Par is simply what they have been capable of in the past for some, for others (aging players) somewhere near there best. Hurley for example has been very good, maybe even better then his all Australian year. Hooker has been par for mine, been pretty good in a new role for him.
Colyer started well but has been pretty average for a while now.
Watson I didn't expect brownlow winning form but he is not even a shaddow on that.
Stants I expected him to at least be still holding a spot in the side, his gone from been tagged most weeks to not even getting a game.
Hocking to be on the fringe of selection which he not.
Howlett about what I expected, he has never been brilliant but he is on the fringe.
Heppel I expected him to start where he left off in time (by now). He has shown great quarters, and a couple of good games.
But for the most part very inconsistent.
Its a huge ask for them to have to come back after what they have gone through and the deserved far better. What I am calling par is high expectation thats for sure. The saga has, and certainly still is taking its toll on these players. twelve months is a long time out of footy especially under those circumstances
