Justins season can be best summed up as a tale of two halves. His first half of the season was outstanding and was the clubs clear best player up until the first by in Round 12. The second half of the season saw him lose form and struggle for consistency and output, whilst also missing two games with injury.

His start to the season though was fantastic. He was excellent against Collingwood in Round 1 with 4 goals. He won the Showdown Medal for his 24 disposal, 10 mark, 2 goal match winning performance against Adelaide. He followed that up with another 10 marks against Gold Coast in a good performance – despite missing the shot for goal after the siren. He picked up another 9 marks and 19 disposals in Round 6 against North Melbourne.

Another good period came before the bye in Rounds 10 and 11 where he was high amongst the best players. But his form seemed to leave him on bye weekend. He failed to impact games and was struggling for touch before missing two weeks with a toe injury from Rounds 16-18. His form to end the season was better, with a match winning effort against Melbourne in Round 24 with 8 marks and 4 goals.

His form in the first half of the year was electric but it’s the two month period where he struggled which makes Justin such a frustrating player. Capable of the brilliant mark, the clever goal and the ability to find space up the field, he can often spoil his good work by a poor clanger or even an inability to get near the ball for weeks at a time. Its these elongated poor patches which really stop Justin from becoming a player capable of winning a best and fairest and kicking 40+ goals a year.

Hopefully, with a fit Jay Schulz and John Butcher in the lineup, this should allow Justin the space and freedom to roam the half forward line and cause some more regular havoc for the opposition.

Notes:
Justin had his best season of AFL football since his debut season in 2012, performing adequately up forward whilst also spending plenty of time in the middle and behind the ball. He finished second for the club in marks, contested marks and goals and was rewarded with an equal fourth position in the best and fairest. Justin’s consistency up forward was at times erratic, needing to go back in defence to find the football, but overall his season was a positive. Justin is a player who should improve as the team as a whole improves.

in the first 4 games of 2013 he went from 2001 to 1 for the brownlow to about 26 to 1 for the brownlow .. in his 5th game he was quiet... so it will be interesting to see how his odds go

hopefully he will have a good rest of the year ..

I am surprised to see that Hoff is a 1000 to 1 for the 2014 brownlow .. it would be worth putting a lazy $2 on him for a win or a place

Review by TeeKray
Westy had an interesting year. With the addition of Paddy Ryder, his time as both a forward and a relief ruckman became limited. As such, he became something of a roaming wingman. He struggled early in the year both in terms of finding the football and hitting the scoreboard, kicking only 5 goals in the first 8 games. But as the season went on, Westy gathered momentum. He was a key player in our win over Collingwood with an absolutely dominant first half and was best on ground against Fremantle in the final game of the season.

Interesting fact
the hoff kicked more goals in his debut season (34) as a skinny twig (despite playing only 16 games) than in any other season
