hamstring.  
23   Hamstring.  
QF   Hamstring.  
SF   Hamstring.  
PF Adel Kicked team’s first goal and that was about. Got through the game, which was the ironic positive. 3

2016 Season

1   Suspended.  
2   Suspended.  
3 Bris One great passage of play set up a Guthrie goal but otherwise hardly sighted. 1
4 Ess Laid eight brutal tackles and pressure first class. Among the best. 7
5 Port Kicked a second-term goal and took a nice mark. Modest stats but all good experience. 3
6 GCS From limited chances kicked three goals. Seems to be getting more confident with game time. 5
7 WCE Injured leg early and while returned looked severely hampered. Kicked one goal late. 3
8   Knee.  
9   Knee.  
10   Knee.  
11   Knee.  
12   Knee.  
13   Knee.  
14 VFL Played second half only (14 disp) and buzzed about in good return from injury.
15 VFL Bye.
16 Syd Some of what he tried didn’t come off but at least gave a spark at times. 5
17 Frem Caught trying to do too much at times but kicked a goal and laid three tackles. 4
18 Adel One goal and a score assist from six kicks. Flashed in and out. 4
19 WB Couple of things he did provided a glimpse into the future. He’ll be a star. 4
20 Ess Snagged two goals but at times tried to do too much. Four inside-50s. 5
21   Knee.  
22   Knee.  
23 VFL Seven inside-50s, five clearances and seven tackles. Good return from injury.

2015 Season

1 Haw First-gamer couldn’t find any space to use his x-factor. Great experience. 2
2 Frem Sub. On third term but failed to have a kick. 0
3 GCS Sub. On early to replace Bartel. Five disposals in final term were handy. 3
4 NM Kid found the footy elusive but his physicality continues to stand out. 2
5 VFL Back in form after AFL axing. 22 touches, one goal.
6 Coll Sub. Sealed win with a brilliant snap goal… and celebration to match. 3
7   Rested.  
8 VFL Burst in and out a few times but was subdued by Port.
9   Adductor.  
10   Adductor.  
11 VFL Quiet on return with 11 possessions, goal.
12   Senior emergency.  
13 VFL Bye.
14   Adductor.  
15 VFL Ran well off half back on return from injury.
16 VFL Ran off half back at times to moderate effect.
17   Just nine touches and wasn’t a big factor.  
18 Bris Sub. On for a run in final term down back. Couple of touches. 1
19 Syd Still playing junior footy. Unlikely to stay in team but great experience. 2
20 Haw Sub. One nice running goal and should have jagged another. 1
21 StK Sub. On to start second half. Set one goal up and kicked another late. 2
22 Coll Made mistakes but got to love the way he attacks the game. 5
23 Adel Excited and frustrated. Needs to work on his short kicking over summer. 3
