Bulldogs’ development manager Jamie Maddocks reviews the 12 AFL-listed players who took part in Footscray’s round three win over the Northern Bullants.

Bulldogs’ development manager Jamie Maddocks reviews the 12 AFL-listed players who took part in Footscray’s round three win over the Northern Bullants.

 

Lewis Young

17 disposals, eight marks (four intercepts), three inside-50s

“It was a really good aerial game from ‘Lewy’ – he was able to intercept and spoil most entries coming his way. His game was based on positioning, and he impacted the game on a very high level. It was great to see him bounce back to form like that.”

 

Mitch Wallis

29 disposals (17 handballs), seven handball receives, four inside-50s

“Mitch played majority of time in the midfield, and was very influential in the game. A key feature of his game was his ability to handball with width and send his teammates out into space. His hardness inside and his ability to spread was noticeable. He had a really big impact on the game.”

 

Louis Butler

24 disposals, five marks, five inside-50s, three rebound-50s

“Louis was good again on the wing. He keeps his width really well, and had plenty of involvement. He didn’t get the scoring shots that he would have liked as he has been, but his ability to run both ways up and down the ground and get into both 50-metre arcs was a highlight of his game.”

 

Cody Weightman

19 disposals, 11 marks, two goals

“Cody had a very good game – he was a focal point for us forward. He did spend some time inside, but his time as a forward was important. He took 11 marks, and his ability to hit up, jump from behind and compete was great. He would have loved to have finished a bit better than his two goals, four behinds, but his game was definitely influential.”

Watch some of the best highlights from Footscray's Round 3 victory over the Northern Bullants.

Published on

Jamarra Ugle-Hagan

10 disposals, four marks, one goal

“Jamarra competed really well in front of the ball all day - he was often contending with the +1 standing in front of him. He brought the ball to ground and used his speed to find teammates with a better shot on goal which was really impressive.”

 

Buku Khamis

15 disposals, eight marks (four intercepts), five rebound-50s

“Buku played a really complete game – he ruled the airwaves again with four intercept marks and five spoils. His positioning all day was exceptional, and his ability to tackle and be aggressive at the body is something he’s been working on, so that was great to see. It was a very impressive game from Buku.”

 

Ben Cavarra

15 disposals, four marks, five inside-50s, one goal

“’Cav’ was good again – he was busy in front of the ball helping out the talls to get as best looks as possible. His drop of ball stuff was good and effective. He would’ve liked to hit the scoreboard in a more accurate manner (1.3), but the most important thing is that he is getting the opportunity to score.”

 

Dom Bedendo

Eight disposals, five marks, two inside-50s, three goals

“Dom didn’t have much of the ball, but his impact on the scoreboard was felt. His ability to use his speed to breakaway and create separation from his opponent was a highlight of his game.”

 

Will Hayes

30 disposals, eight marks, four inside-50s, four rebound-50s

“’Hayesy’ again played as a high defender, and positioned himself really well all day. He was influential in terms of disposals and having an impact on the game. His ability to run back from stoppages to outnumber is a key feature of his game.”

 

Roarke Smith

15 disposals, six marks, five tackles

“’Roarkey’ was solid on the wing – it was a hard day for a lateral winger in terms of ball movement, but his ability to be very reliable with the ball and bring that tackle pressure when in defence was great. His source pressure stuff was elite.”

 

Riley Garcia

23 disposals, four marks, five inside-50s, one goal

“Riley was good – he played a mixture of on-ball and forward. He showcased his breakaway acceleration from stoppages and contests with multiple running bounces. His ability to tackle in open-field is a major strength, and to see him hit the scoreboard with that long-running shot was great.”

 

Jordon Sweet

19 disposals, six marks, 38 hit-outs, five inside-50s, one goal

“I was really happy with ‘Sweety’s game. His ability to compete and jump in the centre bounce and around the ground was great. To also get forward and hit the scoreboard, and find some big-man spots to take some marks – it was probably one of his best games of the year.”
