“Tom had a lot of the ball. He probably turned it over a little bit more than he would have liked, so that sort of let him down a little bit in what [was] a pretty tough day for the backline.”

Stats: 27 disposals, three goals, seven marks, one tackle

“Tom had a really good game. He had a purple patch in the third quarter which really broke the game open for us. We kicked six goals in the third quarter and he was involved in a lot of those kicks and set a couple up so he really broke the game open for us. He had a lot of the ball, 27 touches throughout the day. He rebounded from defence and he set us up going forward."

Calf injury, will miss a few weeks, or several.

Midfielder Tom Cutler will miss several weeks of football after suffering a calf injury in Essendon’s VFL loss to Carlton.

The versatile 25-year-old was forced out of Sunday’s game early and subsequent scans have confirmed Cutler will face a stint on the sidelines.

“Unfortunately, he (Tom Cutler) sustained a calf strain,” Murphy said.

“He had an MRI yesterday to confirm that. We’ll see how he settles this week, but he’ll miss a few weeks with that.”

Much the same in the VFL update as well:

Stats: Six disposals, one tackle

“‘Cuts’ started well. He was getting plenty of the ball in the first quarter and then he did his calf in the second quarter, so that was disappointing for him. He’s going to miss a few weeks now.”
