2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 StK Signalled early that he would be dangerous around goals and pace worried Saints. 5
2 Carl Booted three goals against his former club to be one of the game-breakers. Chase down on Docherty and goal one for highlight reel. 7
3 Geel One goal but was pretty well held by Mackie in a great battle for most of the contest. 3
4 Frem Kicked three goals and was always dangerous in attack and on the fly from high up the ground. Did his bit. 7
5 Rich Buzzed about in front half and was good in third term surge. Would like a re-do on a few of those late touches. 5
6 Ess Booted three goals to get the better of Baguley and get the Dees going in third term. Gave value for possessions. 6
7 Haw Couldn’t get away from Stratton early then jagged two goals in three minutes in third term. Ended match with three from 7 kicks. 5
8 Adel Burst into life in the second half with two goals and two goal assists. 6
9 NM Failed to kick a goal and was rarely sighted with Williams in his back pocket. 2
10 GCS The only Dee to play a four-quarter game. Ended with 5.4 and was the catalyst when things were going bad. 9
11 Bye.
12 Coll Continually found space in forward half even when Pies got on top. Putting together a fine season. 7
13 WB Radar was off in front of the big sticks with 2.4 (including two posters) but was again at his lively best in attack. 6
14 WCE Quiet. Only four disposals. 3
15 Hamstring.
16 Carl Small forward chimed in with three goals (from six kicks) in what was a handy effort given tight game. 6
17 Adel Missed a sitter early on, but was busy in the front half without hitting the scoreboard. Got up through midfield in spurts. 5
18 Port Caused headaches in attack – especially in the first half. Missed a few chances though and ended with 2.3 5
19 NM Kicked two into the wind in first term, but then missed a few gettable shots that proved costly. 6
20 GWS Unsighted for long periods in attack. Shaw never gave him an inch. 1
21 StK Quiet for long periods but came alive in the final term when the Dees needed. 4
22 Bris Booted two goals from just eight touches but applied some pressure in the front half. 5
23 Coll The one Demon who continued to get his hands on the ball in first half. Booted two goals, but poor effort late was costly. 6

2016 Season

1 GWS Struggled to get into the game early then had a run through middle. Better late. 5
2 Ess Only six touches, but at least looked lively and ended with two goals. 4
3 Ankle.
4 Ankle.
5 Rich Four goals and made Morris look second rate at times. Huge influence in the victory. 8
6 StK Controlled by Geary and never threatened to play a big part. 3
7 GCS Fairly well held though still bobbed up with a three goals. 5
8 WB Adcock/Morris kept him quiet for long periods. Two goals but rarely a factor. 3
9 Bris Waxed with Hogan in first half and could have booted more than two goals. Found space. 5
10 Port Byrne-Jones had his measure for much of the day. Just the one major. 3
11 Haw Would want to have all evidence of the game erased. A horror day in the front half. 1
12 VFL Just eight touches after being dropped, but wasn’t helped by Casey’s poor delivery. -
13 VFL OK in patches. Kicking significantly let him down. -
14 VFL Bye. -
15 Adel Back in the team and back in form with four goals. Enjoyed finding space in Adelaide’s zone defence. 7
16 Frem Ball just didn’t really bounce his way despite good endeavour in front half. 3
17 StK Drifted out as the game wore on – much like rest of team. Ended with two goals. 3
18 WCE His three goals came from only nine touches. Made the most of his chances. 6
19 GCS Quiet for long periods but burst in and out when the Dees needed a few times. 4
20 Haw Couldn’t get into the game at all and ended with no goals and one tackle. 3
21 Port Two goals in the final term to put the icing on the cake. 6
22 Ill.
23 Geel Two goals in final term added some respectability to a pretty ordinary game. 4

2015 Season

1 GCS The ignitor in attack and in stints in the middle. Good effort. 7
2 GWS Started well but like many others drifted from the game in second half. 3
3 Adel Two goals from six attempts in a performance of what ifs? 5
4 Rich Always dangerous in attack and two third-term goals gave Dees breathing space. 6
5 Frem Three first-half goals but then supply dried up. Goalkicking much improved. 7
6 Syd A spectator in first half then came alive after main break. 5
7 Haw Kicked three, should have had five. A rare winner. 6
8 WB Brilliant banana goal from the pocket in final term his only highlight. 4
9 Port Kicked two goals in the opening half but didn’t impact the game otherwise. 4
10 Coll Two electrifying goals in second term bought crowd alive. Not much else. 4
11 StK Barely sighted in attack apart from one freak boundary-side goal. 2
12 Geel Ended with four crucial goals to bounce back after a poor game last week. 7
14 WCE Worked hard in front half to keep ball in and had spurts in midfield. 5
15 Ess Lowered colours to Baguley but worked hard defensively with nine tackles. 6
16 Bris Lively in attack with two goals, but defensive pressure his highlight. 6
17 StK Webster restricted him and apart from one nice snap goal did nothing. 3
18 Coll Two first-half goals but had little impact in the second. 6
19 NM Well beaten by Wright and only one goal. Missed a costly mark in third term. 2
20 WB Ended with two goals and had a few bursts in middle. 4
21 Carl A spectator in the first half. Came alive in third term but that was it. 3
22 Frem Kicked two goals and laid six tackles. Did well. 6
23 GWS Dynamic with two first quarter goals but drifted from the game. 5

