First half review – Leigh Tudor

"He was made to earn his spot in the 22-man squad. He had some things to work on with the development boys but when the opportunity came, he really grabbed it.

"He's been hard and clean which are the two most important things for an inside midfielder and he showed he can do that.

"He's starting to learn the lifestyle of an AFL player now that he's played a few games and understands all he needs to do."

Second half review – Jarred Moore

“Probably what hurt him was how he was sub for a few weeks in a row, so he lost a bit of fitness because of that.

“Then he had to build that back up before he started playing some good football again in the VFL.

“He definitely showed at AFL level that he can play and Trent knows that.

“If he can build on his aerobic base, the lack of a sub next year will definitely help him. He can play a bit of half-forward as well if needed and be versatile.”
