2017 Season

4 NEAFL Bye. -
5 NEAFL Controlled the back half superbly. Took 11 marks and didn't give Giants forwards an inch. -

7 Achilles.
8 NEAFL Did his bit down back against an overmatched Canberra outfit. -
9 NEAFL Very good down back. Didn’t give an inch and rebounded strongly. -
10 NEAFL Did what was needed down back and was a rebounding machine. -

14 NEAFL Did his job down back with 16 touches and five rebounds. -

19 Bye.
20 NEAFL Had a bit to do down back with the speed that the ball was entering the Lions attack. -
21 NEAFL Did what was needed, but with Swans dominating, wasn’t extended a great deal. -
22 NEAFL Influential down back with his rebounding, but also driving the ball into attack. -
23 NEAFL Bye. -
EF NEAFL Not as influential as he can be in the back half. -

22 StK Won a lot of the ball in defence and distributed mainly by hand. 5
23 GCS Gave away some free kicks but much better second half. Steady player. 6
