Walsh on target for 50 games from debut of double figure disposals.
Can you believe a kid who hasn't even played 50 games yet, is coming 21st in the league for score involvements, 20th in the league for i50s, 17th in the league for clearances and 5th in the league for average disposals?

Was looking at the AFL stats today and pulled out a few things...

McKay
McKay has the most shots on goal at 51, the more scores with 47 scoring shots which 6 more than the next best (Taylor Walker) and is leading the coleman with 30 goals 17 behind
McKay also leads the competition with the most marks inside 50 in the competition and is equal second for contested marks in the comp, 1 behind Gawn on 20

Midfielders
Walsh 7th highest disposal earner in the competition with 240 possessions with 190 effective (79%) which is also more effective disposals than all of the people with more disposals than him except Macrae and Mitchell
Walsh is 10th for score involvements in the comp with McKay 12th and Cripps 21st
Walsh and Cripps 16th and 17th for clearances in the comp

Surprisings
Cripps with the equal most clangers in the competition on 47 from his 195 disposals (25%)
Cripps 9th for contested possessions - often in the top couple in previous years
Docherty 6th for metres gained in the comp with Saad 20th and a 1000 less metres
Surprisingly no-one in the top 25 for turnovers in the competition although Ed is 26th and Saad 41st and Fogarty 45th
Pittonet 3rd for total hit outs and 4th to advantage
Pittonet is 1st in the comp for score launches with 21

Weitering & Jones
Weitering is 1st in the comp for One Percenters with 85 and Jones 9th with 57
Weitering is 1st in the comp for Contested Defence One on Ones with 50 (6 more than 2nd) and Jones is 4th with 43
Weitering is 2nd in the comp for Contested Defence losses at 18% whilst number 1 is Jones at 14%!
Weitering is 2nd for spoils, 2 behind Dougal Howard on 78. Jones is 11th on 50 spoils
Jones 1st for intercept marks and Weitering 11th (37 and 21)
Jones 3rd for intercept possessions and Weitering 6th (75 and 66)

Other Stats
Cunners over the last 4 games (despite only playing 3) is the 22nd best player in the comp according to AFL Stats Pro. Show's he's really having an influence on games. Weitering is 27th int he last month also.
Walsh is 23rd year to date across the competition.



Summary, there is no better key position pairing than Weitering and Jones. Weitering is clearly better playing man on man with more spoils and one percenters whilst Jones strength is his intercepting althoug still very good 1on1. McKay is the most dominant tall forward in the competition right now with his goal kicking, marking on the lead and contested marking a key reason. Walsh is brilliant at everything and one of the in-form midfielders of the competition right now and is balanced across all metrics (including ones i didn't mention. Pittonet is surprisingly fairing far better numerically than the eye test is telling us and should stay in the team with TDK partnering him rather than replacing him. Crippa is struggling :(

Makes you think why are we were we are. Is it because we’ve played 4 of the top 8 sides. All losses. I think it’s a tactical team approach that is costing us as well as our line coaches don’t really have a cohesive plan defensively. Things are definitely looking up. Next year should be better with our depth coming back and full preseasons into a few that should be best 22:
Newman
Williamson
TDK
Curnow
Ramsay
Kemp
Honey
Durdin
Carroll
Marchbank (probably won’t see him for awhile)
