2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Carl Former Cat kicked one nice goal but overall wasn't a huge factor - 17 disposals in total. 5
2 Coll Played forward a fair bit where he was a presence but managed only one goal. Fair night at the office. 5
3 WCE Game to forget for Josh. No impact whatsoever. 3
4 Bris Bagged a clever goal off a pack in third term and was a worthy contributor. 6
5 Melb Butchered the ball by foot for much of the night but had some key involvements that proved pivotal. 6
6 Adel His major highlight was six tackles, not good enough when you are one of the team’s midfield stoppage leaders. 3
7 WB Prominent with nine touches and three clearances in first term. Didn’t keep that up for the remainder but was solid. 6
8 Frem Kicked goals in first and last quarters but in between times he struggled to impact the game. Got done for leg speed at times. 4
9 Groin.
10 Ess Long set shot goal in first term but off target overall to end with 2.4. Puts blinkers on at times; seven effective disposals. 5
11 NM Grabbed a lot of possessions (22) and hit target with 19 of them. Only gained 127 meters s influence not pronounced. 5
12 Bye.
13 Syd Started forward with Grundy his man. Did a few good things, but needs to have greater impact, 5
14 Carl Embarrassingly scuffed kick in first term, but won some hard footy and had 22 touches. Okay. 6
15 Port Seven tackles, four clearances and two inside-50’s, provides the Tigers with midfield depth. 6
16 StK Not amid the action in first half and missed some chances, but lifted a bit later on. 4
17 Bris Poor first half, but improved after the main break. 5
18 GWS Another game where he teased but ultimately failed to deliver anything meaningful; 14 possessions. 4
19 GCS Found plenty of space in the first half, booting two goals before fading out in second half. 5
20 Haw Played predominantly across half forward and busy as a one-beaked woodpecker. Four goals and 28 possessions. 8
21 Geel Kicked the first goal, but injured hamstring early and didn’t return. 1
22 Hamstring.
23 Hamstring.
QF Geel Former Cat relished crack at former club with two goals from 17 possessions. 7
PF GWS Didn’t always hit the target but found space in the front half to be a nuisance. 6
GF Adel Settled side with first goal, which proved important. Did the right ting at the right time. 6

2016 Season

8 Adel Quiet first half (two kicks) and awareness not great at times. One goal. 4
9 Coll Five effective to half time just not enough. Did lift but effectiveness was well down. 5
