Squad

Players are listed by guernsey number, and 2012 statistics are for AFL regular season and finals series matches during the 2012 AFL season only. Career statistics include a player's complete AFL career, which, as a result, means that a player's debut and part or whole of their career statistics may be for another club. Statistics are correct as of 2nd Preliminary Final of the 2012 season (21 September 2012) and are taken from AFL Tables.
