2017 Digest:   Sneaking up on joining the veterans category but there is a strong correlation between his best form and that of the team. Steady summer.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Carl Flew under the radar to a degree. Only had six kicks for one goal. 4
2 Coll Created problems early up forward; sharked a well-read goal at a stoppage and made a crucial third-quarter intercept. 6
3 Hip.
4 Hip.
5 Hip.
6 Hip.
7 Hip.
8 Frem Disposal efficiency down at times but kept battling. Thrown into midfield in final term and did find something for the team. 6
9 GWS Had a hand in a few scores and was lively without being super threatening in attack. Huge tackle on Ward late. 5
10 Ess Indigenous playmaker kicked two first-half goals and buzzed around half forward for 18 touches. Certainly played his part. 6
11 NM Good effort. Got into dangerous spots, kicked a goal and provided an attacking option when he could. 6
12 Bye.
13 Syd Drifted in and out. Just the 12 touches and a goal. 4
14 Carl Very slow starter – just three touches in first hour. Better in second half, but has to do more. 4
15 Port Outside speed and link up play suits the hardnosed Richmond midfielders. 6
16 StK Low ratio of kicks to handballs and didn't have a big say after promising start. 3
17 Bris Smart start in front half, but was a bit too ‘Hollywood’ with ball in hand at stages. Okay overall. 6
18 GWS Missed some chances for goal in second term and another in the third. Only 12 possessions and three tackles. 4
19 GCS Just four kicks from his 19 touches. Was creative with the footy and bought team mates into it. 6
20 Haw First kick was a goal and lively with his nippiness (is that even a word). Should be, because he was exactly that. 5
21 Geel Flashed in out of the game. Just the 8 kicks from his 17 touches. Only 275 metres gained. 5
22 Frem Kicked one goal from 14 touches. In and out of the game. 4
23 StK Relished the space afforded to him to be a key factor for the team. What he did had some polish to it. 6
QF Geel Playmaker was superb in finding the ball and hurting the Cats with the ball; 24 disposals, six inside-50s and four tackles. 8
PF GWS Had eight score involvements among his 19 possessions. Handy effort. 6
GF Adel Provided a lively option working up and down the ground. Run and commitment a feature. 7

2016 Season

1 Carl Hand complaint in third term but energy and effort were still up to normal standards. 5
2 Hand.
3 Adel Had a bit of the ball but lacked his usual incisiveness going forward. 5
4 WCE Competed hard which was more than could be said for some teammates. 6
5 Melb Did some good things and worked hard for seven inside-50s and six clearances. One goal. 7
6 Port Some important centre clearances but burst in and out too often rather than consistent input. 5
7 Haw Low key game in midfield and at half forward. 3
8 Syd Drifted through midfield to play an ever-increasing role as game wore on. 25 possessions. 7
9 Frem Booted two goals from 22 touches. Important game. 6
10 Ess First quarter was enormous (12 disposals). Seven inside-50s and four clearances. 8
11 NM Very quiet first half but managed to lift a cog in closing hour. 4
12 GCS Wasteful early in front of goal but took chances in final term when they presented. Handy evening. 6
14 Bris Did his bit with two goals rolling up from half forward with Bewick as one of his opponents. 6
15 Port Won seven clearances and delivered four inside-50s. 6
16 WB Flitted in and out of the game. Grabbed eight of his 18 disposals in final term. 5
17 Ess Did a lot of his work by hand with 14 handballs from 18 touches. Burst in and out. 5
18 Haw Missed three chances at goal and gathered just five kicks. Struggled. 4
19 Calf.
20 Calf.
21 Geel Very quiet and got even quieter when game on line in final term (one disposal). 3
22 StK Impact well down. One inside-50, no goals and a few key errors. 5
23 Syd Solid in patches up forward and in midfield, but failed to hurt the Swans with ball in hand. 4

