2017 Digest:   Clean hands and one-touch disposal keeps him at AFL level, but he’s a senior hand who must find ways to stay involved.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Kicked five goals one day in 2011 against Carlton. Not a lot since. 1
2 Rich Totally ineffective for the second week running. Give Daicos a game. 1
3 Senior emergency.
4 StK Late inclusion for Phillips. God knows why Pies continually tried to pinpoint passes to him inside 50. Straight back out again. 1
5 VFL One of the Magpies best in big loss. 25 possessions, five inside-50s and a few score assists. -
6 VFL Spent time in the midfield and collected 33 disposals. Can’t see a senior spot opening up in Pies’ talent-rich middle, though. -
7 VFL Used mostly in midfield and won the ball well. Had 32 possessions and seven clearances to press for a recall. -
8 GWS Back into the line-up as the pressure forward. Two first-quarter set-shot goals helped get the Pies moving. 4
9 Haw As close as Pies have to a pressure forward but exemplifies coach’s conservatism at selection table. Play Brown or Daicos. 3
10 Bris Nervous week awaiting selection after grabbing just 14 disposals and no goals. Two tackles. 3
11 VFL Worked into the game to play a handy role, but just the 15 possessions. -
12 VFL Massive game in the VFL in loss to Casey. Had nearly 40 touches and worked his backside off. -
13 Bye.
14 VFL Strong game again at this level. 23 possessions and nine clearances. -
15 VFL Excellent around the stoppages with eight clearances to go with 24 possessions. -
16 VFL Big outing again with 29 possessions, nine clearances and nine inside 50s. -
17 GCS Booted an early goal but was quiet from there on; just the 13 possessions. 3
18 WCE Barely sighted. Applied some forward pressure but needs to do more. 3
19 Adel Two goals from the small forward was just reward for his performance. 4
20 NM Kicked three majors and applied good forward pressure. One of footy’s great survivors. 6
21 Port Popped up with a goal late in the game to give the Magpies a silly chance, hardly sighted before that. 3
22 Geel Two kicks (one was a goal after horror Motlop clanger). Can’t see him at the club next year. 2
23 Senior emergency.

2016 Season

1 Syd Coaches must love his tackling and commitment but outclassed in this company. 5
2 Rich Worked super hard to present from half forward. Five inside-50s, five tackles. 6
3 StK Five touches in the first half and six in the second not enough. Didn’t hit the scoreboard at all. 3
4 Melb Gives all but doesn’t get involved enough to be of any great concern to opponent. Three inside-50s. 4
5 Ess Got his chances up forward and made most of then to snag three goals. 7
6 WCE Booted a key goal. Important when the Pies got into the game. 5
7 Carl Showed some life and burst around the contests to be one of better performers. 5
8 Bris Even four-quarter player who had the better of gun Lion defender Pearce Hanley. 7
9 Geel Seven tackles and involved in a few passages but not a huger output. 4
10 WB Burrowed in as usual and tackled strongly. Honest game. 5
11 Port Battled away with eight tackles in front half but didn’t look dangerous at any stage. 5
12 Melb After a reasonable first half (12 disposals) he touched it six times after half time. 5
14 Frem Usual strong work ethic inside and played his part as a cog in machine. 5
15 Carl Lively and desperate in attack. Kicked sealer with a pearler in the final term 7
16 GWS Strong pressure in forward half and kicked a miraculous goal. 5
17 Adel Struggled to find the footy, but did lay five tackles. 4
18 NM Brilliant snap goal in first term. Limited opportunities but applied pressure in attack. 6
19 Groin.
20 Rich Couldn’t get into the game at all and did not have a single kick. 2
21 WB Busier game this week and covered plenty of ground. 5
22 GCS Provided nuisance value in front half without hitting the scoreboard. 3
23 Haw Bobbed up for two goals and laid eight tackles as a small forward. 5

2015 Season

1 Bris Troubled Brisbane’s defence and slotted two goals. 6
2 Adel Collingwood’s most effective forward with three goals. Four clearances. 7
3 StK Busy small man who worked hard and got results. 6
4 Ess Two effective disposals in first half then lifted after main break. 5
5 Carl Busy in forward line at the fall of the ball. 6
6 Geel In the thick of things early with clean hands but vanished. 3
7 Rich Buzzed around the ball. One goal and two score assists. Handy. 7
8 GCS Busy but missed late opportunities to hit the scoreboard. 4
9 NM Tackled hard in forward half to keep ball in. Kicked the sealer. 6
10 Melb Flitted in and out for three goals and 10 contested possessions. 6
11 Ankle.
12 Ankle.
13 Frem One goal but just one inside-50 and limited impact on game flow. 3

