2017 Digest:   Lively debut included two nifty goals. Gives the Pies flexibility and X factor – and a touch more class.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Had his moments, including a nice late goal; 20 touches off a win a satisfactory debut in black and white. 6
2 Rich Showed a touch of class and three goals from half forward kept the Pies in it. 6
3 Syd Excellent start and kicked a monster goal in the final term that proved to be the difference. Took 10 marks. 7
4 StK Classical wingman (sorry, “outside mid”) contributed another two goals (seven for year) and six inside 50s. 6
5 Ess Unsighted in first term but some decisive goal involvements in second. A fair weather player. 3
6 Geel Relished space afforded to him by Cats in first half (12 disposals) and backed up with another 14 after main break. One goal. 8
7 Carl Wingman did most of his work helping the backline. One-touch play good but lack of awareness/urgency twice cost goals. 4
8 GWS Active early against former club running a wing, but less impact when the game closed up. 4
9 Haw Fifteen kicks and six tackles a decent night out on the MCG wing. 5
10 Bris Conditions probably didn’t suit his outside style and as a result only flitted in and out of the game. Very minor role. 4
11 Frem Kicked two goals and one was an absolute ripper. His run was important. 6
12 Melb Former Giant started well but faded out of the game. Managed five possessions after half-time when Dees got on top. 4
13 Bye.
14 Port Deployed across half back for the entirety of the contest and ended day with x possessions. Tried hard for his team. 6
15 Haw Quiet early and while lifted he was rarely able to influence the flow of the game; four inside-50s. 5
16 Ess Couldn’t hit a handball. For a player who was top three pick he lacks real precision and creativity; 22 disposals. 4
17 GCS Roamed around on the wing for majority of the evening and did some neat things. 6
18 WCE Really coming into his own. Solid contributor all day. 7
19 Adel Hit the scoreboard when the Pies were flying drifted out of the game in the second half. 5
20 NM Steady contributor across the evening. Not his most proficient outing but played his role on the wings. 5
21 Port Copped a heavy knock in the second term, played well in the second half including a great goal from a tight angle in the third term. 6
22 Geel Half-forward wingman started with a bang but ended with a puff of smoke. Nine effective touches and two goals. 5
23 Melb Floated in and out, but took some nice marks – 12 in total. Late goal killed off the game. 7
