Connor Menadue

26 disposals, six tackles, seven clearances, nine inside-50s and four rebound-50s

“Excellent game, would have been disappointed in dropping back from AFL (level) but certainly didn’t show it. Played a different role, and adding a new dimension to his game, which is reflected in his 16 contested possessions and seven clearances.”

Liam Baker

23 disposals, one goal, seven inside-50s, three clearances and three tackles

“Livewire, he seemed to be everywhere and was hard to contain.”

Corey Ellis

22 disposals, 11 tackles, six clearances and two goals

“Was all class in the wet, was hard at it, clean and creative and was able to hit the scoreboard with two goals.”

Anthony Miles

20 disposals, eight clearances and 11 contested possessions

“Played well and has a huge influence on those around him.”

Shai Bolton

18 disposals, 12 contested possessions, four tackles and five clearances

“In good form and I like seeing him impacting the game, not only as a forward, but also going through the midfield.”

Callum Moore

17 disposals, five goals, five marks and four tackles

“Grinded away in the first-half in tough conditions for a tall forward. Exploded in the second half with speed and work-rate and contest and to top it off, kicked five goals.”

Nathan Drummond

14 disposals, eight tackles and five handball receives

“Has been consistent since his return from injury, and we want to see him really step it up now.”

Patrick Naish

13 disposals, six handball receives and three tackles

“Lively, and kept running all day.” 

Tyson Stengle

12 disposals, one goal and five tackles

“Quiet, but still important and played his role in our system. He kicked a goal and set-up a couple.”

Ben Miller

11 disposals, six contested possessions and two rebound-50s

“Clean in the conditions and played a strong game.”

Noah Balta

Nine disposals, two tackles, two inside-50s and two rebound-50s

“Played forward and back, continues to grow his game.”

Callum Coleman-Jones

24 hit-outs, eight tackles, seven disposals and two marks

“Battled hard in the ruck, enjoying his progress and continued improvement.”

Joel Ernest

23 disposals, five marks and nine rebound-50s

“A breakout game. He continually won the ball back, and gave great drive from half-back, showed a cool head.”

Brandon Wood

16 disposals, seven clearances, 11 contested possessions and three tackles

“We missed him last week and it was great to have him back and bullocking around stoppages.”

Tom Silvestro

13 disposals, two goals, 10 contested possessions, and three tackles

“Three tackles and two goals, continued his good form.”

Jake Aarts

11 disposals, nine tackles, one goal and five inside-50s

“Captain for the day, and led from the front as he always does. His speeches in the breaks seemed to get the boys up and about.”

Max O’Sullivan

11 disposals, one goal and three marks

“A couple of shots at goal, and a touch of class. Not a huge game, but he slotted in nicely.”

Daniel Coffield

Nine disposals, five tackles and three marks

“A little bit rusty last week, but really stepped it up this week. His leadership was superb, well organised and made it tough for the ‘oppo’ (opposition) to get through.”

Billy Coates

Nine disposals, three hit-out and one tackle

“Played forward, back and in the ruck, has great versatility and was able to impact in each of these roles. He competed in the air and on the ground and looked strong and clean

Brenton Credlin

Eight disposals, two tackles and four inside-50s

“Liking his ability to get it done whenever he’s called upon. Another strong contributor.”

Reuben Hayward

Eight disposals, three tackles and seven contested possessions

“Played his part in a well organised backline.”

Shaun Mannagh

Six disposals, four handball receives, five tackles and two clearances

“Worked hard all-day and although offensively not the impact he normally has, defensively he was sound and got his hands dirty with five tackles.”

Harry Tanner

Three disposals, four tackles and two inside-50s

“Not a huge impact stats wise, but added speed to our team and pressure.”