15 Port Struggled early, missed his one shot on goal. 6
16 WCE Sub on early for Cloke. Bobbed up. 3
17 WB Sub. On for Oxley and unable to pick up tempo of game. 1
18 VFL 30 possessions and a goal in first VFL game since 2011. -
19 Carl Back in team and good in attack with a defensive job on Tuohy. 7
20 Syd Busy player as ever and always in the thick of it. 5
21 Rich Small forward without kicking boot on was not the place to be in a B&W jumper. 3
22 Geel Five inside-50s but not a huge presence as others took control. 5
23 Ess Two goals from limited chances. Laid six tackles so work-rate handy. 6

2014 Season

1 PM Battled hard in midfield but wasn’t a star. -
2 Syd Had McVeigh for company at times and did pretty well. 5
3 Geel Kicked a goal and laid six tackles. Battled away valiantly without great influence. 5
4 Rich Got better as the game wore on. Slowly finding some form. 5
5 NM Support role to main players with four inside-50s and two goal assists. 5
6 Ess Pressure good at half forward, particularly early when side struggling. 5
7 Carl Put on plenty of pressure in attack. 6
9 Adel Bobbed up for goal and busy throughout as a small forward. Clean hands. 6
10 WCE Two first-half goals critical in keeping in touch early. Ended with three. 7
11 StK Toiled honestly in attack but hard to get a look-in between Elliott and Fasolo. 5
12 Melb Involved in a couple of passages but generally well held by Grimes. 5
13 WB Just seven possessions and no goals. Quiet. 3
14 Haw Typically lively up forward and provided good pressure with nine tackles. 7
15 Carl Reasonably well held by Tuohy but kept battling. Seven tackles, two inside-50s. 5
16 GCS Worked hard but had little impact. 3
17 Ess Fletcher started on him. Industrious but didn’t have a big say. 4
18 Adel Won 10 contested possessions, six tackles. Work-rate good but impact not. 6
19 Port Some of his tackling ferocious (eight for the game). Played his role. 6
20 WCE Seemed to have job on Priddis early but failed and moved. Zero influence. 2
21 Bris Like many started OK then found it hard. No goals, one inside-50 in 100th game. 5
22 GWS Strong in first half when others struggled. A terrier in tight. 6
23 Haw Great goal late but no impact to that point despite good work-rate. 3

2013 Season

1 NM Started in the middle and had an honest game. 6
2 Carl Important after half time with two goals. Six tackles also. 6
3 Haw Ran with Mitchell and just OK in that role. Busy but panicky down back at times. 5
4 Rich Not one of his best games through middle but won nine contested possessions. 6
5 Ess Kicked side’s only goal of first term and ended with two but quiet. 5
6 StK A goal and seven tackles but not finding a lot of the footy. 4
7 Frem Battled away in midfield but lacked a bit of penetration. 5
8 Geel Great game. Bobbed up, marked well and won some key hard balls. 7
9 Syd Had a role on Parker and was tested. Gave his all. 5

11 Melb Bustled around for his disposals but not his best effort – 3 inside-50s. 5
12 WB Good first half and then tapered. 6
14 Port Tried hard but lacking that break-away burst. Three scoring assists. 5
15 Carl Limited possessions but played a part keeping the midfield pressure on – seven tackles. 6
16 Adel Beavered away at ground level at usual tearaway pace. 6

20 Syd Toiled hard and helped set up two goals. 5
21 Haw Quiet night on the stats sheet but did managed two goals. 4
22 WCE Great first half netted 14 disposals and while faded he’d done enough. 6
23 NM Sub. On early than expected to replace Brown. Didn’t set world on fire. 4
EF Port Didn’t get a heap of the ball, but a tackling machine in the clinches. 6

8 Geel Didn’t find much of the ball but tackled and contested hard. 5
9 Adel Excellent in and under performance from the industrious midfielder. 7

11 Melb Found space, picked some pockets and used ball well in the middle. 7
13 WCE Quiet early but two goals in 90 seconds when midfield exploded in third term. 6
14 Frem Great game. Complemented those around him well; team-high nine clearances. 8
15 Carl Nimble around the stoppages and among better players – nine clearances. 7
16 Geel Played perfect foil to gun midfielders to keep pressure on. 7
