2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 NM Some iffy moments with ball in hand, and fumbled more than most other Eagles. Can be better than that. 4
2 StK One of the few defenders to stand tall when the heat was on early. His competitive efforts were vital. 7
3 Rich 21 touches, but didn’t really make an impact in the game. 6
4 Syd Surprisingly started across half forward and missed as many targets as he has in defence. Tackled hard. 4
5 Haw Meh! Did a few okay things, but was in and out far too much for a player of his quality. 4
6 Frem Had 22 possessions but he they weren’t impactful. 5
7 Port Was good in defence, played one on one with several opponents and wasn’t afraid to go back with the pack. 6
8 WB Tried to give the team some run out of defence. 6
9 Ess Hobbled by an ankle issue throughout the game and had one to forget. 4
10 Ankle.
11 Ankle.
12 Ankle.
13 WAFL Spent time on Liam Ryan and was okay early, then the Lion got on top. Moved into midfield late and was fair. -
14 WAFL Up and down game. More would be expected from a senior player. -
15 WB Ran well out of the backline, taking Picken at times, until corked his hip and could not continue. 4
16 Port No impact with the footy. Needs to do more. 4
17 Senior emergency.
18 WAFL Terrific third quarter helped get his team back into the match. Solid overall. -
19 WAFL Fair outing with a mostly clean 22 disposals. -
20 WAFL Had 23 touches and six inside 50s. One of the Royals better players on the day. -
21 Carl Spent time at both ends after being a late inclusion but didn’t do a lot. 4
22 WAFL Big ball winner with 34 touches, six clearances. Had a hand in a lot of scores. -
23 WAFL Putting hand up for finals recall with 30 touches and two goals. -
EF Senior emergency.
SF GWS Back in the team and stationed forward, then sent back. Was fair, but is that all he’s got to give now? 4

2016 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 Knee.
2 Knee.
3 Knee.
4 WAFL Solid three-quarter return for 17 possessions. -
5 Syd Worked hard all day but efficiency of usage not great. 5
6 Coll Kicked a goal but didn’t do much else. 3
7 Geel Certainly not the worst playing behind the ball. Did what he could but amounted to very little. 6
8 StK Looked in injury trouble for a while but came back on to join the party. 7
9 Port Another player not afraid to put his body on the line when required. 7
10 GCS Played at half-forward and gave the team a different look. 6
11 WB Struggled to touch the ball. Seven kicks and eight effective disposals not enough from an experienced player. 3
12 Adel Struggling to have any impact on games at the moment. 3
13 Bris Solid first half and helped set up match winning half time lead. 6
15 Ess Found form with 21 disposals. 6
16 NM Stepped up in the second half. Had some big moments. 6
17 Carl Did what was required without setting world on fire. Three rebound 50s. 6
18 Melb Battled. His use of the footy was poor. 3
19 Coll Horror first half continuing on from awful showing against Dees. Back to the WAFL? 3
20 Frem Looked injured but improved as the game went. 6
21 GWS Took Smith and was OK defensively, but no impact going forward. 4
22 Haw No signs of his foot issues. That’s a good start. Had 17 touches. 5
23 Adel Rebound from defence was crucial in setting up attack after attack. 6
EF WB Half-back option but made some mistakes and offered nought in the way of run. 3

2015 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 WB Work-rate good but couldn’t get enough ball to do any damage offensively. 3
2 Carl Better than in Round 1 but still has more to give as a playmaker. 5
3 Frem Kicked a nice goal but is a million miles away from Collingwood form. 5
4 Bris In the thick of it until half time and then faded. 5
5 GWS Played in defence. Kicked poorly early but improved. 5
6 Port Had the tough task of trying to curb the influence of Wingard. 6
7 GCS No Eagle had more contested possessions. 6
8 StK On Templeton initially and played his part as a defender. 5
9 Geel Looked smart dashing around the packs. Four inside-50s. 6
10 NM When game on line in final term he stepped to the plate with eight disposals. 7
11 Ess Copped a shin injury early but battled on. 5
12 Rich Heavy hit in marking contest in second term but kept running well. 6

15 Adel Kicked a goal and did some deft work. 5
16 Coll Heavy knock early in game but a handy performer. 5

18 GCS Reasonable job in defence. 5
19 Haw Found it tough on Rioli and gave away key free kicks. 4
20 Frem Didn’t have much of an impact. 4
21 WB Worked hard in the undersized defence. 4
22 Ankle.
23 StK Returned from injury and had 22 touches. Did well. 6
QF Haw Defended superbly. Hard to believe he’s become a reliable defender. 8
PF NM Had to play on bigger opponents and did it brilliantly. Rebounded superbly. 8
GF Haw Unable to halt the Hawks and unable to influence going the other way. 3

1 WB Found plenty of ball and dangerous bursting through the middle. 7
2 Melb Pushed hard forward in rotation with Masten. Influential early. 6
3 Late withdrawal.
4 Geel Won his share of footy but defensive work/running at times not great. 5

7 WAFL 25 disp, eight marks, seven inside 50s after being dropped. -

11 NM Bobbed up now and then but no significant influence. 4
12 Haw The sub. Had six touches in the final term but the game was already over. 2
13 GCS One of Ablett’s taggers for first three quarters and stuck to task. 6
14 StK Matched on Hayes initially. OK at times. 5
15 Frem Continues to disappoint at new club. Needs quality around him to thrive. 4

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 VFL Tagged closely by Selwood. Was a strong performer. -
3 Carl Rarely won clean possession in return game; not a factor.. 3
4 Port Tidy 19 touch effort and two goals but disposal efficiency down (58%). 5
5 Ess Won 10 contested possessions and three clearances and inside 50s. 6
6 WB Quiet night for him and often caught out of position. Can play better. 4
7 Bris Never far from the action but often disposing under pressure. 5
8 Geel Dashed in here and there. Effective when he could get hands on the ball. 6
9 Adel One beautiful goal off the ground in the last term as the Pies piled them on. 7
10 GCS Missed some shots at goal but had six inside 50s to keep the pressure on. 7
11 Melb Kept the pressure on when A grade midfield was spelling. Handy second punch. 7
13 WCE Usual good moments and stuck several important tackles, but did fade. 5
14 Frem Helped keep the pressure on in middle – seven clearances, nine inside-50s. 7
15 Carl Had 16 disposals before crude bum on Simpson – only four thereafter. 5
19 StK Dropped some marks he should have snaffled which dulled his influence. 5
20 Syd Proved a tricky customer for the Swans, laying 11 tackles and kicking a goal. 7
21 NM Poor kick across goal proved costly as Tarrant chipped in to kick goal. 4
22 WCE Hurt his hand early. Still laid seven tackles but struggled with the ball. 5
23 Ess Some incisive touches here and there but only a bit role. 4
QF Haw Picked up by Burgoyne. Two nice goals but in and out of the game. 5
SF WCE Provided a back-up to frontline midfield – six clearances and eight tackles. 6
PF Syd Didn’t take the bit between his teeth. Not his sort of game. 4
