Geoff Walsh

A challenge was put forward to Patrick Veszpremi during last pre-season to add a more defensive component to his game to compliment his natural football talent. While the new mentality and added flexibility in his role took some adjusting, he made headway at both VFL and AFL level. The Sydney Swans recruit has shown he has flair and skill but the onus is on him to continue to become a more accountable player.

 

Season By Season

He strung together eight senior games this season – two more than his previous best six games in 2008 – and demonstrated that his talents can be utilised at either end of the ground. Averaging a career high 15.5 disposals this season – an increase of almost four disposals per game on last year - his disposal efficiency of 75% was also a great improvement on previous seasons – up 6% on 2011.

Season By Season

The former Swan came to Whitten Oval hoping to re-ignite his career, but did not make his debut with the Dogs until round 22. Showed what he is capable of with 19 disposals, seven marks and two goals against Fremantle in round 24. Has worked tirelessly on his endurance over the summer and will been to display the skills that made him a first round pick in 2007.
