2017 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Battled hard down back but at times disposal let him down. Did what he could. 5
2 Melb Didn’t make any glaring errors, but wasn’t a big factor either. 4
3 Ess Conditions suited his style but made the most of it to be a handy performer backward of centre. Won some ball to boot. 7
4 GCS Minimal impact overall on the contest. Chocolates to boiled lollies. 3
5 Port Tried in vain to curb the onslaught but it was all too much for the young Blues defence to contain. 4
6 Syd Defensively solid all day and found a way to gather 16 disposals. Played his role and played it well. 6
7 Coll OK on Elliott until the energetic Magpie got more mobile. 4
8 StK Part of defence that held up pretty well under extreme pressure. Serviceable afternoon. 5
9 VFL Very good effort down back. Had 26 possessions and provided strong leadership.
10   Senior emergency.  
11   Bye.  
12 VFL Set the Blues up in defence and didn’t give too much room to his opponents.
13 VFL Superb again down back. 23 possessions, eight rebounds and controlled the air.
14 VFL Used in defence, then through middle in spurts. Battled gamely.
15 Adel Great bump on McGovern in the third term created space for a teammate which led to a goal. 5
16 Melb Had job on Pedersen and ding it well until injured knee just before half time and day was done. 3
17   Knee.  
18   Knee.  
19 Geel Started well but after quarter-time he only touched the ball five times. Needs to London Fog and lift. 3
20   Knee.  
21   Knee.  
22   Knee.  
23   Knee.  

2016 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich OK down back but wasn’t an overly influential perfomer. Steady. 5
2 Syd A solid four-quarter effort. Showed courage in the air and on the deck. 6
3 VFL Fought hard down back and did what he could in a reasonable effort.
4 VFL Stood firm down back all night and gave great direction to teammates.
5   Senior emergency.  
6 Ess Battled hard up forward then pushed into defence when Weitering went down. Provided something. 5
7   Shin.  
8   Senior emergency.  
9 NM Given the job on Brown and had hands full. 3
10 Geel Great game. Did the right things at the right time and showed courage at times. 7
11 Bris Hard as a cat’s head. Intimated his opponents and was disciplined as always. 6
12 StK Not a big factor at all. 3
14 GWS Got the better of the in-form Shaw in negating forward role. 7
15 Coll Provided little in attack after an early goal. Only one tackle. 3
16 Adel Good first half then tended to drift out of the game. Certainly not the worst. 5
17 WCE Has found his feet in defence and again won plenty of football. 7
18 Syd Did some good things in backline and remained accountable on a number of opponents. 5
19 Haw A productive and important part of a well organised defence. Found some ball. 6
20 StK No real impact overall in a number of roles. 4
21 Bris Started on Walker and won the battle but part of a Blues defence too loose early. 6
22 Melb Cleaned up Weideman to play a handy role in defence. 6
23 Ess Tried hard but made too many errors by hand and foot. 4

6   Knee.  
7 GWS Back in team after injury layoff and looked rusty. 4
8 Geel Hawkins monstered him at times. Two tackles. 3
9 Syd Moved off Franklin 14 minutes in after he’d kicked three goals. Better on Tippett. 4
10 Adel Took Walker and did a good job nullifying him which was his priority. 6
12 Port Went to Westhoff and did an admirable job given he was giving away size. 5
13 GCS Battled hard down back but undersized on Lynch. 4
14 WB Had hands full with Redpath at stages but fought on well. 6
15 Rich Did a pretty solid job down back on Riewoldt despite conceding a few goals. 5
16 Frem Great job on Fyfe. Keeping him goalless and to 23 touches was a big effort. 7
17 Haw Used in midfield at times and while got a few touches not many were effective. 3
18 NM Tracked Waite and was run right up the ground. Not his night. 3
19 Coll Ran with Pendlebury but couldn't rein in Magpie's impact. 3
20   Knee.  
21   Knee.  
22   Knee.  
23   Knee.

5 WB Handed the job on Crameri and couldn’t restrict him. 3
6 WCE Held his own on Darling. 4

8 StK Quiet night playing mostly in defence. Will he keep his spot? 2
10 Adel Kept Walker to one goal which was a pivotal win in a tight match. 6
11 Bris Did an unspectacular but effective job on Paine. 5
12 Geel Odd selection as sub. Played in two bursts, neither of which impacted. 1

14 GWS Unable to get his teeth into game, subbed out in the third term. 4
15   Knee.

18 NM On Black at first and was steady. 4
19 Frem Kept Mayne out of contest early and then switched off in shuffle. 4
20 GCS Showed versatility by being effective forward in first half and then back late. 6
21 Geel Thrashed by Rivers and confidence dropped. Missed mark in final term a howler. 2
22 Port Broke the Power’s run of 10 consecutive goals. 4
23 Ess Strong at the man and the ball. 13 touches and eight marks. 6
