AFL 2017 Round 18 - Collingwood v West Coast

Jack Redden applied 28 pressure acts against the Saints

West Coast suffered a devastating eight-point loss to St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, unable to withstand a late Saints charge.

We dissect the key statistics from the match.

531, 7…Shannon Hurn’s metres gained and intercept possessions. The skipper stood up in defence throughout the contest, once again leading from the front.

5…goals kicked by Josh Kennedy. Even though he isn’t thinking about, it must be acknowledged the reigning Coleman medallist is just two goals behind the current leader Joe Daniher, despite the Eagle missing six weeks.

28…Jack Redden pressure acts. The 26-year-old cracked in at the coalface and impacting the contest.

102…Champion Data Ranking Points calculated for Jeremy McGovern. The utility was influential in defence and attack, playing whichever role the team needed him to.

7…Sam Mitchell clearances. In potentially his last game in Victoria, the four-time premiership player utilised his footy nous to clear the ball in the Eagles’ favour throughout the day.

19…points scored from kick-ins for West Coast. This highlights the proficiency in which Adam Simpson’s men were able to transfer the ball from one end of the ground to the other.

21…uncontested possessions amassed by Andrew Gaff. The indefatigable wingman put in his usual dose of work and was rewarded with plenty of the Sherrin.

88…Elliot Yeo’s disposal efficiency percentage. Whenever the ball was in the hands of the former Lion, he was able to hit the target more often than not.

10…first quarter disposals collected by Dom Sheed. The Kalgoorlie product has been able to prove his wits in the midfield and continues his rapid rate of development.

9.0km/h…Luke Partington’s average moving speed. In just his second game, Partington was the quickest player in general play, injecting the Eagles with an element of speed.
