2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Frem Two goals and got dangerous on occasions in the forward 50. Had a run on the ball at times which was pleasing. 5
2 NM Two first-half goals were key in keeping Roos within range then added two more in second half to be a key to the win. 7
3 Melb Superb running goal in second term and another banana effort after three-quarter time siren. Ended with four goals. 8
4 Haw Kicked goal of year contender with an off-the-ground effort in second term. Ended day with three in another solid display. 7
5 StK Goaled on quarter-time siren and another in third term but was pretty well held for most part by Geary. 4
6 Rested.
7 GCS Looked sore and struggled until final term when kicked two goals and provided some life up forward. 4
8 Ess Baguley did a good job on him. Kicked 2.2 from seven kicks. Looked most dangerous in final term when ball came in quick. 4
9 WB Had a really quiet one until final term when kicked two key goals. Only three kicks for the night so made them count. 4
10 Port Set up one goal and kicked another in second term. More disposals than last week but only six effective. 3
11 Adel Again bobbed up to make the most of six kicks to end with three goals. Season tally now 25. 5
12 Bye.
13 WCE Kicked a goal in second term and another in final minute. Dangerous at times but not consistent enough. 5
14 Frem Three first-half goals were critical in keeping team in the game. Seven kicks and workrate good. 6
15 Knee.
16 Knee.
17 Haw Opportunistic effort again netted three goals from 12 kicks in what was a handy contribution in a tight game. 6
18 Adel Two kicks in opening half and three for the game. Only effective disposal was a goal. 1
19 Soreness.
20 Soreness.
21 Rich Chipped in with 2 important goals from limited opportunities. Looked sore late. 5
22 Coll Set up early goal to Menegola and had some handy touches, including one late to set up Murdoch goal to seal game. 5
23 GWS Jagged goal in first term and added another. Moved well and importantly will have silenced knockers with four tackles. 6
QF Senior emergency.
SF Syd Was cleaner than a Nun’s browser history when he got it and roosted home two key goals in third term. 6
PF Adel Poor in what was probably last time in the hoops. Didn’t kick a goal and was never a factor. 2

2016 Season

1 Played in VFL trial against North Ballarat.
2 Played in VFL trial against Collingwood.
3 Bris Looked dangerous at times and polish and class stood out. One goal and four inside-50s. 5
4 Ess Radar well off with five behinds including one absolute sitter. 4
5 Port Quiet start but lit up second half to kick three goals. Getting into some nice form. 6
6 GCS Ended night with one goal from five inside-50s and three clearances. Spent time in midfield. 6
7 WCE Played a more defensive role and OK. One long goal and missed a sitter. 4
8 Adel Looked dangerous but missed a few opportunities. Six inside-50s. 5
9 Coll One goal in second term but for most part struggled to get into game. Might need week off. 4
10 Soreness.
11 GWS Three goals, including one in final term after a ripping mark on the lead. Battled Giants spare all day. 7
12 NM Despite injuring ankle in second term he ended with four huge goals. Class player. 8
13 WB Two first-term goals and four for the game in another solid effort. Only seven kicks. 7
14 StK One goal but well held by Geary for much of the night. 4
16 Syd Two goals but relatively well held by Smith. Only five kicks. 4
17 Frem One goal and moved OK up forward. Needs to find more of the ball. 5
18 Adel Four goals proved critical and was superb early when side under the pump. 8
19 WB Had a defensive role at times on Johannisen and Wood. Did that well. One goal. 6
20 Ess Struggled to get into the game and sat out most of second half with adductor. 1
21 Groin.
22 Groin.
23 Melb Returned from injury to boot four goals. Dangerous each time he went near it. 8
