    Accidentally did this in health and fitness before.

    Feel free to use a set out similar to this. I thought it would be helpful to see how you can improve.

    Other Teams:

    Position: hff/wing
    Height: 187
    Weight: (wait for it) 63. Only because I haven't been able to work out since I did my knee a couple months ago, dropped 12 kgs
    Age: 18


    Strengths:
    Leading because I would run up to the wing on a lead from ff, so my marking on the run was always good
    Always put my head over the ball
    Fast hands, could get the ball out of the pack very fast and handball at least 15m both hands
    Physical player for my size
    Long kick

    Weaknesses:
    Disposal was poor under pressure, weird because I loved being at the bottom of the pack getting the ball out
    Not fast with ball in hand
    Kicked a lot of floaters
    I was always playing with niggles, but still managed to only miss 1 game in 5 years
    Was played mostly in the forward line, but I hated it, I preferred to play in defense or on the ball, but we had plenty of mids and I never got enough opportunities to play backline
    Didn't work enough in preseason, hated training but never missed a session, if I went back now I would be much better because I love to work out now, was going to return this year but fractured kneecap and tore mpfl, I could still make it back this season but I decided to take the year off so I don't stuff it up long term, besides, muscle wasting so severe I doubt I could kick 10 metres.

    Scouting Report for: mike123

    Position Played: Left Wing/Forward Pocket (currently), I've have also played as a tagger and a defender.


    Height: 177cm
    Weight: 65kg
    Age: 19

    Strengths

    - Elite Speed ( Rarely get run down from behind, when I've got the ball and there is a paddock ahead of me that's the perfect situation for me to have the ball in )
    - Crumbing Ability
    - Run down tackling
    - Kicking (nice left foot, I usually know where to put so the player can mark it)
    - Side-step
    - Weaving through traffic ( Don't get caught often and usually get a handpass out if I do)
    - Marking on the lead
    - Play reading ( Been told I'm a good play reader by others)
    - Hands ( can strip the ball from packs)

    Weaknesses
    - Tank
    - Consistency altogether (being mainly outside doesn't help)
    - Inconsistent inside ability
    - Size
    - Toughness ( Not always hard at the ball and sometimes when I have to commit to a pack mark I don't )
    - Shanking ( Despite considering my self a good kick I'm prone to shanking )
    - Snaping ( I've kicked some nice snap goals but struggle to get distance on them)
    - Prefer to corall then tackle ( get caught out when player is a good side-stepper)
    - Spoiling (Not good at spoiling a pack or spoiling opponent on the lead)

    Player Comparrison
    As a forward - Michael Walters (More speed, less scoring power)
    As a Midfielder - Danyle Pearce
    As a Defender - Marley Williams (Better kick, less toughness)

    I haven't player proper club footy for a while but I'll give it a go.

    NotAMagpieBogan

    Played as a Wing and Half forward flank in my 'glory days' at the Cranbourne Junior Football Club
    H: 172cm
    W: 74kg
    A: 16

    Strengths:

    Fairly accurate kick
    Fairly accurate opposite foot kick
    Sort of accurate shot on goal
    Fairly strong for my size
    Can run fairly fast
    Can do a mad Bananananana from the boundary line
    Can take a mad screamer

    Weaknesses:

    I haven't footy in a long time
    I'm as unfit as a Mother******
    I'm short

    Wing/HBF

    Good: Discipline (spoiling from behind, don't give away frees while tackling, backing into packs, don't backchat umps etc), don't usually waste the ball (more because I know my limits and so will choose to retain possession with a short kick which I know I can hit, rather than go for the 45 meter drop between the oppo ruckman and CHB or something...), covering teammates defensively, smothering (out of all things I can nail smothers, 1-2 times a game at least I'll actually catch a smother and keep running)

    Bad: long kicking, vision, intensity, running (speed and endurance), overhead marking, wet weather footy, handballing to others on the run, kicking for goal, don't get the ball much (a few reasons, used to play midfield when I was 12-13 and regularly would rack up handballs all day, but other kids overtook me for size, speed and strength over 14-17 and now I end up as a 10-12 disposals a game player)

    Height: 168cm :(
    Weight: 84kg.

    Broke my ankle 3 years ago and took up bodybuilding which explains the relatively heavy weight to height ratio.

    When I was at peak fitness I was an on-baller. If i decide to have a crack next year I'll most likely be a pocket at either end. I was 67kgs when I was an on baller, so my 84kgs now would come in handy in that regard.

    Strengths

    - Quick.
    - Accurate set shot.
    - Strong base, takes a couple of bigger guys to bring me down due to my strong centre of gravity. Again, that was at 67kgs, so I would think it would be much better now.
    - Strength.

    Weaknesses
    - Fitness. I used to be very, very fit. I can recall my resting heart rate being under 50 at one point.
    - Height, obviously.
    - Talk. I'm a quiet bloke.. I'm first to admit that.

    Scouting Report for Greater Gattsby

    Position Played: Rover/Wing/Full Forward

    Play most like: Kayne Turner
    Height: 175cm
    Weight: 55kg
    Age: 17

    Strengths
    • Vertical jump - For my small size, I often find myself on top of packs.
    • Sprint speed - Love getting the ball in space, burning off a couple of players then kicking from 35 out on the run.
    • Defensive awareness - Always a kick behind the play when the opposition has the ball.
    • Tagging ability - Can shut down a player, but It takes myself out of the game.
    • Physical attack on opposition - Loves laying a big bump and run down tackles from behind.
    • Large tank - Can run out the game.
    • Kicking - Confident on both feet.
    • Can ruck occasionally.
    Weaknesses
    • Weight - I'm scrawny, so I always get looked over for TAC cup. Have had scouts at my games, but they always insist I'm not heavy enough.
    • Unnecessary bumps - Got rubbed out this year for a shirt front
    • Quiet bloke on the field - Instrumental off the field.

    Ah, let's give this a go. :p

    Position Played: Rover as a junior, defensive small forward with the occasional run through the middle now. Had a stint at back pocket in the last game this past season. Didn't end well at all.
    Height: 179cm
    Weight: 69kg
    Age: 20

    Strengths
    Running and recovery: I run a 15.4 beep test and am in the top three sprinters at my club.
    Courage: I copped a spray at training and really worked on it. I have no hesitation going back with the ball or diving into a pack now.
    Good hands: Both on the pick up and marking. Can handball accurately over ten metres on both sides.
    High marking: Good judgement and can get a bit of height on the jump.
    Tougher than I look: Due to my build, I've been cleaned up a fair bit, but I get up and keep running immediately.
    Weaknesses
    Build: I'm pretty wiry, which makes me look more fragile than I am. I think my build probably gave the coach the wrong impression regarding my willingness to get stuck in which meant I didn't get as much game time as I would have liked.
    Consistency: Some days I can just keep running, the ball leaps into my hand, my tackles stick and I can snap goals from the middle of nowhere. Other days I seem out of breath, hopelessly out of position, being shrugged aside and my kicks are shanks.
    Always playing with niggles: Fingers were all busted before the season started, ankles played up throughout the year and I played the last three or four games of the season with stress fractures in my right foot.
    Long kicking: In junior footy I had a massive kick for my age, but a few years lay off has been pretty detrimental to that.
    Kicking on the left: Always been shocking, compounded by ankle injuries. No depth on it, little accuracy and no confidence.
