Mid-year review: Individual stats

As the Western Bulldogs take a break for the bye, let’s take a lot at who’s leading the way in some key statistical areas.

No surprises here – Jack Macrae leads the Bulldogs’ disposal tally. No player in the competition has had more of the footy.

Macrae and skipper Marcus Bontempelli sit among the Bulldogs’ top three in every category that requires winning or using the ball.

Metres gained? Tick. Clearances? Tick. Inside 50s? Tick. Score involvements? Tick.

When it comes to the contest, Tom Liberatore is king.

He’s cracked a ton already when it comes to clearances and leads the competition in that statistic.

Liberatore is also the Bulldogs’ top tackler and contested possession winner.

Tom Liberatore – 102
Jack Macrae – 73

In the air, Aaron Naughton is the man.

He has taken 94 marks for the season, more than 20 better than the Bulldogs’ next best.

More than a third of those marks have been contested – and three of them have earned Mark Of The Year nominations.

Defensively, if anyone’s the chief, it’s Alex Keath.

When it comes to intercepts, he’s the top Dog, and it’s the same with one-percenters.

Remarkably, he’s spent more than two hours extra on the ground than any other teammate – and only two players in the competition have played more minutes than Keath in 2021.

Forward-turned-defender Bailey Dale is also a standout, collecting plenty of the ball and being influential with rebounds and intercepts.

Intercepts
Alex Keath – 87
Bailey Dale – 71
Taylor Duryea – 68
Hayden Crozier – 48
Bailey Williams – 47
