2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WCE Battled hard in big job on Kennedy and was powerless at times to stop the star forward (who booted seven). 4
2 Geel Despite Hawkins kicking four goals he was among the Roos’ better players with 28 disposals and countless defensive marks. 7
3 GWS Set up for the defensive intercept role and won 23 touches to go with six marks. 6
4 WB Had T Boyd until he went off the spent time on Cloke. Late in game he went forward but was unable to impact. 6
5 Frem Defended extremely well. Fremantle’s forwards struggled to get past him. 7
6 GCS Good defensive job on potentially dangerous Wright and did all the little things well down back. 6
7 Adel Took Walker and kept him to just a handful of touches. Had lot of help from fellow tall backs, but excellent effort. 7
8 Syd Had the big job on Franklin and kept to his task despite all the traffic coming one way. 6
9 Melb Did the job on whoever he played on. One effort in final term was superb and highlighted his fierce desire. 8
10 Carl Rebounded well from defence. Took seven marks and hit the packs hard. 7
11 Rich Had the role on Riewoldt (two goals) and while going was tough he kept battling for 24 possessions. 6
12 Bye.
13 StK Did a solid job on Riewoldt and at the end of the night both had run to a standstill. 6
14 WB Hulking defender took Redpath for the most part. Not playing to the level he was last year. Okay but can play better. 5
15 GCS Mostly opposed to Wright and nullified his aerial impact, and rebound was useful. 7
16 Frem Nyhuis was sent to negate his defensive rebound and did a good job. Not the big defender’s best day. 4
17 Port Great job to keep the inform Charlie Dixon to one goal. 7
18 Back.
19 Melb Had job on Hogan until the Dee departed. Not a big say stats-wise. 5
20 Coll Had Reid and Moore at different stages and was just ok. 5
21 Haw Skipper for the day. Held up well down back, and used the ball well. 6
22 StK Had a heavy workload against Saints tall forwards, but was always agile and never conceded an inch. 6
23 Bris Acting skipper for the day and was always srrong down back. 6

2016 Season

1 Adel Stood Walker in a great battle. Gave as good as he got in a fine display. 7
2 Bris Kept his opponent in check. 5
3 Melb Like his did last year, had issues with Hogan’s movement and strength. Spent time on Watts too. 4
4 Frem Rolled an ankle early on and didn’t return until later in the contest. 3
5 GCS Used the footy well and spoilt well in defence. 5
6 WB Flexible defender who helped keep clamps on Bulldog forwards. 6
7 StK Good battle with Membrey and honours just about even 6
8 Ess Kept Daniher out of the game when opposed to him and attacked when he could. Strong. 7
9 Carl In defence opposed to Jones/Rowe. Ended game with head taped up but did job. 6
10 Syd Thrown task on Franklin and actually did pretty well given midfield got flogged. 6
11 Rich Played his part down back and was well in control. 5
12 Geel Among best again.Towelled Stanley and provided nine rebound 50s. 8
13 Haw Another high quality performance in defence on Gunston and others. 8
14 Adel Came out square in his battle with Walker. 5
16 WCE Tried hard against Kennedy. The Eagle won the contest. 5
17 Port Did a really good job on Dixon. 7
18 Coll Lined up on Cloke and did everything required in first half. Rebounded well. 8
19 StK Another solid effort in defence against a variety of Saints forwards. 6
20 WB In defence against T.Boyd and Roughead and countered any threat. 5
21 Haw Great job stopping Gunston (one goal) and grabbed 10 marks himself. 8
22 Syd Didn’t lower his colours to the injured Franklin. Found a bit of ball and used it well. 7
23 GWS Kept Cameron quiet for nearly all the night but unable to intercept like has been doing. 8
EF Adel Battled Walker in great duel. Shaded on the night but far from disgraced. 5

2015 Season

3 Port Kicked a nice goal and did well as a key defender. 6
4 Geel Fine job on Hawkins. Not only beat him but won plenty of the ball himself. 8
5 Haw Did a decent job on Roughead considering Hawks’ dominance. 6
6 Rich Went to Astbury and able to render him ineffective. 4
7 Ess Struggled without a designated match-up. Better when goes to dangerous rival. 4
8 Frem Good job on Clarke when he played forward. 5
9 Coll Reasonable job on Cloke, but dropped chest mark late that Magpies goalled from. 6
10 WCE Defensively solid but not huge offensive rebound. Played his role. 4
11 Syd Battled Tippett and after losing battle early he got on top after half time. 5
12 GWS Did what was required down back. Building as a player each week. 6
14 GCS Couldn't handle Dixon. Horror night. 1
15 Geel Kept Hawkins to one goal and that was his mission. Beaten a few times in the air. 6
16 Ess Given a run-around by Hooker in Bombers’ attack. Struggled. 3
17 Bris One of the lesser lights for the Roos. 4
18 Carl One of his better games this season in defence. 7
19 Melb Dawes caused some issues early but better after half time. 5
20 StK Used his athleticism to do a fair job on Riewoldt. 6
21 Frem Matched on Griffin and Sandilands when they spent time in attack. 5
22 WB Impassable early and always used ball well. 8
23 Rich On Riewoldt and maintained strong recent form. 7
EF Rich Gave away too many frees early but was better late. 5
SF Groin.
PF WCE Big task on Eagles tall forwards who gradually got on top. 5

14 GWS A goal early but wasn’t a massive factor with Haynes/Gilham on his hammer. 4
15 Rich Four first-half goals set the Roos on way. Stood up when his team needed him. 7
16 Bris Fulfilled his role with three goals but not much else. 5
17 Carl Had a bit of the ball but not a big factor. 4
18 Melb Presented well up forward but wasteful in front of the sticks. 5
19 Geel One of the few Roos to struggle. Didn’t get into the game at all. 2
20 Adel Hardly sighted. 1
21 Ess A lot of hard and unrecognised work in attack 5
22 Haw Missed shot at goal before seeing stars after a big bump from Guerra. 1
23 Coll Kicked 0.4 and only seven kicks. Faces a massive year in 2014. 4
