Game-high 34 touches, seven marks
MEssendon Bombers
August 15, 2021
Parish compiled 34 disposals, seven marks, six clearances and a single behind and tackle each Sunday as Essendon defeated Gold Coast 98-30 at GHMBA Stadium.
Parish topped 30 disposals for the third time in five showings to finish the match leader in touches and fell just one mark short of teammate Nick Hind's game-high eight on Saturday. The 24 year-old midfielder also registered more than five clearances for a third-consecutive showing in the win. Parish is now averaging 96.3 fantasy points per game played in the month of August and currently finds himself ranked the AFL's No. 20 in AFL fantasy scoring per showing (107.43).
Excels in win

July 18, 2021
Parish recorded 34 disposals (17 kicks, 17 handballs) in addition to making six marks and six tackles during Sunday's 92-74 win over Essendon in Round 18.
Parish had an off day in Round 17 but turned things around with another masterful display that led his team in fantasy points scored. While Zach Merrett may beat him in disposals on occasion, Parish could be considered the more valuable of the two given how high his celling is and how infrequent his bad games are.
Signs contract extension

July 6, 2021
Parish signed a two-year contract extension with Essendon on Tuesday.
Parish has done nothing but smash records this season and if it weren't for better finishing in the attack, he may have pushed them into the finals as well. With over 40 disposals in two of his last four games, there isn't much to worry about in Parish's production as long as he stays healthy, now that he's tied himself to the Bombers for two more seasons.
Tops 40 disposals again
MEssendon Bombers
July 2, 2021
Parish scored one goal to go with 43 disposals (23 kicks, 20 handballs) and made five marks during Friday's 98-57 loss to Geelong in Round 16.
Parish has received plenty of plaudits for his performances despite his teams' failures to win over the last two weeks. That's a large result of logging over 40 disposals for the fourth time this season, which is fairly noteworthy in the history of Essendon, let alone in this season. So long as he and Zach Merrett stay sharp, there's plenty of value to be had from Parish and this team.
Strong despite loss
MEssendon Bombers
June 26, 2021
Parish recorded 37 disposals (13 kicks, 24 handballs) and made five marks during Saturday's 68-57 loss to Melbourne in Round 15.
Parish was busy all night and wasn't far behind Zach Merrett in their solid performances on the ball. For Parish, he needs to go beyond disposals to really put up the biggest fantasy scores each week, though he's been a safe bet to score at least 100 points for some time now.
