Jamie McNamara a 183cm, 81kg midfielder made his AFL debut in 2007. He was recruited from East Fremantle and now plays for the West Coast Eagles. He was born in 1988.
After this week's round of matches, we must ask whether there's any point in us playing out the season. Is there any team that can challenge the Cats in September?
Injury-ravaged Adelaide couldn't match it with Port on Sunday, losing by 12 points. The loss meant the Crows dropped out of the 8, and are now a chance to miss the finals.
In his return match, McLeod was tagged out of the match by Kane Cornes. McLeod finished with 11 disposals, but had very little influence.
Jericho was brought into the team to replace the injured Brett Burton, but based on his performance, he may not be around for long. He had 4 kicks and no goals, and will be lucky to stay in the squad for next week's match.
The Lions easily accounted for West Coast on Saturday night with a 46 point demolition of cellar-dwellers. They now sit comfortably in the 8 but now face Richmond next week, with the Tiger's playing for their season.
The Brisbane debutant had a dream first game amassing an amazing 32 possessions after starting the game ahead of Simon Black. Dalziell was taken with pick 52 in 2007, and had been accumulating similar stats in the reserves prior to this game. As long as this streak continues, Dalziell should keep his spot in the seniors.
The burly Lion's ruckman had the misfortune of matching up against the league's number 1 bigman, Dean Cox. Charman, without usual backup Matthew Leuenberger, was comprehensively beaten. If it weren't for his 3 goals, it could have looked much worse.
Carlton lost a close one to Sydney going down 121 to 119 on Sunday. Again, it was a tale of two halves as Carlton built a 16 point lead at half-time, only to be overrun in the second half.
The Carlton forward put aside contract talk to kick 5 goals for the Blues. But it was a different Fevola who took to the field, as he got involved in more team oriented plays. After the game, Fevola spoke on 3AW about a self-imposed move up the ground to open up the Carlton forward line. It almost worked for the Blues, but they still need a second forward option to capitalise.
Back for his first game of the season after shoulder surgery, Walker contributed 18 possessions as well as a goal. He didn't star for the Blues, but fans should just be content that he got through unscathed. And he should get better each week.
Collingwood has blown a major chance to jump into the top 4 after losing to the Kangaroos 114-96 on Friday night. The Pies went into the half-time break with a 13 point lead, but with key players Travis Cloke, Dale Thomas and Heath Shaw having off nights, weren't able to match it.
Davis, who has been one of Collingwood's shining stars this season, was a late withdrawal. Monitor his progress this week, but he should be back in the team for the match against Essendon.
Shaw had a tremendous start with 17 possessions in the first half, but again struggled with some bad kicking. However like many of his teammates, he went missing after half-time gathering only two more possessions.
The Bomber's four match winning streak was broken in a close one against Richmond. A further three injuries must surely end the possibility of the red and black being part of September.
The star Essendon midfielder continued his fine form with 27 possessions, but is desperately seeking some help from his teammates.
The Essendon veteran again had a pleasing game chipping in with 3 goals to follow his 5 from last round. Lucas laid out his contender for goal of the year with a freakish mid-air soccer goal in the third term.
The Dockers faced Melbourne in a clash for the spoon, and came out easy 46 point victors.
Pavlich starred for the Dockers scoring 5 majors to go with 28 possessions and 9 marks. This week's effort brings his goal tally to 59 for the year and he ranks 20th in the league for total marks.
Gary who? Geelong showed they are still premiership favourites after demolishing the Bulldogs by 61 points at Skilled Stadium. Geelong's depth was tested pre-game with Ablett, Ling and Wojcinski missing through injury. However with a midfield comprising of Bartel, Enright, Selwood and Corey, there was more than adequate cover.
The underrated defender was in white hot form in the first quarter racking up a record 19 disposals. He was quieter for the rest of the game but still finished with 32 disposals. His along with Matthew Scarlett (who also finished with 32 possessions), were the catalyst for many Geelong attacks.
The nuggetty forward had a frustrating start giving away a 100m penalty that resulted in a Farren Ray goal. To his credit he regained his focus and finished with 24 disposals and 7 tackles.
