2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Not a huge night on the stats sheet (12 possessions), but booted a telling goal and had a hand in two more. 5
2 Ess Stats belie his fearless attack on the ball and how he led from the front in first half when teammates went missing. 6
3 StK Broke out of his form funk with a strong outing in midfield and across half back. 32 touches and a goal. 8
4 Rich Worked hard across half back. Was reluctant at times to use his booming left foot as weapon. 6
5 WB Couple of kick-in mistakes weren’t up to standard. Tried hard and was at least able to take game on through middle of ground. 6
6 Port Got plenty of the footy (25 possessions) but influence was not huge. 5
7 Syd For a veteran player, made some poor efforts and decisions. Went to Kennedy in second half. Has to be better. 5
8 Haw Found the footy but made a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes. Defensive principles were also shaky. 6
9 Adel Used his long kicking to clear the defensive lines but was not so deft when having to pin point a forward. 6
10 Coll Half-back role on a variety of opponents. For a player of his experience he has to win the ball more than 14 times. 4
11 Bye.
12 Frem Was in the action from the opening term and despite a few skill errors, it was one his better efforts for the year. 7
13 Port Played as a sweeper across halfback without an opponent and started many Lions forays forward. 7
14 GWS Lacked awareness at a stoppage when Johnson pushed him away to kick an easy goal. Seems to lack passion. Has the fire gone out? 4
15 Ess Matched on Langford in midfield early. Made some errors initially but then was useful. 6
16 Geel Saw a lot of action across half back but was more reactive than proactive. 5
17 Rich Forced to defend deep in defence at times and wasn’t ever a massive factor on the day. 4
18 Carl Calm in a crisis late when Carlton started a charge. Landed a 55m goal on the run to end the Blues’ seven goal run. 6
19 WCE His lethal kicking was a huge weapon. Had 20 kicks among 32 touches. 8
20 WB Arguably his best game for the season which included a trademark 50m bomb to put Lions two goals up in the third term. 7
21 GCS Worked hard all night and unselfishly set-up Bastinac for a straight forward goal. 7
22 Melb Linked pretty well through the middle of the ground for 25 touches. Only three inside-50s and no tackles. 6
23 NM Once again showed positivity coming off half back line. 7

2016 Season

1 WCE Led the way. A blistering left-foot kick and his tackling was a feature too. 7
2 NM Heavily tagged by Jacobs and was rendered useless. 1
3 Hamstring.
4 GCS An even four quarters and clearly amongst Lions’ best. Used ball wisely. 7
5 WB Hardly sighted and even spent time deep in attack. Numbers belie a lack of impact. 3
6 Syd Big second and third quarters before fading in last term. Two goals as well. 7
7 Port Won plenty of contested footy, but didn’t produce enough drive out of the middle. 6
8 Coll Failed in his role checking Pendlebury. Best work late when game was over. 5
9 Melb Couldn’t question effort. Seven inside-50s, three clearances, six tackles, nine contested possessions. 8
10 Haw Did some good things in the first half, but managed only five touches after half time. 5
11 Carl Lifted in the third after being towelled by Curnow early. Two goals. 6
12 Frem Opposed to Barlow for majority of evening who had his meaure. 4
13 WCE After 13 disposals in first term he went walkabout. Only seven more disposals. Problem child? 5
14 Rich Given plenty of room early then tweaked ankle. Returned but butchered a few disposals. 5
16 GCS Not a lot of the footy but did manage to boot two goals. 5
17 GWS Collected eight of his 19 disposals in last quarter when game over. In the doldrums. 5
18 Ess Allowed to run free off half back to set up win. Would have relished the space afforded to him. 8
19 Port Got plenty of physical attention. Great spirit and one of his better games this year. 7
20 Adel Played as the plus-one on occasions and his disposal was reasonable. 6
21 Carl Started well with early goal but paid close attention by Kerridge and kept relatively quiet. 5
22 Geel Flitted in and out but was among better players. Seven clearances, five inside-50s. 7
23 StK Used the ball well especially in first half. Strong game. 6

