Player reviews for the 2017 season

Matthew Allen[edit | edit source]

(WAFL: 2 games, 6 goals; WAFL reserves: 2 games, 2 goals) Season was a virtual write-off after he missed the first month with a hamstring injury, then managed just two senior WAFL games before succumbing to a stress fracture in the foot, although those two games both yielded a three-goal haul for the young forward.

(AFL: 9 games, 0 goals; WAFL: 5 games, 0 goals) Started the season outside the senior team, eventually forced his way in to play nine games before injuring his hamstring, then underwent shoulder surgery that ended his season and ultimately his career. (Retired)

(AFL: 4 games, 0 goals; WAFL: 10 games, 0 goals; WAFL reserves: 1 game, 0 goals) Suffered a setback after a decent pre-season campaign, missing a month with a quad injury. Recovered to be a solid performer in the backline at WAFL level and managed to add four senior games mid-season.

Jamie Cripps[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 21 games, 26 goals) Played his 100th AFL game early in the year but suffered an ankle injury several weeks later, and although he was able to return earlier than expected he failed to recapture his best form for the rest of the season.

Jack Darling[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 23 games, 43 goals) Continued to provide an effective foil to Kennedy, with the pair kicking more goals than any other duo in the league. Struggled for form mid-season in Kennedy's absence and following complications in the birth of his first child, but rebounded to earn life membership during the finals.

Liam Duggan[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 20 games, 4 goals; WAFL: 3 games, 0 goals) Had a slow start to the season after being forced to earn a spot in the senior side and getting only limited midfield minutes, but a move to the backline against Geelong after the bye sparked a massive improvement.

Andrew Gaff[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 24 games, 6 goals) Played every game and continued to rack up plenty of possession - over 100 more than any of his teammates - but his impact on games was not as great as previous years.

Jonathan Giles[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 5 games, 1 goal; WAFL: 12 games, 6 goals) Expected to have an increased role due to the club's ruck woes, played five senior games early in the season in partnership with Vardy but was dropped when the pairing proved too immobile. Hampered by a degenerative knee condition for much of the year that eventually forced his retirement. (Retired)

(AFL: 23 games, 0 goals) Dependable as ever in his third season as skipper. Had some big games in the second half of the year including a Glendinning Medal-winning performance in the final Western Derby to be played at Subiaco.

Lewis Jetta[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 15 games, 9 goals; WAFL: 6 games, 1 goals) Struggled early and had an extended run at East Perth, but once recalled he finally began to show the scintillating running for which he was recruited. Continued to fade out of games at times but also had some big moments, in particular in extra-time of the Elimination Final.

(AFL: 6 games, 6 goals; WAFL: 13 games, 6 goals) Found his way into the senior side mid-season and played six games, including an eye-catching three goal game against the Bulldogs. Received a new deal for 2018 and was in the mix for selection during the finals series.

Josh Kennedy[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 19 games, 69 goals) Narrowly missed out on a third straight Coleman Medal despite missing five games with a calf injury mid-season. Kicked 30 goals in his first six games back to re-take the lead but ended up in second place on the league's goalkicking table. Was named vice-captain of the All-Australian team as a mark of the esteem he is held in league-wide.

Tom Lamb[edit | edit source]

(WAFL: 18 games, 21 goals) The forgotten man, was used in a number of roles at East Perth with varying success but was rarely in the mix for senior selection apart from one late-season trip to Sydney as a traveling emergency.

Mark LeCras[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 19 games, 32 goals) Still capable of turning a match but that was rarely on show. Went goalless for a month and was troubled by a nagging hip injury, but still finished third in the club's goalkicking.

Scott Lycett[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 1 game, 0 goals; WAFL: 4 games, 1 goal) After an interrupted pre-season following knee surgery, injured his shoulder in a WAFL practice match. Managed to return to play a handful of games for East Perth and one AFL game, but suffered complications in his shoulder that necessitated further surgery and an early end to his season.

Daniel Venables[edit | edit source]

(WAFL: 8 games, 9 goals; WAFL reserves: 2 games, 3 goals) After spending much of the pre-season recovering from a pre-existing foot injury, made a series of eye-catching appearances for East Perth, playing primarily in the forward line. Was reportedly set for a senior debut before suffering a case of "turf toe" that, although initially expected to keep him out for a few weeks, eventually ruled him out of the entire second half of the season.

(WAFL: 13 games, 1 goal; WAFL reserves: 2 games, 1 goal) Caught the eye in the pre-season with some promising performances during the JLT series, and looked a chance at promotion from the rookie list before suffering an ankle injury that halted his momentum.
