2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Won't remember his first game as skipper favourably. Part of a backline that was machine-gunned. 4
2 WCE Put his body on the line with a Kennedy collision. Did a really good job on LeCras too. 7
3 Bris Had a close run-with job on Zorko and did it very well for long periods. Brave in the air and on the ground. 7
4 Coll Picked up Fasolo and matched him overhead, giving him a torrid afternoon. Imagine he’ll be among the coach’s votes. 7
5 Geel Great job on Menzel who did kick two goals but for most part Saint skipper was his master. 7
6 Haw Never gave an inch in the back half. Attacked the ball when needed and defended strongly. Taken well to captaincy. 7
7 GWS Skipper’s highlight was one ripping tackle on Patton. Stats modest but played a role in the victory. 4
8 Carl Locked down on the dangerous Wright and was hard at the contest. 6
9 Syd Usual wholehearted effort down back but didn’t seem to have a suitable match-up. 4
10 WB Against the odds he had his work cut out in the back half. 3
11 Bye.
12 Adel Conceded two goals to Eddie Betts but won the overall battle. 6
13 NM Excellent in defence from start to finish and showed the way. 7
14 GCS Resolute game in defence and continued good recent form. 6
15 Frem Led well in defence and had 21 possessions. 6
16 Rich Excellent skipper's game and showed the way. Hauled in a speccy to top it off. 7
17 Ess Tried hard to staunch the flow but was overwhelmed . Plenty of rebounds. 5
18 Syd Strong defensive game against the weight of numbers and never conceded. 6
19 Port Had to handle R.Gray and Wines when they were forward. Steady. 5
20 WCE Skipper gave a tough unrelenting display in a grueling game which suited him down to the ground. 7
21 Melb Had Garlett’s measure for much of the day until the little Dee bobbed up late. 7
22 NM Effective stopping role down back and worked industriously for four quarters. 6
23 Rich Copped heavy knock in early stages and took no further part in the game. 0

2016 Season

1 Port Seven rebounds from defensive 50, consistently thwarting Power attacks. 5
2 WB Tough night at the office opposed mostly to McLean. 3
3 Coll Superb job on Fasolo (two goals) who only looked dangerous for a brief period in the final term. 8
4 Haw Made a few errors but held Rioli in check all day. Copped a heavy knock in final term. 6
5 GWS Never gave up but had some less than satisfying moments down back. 3
6 Melb Fine job and kept Garlett in check for four quarters 7
7 NM Defender was solid on a variety of Roos small forwards 6
8 WCE Couldn’t cope with Le Cras and co. in Eagles’ front half. 3
9 Ess Disposal was scrappy, particularly early but remained hard at it. 5
10 Frem Had important job on Walters and strong in contests. Kicking was a worry. 5
11 Adel Good job on Betts for three quarters. 6
12 Carl Fierce and committed tackler in defence, but kicking often sub par. 5
14 Geel Tough and gritty game down back opposed to Menzel. 7
15 GCS Tried hard but was part of a defence under bombardment. 3
16 Ess Hard nut all game and was able to pressure Dons small forwards. 5
17 Melb Had task on Garlett and did a mighty job, plus kicking two goals in five minutes. 8
18 WB Tough and uncompromising down back and was unrelenting all night. 6
19 NM Did a strong job on Thomas and didn’t let him cut loose. 6
20 Carl Strong game by hard bitten defender. 6
21 Back.
22 Rich Journeyman’s job in defence. 5
23 Bris Playing well until an arm injury forced him from the field. 5

3 Coll Fine goal early and OK if not spectacular. 4

3 GWS Great endurance and run. 6
4 Ess Did some good work in defence and put his body on the line. 5
5 Syd Excellent first half with one-touch handling. One of comp’s biggest improvers. 7

8 Adel Hard job on Thompson but didn’t let him dominate. 5
9 WB On debutant Hrovat and Dahlhaus and had trouble with both. 3

2012 Season

1 Port Had 23 disposals but kicking lacked power. 5
2 GCS Stuck to his task in the backline. 5
3 WB Stuck doggedly to his task in defensive role. 6
4 Frem In the best form of his career in defence and had a good game. 6
5 Melb On Davey. Purely negating and did well apart from a couple of hiccups. 5
6 Haw Had his hands full as Rioli ran riot. 3
7 Carl Picked up Garlett and worked hard. 5
8 WCE Not a memorable game. 4
9 Syd Courageous attack on the ball led to head clash and was subbed off. 3
12 Adel Sub came on third term and did some good work in defence. 4
14 NM Strong little goer who was prominent in first half. Gritty worker bee. 6

16 Bris Steady rather than spectacular in defence. 5
17 Syd Evenly balanced contest with McGlynn. 5
18 WB Had the better of Dahlhaus. 6