2015 Season

1 Coll Huge second half and the prime reason Lions kicked the last seven goals. 7
2 NM OK without ever taking charge in middle. 5
3 Rich Repelled a number of attacks before switching to on-ball in last term. 7
4 WCE Best work when deployed to on-ball division. Should play there more often. 6
5 GCS Booted an early goal and was just an average contributor. 4
6 Carl Tagged out of the game by Armfield. Lifted slightly after half time. 4
7 Port Swung the game in the second when he directly set-up four goals. 8
8 Ess OK but kicking uncharacteristically down in efficiency. 4
9 StK Great early but faded after quarter time when needed most. 6
10 GWS Quiet day but was hampered by ankle issue in third quarter. 4
12 WB Couldn’t get into it in first half. Had some ordinary moments. 3
13 Adel Had his hands full with Charlie Cameron but otherwise solid. 7
14 Frem 20 touches across half back and gave some drive. 6
15 Syd Rebounded from half back well early in game then Swans shut him down. 5
16 Melb Played with little zest for a contest and appears to be going through the motions. 4
17 NM Struggled to exert any influence on the game. Not much zest. 6
18 Geel Continued short kicking game, which was hit and miss. Thump it long! 5
19 GCS Had 16 touches by half time. Then just 10 more when Lions were pressing to win. 6
20 Carl Solid but guilty of handballing in situations where he should have kicked long. 7
21 Glute.
22 Haw Drifted across half back then up into middle but not influential. 4
23 WB Deft skill set-up scoring shots and great under pressure. 7

2014 Season

1 Haw Kicking efficiency down a touch, which impacted his effectiveness. 5
2 Geel Guthrie wore him early but still able to impact. Went out of game later. 6
3 GCS Subbed off in second term with suspected ACL injury after a bright start. 3

2013 Season

1 WB Hardly seen and Lower never gave him a sniff. 4
2 Adel Much better than last week, but needs to get more of the footy. 5
3 GCS Huge second half with some pivotal possessions. 8
4 NM Struggle continues for Michael Tuck Medal winner. 4
5 Shoulder.
6 Shoulder.
7 Shoulder.
8 Shoulder
9 Shoulder.
10 Shoulder
11 Shoulder
12 Frem Used mainly in half back role as he is underdone but worked into it. 5
13 Geel Huge first term (12 disp) then Duncan went to him. Had an impact. 7
14 Haw Had a strong second half. 5
15 GCS Booming 60m goal to end third quarter set Lions on the way to victory. 6
16 NM Sluggish first two quarters (seven disposals) then boom! Ignited after half time. 8
17 Melb Tagged by Grimes and didn’t have huge numbers but imposed himself when needed. 6
18 Port Well tagged by Cornes but still set up three goals. 6
19 StK Got away in first half but Jones reined him in later. 6
20 Rich Tried to get involved early with a long goal but went missing at half back. 6
21 GWS Another Lion guilty of playing in bursts. Kicked two goals. 7
22 WB Started brilliantly, but Wallis never gave him room to breathe in second half. 5
23 Geel Nearly became the match-winner with a fine last quarter (nine disposals). 7

2012 Season

1 Melb Gave drive from half back and pushed up the ground for 24 disposals. 7
2 Carl Run and long kicking moments were few and far between on average night. 5
3 Frem Well held by Crowley. Just 13 possessions. 4
4 GCS Well held by Rischitelli before late burst of disposals (nine last term). 5
5 Geel One of his best efforts for the Lions this year. 6
6 Ess Probably his side’s best player, accumulating 30 touches. 7
7 Coll Provided some midfield polish and remained hard at it. 6
8 GWS Solid four quarters, rarely far from the action. 7
9 NM Hardly sighted early but lifted from latter stages of first half and had input. 5
10 WCE Big last term. 6
12 Haw Tapered in second half. 5
13 WB Gave great drive and his workrate was superb – a key to the win. 8
14 Melb Had McKenzie for company and worked throughout it fairly well. 6
15 Syd Kept his side in the game in a strong first half, but faded after the main break. 6
16 StK Went with Montagna and probably squared the contest. 6
19 Rich Worked hard all over the ground. One of the Lions’ few winners. 7
20 Carl Struggled to get into the game at all and just four inside-50s and no goals. 4
21 Adel Big four quarters and used his booming left foot kick to perfection. 7
22 Port Five clearances and five inside 50s for the left footed powerhouse. 8
23 WB Brilliant! Turned the game on its head in second term. 9
