AFL News on Twitter @aflratings


Chris Scott on:

Tom Stewart

“Tom Stewart was juts sensational today.”

“I think he’s the best defender in the game.”

Gryan Miers

“We made a deliberate decision last week to manage him out of the game (started game as sub).”

Tyson Stengle

“Again he had an impact, he played the role we asked him to play.”

“He’s a bit more of a stay at home small forward.”

Tom Atkins

“More than what he does in terms of the contest work and his running power which is pretty good as well, he just adds another dimension in there (midfield).”

“We think he’s building himself into being a well-rounded player.”

Shannon Neale

“Athletically, he’s amazing,”

“At that height (202cm) we think that’s going to him the capacity to play in a number of different positions and be a handful.”

Gary Rohan (hamstring tightness)

“He will be (available next game).”

Rhys Stanley

“Just the ankle is lingering a little bit, I would say likely this week.”

“An hour before the game on Friday night I suspect we’ll make that call.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings


Matthew Nicks on:

Reilly O’Brien

“Really pleased with Reilly, came back in and competed and was part of that midfield group.”

“We’ll continue to have a look at that, whether there’s a possibility of us possibly going 2 rucks.”

Darcy Fogarty

“I thought today he was outstanding, I thought he stood up, gave us exactly what he’s been working on.”

“I believe it was concussion (no confirmation).”

Riley Thilthorpe

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings

Adam Tomlinson

“Is in some really good form (VFL).”

“He’s probably the obvious one (to play next game).”

Christian Petracca

“Trac woke up this morning a bit crook, that was another concern heading into the game.”

“Hopefully he’ll get through that alright the next 24-48 hours and be fine.”

“Clearly he wasn’t at his absolute best.”

“He didn’t quite have the energy that he needed,”

“Second half we played him a fair bit forward because you could see that he just wasn’t having the run and the energy that he would normally have in his game.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings

Elliot Yeo and Dom Sheed

“We won’t be throwing them straight back in.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings


Luke Beveridge on:

Tim English

“He had a tremendous return.”

“He’s a great example of a ruckman in the competition that plays the game extremely well outside of the stoppage, he’s a very good turnover ruckman, he doesn’t just get behind the ball, he’ll spread forward and he’ll link up in chains.”

“He’s adjusted the balance of his defensive mindset and his want to spread forward a little bit this year.”

Cody Weightman

“He’s a courageous aerialist for his size and he had a good return as well.”

Brett Ratten on:

Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera

“He’s very talented Nasiah and we know what he can do with the football, he’s still growing, learning the game, and he did it off a pretty much a limited pre-season as well, he’s still taking big steps.”

Ben Long

“I though Long’s presence in the front half,”

Rowan Marshall

“He’s fine (shoulder).”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings


Michael Voss on:

Jacob Weitering

“We think it will be more on the major end than the minor end (shoulder), he’ll go see the surgeon early this week, we’ll decide whether he has surgery, if it ventures into that space we’re probably more talking more a longer term 5 or 6 weeks.”

Charlie Curnow

“Charlie made the most of his opportunities.”

“Kemp’s played down there (defence to replace Weitering).”

Caleb Marchbank

“He’ll be ready to go post-bye.”

Paddy Dow

“Obviously Matty Kennedy came out (injured) and he slotted straight into that (midfield) role.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings

Mason Cox

“I believe in Mason and today he got to show what he’s capable of.”

“I just love his fight and the way goes about it.”

“His last 5 weeks have been really strong.”

Mason Redman, Matt Guelfi, Jake Stringer, Kyle Langford and Will Snelling

“We’ll get Redman, Guelfi, Stringer at this stage back (post-bye),”

“Probably Langford and Snelling not too far behind after that.”

Andrew Phillips and Sam Draper

“We’ve liked that kind of through the last 5-6 rounds (dual ruck setup).”

“We’ve quite liked the look of having two rucks.”

Darcy Parish

“I think the conditions suit him but he’s certainly been a really strong contributor for us.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings

Trent Dumont