The Hawks failed to capitalise on a golden opportunity to move to second on the ladder after losing to the Saints on Saturday night. The Hawks led at half-time but were unable to match it with St Kilda who stormed home in the second half. The Hawks face another tough matchup in Geelong on Friday night.
Like many of his teammates, Luke Hodge started the game in fine form, but disappeared in the second half. He'll have a tougher task ahead of him next week against Geelong.
The good news is that Buddy didn't kick any behinds, the bad news is he only kicked 3 goals. A tantalising matchup is coming up for footy fans with Franklin due to take on fullback Matthew Scarlett this week.
The Kangaroos had as much to play for on Friday as Collingwood and it showed. They bounced back into the 8 with a well-fought 18 point win, which was setup with strong second half.
Both teams were missing their number 1 ruckman, but it was Petrie who stood up with 11 marks and 26 hit-outs. He dominated the night against Chris Bryan and Cameron Wood in a best on ground performance.
The little maestro was his usual self on Friday with 14 kicks, 13 handballs and 9 inside-50s. The stat that stands out was his 14 bounces, but then again do we ever expect Harvey to stand still when he's got the ball?
After kicking 5 goals to none in the first quarter, the Dees capitulated to eventually lose by 46 points to Fremantle. Expect a few more drubbings before the seasons out as Melbourne try to hold onto last place.
Very few players stood out for the Demons, although Chris Johnson probably was the pick of the bunch. He had 25 possessions and 9 marks, although most came in the first half. In his last three games, Johnson has averaged 27 disposals and 8 marks.
In slippery conditions, the Power accounted for the Crows by 12 points. The Power are now playing for pride, and will take a win over their hometown rivals any day.
There were many Port midfielders who played good games, but Cassisi stood out with his 26 disposals and 13 tackles.
The Tiger's slim finals hopes were kept alive after holding off the Bombers by 4 points. With Matthew Richardson close to returning, the next month could be an interesting one for Richmond fans.
After being dropped earlier in the season, Bowden has found himself back in the seniors and making the most of it. Bowden finished with 17 possessions, but his impact on the game will be remembered for the 2 controversial rushed behinds in the dieing minute of the game. The Tiger's escaped with the win, but it could have easily been a different story.
Foley has made a name for himself this season as a star in his own right after playing in the Legend's match. He amassed 31 possessions against the Bombers to be best afield.
The Saint's went into Saturday's match against Hawthorn as the underdogs and in the first half it showed. To their credit, they fought back for a famous 30 point victory.
The Saint's skipper had a blinder of a second half, finishing the game with a match-winning 11 marks and 6 goals. Riewoldt hasn't been a great goalkicker for the Saint's this season, but stood up in their biggest game of the year. That's a sign of a champion.
The Saint's have struggled to fill the ruck position for many seasons, and King was brought in during the off-season as a stop-gap. At times this year, King has struggled to make much of an impact, and last night was no exception. The Saint's started the second half with part-timer Jason Blake in the middle, and Blake was the catalyst for their third quarter fightback.
The Swans cemented their place in the top 4 with a close two point win over the Blues. After trailing for most of the game, the Swans came home in the last quarter.
O'Keefe worked hard all day to finish with 3 goals, 29 disposals and 10 marks. He setup many ventures inside 50 and also setup two other goals. O'Keefe is one of the most dangerous small forwards going round, and today was no exception.
The veteran ruckman is on the downside of his career, but spent more time on the ground than usual. He finished with 16 hitouts, and played well, but is no longer the player he once was.
After matching Geelong for three quarters, the Bulldogs were overrun in the final term. The Dogs could only manage one goal in the last, compared to the Cats' 8. They take on the Blues in round 17.
The ever reliable defender was again one of the Dog's best with 21 possessions, but there were few highlights for the Bulldogs from the game.
Another week, another drubbing. This time the Eagle's travelled to Brisbane and left 46 point losers.
The young Eagle was matched up on Simon Black, and while Black had 27 possessions, McNamara himself collected 21. McNamara is one of many youngsters who should have a bigger impact in 2009.
Another of the West Coast youngsters, MacKenzie had dangerous Lion's forward Daniel Bradshaw for much of the night. Bradshaw kicked four goals, but MacKenzie showed enough determination and effort to please coach Worsfold.
