WAFL Watch – Forwards
Kepler Bradley (WP) – 21 disposals (13 kicks, 8 handballs), 10 marks, 1 goal
Kepler played key forward and ruck and he ran really well. The good thing about his running was his multiple leading, which was rewarded with 10 marks. The majority of those came when he was playing as a key forward, leading hard at the ball. His ball handling was good below his knees and he made himself difficult to defend because of his work-rate.
Michael Walters (SD) – 17 disposals (12 kicks, 5 handballs), 4 marks, 1 goal
Michael played high forward and had six effective inside 50 kicks. He showed strong pressure on the ball carrier and we were happy with his effort, work-rate and temperament. He showed he’s got great composure and always has a lot of time when he’s got the ball in his hands.
Gavin Roberts (P Reserves) – 24 disposals (15 kicks, 9 handballs), 8 marks, 1 goal
It was a really solid hit out from Gavin. He played as a high forward then moved on to the ball. He ended up kicking 1.4 but should have had at least three goals to his name. He ran some good patterns both defensively and offensively, and showed some real explosiveness. He showed through his performance that he is clearly a step above reserves level, which he used to his advantage and broke into space on the counter-attack and accelerated away from congestion when he won the possession.
