2017 Season

1 Haw Continued to fine form that he displayed last year with a solid job in the back half. 7
2 Bris From a match-up point of view he held McStay while also collecting a dozen disposals. 4
3 Carl Good effort. Got in the way down back and tried hard to provide some run from defence. 6
4 Adel Switched to Taylor Walker after his dominant first quarter and put the brakes on. 6
5 Coll Unobtrusive but effective defender against the Magpie talls. 5
6   Quad.  
7   Quad.  
8   Quad.  
9   Quad.

17   Quad.  
18 VFL Got through the game okay with no sign of his quad injury. Had 16 disposals.
19 VFL Will be in when he gets more healthy. Was great in his shut down role.
20 Carl Had the job on Curnow and did that pretty well in what was a key win for the team in a tight game. 6
21 Adel Lined up at full-back on Walker who tested him early. 4
22 GCS Defensively sound, particularly in the second half. Spoiled when required. 6
23 Frem Played down back and was okay, but had hands full with Docker talls at stages. 5
EF Syd Job on Franklin started well but ended in tears as he was torn new orifices by the Swans’ star in the second term. 3

2016 Season

1 GCS Learning the craft as a defender and had a tough night on Lynch. 4
2 Melb Defensively towelled Watts at times and that was his primary role. Handy contributor. 5
3 Port Started on Dixon but moved up forward after giving away two free kicks. 5
4 Geel Tried very hard defensively and OK in that role but not much offensively. One kick. 3
5   Senior emergency.  
6 VFL Won plenty of own ball across half back and pleased coaches with his effort.
7 VFL Worked super hard finds it hard to get hands to the ball.
8 NM Had Ben Brown for long periods and actually did a solid defensive job on him. 5
9 StK Tried hard without making inroads. Does the little things, which is good sign. 4
10 Rich Spent entire night on Riewoldt and apart from second term he did a solid job. 6
11 Frem Pavlich was too good for him. Tough night. 4
12 Haw On Gunston early and learning about defence. 4
13 GWS Played on Cameron and did a wonderful job halting the Giants star. 6
15   Back.  
16 StK Continues to progress as a tall defender and had variety of opponents. 5
17 Rich Big task on Riewoldt, but stuck to it admirably and wound up keeping the Tiger star goalless. 7
18 Bris Took Schache for long periods and did well to keep him off the scoreboard in Lions’ 20-goal outing. 6
19 Adel Prevented Lynch from having a huge influence on the game. 5
20 Geel Hardly sighted down back although did well on Menzel when he was on. 4
21 GCS Given huge job on Lynch and held him well in first half and stuck to task after main break. 6
22 WB Capable job in defence without starring on T. Boyd and others. 5
23 Carl Sound defensively. Didn’t give Jones an inch. 6

2015 Season

1 Syd Continually tackled hard and applied pressure in the forward zone. 6
2 Haw Workrate was high but didn’t have a big impact. Took a nice mark late. 4
3 Carl Created pressure and won the ball when required. Improving player. 6
4 Coll Didn’t get involved in dangerous parts of the ground but didn’t give up. 5
5 StK Tackled strongly to keep ball in attack, involved in scoring moves. 6
6 Frem Had a quiet night with only 10 touches and no scores. 3
7 NM Couple of crunching tackles and two goals a handy return up forward. 6
8 Bris Competitive in attacking zone and played his part. 5
9 Rich Struggled to make an impact as a forward but worked hard laying six tackles. 4
10 Geel Failed to find any space and had no impact on the game. 2
11 WCE One of the better tacklers in the team but no scoreboard impact. 4
13 VFL Worked hard but still struggling to find the big sticks.
14   Two early goals but drifted from game as Willy got on top.  
15 Melb Didn’t find a lot of it but worked hard with a team-high eight tackles. 5
16 NM One goal but no impact in attack. Still green in a lot that he does. 3
17 Port Began on Clurey. Not a factor in attack. 4
18 WB Three marks and less influence than a state school maths teacher. 2
19   Senior emergency.  
20 VFL Arguably Bombers’ best with 31 touches and two goals.
21 GCS Defensive pressure in forward 50 was a feature. 4
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.  

2014 Season

2 Haw Three second-half goals after a quiet first half. Likely type. 6
3 VFL Late withdrawal.

5   Quad.  
6 VFL Didn’t have a big day but played a role in attack at times.
7 VFL Competed hard in attack in second game back.
8 Bris At half forward matched on Gardiner at start and neither had big effect. 3
9 Syd Worked hard in the forward half but wasn’t able to have a big impact. 4
10 VFL In and out of the game with 15 possessions against Blues.
11 Rich Worked up the ground to get involved and pushed hard back inside attacking 50. 4

16 Port Only six disposals but produced a crucial goal in the second term. 3
17 Coll Couple of nice early goals and finished with three. Runs well and is athletic. 6
18 WB One goal from limited touches but his workrate was first class. 4
19 Syd Not a big input and subbed off in third term. 2
20   Jaw.  
21 WCE Lined up as negating forward on menacing Hurn. Beaten early but then improved. 5
22 GCS Provided a contest but not busy enough to do any damage. Four marks, no goals. 3
23 Carl Provided a useful option offensively with six marks and a goal. 5
