September 12, 2020
Shiel scored one behind to go with 24 disposals (15 kicks, nine handballs) to go with five tackles and four marks from Saturday's 79-29 loss to Port Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Shiel was a ble to get his hands on the footy but he and his teammates were outmatched by the league leaders in the difficult conditions of a rainy night. Though not the most consistent, Shiel is still capable of good performances as he's logged no fewer than 20 disposals over his last four Rounds.

Collects 29 disposals in loss
MEssendon Bombers
August 17, 2020
Shiel collected 29 disposals (14 kicks, 15 handballs) while also making four marks and completing five tackles during Sunday's 68-33 loss to Saint Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Shiel had to put in most of the work with the Bombers dealing with a host of injuries to their front line. While this match was indicative of his talents, Shiel either dominates with nearly 30 disposals or barely reaches 20, which makes it harder to predict what he'll do on a weekly basis.
Collects 26 disposals in draw
MEssendon Bombers
August 12, 2020
Shiel scored one behind and collected 26 disposals (16 kicks, 10 handballs) and made six clearances during Wednesday's 73-73 draw with Gold Coast.
ANALYSIS
Shiel is far from a consistent player and it could explain why the Bombers have yet to join the top eight, though they did make an impressive comeback just to get the draw. It's truly hard to know what to expect from Shiel since he hadn't topped 20 disposals over is past three matches but also has season highs of 35 disposals and nine clearances back in Round One.
Clear of suspension
MEssendon Bombers
July 28, 2020
Shiel has served his two-match suspension for a high-impact hit on North Melbourne's Curtis Taylor.
ANALYSIS
Shiel will thus be available for this week's match versus Brisbane and should retake his spot in the Bombers' midfield. Shiel has some sizable efforts under his belt this season, making him an intriguing fantasy play on a weekly basis.
Two-match ban upheld
MEssendon Bombers
Suspension
July 14, 2020
Shiel (suspension) had his two-match ban upheld following his appeal at the AFL tribunal, Marc McGowan of AFL Media reports.
ANALYSIS
Shiel's bump resulted in North Melbourne's Curtis Taylor leaving for a concussion test and a subsequent scan Monday for a potential broken jaw. Fortunately, both issues returned clean, though the scan results weren't available in time for Shiel's tribunal. With the next two rounds off the table, Shiel will be looking at a return to action as the calendar flips from July to August.
Appealing two-match ban
MEssendon Bombers
Suspension
July 13, 2020
Shiel received a two-match suspension for engaging in rough conduct in Saturday's 67-53 win over North Melbourne. He will appeal the ban Tuesday at the AFL tribunal, according to Shayne Hope of 7News.com.au.
ANALYSIS
The AFL levied the two-game suspension after it was determined that Shiel made a high-impact hit on North Melbourne's Curtis Taylor during Saturday's win. However, with Taylor being cleared of a potential face fracture following an MRI, Shiel and Essendon plan to argue that the suspension should be reduced. If Shiel's appeal is successful, he would still be forced to miss Essendon's Round 7 match versus Western on Friday before returning to action July 25 against Adelaide in Round 8.
