2017 Season

3 Ess Only goal came on final siren. Didn’t have an impact on flow of game prior to that; eight disposals. 3
4 PM Knocked up winning the ball in midfield with 40-odd touches. Showed his younger opponents how an AFL player works.
5 VFL Put his hand up for a senior recall with 30 possessions and nine tackles. Did what was asked.
6 VFL Strong effort in the middle. 31 disposals and two goals rounded out a good day at the office.
7 Coll Off the bench to get involved in the clinches; nine tackles. 5
8 VFL Ran hard in midfield to get the ball going the Blues way. 30 possessions, 11 marks.
9 VFL Drifted in and out of the game for his 25 possessions.
10   Bye.  
11   Bye.  
12 VFL Provided a sterling link in midfield. Had 32 touches and took 16 marks in the win.
13 VFL One of the Blues best running up and down the wing. 27 possessions.
14   Senior emergency.  
15 Adel Big goal from inside the centre square to get the Blues within one goal in the second term. 6
16 Melb Racked up stats playing more midfield and gathered a career-high 35 possessions. Tireless workrate a feature. 8
17 WB Won the ball well but some of his decision-making and skill execution hurt his ability to impact the flow of the contest. 6
18 Bris Lifted considerably in second half when the Blues made a charge. Too late she cried! 6
19 Geel Got a bit of the ball while trying to tag J Selwood. Effort there but impact not enormous despite 23 disposals. 6
20 Ess Found a lot of the pill but his disposal and decision-making a little off at times; 19 possessions and seven rebound 50s. 6
21 WCE Followed Gaff for most of the night but won his own ball too. 6
22 Haw Has run into a good vein of form. Worked tirelessly for 4 quarters and tackled with intent. Set the tone early. 7
23 Syd Worked hard for his 6 tackles and 16 touches. Unfortunately a couple of classes below Kennedy and Parker. 5

2016 Season

1 Rich Played role in midfield but shanked shot for goal on run in final term proved costly. 6
2 Syd Lacked some polish but kicked two goals and won his fair share of the pill. Good find. 7
3 GCS Did some good things but a little wasteful with the footy. 5
4 WB Battled super hard against the tide. Always around the ball but lacked support. 6
5 Frem His work inside 50 set up several shots for the Blues. 6
6 Ess Won a bit of ball but not enormously damaging forward of centre. Three inside-50s. 5
7 Coll On a wing to start and had a few iffy moments but worked into the game fairly well. 5
8 Port One of the few Blues’ to have a quieter day than previous outings. Just 15 touches. 5
9 NM Played mostly on a wing on Macmillan. Good accumulator but didn’t hurt Roos much. 6
10 Geel Quiet. Only five kicks and one inside-50. Did lay seven tackles. 4
11 Bris Disposal not always clean but worked tirelessly for his 30 disposals and 16 marks. 7
12 StK High proportion of disposals handballs and his kicks didn’t cause damage. 4
14 GWS Had no trouble finding the footy, but didn’t hurt Giants with disposal. 5
15 Coll Butchered ball from a wing. Decision-making is a concern and laid just one tackle. 4
16 Adel Against former side he flitted in and out. Didn’t hurt the Crows to any degree. 5
17 WCE Rebounded from quiet week versus Crows to be a key player. Work-rate handy. 7
18 Syd Not his best effort. Ball use needed to be better and didn’t lay a single tackle. 4
19 Haw Did a reasonable job running with Mitchell. Disposal by foot is still an issue. 6
20 StK Latched onto Steven and effective in negating his influence. Unable to hurt going forward though. 6
21 Bris Sluggish in first half although he was responsible for Rich at times and succeeded at that. 5
22   Ill.  
23 Ess Quietened Goddard after the main break and could have had more than one goal. 5
