Robbie Tarrant Season Review
From: Mildura/Bendigo U18
Games - 2012: 16 Goals - 2012: 23
Career: 25 Career: 24
After a big pre-season, Robbie was looking to cement a spot in North’s forward line after nab cup form was good and being injury free after only managing 9 games in 4 seasons. But an average game in round 1 playing alonside Petrie & Edwards saw Robbie dropped straight away where he found enough good form for Werribee to be recalled for round 5 where an 18 possession, 0.2 performance showed how much potential he has. Another okay game against West Coast the following week saw him dropped again, where Scott West (VFL coach) played Taz at both ends to have him gain more experience. After the bye Robbie was recalled to the senior team, where he was never dropped again after superb form that started with 9.8 in a month of football after only having 1 career goal before that month. With Brad Scott going with a 3 man tall attack with Petrie, Tarrant & Hansen this really helped North with there push to the finals, and when Hansen and Petrie weren’t firing Taz would stand up with big bags including goals of 4 x 3 times and 3 x 3 times. But from round 22 onwards, along with North’s team Robbie’s form dropped off having failed to kick any goals in the last 3 weeks, but with another pre-season under his belt and a full season without injuries giving him confidence about his body, Robert will now be able to cement a spot in North’s forward line and continue his good form alongside Drew and Lachie.
