2017 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1    
2 GCS Won the ball well in the back half and was able to help launch multiple attacks. Ball use was fairly good all game. 6
3 NM Late goal on the run a special. Otherwise an unobtrusive outing from the defender. 4
4 Port Rebounded well at stages from defence and used his pace at times to evade opponents. Fair. 5
5 Syd Keen to take the game on , and contested strongly against all sizes of opposition forwards. 6
6 WB Not as effective as he can be and only had 11 effective disposals. Burst from the back half wasn’t noticeable. 4
7 StK Kicked brilliant goal early in game. Sling tackle had him seeing stars in second term but returned. Not a factor after injury. 5
8 Coll Off the bench and into defence when Corr was injured. Continually launched Giants attacks. 7
9 Rich Gave good drive off half back and tucked the ball under his arm a few times to take Tigers on. 7
10 WCE His kicking inside 50 was a delight to watch. 7
11 Ess Didn’t miss a target with his touches and gave some run off half back. 6
12 Carl Provided some rebound from defence at times but when game was on line in final term he wasn’t a factor. 5
13   Bye.  
14 Bris Showed his sublime skills when he hit Greene with a perfectly weighted 55m pass. Solid four quarter effort. 6
15 Geel Long kicking was a factor and he was one of the few Giants that played well in the first half; 25 disposals and one goal. 8
16 Haw 17 touches, three inside 50s and three rebounds, but without Zac Williams needed a bit more from him. 5
17 Syd Had four disposals to half time at zero efficiency by foot. Finished with only eight touches and was ineffective. 2
18 Rich Rebounder did some good things from the GWS back-half. Found the ball 22 times and seven inside-50s. 7
19 Frem Calming influence in defence but not a massive impact on the flow of the game. 5
20 Melb Drive from half back gave Giants control all day. Good outing. 7
21 WB Under siege as a mid-sized defender then like Williams got off the chain to impact game from a rebounding perspective. 6
22 WCE Blended his offensive and defensive work really well. Strong throughout the day. 7
23 Geel Cats’ restricted his energy from defence and never allowed to run and carry and kick it 50 metres; 12 effective disposals. 4
QF Adel Just a handful of touches off half back and unable to get any rebound going. 4
SF WCE First term kick that set up a GWS goal was a highlight, then backed it up with another ripper in second term. Handy. 6
PF Rich Made a couple of mistakes and was quiet in the day as well as loose on Rioli. 3

2016 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1 Melb Among the Giants’ best. Won his own ball and used it brilliantly. Huge positive. 7
2 Geel Superb running goal early helped settled side and looked dangerous. Injured late. 6
3 Syd Worked tirelessly in the Giants’ back half and was among the side’s best in the second half. 6
4 Port Strong rebounding effort out of defence. 5
5 StK Has made the role of the running half back his own this year and was solid again. 7
6 Haw Copped a high bump in first term but line-breaking run off half back was eye-catching. 6
7 Frem Enjoyed the chance to run and kick long when back in WA. 5
8 GCS Hard runner who gave forwards ample supply with seven inside-50s. 6
9 WB Provided a lot of drive out of defence with six rebound-50s. 6
10 Adel Six rebound-50s running out of defence. OK but not at his best. 5
11 Geel What he did had a touch of class and work-rate strong despite overall impact being limited. 5
12 Syd Ran and carry out of backline outstanding, and clean with ball use. 6
13 Ess Not able to use his speed as much as he would have liked but still handy. 6
14 Carl Did what he had to do in defence despite modest stats. 4
16   Groin.  
17   Groin.  
18 Port Valuable contributor to the midfield, not a lot of touches but quality. 5
19 Rich Superb early before fading out of the match in second half. 5
20 GCS Kicked it each of the 12 times he touched it, including seven rebound 50s. 5
21 NEAFL Run and carry very impressive. Made the right decisions when he got it.
22 Frem Failed to provide usual line breaking dash but still won a bit of the ball. 5
23 NM Had Harvey and Thomas at times after starting on pine. 12 touches – all kicks. 5
QF Syd A few early errors, but broke the lines off half back and grew in confidence. 6
PF WB At times showed customary dash but for periods drifted out of the contest. 5
