5 NM Used the ball well out of defence but only 16 disposals. 5
6 Frem Needs to use his strength (booming left foot) more often. 4
7 GWS His left foot is such a weapon, and put to good use as he had plenty of space. 6
8 NEAFL Won plenty of the footy but inconsistent with kicking.
10 Coll Used his raking left foot when he could and certainly not the worst. 6
