Who will step forward?


How hard is it to find forwards of the highest quality? According to the AFL's chief statisticians, only seven clubs have them.

If, as Alastair Clarkson has suggested, teams have a more attacking bent this season, having focused more on their defensive mantra in recent years, supporters will undoubtedly hope that means forwards will be encouraged to do what they do best.

Extrapolated to where this has the greatest impact, on the scoreboard, that should mean there will be more goals kicked, with elite forwards prospering from a more attacking style up the field.

It wouldn't surprise me if big Jakey Carlisle plays forward and kicks a few snags.  

But this raises the question of whether there are enough elite forwards to capitalise, as classified by the AFL's statisticians, Champion Data.


According to last year's figures, 11 teams did not boast a player who met elite classification as a forward. An elite player falls in the top 10 per cent for his position.

This annual classification is always debatable. For instance, Collingwood's Travis Cloke was not considered elite, being deemed only an above-average player last season. But as one club football department figure said, the All-Australian would “walk into any team, as simple as that”.

Cloke was the leading target inside 50 throughout the 2013 season, taking 25 more marks than any other player. He finished with 68 goals, and was runner-up in the Coleman Medal behind Jarryd Roughead. But as Fairfax Media pointed out last month, his inability to consistently convert in front of goal has dented his value.

In terms of goalkicking accuracy, Cloke finished with 68.51, at 57.1 per cent accuracy. This compares with Hawthorn's Roughead, who finished the year with 72.34 (67.9 per cent). Greater Western Sydney's Jeremy Cameron, with 62.27, was even better at 69.7 per cent.

Cameron, the emerging young superstar, was also a shock omission from the elite bracket, deemed only an average performer despite his All-Australian selection. Champion Data pointed out that his body “is still developing and he will become an even more dominant forward when he gets better at one-on-one contests”, having won only 19 per cent – the fourth-lowest percentage of the top 50 forwards.

With this year's No. 1 pick Tom Boyd and a fit Jonathon Patton working alongside him, Cameron has every chance of becoming elite this season.

If Essendon is to emerge as a premiership threat under Mark Thompson and end its recent history of struggling late in the season, the Bombers will probably need at least a couple of above average forwards. They did not have an elite forward last season, with only medium-tall Jason Winderlich considered above average. Former Cat Paul Chapman, considered above average, will also help should he remain fit.

Michael Hurley was deemed average, and will switch to defence this season, having admitted he was uncomfortable leading for the ball as a forward. Swingman Jake Carlisle, impressive in his stints forward last season, is tipped to spend considerable time inside attacking 50. Then, there is the lanky Joe Daniher, an emerging superstar.

Hurley likes what the Bombers will offer up forward. “Hopefully big Joe can snag a few. Jason Winderlich has been flying on the [training] track along with 'Chappy',” he said. “Those two will be a good avenue towards goal. And it wouldn't surprise me if big Jakey Carlisle plays forward and kicks a few snags as well. It's a different sort of set-up, but pretty exciting.”

By comparison, premier Hawthorn and grand finalist Fremantle had three elite forwards apiece. But having an elite forward doesn't necessarily guarantee success, depending on a club's interpretation of what success is.

Preliminary finalist Sydney has two elite forwards – superstar recruit Lance Franklin and veteran Adam Goodes – but the latter was not seen after round 13 last year because of injury.

Geelong, also a preliminary finalist, did not have an elite forward last year, with the zippy Steven Motlop the highest ranked, as above average. Tom Hawkins and Nathan Vardy were average but, as is the case with Cloke, each would find a spot in just about every rival side.

At Carlton, hopes of kicking a big score would again appear to lay with veteran forward Jarrad Waite. He was considered above average last season, despite managing only 14 games, but has been tipped by Champion Data to slip this season. So important was Waite that he contributed to 23 per cent of scores – ranked second at the club behind Chris Judd – despite being moved into defence against Richmond and Essendon late in the campaign. Waite returned to the forward line for the finals.

Lachie Henderson endured a strong year at either end of the ground and was the only player in the league to defend 50 one-on-one contests and be an attacking target on 50 occasions.

Carlton director of coaching Robert Wiley said coach Mick Malthouse would adopt a “horses for courses” approach with the pair.

“He [Henderson] proved last year that he is the modern-day swingman and he can play at both ends, and very successfully,” Wiley said. “I think it's horses for courses. Mick really coaches that way. He likes to see the opposition and where they are vulnerable.

“Jarrad Waite kicked seven goals in the one game [against Essendon], a couple of weeks later he was playing down back. The most important thing is they know their roles, they can play at both ends.”

On paper at least, the Demons have a forward line that could torment many a rival. Only Jeremy Howe was considered above average last season but a fit Mitch Clark has the ability to leap into that category. With Chris Dawes and rookie Jesse Hogan also roaming inside 50, the Demons will hope at least one marking tall emerges as a consistent threat.

Clark hopes the Demons forwards can trouble rivals with their flexibility. “I have got no doubt that we can all work together and hopefully cause some headaches,” he said.

“I am sure I will play different roles at different times and so will the other guys. I think that's a good thing about the forward line – we are all pretty flexible and can play different roles.”

According to Champion Data, Gold Coast did not have one elite forward – but that can be misleading. Gary Ablett, naturally, was considered elite but he was classified as a midfielder. But he is also an elite forward, and said over summer he would spend more time inside the attacking 50 this season, adding greater polish to an emerging set-up.

Richmond had four above-average forwards but, really, that could be considered five when skipper Trent Cotchin is shifted out of the middle.

The Western Bulldogs, surprisingly, had four above-average forwards and would appear to be even more potent this year with the inclusion of Stewart Crameri. But they will need Shaun Higgins and Jarrad Grant, recovering from injury, to regain their fitness early in the new campaign.

North Melbourne had key tall Drew Petrie as an elite target, with coach Brad Scott this week adding some weight to Clarkson's prediction, declaring the Kangaroos would maintain their attacking backbone after a season in which defensive lapses cost the team a series of victories.

  • This article highlights the problem of trusting statistics in place of judgement. Angus Monfries and Chris Mayne being classed as 'elite' while Travis Cloke is only 'above average' and Jeremy Cameron 'average' is ridiculous renders such classifications useless.

    The current obsession with data seems to overlook the fact that the AFL is a small competition which evolves at an extremely fast pace and the potential for errors in any data set is extremely high.

    • Michael Walters is certainly an elite forward - good on him, the kid is in a class of his own.

      • Angus Monfies elite....Aaaron Edwards and Shaun Higgins above average...and Jeremy Cameron neither! Please...I know who 99.99% of football people would have in their team any day of the week. Meaningless piffle.
