4. Callum Ah Chee

Played as a high center-back but was unable to provide the same drive as him for most of the season. 3

5. Mitch Robinson

Started on a wing on Sam Menegola but was quickly off the ground thanks to a finger in the eye of his direct opponent. Holding the Lions forward as they challenged the cats in the middle two quarters, but was calm about the bookends. 5

6. Hugh McCluggage

Manned by Mark Blicavs on the wing. He jacked up much of the footy early on, but most of his touches were in the back half. 5

7. Jarrod Berry

Didn’t seem to be spending too much time on the ball and playing more as a high striker. His quietest game (outside of the 16th round against the suns when he was injured). 3

9. Lachie Neale

With so many of his teammates, the Brownlow favorite gritted his teeth and never gave in. Went head to head with Cam Guthrie. Only the two touches in the first season, which, however, moved after the quarter of an hour with 10 departures in the second quarter and shortly before halftime won some important controversial possessions, clearances and an inspiring goal. Kicked a massive goal early in the fourth quarter to give Brisbane hope, but minutes later had a shocking turnover on the Defensive 50 that nearly resulted in a Geelong goal. The # 1 local player for releases, disputed possessions, and divestments. 8

10. Daniel Rich

Went to Luke Dahlhaus on the first jump, then to Gary Ablett when the big man hit the floor. Got caught defensively a couple of times in the first half giving ablett too much freedom of movement causing the champion to get involved in Cats results. Great effect in the second season with 10 strokes when he constantly drove the ball off the defensive 50. He was still gaining more territory than any other player on the ground. 6

The lights go out in Gabba


11. Lincoln McCarthy

Manned by Mark O’Connor on first ricochet. Forward pressure applied, with three tackles in the first season more focused on the ball after the quarter of an hour leading to Lions results. One of the better players on his team, but no doubt it would have hurt if his old team had made a big final. 6

12. Stefan Martin

Spent only half the game on the floor. It almost appears to have been a Lions handover of the No. 1 jerk baton, with Oscar McInerney playing most of the jerk competitions. 3

14. Grant Birchall

Trying to come apart as much as possible was tried, but it meant Sam Simpson was able to come apart in the event of interruptions and make some important clearances. Injured hamstring when he was eliminated late in the game. Just 10 touches. Contract for the next season. 4

15. Dayne Zorko

Like many others, the captain just couldn’t get himself into the game and ended the game with only 13 exits and 0.1. Won 262m for his side. 4

16. Cam Rayner

Manned early by Jack Henry. Kicked a Monster Longbomb Gate in third term to get his team to act. Didn’t do much else for the night. 4

17. Jarryd Lyons

Far from his great performance in qualifying against Richmond. Only nine contacts in the first three quarters. Had eight departures in the last quarter but left too much to Lachie Neale at the coal mountain. 4

23. Charlie Cameron

Looked ominous from the first jump, but faded after the quarter of an hour. He was picked up by Jake Kolodjashnij and immediately scored a hit. He scored the first goal of the game thanks to a nice set shot kick. And when the Lions moved the ball quickly within 50 minutes later, it caught Jack Henry holding the ball to win a free kick and hit his second major. Stateless in the second quarter, then only one kick in the second half. 4

25. Dan McStay

Had Lachie Henderson company early on but didn’t touch the ball in the first season and ended the night with only three departures. Only six departures and one goal in his two finals. I wonder how he feels with Joe Daniher who is going to arrive at the club. 1

28. Cam Ellis-Yolmen

Came in for young Keidean Coleman to provide a larger body. Got a bit off the ball in the fourth season but had little impact on the game when it was really up for grabs. 4

30. Eric Hipwood

Harry Taylor went to him. Got off to a quiet start but scored a crucial goal against the tide early in the second quarter. Makes a great destination within 50 all night. Played with great presence in both finals. 5

31. Harris Andrews

As expected, it went to Tom Hawkins. Got up early, cut off a few Geelong forays, and intercepted the ball. But Hawkins also had his moments. Finished with 10 touches and seven sections. 5

33. Zac Bailey

Got a chance to improve the score on the halftime siren but missed a set shot. Finished with 10 exits but most of them were won in the back half. 4

35. Ryan Lester

With Darcy Gardiner, the late retreat, he was entrusted with Patrick Dangerfield on the first ricochet – and he held his own in the arc. Had a chance to give hope to the Lions in the last quarter before goal after a 50 meter penalty, but failed on his set shot attempt. Still had a strong game and ended with 14 exits, six marks and seven exits. 6

The best of Rohan

37. Brandon Starcevich

Stateless in the first term of office – and afterwards didn’t have much foothold. Probably the man should have stopped Gary Ablett. A disappointing last game in an excellent second half. 3

40. Jack Payne

Darcy Gardiner’s late inclusion in his fifth AFL game looked solid on the big stage. Went to Gary Rohan on first rebound and made an early name for himself with two impressive intercept markings. Seemed like a good balance between knowing when to attack and when to defend. However, Rohan got off the leash late. 5

46. ​​Oscar McInerney

Started forward but as he moved onto the ball he showed great pace of work by pushing into defense and scoring crucial interceptors. Got a few clearances and gained territory for his team too. However, struggled forward 50 stops, allowing Tom Hawkins front position too often in jerk competitions. 5
