2017 Season

1 Syd Dour defender mixed good and bad as only he can. Held his defensive end up pretty well. 4
2 Frem Good duel with Shane Kersten with Jonas taking out the honours. 6
3 Adel Did well to keep Eddie Betts to three goals, he looked sharp all evening. 6
4 GWS Excellent effort in negating Cameron’s scoreboard impact, keeping him to just one goal. 7
5 Carl The one Port defender who lost out on the night to the hardworking Levi Casboult. 4
6 Bris Even when the match was decided, he was still putting his body on the line in defence. 6
7 WCE Did a great job keeping the reigning Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy to two goals. 6
8 GCS Towelled up Lynch and forced the Suns star into the back half. Outstanding performance. 9
9   Bye.  
10 Geel Thrown task on Menzel and can hold his head high given Cat managed just one goal. 6
11 Haw Stress free night in defence given total domination across the entire field. Did what was required but only four kicks. 4
12 Ess All at sea early amid Bomber blitz down back and only improved slightly. One to forget. 3
13 Bris Doesn’t give his opponent an inch, as strong a dour defender as they come. 6
14 Coll Third tall defender just used his fist Mick Schulz-style. Rugged and tackled hard when he got the opportunity. 6
15 Rich Kept Sam Lloyd to one goal and provided five rebound-50’s. 6
16 WCE Didn’t concede much in defence. Held firm in contests. 5
17 NM In a team defence performance along with Tom Clurey and Logan Austin shut down the big Kangaroo forwards. 6
18 Melb Gave Watts a toweling down back and was one of the most consistent Port players. 7
19 StK Worked hard in cutting off Saints and had a solid game down back. 5
20 Adel Went to Taylor Walker and just couldn’t cope with his body use and smarts with the footy in hand. 4
21 Coll Unlucky to man up on Sam Reid, did some good things but Reid won the personal battle with four goals. 4
22 WB Started on Stringer, then had Bontempelli when he rested forward. Booed for much of day after off-ball bump on Dahlhaus. 7
23   Suspended.  
EF   Suspended.  

2016 Season

1 StK Played as the third tall in defence, switching with Trengove. 5
2 Adel Playing tall on the smaller Crows forwards and found wanting. 3
3 Ess Nullified Ambrose when he shifted to the forward line. 6
4 GWS Did his job on Tomlinson and was serviceable in the back half. 4
5 Geel Took Kersten/Stanley among others. Dour type who doesn’t do much offensively. 3
6 Rich Went to Vickery and did a fine job to negate the big man’s impact. 7
7 Bris Kept Walker to no goals and just two contested marks. 6
8 Carl Not really a factor in terms of attack from defence. 3
9 WCE Late elbow on Gaff should see him miss at least two matches. 3

4 Haw Took care of Puopolo when he was in the game. 4
5 Adel Struggled to keep up with Betts. 4

9 Melb Just eight touches but defended strongly. 5
10 WB Restricted livewire forward Dickson to one goal. 6
11 Geel Didn’t have a match-up and unable to impact game in either phase. 3
12 Carl Variety of opponents and battled hard without starring. Two rebound 50s. 4
14 Syd Loose on Goodes and made some horror mistakes. Suspect under pressure. 4
15   Quad.  
16   Quad.  
17 SANFL Showed some good signs in defence in return from injury.
18 SANFL Looked totally out of sorts.
19 SANFL A better effort in defence but not quite the Jonas of old just yet.
20 GWS Cameron may have got three goals but Jonas won the battle. 6
21 Haw Gunston was his opponent and proved a bit slippery in front half. 5
22 GCS Had his hands full with Lynch but stuck to the task. 5

15 Adel Great dual with Lynch, both were good for their teams. 6
16 Ess Dealt with both Carlisle and Hurley at centre half back. 6
17 Rich Gave away size to Vickery and battled hard under constant pressure. 5
18 Melb Great battle with James Frawley, allowing just one goal. 5
19 Coll Defensively did his job playing on taller opponents and was hard at it. 6
20 Syd Did the job on Goodes and pumped the footy inside-50 five times. 6
21 GCS Chopped off a few Suns’ attacks and was generally sturdy in defence. 7
22 Carl Curbed the influential Menzel out of the game. 6
23 Frem Toiled hard in defence. 5
