2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Up and about from the outset, laying 10 tackles and pumping the ball inside 50 on 10 occasions. 8
2 Ess Faced-off against Watson and at times exposed the Bombers ' veteran for pace and easily among Lions best. 8
3 StK Had Geary for company and took a long time to get into stride. Had an impact when the Lions made their run. 7
4 Rich Took a big grab late in the game which was one of the few highlights for the Lions. Gritty effort which included two goals. 7
5 WB Few of his 32 disposals were off (19 effective) but ended with 2.2, eight tackles and 633 metres gained. Solid. 7
6 Port Not his typical energetic self which seemed to reflect the teams effort. 5
7 Syd Buzzed about and kicked a goal – missed a sitter too. Laid some good tackles, but not his most influential outing. 5
8 Haw Ended the day with 31 disposals. Mixed inside and outside work really well and applied 35 pressure acts. 7
9 Adel Big opening with first two goals and hit post twice in last quarter. Battled well. 6
10 Coll Kicked two goals in first quarter and along with Beams was among the Lions best; 28 disposals and two first-term goals. 8
11 Bye.
12 Frem Massive first quarter with 14 touches. Finished with 35 disposals and 10 clearances. Massive game. 9
13 Port Best player on the ground with two goals, 11 inside-50’s, 12 tackles and gave off another two goals. 8
14 GWS Possibly his worst game since he established himself in the midfield. Had more tackles (nine) than disposals (five). Injured? 3
15 Ess Obviously keen to make amends for previous week with strong first half and was instrumental in the win. 8
16 Geel A one-man Lions’ show. Not only 36 disposals but 12 tackles and four goals. Pay him double! 9
17 Rich Didn’t touch the Sherrin in first term and had a dirty day overall. Only positive was a smart finish in second term. 3
18 Carl Sizzled in opening term with 11 disposals. Finished with 26 touches, three goals and possibly three Brownlow votes. 9
19 Suspended.
20 WB Helped ignite second quarter revival with two goals and did well to shrug off Liberatore who had stints on the Lions midfielder. 6
21 GCS Lacked his normal zippy foot speed. Was easily run down a few times and yet still had 22 touches and a goal. 7
22 Melb Huge start got side into the game and while quieter after that still had it 26 times and had six inside-50s and five clearances. 7
23 NM Despite three days in hospital during the week he was a potent player around the field. 8

2016 Season

1 Suspended.
2 NM Energetic performance and booted two goals. 7
3 Geel Worked hard through midfield and while won some ball he never threatened the opposition. 5
4 GCS In and under all night. Set an example his teammates followed. 8
5 WB Lions’ best with 30+ touches and two goals. One of only a few players to battle the game out. 8
6 Syd Massive in the midfield. Only downside opponent Hannebery had about as many. 8
7 Port Kicked the two best goals of the day, the first roving class, the second off the deck. 7
8 Coll Standout with four goals. Tried his heart out. 7
9 Melb Dees limited his creativity forward of centre but gathered six clearances, five inside-50s. 6
10 Haw Made good decisions with ball in hand and laid a team-high nine tackles. 6
11 Carl Off target with four behinds. 25 touches but didn’t have a major impact. 6
12 Frem Another to rack up kicks but did not seem to be influential. 4
13 WCE Used on a wing and as a loose man in defence. Honest effort. 6
14 Personal leave.
15 Personal leave.
16 GCS Booted a clever goal but lacked usual spark seen in previous Q-Clashes. 5
17 GWS Stand out best for the Lions. If only some of the senior players could be as committed. 8
18 Ess Played his part in midfield and across half forward. A few smart kicks opened Bombers’ up. 7
19 Port Ultra consistent and one of the few prepared to chase hard all game. 7
20 Adel 12 tackles, four clearances and two inside-50s. 5
21 Carl Huge first half with three goals and 10 inside 50s. Lions have him to thank for the win. 9
22 Geel S.Selwood nullified him well. One inside-50, two clearances and no goals. 3
23 StK Never stopped trying in midfield but was frustrated by umpires and team failures. 7