2015 Season

1 Carl Prominent in central clearances and had a fair game. 6
2 Calf.
3 Bris Nuisance value great and a last-quarter goal rounded out effort. 7
4 Melb By far and away the Tigers best. Did all he could to drag team over the lines. 7
5 Geel After three effective disposals in first half he lifted. Six clearances and a goal. 6
6 NM Enjoyed some bright patches in first half but faded as Roos got on top. 6
7 Calf.
8 Port Back in the side and rewarded with a goal in the last term. 5
9 Ess 16 contested possessions and seven inside 50s. A big effort. 8
10 Frem Big second half and read play beautifully to soccer sealing goal. 7
12 WCE Quieter night after a strong month. 5
13 Syd Creative with ball in hand. Spent time off after Franklin bump but returned. 6
14 GWS In final term his two goals proved vital. Six inside-50s, three tackles. 8
15 Carl Quiet night until it ended with a leg injury just before half time. 4
16 Leg.
17 Leg.
18 Leg.
19 Leg.
20 Leg.
21 Coll Looked a little rusty in first game back but got better longer it went. 4
22 Ess Looked dangerous at fall of ball but missed chances to hurt the Bombers. 6
23 NM Tagged by McMillan. Great life and speed in third term fired Tigers. 7
EF NM Looked rusty – ran under ball, fumbled. Not his best afternoon. 3

2014 Season

1 GCS The sole small across half forward and did his best to chase and harass. Kicked a goal too. 6
2 Carl Lovely opening goal and stayed in the thick of it. Got away from Buckley early and had big second term. 6
3 WB Couldn’t make an impression on the game. 3
4 Coll Buzzed about and kicked a goal but found Toovey hard to shake. 4
5 Bris Rarely sighted until last quarter. 3
6 Haw Got his hands on ball often enough but without big impact. 5
7 Geel Sub. Two quick goals to start third quarter helped get side back into the game. 3
9 Melb Kicked two goals and was a key to the forward line. 7
10 GWS Chipped in with a goal but was a touch quiet considering the Tigers domination. 4
11 Ess One nice crumbing goal but only half his touches hit a target. 4
12 NM One goal and five inside-50s but not really a factor playing mid-sized forward role. 4
13 Frem Struggled apart from brief patch in third term. Five inside-50s and no goals. 5
14 Syd Low-key contribution in attack. 3
15 StK Busy and chipped in down forward. 5
16 Bris Lively effort highlighted by two goals, six inside-50s, 13 contested possessions. 8
17 Port Did most of his work by hand – 15 handballs, but got to good spots. 6
18 WCE Two goal assists critical in first and third quarters. Didn’t star but handy. 5
19 GWS Linked well at times and kicked a goal to play his role well on the day. 6
20 Ess Two goals and gave something to the effort without setting game alight. 6
21 Adel Bobbed up for a clutch goal at the end of the second term with a clever snap. 6
22 StK Won a bit of the ball in attack without causing damage. 4
23 Syd Similar to Deledio, he seemed to pop up just when required in an important contribution. 7
EF Port Unsighted first half (four disp) and didn’t get any better after main break. 2

2013 Season

1 Carl Nippy around the fall of ball up forward and won some tough footy. 6
2 StK First-half involvement limited but lifted, Ran hard between the arcs. 5
3 WB Provided plenty of defensive pressure in attack and ended with two goals. 6
4 Coll Kicked a goal but that was his only real highlight. Wasteful with footy. 5
5 Frem Work-rate good and provided some spark without dominating. 6
6 Geel Disposal not always clean but won 16 contested poss and six clearances. 8
7 Port Playing a more run-with role and spent time on Boak. 7
8 Melb Started brightly and worked hard but didn’t hit the targets he should have. 6
9 Ess Provided some run and could hold his head high. Not the worst. 6
10 WCE Monster first half (13 disp, two goals) but had to be subbed out after poke in eye. 6
12 Adel Great form continues – 14-disposal first half helped set up the victory. 7
13 WB Buzzed about at half forward without hitting scoreboard. Team-high five tackles. 5
14 StK Usual creative game 6
15 NM Tackled hard but had no real scoreboard impact. 4

17 Frem Worked up into the midfield off half forward and kicked a crucial goal. 6
18 Syd Well blanketed by Smith. 3

2012 Season

1 Carl Started well but not influential. 3
2 Coll Couple of bad kicking errors early then snagged a nice goal. 4
3 Melb Quiet day and didn’t do a whole lot with his 14 disposals. 3
6 Port Came on as the sub late in the third term and his fresh legs showed. 3
7 Syd Ran hard and found 20 disposals without having a big influence. 5
8 Ess Busy livewire who worked deep into forward line. 6
9 Haw Two handy goals and gave a spark around the forward line. 6
10 StK Lively with two goals and made a contribution. 6
11 Frem Kicked three and set up another in a solid display across half forward. 7

19 Bris Key playmaker in the Tigers second term burst. 6
20 WB Career-high four goals and could have kicked seven or eight. 8
