He was well supported by teenage defender Jacob Dawson (30 touches and six tackles) and rookie midfielder Brad Sheer (27 disposals and eight tackles).

This weekend: Redland v GWS Giants - Saturday, June 15, 11.30am, Jack Esplen Oval

Daniel Lloyd responded strongly to his axing from the Giants' AFL line-up with an assured showing in a 10-point NEAFL win over Redlands.

Lloyd, who has played 10 AFL games this year, won a team-high 14 possessions in first half and finished with 25 touches, along with two goals, one of which was a beauty on the run from long range near the boundary.

State league affiliate: Box Hill Hawks (VFL)
This weekend: Essendon v Box Hill Hawks - Saturday, June 15, 2pm, Windy Hill

Former captain Jarryd Roughead was upstaged by two younger key forwards in Box Hill Hawks' 10-point loss to Essendon.

Making his fifth successive VFL appearance, the 32-year-old didn't enhance his chances of an AFL recall, managing just 10 touches and going goalless for the second game in a row.

He was largely a spectator while youthful key forwards Jackson Ross and Mitch Lewis did the bulk of the scoring.

The untried Ross bagged four of the Hawks' nine goals, taking his season tally to 23 from eight games, while Lewis showed some promising signs after being dropped, tallying 2.2 from five kicks and seven marks.

Veteran midfielder Brad Ebert (22 touches) got through the match unscathed in his return from a month out with concussion.

Fellow veteran Jake Carlisle (15 disposals and seven marks) got through his first game back from injury unscathed, while young gun Nick Coffield impressed with 21 disposals.

There were concerns for boom teenager Max King when he left the game early with a knee injury, but those fears were allayed later on Sunday when initial scans came back positive.

King had booted an early goal in the contest, but failed to return to the ground after the collision and was sent for scans on his troublesome knee.
