2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Geel Hands were full all night. Many of his possessions were grabbed behind the ball and didn't impact the Cats. 3
2 Port Saw a lot of the footy as it was camped in the Fremantle defensive fifty most of the match. 5
3 WAFL Strong rebounding game off half back with 28 possessions. Repelled Subiaco attacks at will. -
4 WAFL Laid 10 tackles to go with 23 touches, but turned the ball over a few times. -
5 WAFL Bye. -
6 WAFL Clearly Pell's best in big defeat. Had 37 possessions playing mostly in midfield and tried hard throughout. -
7 Ess Had a defensive role and stuck to it. 5
8 Rich Quiet game down back. Didn’t make mistakes but certainly wasn’t a player that caused concerns offensively for his team. 4
9 Carl Impressive effort because he put his body on the line. 6
10 Adel Got to see the first hand the skill and poise of Wayne Milera. 4
11 Coll Doesn’t use the ball well enough. 4
12 Bris Off to a bad start when he allowed Cutler to bag a couple of goals. Never fully recovered. 5
13 Bye.
14 Senior emergency.
15 WAFL Five clearances and a goal proved handy in a low-scoring contest. -
16 WAFL One of Peel's best in midfield, then in attack. 25 touches and four nice goals. -
17 WAFL Played really well in a midfield/forward role. Had 31 touches, 12 clearances and 11 tackles. -
18 Senior emergency.
19 GWS After doing it well in the WAFL, he played a defensive midfield role and rolled forward on occasion. Strong performance in all areas. 7
20 GCS Spent time in the centre square. Needs to get the ball though. Only seven disposal. 3
21 Syd Almost seemed to be tagging Heeney at centre bounces early but that match-up disappeared. Minimal impact. 3
22 Rich Played on Cotchin and restricted his impact. Kept him to 18 disposals. 6
23 Ess Used at half back to rebound and did is fairly well at stages. 6

2016 Season

1 WB Caught against bigger opponents a few times in defence. Tried hard but outgunned. 4
2 GCS Gold Coast’s medium sized forwards had big nights. 4
3 WCE Found the footy. A lot of his teammates didn’t. 5
4 NM OK in the back half but the ball spent a lot of time down there. 5
5 Carl Pushed forward for a goal. Freo needed that. 5
6 Adel Tried to contain Lynch, and somewhat successful. 6
7 GWS His disposals from half-back weren’t damaging. 4
8 Haw Not significant in defence. 4
9 WAFL Responded to demotion with 25 touches, seven marks. -
10 StK OK but not a standout in any aspect. 4
11 Ess The ball wasn’t in defence much. Quiet. 4
12 Bris Made the most of his 13 possessions, running at 100 per cent efficiency. 5
13 Port Pushed forward at times. His tackling was also good. 5
14 Coll Low key but honest soldier. 5
16 Melb Mopped up well at times in the back half and got better as the game wore on. 6
17 Geel Did well both in defence and drifting forward for a goal. Handy effort. 6
18 GCS Ran at 100% efficiency with his nine touches. 3
19 Syd Didn’t do much. The backline was under siege. 4
20 Senior emergency.
21 WAFL Bye. -
22 GWS Swamped by the opposition after quarter time. No real impact. 5
23 WB His stats outweighed his impact. It didn’t feel like a 24 possession game. 5

2015 Season

1 Port Defended instead of being the rebounder this time. Held his own. 5
2 Geel Stats not huge but plays his role without fuss and fits in around others. 5
3 WCE Had Hill for much of day and was sturdy until, like teammates, switching off late. 5
4 Syd Ran forward for a goal. Did a great job on Heeney. 6
5 Melb Garlett caused him some concerns at times. Didn’t drop his head. 4
6 Ess Gave the team run from defence. 6
7 WB Started on Dickson but was moved when the Dog had a purple patch. 4
8 NM Calm with the ball and good defensively on Higgins. 5
9 Adel No real influence on the match. 4
10 Rich Didn’t have much of an impact in back half. Three clangers. 4
11 GCS Huge first half before tapering in second half. 6
13 Coll Field kicking horrible on occasions. Got to fix that up from half back. 4
14 Senior emergency.
15 WAFL Strong response to demotion with 30 possessions and nine marks. -
16 Carl Didn’t have a big say in the game. 4
17 Rich Steady part of back six without doing anything extraordinary. 5
18 GWS Defended well. Got his job done. 5
19 StK Honest and steady contribution. 6
20 WCE No real influence. 4
21 NM Kept busy with North small forwards. 5
22 Melb Hurt his shoulder late. Needs to recover for finals. 4
23 Shoulder.
QF Syd Had the task on Heeney and had the better of that match-up. 7
PF Haw Did a nice job in blanketing the dangerous Breust. 7

2014 Season

1 Coll Ran hard off half back and was a solid contributor. 5
2 GCS Didn’t have a significant impact but did lay five tackles to keep pressure on. 3
3 Haw Matched on Gunston at first in defence. 5
4 Ess Competed hard and provided a good link between defence and attack. 6
5 Syd Mostly matched with Brandon Jack, it was an even contest. 5
6 NM Did a good job on Thomas and found his own ball as well. Nice outing. 7
7 WCE Another hard running Docker who ran amok in space. 7
8 Port Solid in defence. Laid seven tackles. 5
9 Geel In tandem with Spurr able to nullify Cats forward-line ground players. 6
11 WB Worked hard as usual. 5
12 Adel Workmanlike effort. 5
13 Rich Underrated type who did his job with a minimum of fuss down back. 5
14 Bris Had Green for a time. Inconspicuous game. 4
15 WCE Learning the caper in new role down back but was OK. 5
16 Melb Kicked the first goal and played a solid role without starring. 5
17 GWS Kept Smith under wraps when opposed to him in a solid defensive effort. 6
18 StK Kept busy by Billings. 3
19 Carl Underrated conveyance who provided some quality rebound early. 4
20 Geel Underrated type who kicked a nice goal, ran hard and played his role. 6
21 Haw Good run from half back. Used the ball well. 7
22 Bris Another who did OK without doing anything brilliant. 5
23 Port Really good game across four quarters. 7
QF Syd Part of the Ibbotson tactic. Had to look after Reid or Goodes to help him. 6
SF Port Took Gray when resting inside 50. The Port man put on a third-quarter show. 5

PF Syd Won the ball well in close and was able to play a role on the outside too. 5
