2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Port Plugged away in usual underground miner style and was one of the few Swans who looked threatening late in game. 7
2 WB One effective disposal in first half and while effort was there he didn’t look right. Came in with hip problem – 9 effective touches. 3
3 Coll Slow start but then jagged two second-time goals to get side back into game. Still well short of his hard-running best. 4
4 WCE Spent long periods in the front half and had minimal impact overall. The end is nigh? 4
5 GWS Couldn’t generate anything in midfield and struggled. 3
6 Hip.
7 Hip.
8 Hip.
9 Hip.
10 Hip.
11 Hip.
12 WB Tough as a two-dollar steak but was a little medium rare after returning from injury. Disposal was a little off at times. 5
13 Rich Still rusty but kicked the goal that put the side in front with couple of minutes remaining; Four clearances. 4
14 Ess Big question marks on his future again. Just 13 touches and never a factor. 4
15 Melb Tackled his heart out and got a bit of the ball. Not his best, but made a good contribution. 6
16 GCS Did his bit when the game was on the line, 22 disposals yet his best is still ahead. 7
17 GWS Continued his upturn in form and was a great four quarter performer. 22 disposals, 11 tackles and finished with a goal. 8
18 StK Solid if unspectacular in midfield. 5
19 Haw 17 disposals yet was never a threat. 5
20 Geel Hard-nut midfielder did some good things. Five inside-50s, one tackle and six score involvements. 6
21 Frem Back to his best. Floated around the half forward line and midfield with aplomb. 8
22 Adel Made the Crows pay with a goal in the first term after a fortunate 50 metre penalty. 4
23 Carl Played a defensive role and performed it admirably. Provided some offensive rebound with 16 touches. 5
EF Ess Early goal helped set the tone and laid three tackles to go with 19 disposals. 6
SF Geel Tougher than a $2 steak but lacked the red wine jus to add that finishing touch. Early goal had him aroused; 23 disposals. 6

2016 Season

1 Coll One of a host of Swans’ midfielders who had it on a string in midfield. 8
2 Carl Started the year in super form: 26 touches, five tackles a good day at the office. 7
3 GWS Superb work-rate all day – six tackles and five inside-50s. 6
4 Adel In the wars, battled on bravely after copping some heavy knocks. 6
5 WCE In his element in tough and demanding conditions . 6
6 Bris Lined-up on Rich and had the better the Lions midfielder for most of the match. 7

8 Rich Battled hard in midfield and an important mover at stages. Laid seven tackles. 6
9 Haw Tradesman-like in the middle and helped give Swans the edge. 5
10 NM Part of a strong midfield group that got the better of North. Not a star but played role. 6
11 GCS Gathered a good amount of the footy though failed to use it well. 6
12 GWS Underwhelming display with only 13 possessions. Did lay eight tackles though. 4
13 Melb Split time between midfield and as a small forward. Hard worker as always in trenches. 5
15 WB Usual honest and committed game with hard edge in the middle. 6
16 Geel Celebrated 200th game with three goals, five clearances and 10 tackles. 8
17 Haw Worked hard but copped knock in third that slowed him a tad. Five tackles. 6
18 Carl Worked hard to ensure he stayed involved in the game. Four clearances and kicked 1.2. 6
19 Frem Had 20 touches but everyone had lots of the ball. 5
20 Port A bit down on normal standards but toiled away as teammates flourished. 5
21 StK Steady and reliable game in midfield and did all he needed to do. 6
22 Ankle.
23 Rich Impressive four-quarter performance in midfield. Always looked dangerous when he got it. 7

PF Geel In everything at start and applied consistent pressure for four quarters. 7

14 Port Even effort then lifted with some hard running in the last 10 minutes. 7
15 Bris Influence nullified somewhat but kept working. Only 11 effective disposals. 5
16 Haw Battled hard throughout despite lop-sided scoreline. At least cracked in. 7
