Who do you think Subiaco's best six performers were in 2012?
We’ve compiled our six and reflected on their performance across the season.
1. Aidan Parker:
Parker had arguably the best year of his stellar 11-year career. Playing mostly across centre-half back and sometimes moving into the ruck, Parker averaged just under 25 touches a game. Parker carried the captaincy admirably for the third straight season and played his 200th game for Subiaco.
2. Jason Bristow
An in and under player, Bristow was at the bottom of the packs almost all year as has come to be expected from the recruit. Bristow averaged just under 20 touches a game in 2012.
3. Rob Forrest:
Forrest was a revelation in 2012. After spending the majority of his 92 games in defence, Forrest moved into the midfield with great effect. He mostly played run-with roles but began to find the ball himself and had a period between rounds 12-15 where he gathered 26, 25, 26 and 31 disposals respectively.
4. Clancy Wheeler
One of the most versatile names on the team, Wheeler can play at centre-half back, centre-half forward and in the ruck and he did so in 2012. Wheeler averaged 15 possessions and seven hit outs a game this season.
5. Rhett Kerr
An Esperance product, Kerr has quickly elevated himself to the top echelon of Subiaco players in his 65-game career. Kerr is a mid-sized midfielder and the fittest of the Subiaco midfield. Kerr rarely wasted a possession in season 2012.
6. George Hampson
A revelation last season when he won the reserves Best and Fairest, Hampson has taken his game to a new level in 2012. A natural aerobic athlete he can run all day and played both on a wing and a half-forward flank. A creative player Hampson has good sense around goal and that showed with 22 goals for the season, which is more than one a game.