2015 Season

1 Coll One of the few Lions who made an impact in all four quarters. 7
2 NM All right at times but not much damage. 4
3 Rich 10 touches opening term and 27 for match including two goals. 7
4 WCE In the thick of it until half time before fading out. 6
5 GCS Another who wasted the footy, however did manage two goals. 4
6 Carl Couldn’t get into the game with Curnow on his wheel. 2
7 Port Lively although pestered well by Jones. 5
8 Ess OK without having any scoreboard impact. 4
9 StK Finished with 20 touches after collecting 10 in first term when Lions on top. 6
10 GWS Got away from Bugg a few times and was creative forward of centre. 6
12 WB Brilliant four-bounce running goal in second term. Worked solidly. 5
13 Adel One of his best games for the season. Hard to fault. 8
14 Frem Copped a couple of knocks but kept on driving the Lions’ forward. 7
15 Syd Miraculous Pele goal in first term and another in second and third. Strong. 8
16 Melb Kicked sides only goal of first half. Lots of stats but impact not as pronounced. 6
17 NM Kept plugging away in second half when all was lost. 7
18 Geel Buzzed about but was undisciplined at stages when frustration boiled over. 5
19 GCS Great duel with Shaw and Russell on a wing. 7
20 Carl Two goals capped a serviceable night on the wing. 7
21 Adel Midfield dynamo never stopped running. 8
22 Haw Played wide of opponent Hill in a shootout in midfield. Honors fairly even. 7
23 WB Flashes of brilliances marred by ugly turnovers. 6

2014 Season

1 Haw Never stopped trying or running opposed to Shiels. Benefiting from big summer. 7
2 Geel Among the best with six inside-50s, six clearances, eight tackles and a goal. 8
3 GCS Faded out after a good start like many of his teammates. 4
4 Port Not his best game but still one of the better Lions. 6
5 Rich Big first half and then handy right through. 7
6 StK Always busy both in winning the ball and tackling. 8
7 Syd Hot and cold. Solid first and third quarters. 5
8 Ess Beaten and frustrated by Hocking until a few big runs in last term. 5
9 NM Against McDonald, hardly had a sniff. Looked crook and subbed off. 1
11 Carl Cut through Blues with pace and sparked the Lions. 7
12 WB Huge early and helped set up big Lions lead. Picken reined him in after main break. 6
13 GWS Kicked a couple of goals but otherwise had minimal impact. 3
14 Frem Had no hard tag but couldn’t find the ball. 2
15 NM Big impact. Provided the spark that ignited second-quarter blitz. 7
16 Rich Two goals and five inside-50s to be a factor for his team as a link man. 7
17 WCE Use his pace to advantage at times and in the thick of it most of the night. 7
18 GCS Matched his talk this week with deeds on the field. Was everywhere. 8
19 Melb Very quiet early then injected into middle and started to get hands on ball. 4
20 Adel Ran hard and provided some flashes of brilliance. 7
21 Coll Set tone with brilliant first half (23 disp). Eight inside-50s, nine clearances. 8
22 Frem Showed usual zest although constantly under the pump. 7
23 Personal leave.

2013 Season

1 WB Quieter than his recent good form. 3
2 Adel Kicked a couple of goals, but down on his usual output. 5
3 GCS Won plenty of contested footy but generally well held. 4
4 NM Kept getting stopped in his tracks. 4
5 Melb Could have had a day out if not for inaccurate kicking. Back to his best. 7
6 Syd Barely sighted in first half. Ended with one goal, but disappointing overall. 4
7 WCE Quiet. Only 11 touches. Kicked a goal though. 4
8 Ess Two early goals set the tone for the day and ended with three. 7
9 Carl Had trouble making an impact. 4
10 Coll Tenacious little man who was one of best. 6
12 Frem Held to a low output by Pearce. 3
13 Geel Really quiet until final term when he had seven disposals and kicked a goal. 6
14 Haw Coming under greater scrutiny by opposition and was well held. 3
15 GCS Played in patches. His two second-half goals shows his ground level skills. 5
16 NM Good nuisance value to opposition in attack. 5
17 Melb Didn’t have his best evening but kicked good running goal to ignite the team. 5
18 Port Kicked two great goals and had five inside 50s. 6
19 StK Contained by Geary. 3
20 Rich Tried hard to create opportunities up forward but only two behinds. 5
21 GWS Lively with two goals by half time. Didn’t add to his tally and lost his zip. 5
22 WB Too hit for Bulldogs to handle early, but reined in later. 6
23 Geel Kicked 2.2 and laid eight tackles to be involved in both phases. 6

13 WB Backed up last week’s effort with another handy display – eight inside-50s. 7
14 Melb Lively again and had a good duel with Nicholson. 5
15 Syd Continues to impress, adding seven inside 50s to his 31 disposals. 7

17 GCS Set up the first goal of the match but was fairly quiet. 4
18 WCE Quiet early but kept working and kicked two goals. 6
