Re: Jim Park Voting 2023 AFL Rd 23 Carlton vs Gold Coast Reply #15 – August 27, 2023, 04:08:51 pm AFL Rd 23: Carlton vs Gold Coast at Gold CoastWe haven’t traditionally played well on the Gold Coast, so winning is a positive. Winning from so far behind is a huge positive. Getting so far behind was not so good.Team: BVotes:[2.5] Charlie Curnow[1.5] George Hewett[1.5] Nic Newman[1.5] Jacob Weitering Sam Docherty Zac Fisher Blake Acres Paddy Dow Jack Martin Jesse Motlop[0.5] Adam Saad[0.5] Brodie Kemp[0.5] Patrick Cripps[0.5] Ed CurnowExplanations:[2.5] Charlie Curnow: Probably the difference between winning and losing. He changed the game.[1.5] George Hewett: A strong game from George; 23 possessions, 10 tackles and 4 clearances.[1.5] Nic Newman: Another great game in defence. 31 possessions from the back half![1.5] Jacob Weitering: Dominated his position and provided drive from defence. Sam Docherty: Another typical Doc game. He keeps getting the pill and putting his body on the line. Zac Fisher: Another solid game from Fisher in defence. Blake Acres: Probably deserves more than 1 vote, but he is brilliant early and tends to drift out of the game. Paddy Dow: Very solid, especially after a slow start. Jack Martin: Could have had 4 or 5. Showed it meant something. Jesse Motlop: Exciting.[0.5] Adam Saad: Solid in defence and setting up forward thrusts.[0.5] Brodie Kemp: A very solid game in defence.[0.5] Patrick Cripps: Clearly injured, although he had half of his possessions in the first quarter. 8 tackles and 3 clearances shows his metal.[0.5] Ed Curnow: 7 possessions in the last quarter was pretty good.Honourable Mentions:Matt Owies: Not a lot of the ball, but a couple of crucial goals and some good defensive effort.Harry McKay: A bit rusty, but worked into the game.Alex Cincotta: Solid across half back again.