2014 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Port Early goal disallowed then well held til goal right at end. 2
2 Rich Not a big factor in 100th game. 3
3 Ess Might have to set GPS for VFL. One goal and zero inside-50s not enough. 2
4 VFL Goalless in the VFL after being dropped. Disinterested. -
5 VFL Pushed higher up the ground, got involved more than recent weeks. -
6 WCE Fantastic return with 3.1 and three score assists. Influential. 8
7 Coll Couldn’t get a sniff in first half and it didn’t get any better. 2
8 StK Sub. Thrown in for final term and produced a ripping goal late. 1
10 Adel Sub. Injected some life into the game late despite limited touches. 1
11 Bris Sub came on in second term and kicked two quick goals then another later. 5
12 Geel Solid first half (10 disp) then went right out of the game after main break. 4
13 VFL Ran through midfield in new role but was goalless. -
14 VFL Slightly better than recent efforts but a long way from his best. -
15 VFL Struggled again and career appears at the crossroads. -
16 VFL Quiet until bursting to life with a huge final term. Two goals. -
17 VFL Held to 13 touches by Warren and minimal impact. -
18 VFL Just six touches on another dirty afternoon. -
19 VFL Better than recent outings but still nowhere near his best. -
20 VFL In and out but was a bit better than past few weeks. -
21 VFL Ran through midfield and had some pep in his step. Better. -
22 VFL Started well, but workrate dropped as the margin increased. -

2013 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Did nothing until final term when kicked two goals in two minutes. 4
2 Coll Pace and crumbing skills a highlight. Three goals were all class. 7
3 Geel Kicked 1.3 but had just five effective disposals for night. Not enough. 3
4 WCE Came to life in second term and used his speed whenever he could. 7
5 Adel Snagged four goals and terrorised Adelaide’s defence with blistering speed. 7
6 Melb Ended with four opportunistic goals in another fruitful outing. 7
7 StK Workrate OK for his two goals but not what you’d call a huge influence. 6
8 Port Kicked four goals with uncanny goal sense. Having a good year. 6
9 Bris Bobbed up on occasions and should have done more than two goals. 6
10 GWS Constant threat at ground level and snagged four goals. Having a fine season. 7
11 Ess Denied a goal early but kept running and covered heaps of ground. Faded. 5
12 Haw Well held by Guerra/Duryea. Only three inside-50s and no goals in a poor night. 2
14 Syd Barely sighted for much of the night. Scoreless and just one inside-50. 2
15 Coll Kicked opening two goals then hardly sighted for the rest of the match. 4
16 StK Geary kept him under control most of the day but he bobbed up in junk time. 3
17 NM Mullett had him at the start then Atley. Came into it at the end. 5
18 GCS Missed several shots at goal to blot his performance. 4
19 Frem The best of the small forwards but missed crucial goal on the run in third term. 5
20 WB Goalless until tweaking a hammy and being subbed out. 2
21 Hamstring.
22 VFL Kicked 1.3 and was crowed for room. Chased hard though. -
23 Port Kicked two goals from three attempts. 6
EF Rich Couldn’t find the ball at all in first half. Better late and kicked killer goal. 5
SF Syd Hardly sighted and also had corked hip. 2

2012 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Not a big game but made his contribution in attack. 5
2 Bris Not seen in first half but pushed into middle and blitzed early third term. 6
3 Coll Didn’t create much in first half then bolted with three bounce goals. 6
4 Ess Rarely threatened the Blues defence. Only 11 touches and one goal. 3
5 Frem Kicked opening goal of first and third quarters which proved pivotal. 5
6 GWS Only goal came in final minutes as Power controlled him all day. 4
7 StK Had six inside 50s but no goals and no clearances. Just battled. 4
8 Adel Kicked three goals so for a small forward in a losing side he did his bit. 6
9 Melb Well held by Nicholson and didn’t kick a goal despite some chances. 3
10 Port Besides one goal and one long run along the member’s wing was unsighted. 3
11 Geel Enright trailed him for much of the night and goal drought continues. 3
12 WCE Form a huge concern. Kicked one goal but was never dangerous up forward. 2
14 Haw Sub. Came on at half time in attempt to lift side. 3
15 Coll Turned around a poor first half with a far better second to help the side. 5
16 NM On Bastinac. Couldn’t make an impact on game. 3
17 WB Two goals in second. Enjoyed combining with great mate Betts for second. 6
18 Rich Couple of better signs in first half 4
19 Syd Picked up by Shaw. Scatter gun kicking at times. 4
20 Bris Started slowly and made some mistakes but worked into it for three goals. 6
21 Ess Relished the myriad of opportunities that came his way. Dangerous with 3.2. 7
22 GCS Looked dangerous but just didn’t influence. 3
23 StK Kicking was way below his normal standard 3
