First half review – Gavin Brown

“He’s playing midfield with a little bit of wing. He’s playing consistent footy with a concentration and focus on his inside work. He’s really improved in both of those areas.

“Over the last four or five weeks he’s been tracking well.”

Second half review – Jarred Moore

“By his own admission he struggled for the first few rounds.

“After sitting down and working everything out he knuckled down and played some really good footy in the back end of the year.

“From halfway on the majority was on the wing and his work rate went to another level.

“To be able to force his way into the side for Round 23, then play well, showed everyone he’s definitely up to the standard. We’re hoping to see more of him.”
