2017 Season

1 Coll Hard-working forward stuck seven tackles and kicked a goal. 5
2    
3 Frem Kicked one goal but only managed 13 disposals. Has to get more involved. 4
4 NM Among Dogs’ best with 23 effective disposals from a total of 27. Four inside-50s rounded out a workmanlike effort. 7
5 Bris Great game. Knows how to find space, uses footy well and can go and win his own ball. Among the better performers. 8
6 GWS Young ‘Pasty’ was superb with his run and carry highlighted by five clearances and five inside-50s. 7
7 Rich Of his 20 disposals 16 were by hand. Useful in his role. 5
8 WCE Did okay. Good with his hands. 6
9 VFL One of the Bullies best in loss to Geelong. 26 possessions and tried hard throughout.
10 VFL Was everywhere. 38 possessions, seven clearances, three score assists and 11 tackles. Sensational.
11   Bye.  
12 Syd Kicked a nice goal in the second term from the pocket and got a bit of the ball. Fair. 5
13 Melb In after spell in VFL but not his best day. Six kicks, three tackles and four inside-50s. 2
14 NM Among the best with six clearances, three inside-50s and 13 score involvements. Great game. 8
15 WCE Six tackles to go with his 21 touches a reasonable return but also found the going hard against Eagles mids. 5
16 Adel Bulldogs best player on the night with eight clearances, three inside-50’s and eight tackles. 8
17 Carl Ran hard and won the ball well all day. Ended with 26 disposals, three clearances and two goals. 7
18 GCS Best outing in many weeks and won a lot of the ball drifting up from half forward. 7
19 Ess Busy and productive afternoon highlighted by strong running and workrate. Gained nearly 360 metres and used ball well. 6
20 Bris A gutsy smother on a Zorko kick almost ended badly when he needed attention for sore ribs. Stuck at the task all game. 7
21 GWS Solid effort. Couldn’t question what he brought to the table but lacked support in second half. 7
22 Port A good ball winner, but ducked for frees alot. Just has to get that trait out of his game and he’ll become a fine player. 7
23 Haw Youngster finished year in style with 26 disposals, six tackles and 11 score involvements. Good season. 7

2016 Season

1 Frem Played with great enthusiasm. Took a few great marks and was consistently involved. 6
2 StK Provided headaches for Geary and showed great strength overhead for his size. Impressive, 7
3 Haw Only 12 touches but a pest up forward with two goals. 6
4 Carl Played across half forward and handy without setting game alight. One goal. 4
5 Bris Made the most of reprieve as late inclusion with two goals and 25 touches. Going places. 7
6 NM Matched on McDonald initially and had a solid game. 5
7 Adel Looks a player. In and out of the game but he did some good things. 4
8 Melb Chipped in for a goal and three inside-50s. Great ability to draw a high free kick. 6
9 GWS Had difficulty getting into the game, but converted his opportunities with 2.0. 4

11 WCE Going well until injured foot just before half time and was out for the remainder. 3
