2016 Season

Played for : Essendon

1   Played in VFL trial against Footscray.  
2   Played in VFL trial against Richmond.  
3 VFL Quiet one playing half forward/wing role and not likely to get senior call-up.
4 VFL Did some good things floating forward of centre but quiet in patches.
5 VFL Didn’t feature on stats or scoresheet in another slightly disappointing effort.
6 VFL Won a bit of ball playing half forward-wing but can be more damaging.
7 VFL Best game of the year. Stepped up late to break the lines for his team.
8 VFL Five inside-50s but kicking efficiency well down so that hurt his output.
9 VFL Huge game. Six inside-50s, five clearances and 30 disposals. Senior call-up maybe?
10 Rich First game for the year but struggled to get the ball in any space. Just the two inside-50s. 3
11 Frem Must be persevered with. Has talent. 5
12 Haw Has speed and other attributes, but not taking advantage of his chance. 3
13   Senior emergency.  
14 VFL Bye.
15 VFL Worked hard but kicking efficiency let him down. Only 7 of 17 hit the target.
16 VFL Mixed good and bad. Tried to do too much at times and paid the price.
17 VFL Eight inside-50s, two goals and four tackles was a productive afternoon.
18 VFL Showed a little bit, including six tackles and 14 kicks. Not the worst.
19 VFL Bye.
20 VFL Floated around. Career has to be in danger given inability to consistently impact VFL.
21 VFL Seventeen on his 18 touches were kicks. One goal, four inside-50s. Even effort.
22 VFL Found form. Work-rate good up and down the ground and used the ball pretty well.
