Logs 36 disposals in win
MEssendon Bombers
August 27, 2020
Merrett logged 36 disposals (15 kicks, 21 handballs) and scored one behind to go with six tackles made during Thursday's 87-71 win over Hawthorn.
Merrett was dominant on the ground to pave the way for the Bombers' highest points tally of the season. As his team inches ever closer to the finals places, Merrett has stepped up in a big way with at least 30 disposals in four of the last five matches.
Decent in loss
MEssendon Bombers
August 17, 2020
Merrett collected 24 disposals (17 kicks, seven handballs) and made five marks during Sunday's 68-33 loss to Saint Kilda.
Merrett is yet another Bombers player who has large swings in production but was still serviceable in this match. With the finals places harder to come by, Merrett will hope to play a more consistent role over the rest of the season.
Logs 30 disposals in draw
MEssendon Bombers
August 12, 2020
Merrett collected 30 disposals (17 kicks, 13 handballs) and made five marks during Wednesday's 73-73 draw with Gold Coast.
Merrett could be a winning ticket with how he's performed lately, as he's logged at least 30 disposals in three of his last four matches. However, in the other result, he couldn't surpass 18 disposals against Brisbane. It could be wise to be careful with Merrett as he may be playing week but is still subject to the inconsistent play of his team.
Game-high ball-getter in loss
MEssendon Bombers
August 7, 2020
Merrett had 33 disposals (19 kicks, 14 handballs), five marks and one tackle in Friday's 59-55 loss to GWS.
Merrett racked up another 33 disposals but it was the Bombers basically giving the game away that will be the real talking point. Leading by as much as 29 points during the third term, Essendon capitulated down the stretch to suffer what could be a crucial loss come the end of the season.
Gets 33 disposals in win
MEssendon Bombers
July 26, 2020
Merrett collected 33 disposals (20 kicks, 13 handballs) to go with nine marks and six tackles during Sunday's 62-59 win over Adelaide.
Merrett was a key part of the victory through this thorough domination of possession. While his value continues to rise, it may be harder to fit Merrett into a lineup when he's barely reached 20 disposals in three of the last four Rounds.
