2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Easily his best outing for Brisbane. Bobbed up in attack and booted a career best three goals. 6
2 Ess Was in the thick of the action for three quarters but faded slightly when needed in final term. 6
3 NEAFL 35 possessions, 10 marks, eight clearances and five inside-50s highlight what was a huge outing. -
4 NEAFL Taken off after playing an excellent opening half. 15 possessions. -
5 WB Worked super hard but gets caught a lot and doesn’t have the spark to break away. Seven tackles but eight effective disposals. 2
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 NEAFL Can hold his head high. 28 touches, nine tackles and two goals in loss. Just had little support. -
8 NEAFL One of the Lions best in tight loss to Redland with 33 touches and nine clearances. -
9 NEAFL Superb effort in midfield. Won the ball inside and out and had good balance to his game. -
10 Coll No influence on the game with 12 scrappy disposals and seven tackles. Will he hold his spot? 3
11 Bye.
12 Frem Did well off a wing and was a linkman out of defence, taking five uncontested marks. 5
13 Port The Lions leading goal kicker with three including two in the first term. 7
14 GWS Improved performance off a wing and even finished a couple of goals. 6
15 Ess Usual gritty and whole-hearted display in middle. Kicked crucial goal late. 5
16 Geel Had a forgettable stint on Blicavs in defence before bagging three goals to turn his own fortunes around. 6
17 Rich Some nice touches and was neat in front of goal, but has to get more of the footy. 6
18 Carl Threatened early to play a big part. Only performed in patches though, despite the Lions overall dominance. 5
19 WCE Had five clearances in his 28 possessions. Also kicked a goal. 7
20 WB In the action a lot. Snagged two goals but there are times when his kicking lets him down. Half of his 12 kicks were ineffective. 5
21 GCS Was prone to making errors but got better as game progressed. 6
22 Melb Battled hard for 22 disposals, one goal and three tackles. Not a really penetrating player. 6
23 NM Kept battling away n defensive role. 4

2016 Season

1 WCE Showed courage and worked hard to win the ball. 5
2 NM Worked hard through the middle and used the footy well. 5
3 Geel Ran with Selwood at times and that task proved beyond him. Four clearances and one inside-50. 5
4 GCS Battled along until coming alive in last quarter. Last quarter goal sealed victory. 5
5 WB Worked hard despite the tide flowing in the opposite direction after an early injury scare. 6
6 Syd Deserves to start next time around after hearty effort. 6
7 Port Unassuming performance, won plenty of footy without hurting the opposition. 7
8 Coll Used in various on-ball roles with some effect. 5
9 Melb Won some ball but didn’t hurt the Dees to any great degree. Under pressure a lot. 4
10 Haw Clearance work at stoppages the only highlight in a quiet performance. 4
11 Carl Returned to some form with 20 touches and seven tackles. Battled on well. 6
12 Frem Tried to be an option through the midfield and booted a goal. 5
13 WCE Started as the “seventh” man in defence. One of his better games for the Lions. 6
14 Rich Got a bit of ball in midfield but didn’t really hurt Richmond with many of his touches. 5
16 GCS Struggled to get involved with just the 12 possessions. 3
17 GWS For someone with more than 130 games experience, he lacked presence. Looked lost. 4
18 Ess Workmanlike game in middle and pushed forward for snap goal. Steady contributor. 7
19 Port One of his better games this season but still found wanting at times. 6
20 Adel Laid 12 tackles and had seven clearances. Tried hard throughout. 7
21 Carl One of his best games for the Lions. Showed courage when marking a high ball in defence. 7
22 Geel Five clearances and three inside-50s but made a few mistakes with ball in hand. 6
23 StK For someone of his experience a greater input would be expected. 4

2015 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Adel Broke the tide on 10 unanswered goals from the Crows. 5
2 -
3 Port Escaped sub vest but didn’t make the most of it. A bit one-paced. 5
4 Geel Went to Selwood in second term and good on him around stoppages. 5
5 Haw Did some good things early but impact waned as game wore on. 4
6 Rich Sub. On late in game when it was all over and grabbed a few touches. 4
7 Ess Not huge with two clearances and two inside-50s. Handy. 5
8 Frem Won four clearances, so was at the coalface. Tried hard. 6
9 Coll OK in midfield but lacks a yard when needed. 5
10 WCE Won some ball backward of centre. Last term very good. 6
11 Syd Won a lot of possessions deep in defence and didn’t hurt the Swans. 4
12 VFL Back to ball-winning ways with 29 possessions in win. -
13 VFL Bye. -
14 VFL Starred in North Ballarat defeat with 34 disposals, 15 clearances. -
15 Geel Four clearances, five inside-50s and a mountain of possession in solid game. 7
16 Ess One of his better games this year. Good with ball in hand and hit scoreboard. 7
17 Bris Last-quarter goal capped off a solid night. 6
18 Carl In and out of the game without a big impact. 4
19 VFL Decent response to AFL axing with 21 disposals. -
20 VFL Huge. 44 disposals, 10 marks, seven clearances, one goal. -
21 Frem On as sub at last change and got involved. 2
22 WB Active in first half. High ratio of handballs. 4
23 Rich Keen to impress and make the most of his chance . 6

2014 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Ess No great impact but tried hard. 5
2 WB Flashed in and out of play. Needs to make most of chances near big sticks. 5

4 Syd A little bit down on his usual production. 5
5 Coll Five clearances but only one inside-50 and very little impact. 5

7 GCS Struggled to get his hands on the ball enough around the stoppages. 5

10 Geel Sub. On for second half and showed up some teammates. Two goals. 4
11 WCE In the thick of the action and had a good night. 6
12 Rich Two goals but another who is struggling a little to find his best. 5
13 Adel Pushed forward for a goal in the last quarter after a soft free kick. 5
14 Melb Two clearances and four inside-50s but never a huge factor. 5
15 Bris Huge first term with 10 touches. Then just nine more for the game. 6
16 Haw Solid contributor in midfield and kicked a handy goal. 6
17 StK Without having a tagging role he was able to let his game flow. 7
18 Carl Had run with role on Murphy in first half then shifted. 4

20 GWS One of his better games this season. Won plenty of ball and used it well. 7
21 WB Strong at the contest all through. 6

3 Syd Toiled hard inside but not a major influence. 4
4 Bris Mucked up three shots at big sticks. 6
5 Haw Carried out his run-with roles well. 5
6 Port Not only blotted out Hartlett but also won plenty of the footy. 8
7 WB Prevented Liberatore from having his usual clearances. 7

13 Frem Tireless worker against the odds. 6
14 GWS Kicked a nice goal and added five clearances and nine contested possessions. 6

18 Melb Hit the scoreboard with a career-high four goals and laid five tackles. 7

21 Ess Ran with Heppell initially until Bomber was injured. Usual important game. 6
22 Haw Booted successive goals on Burgoyne midway through third quarter. 6
