2017 Digest:   Looked sharp in opener against Tigers and backed that up with another solid effort in JLT. On track for a big year.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GWS Run from halfback and through the midfield was electrifying. 7
2 Haw Did the job down back and provided some drive when it was required. Great start to the season from the key rebounder. 7
3 Port His rebound out of defence was crucial as the Power had 58 inside-50’s for the game. 7
4 Ess Put the icing on the cake with a goal from outside 50 to bring the Crows total to over 150 points. 8
5 GCS Used his pace to break away from the contest and booted a goal. 7
6 Rich Big goal from outside 50 on the run in the second term, is a weapon across halfback with his penetrating kick. 7
7 NM Couldn’t generate normal rebound with just a dozen possessions. Stinker. 3
8 Melb Often caught in two minds venturing forward but was okay in a team with not a lot of solid contributors. 7
9 Bris Night was marred by five of his 13 disposals being deemed clangers. Had better games. 4
10 Frem Six inside-50’s and two scoring assists, did line up a goal from outside 50 but unfortunately skewed it wide. 6
11 Geel Key playmaker managed two kicks in opening half and ended night with nine effective disposals. Not his day. 3
12 StK Played well between the 50 metre arcs, goaled after a sloppy Saints turnover in their own defensive 50. 6
13 Bye.
14 Haw His kicking is lacking the penetration of previous weeks. 5
15 Carl Run from defence was back with five rebound-50’s and pushed forward for a goal after receiving a 50m penalty. 7
16 WB His run and carry was back, so too was his long penetration kicking. 7
17 Melb 19 possessions, but wasn’t a big factor on the night off half back. 5
18 Geel Much better than last time the two sides met; 17 disposals a solid effort and was able to link well. 6
19 Coll His play on at all costs got the Crows within a remarkable victory, excellent all round game. 8
20 Port Withstood the man handling of Monfries and played his role across halfback and on the wing. 6
21 Ess Strong ball-winner in hard contests and stood up very well when Essendon surged. Kicked beautiful goal on run. 8
22 Syd Not as damaging as previous weeks, provided an outlet across halfback. 6
23 WCE Plenty run and 531m gained as he collected 23 touches. 7
QF GWS Kicked Crows first goal from outside 50, then hobbled off with a knee injury in first term. Possible ACL? 1
PF Knee.
GF Knee.

2016 Season

1 NM Twelve disposals in each half provided an even contribution. Steady. 7
2 Port Rebounded out of defensive 50 a whopping 10 times. 7
3 Rich Run off half back crucial to setting up the game. Two long-range goals were worth seeing. 8
4 Syd A good but not great game, still led rebound 50s with five. 7
5 Haw Kept the nose to the grindstone in a productive display. 6
6 Frem Took the intercept mark from the kick-in and then slotted a goal from outside 60. 7
7 WB Battled hard off the back edge of the square to provide some run and rebound. Tried hard. 6
8 Geel An absolute shocker with just six touches. 2
9 GCS Plenty of drive and made plenty of metres with his possessions. 8
10 GWS Took the game on whether driving the footy out of defence or inside-50. 7
11 StK Relived of his defensive post and is thriving as an offensive weapon at half back. 6
12 WCE Had 22 touches but not the damaging game he can sometimes have. 6
14 NM Played more on the wing than half back and produced seven inside-50s. 6
15 Melb Steady with eight tackles and four inside-50s. Did his bit from half back. 6
16 Carl Good first half then drifted out of the game after the main break. 5
17 Coll His best match this season, took the game on when it mattered. 8
18 Geel Grabbed 10 disposals in first term then only 10 more for the match – 13 effective. 5
19 Ess Five inside-50s and three rebound-50s, played well between the 50m arcs. 7
20 Bris Eight tackles, four inside-50s and a superb goal at the end of the third term. 7
21 Frem Had 21 disposals but not damaging. 5
22 Port Left the game with concussion after an accidental hit to the head from Young. 3
23 Concussion.
EF NM Huge game. Iced it with two goals in the final term after controlling half back. 8
SF Syd Not anywhere near as effective as previous weeks. Rarely penetrating. 4

2015 Season

1 NM Given the freedom to push up the ground and he didn’t disappoint. 6
2 Coll Close to best on ground before being knocked out in the last term. 8
3 Melb Not at his fluent best but still a more than even contributor. 6
4 WB Not the worst but not the normal impact on game. 5
5 Port Not his penetrating self, played on the wing with minimal impact. 6
6 GCS Trademark run and carry shut down by Suns forwards. 4
7 StK Subbed out after a sickening head collision with Riewoldt. 3
8 Concussion.
9 Concussion.
10 Carl Only half his possessions hit the target. Five inside-50s, four rebounds. 5
12 Haw Elite leg but his efficiency on the night was wanting. 6
13 Bris Amongst it first half but let down overall with half of his 18 touches ineffective. 6
15 WCE Didn’t hurt the Eagles with his possessions. 5
16 Port Started as the plus-one, but forced to mark man after Talia went down. 5
17 GCS Started on the wing but drifted into defence to assist his fellow defenders. 6
18 Syd Good game as usual 6
19 Rich Getting back to the form that won him All-Australian honours last season. 6
20 Ess Warmed into the task after slow start and was handy. Kicked one long goal. 6
21 Bris Wants to be released into the midfield but still damaging in defence. 7
22 WCE Best game of the year with his rebound and speed around the contest. 8
23 Geel Started brightly but injured ankle and subbed out before half time. 3
EF WB On dangerous Dickson and had problems but also contributed. 6
SF Haw Not a big game. 3

2014 Season

1 Geel Went to Bartel at times in second half and handy defensively. Contributor. 6
2 Port Along with Douglas the Crows’ best player, his long kicking a highlight. 7
3 Syd Revelling at half back and on the wing. 6
4 StK Ran free in defence and constantly set up attacks from half back. 7
5 GWS Rebounded out of the defensive 50 at will. 7
6 WB Kicking penetration off half back and wing was important in second half. 6
7 Melb If club champion was decided now it would be a two-horse race with Danger. 8
9 Coll The Crows best rebounding defender and reader of the play. 8
10 Carl Menzel kicked two goals on him early. Not his best effort this year. 4
11 GCS Along with Mackay and Jaensch continually repelled the Suns forward entries. 8
12 Frem Had a very good day until hurting thigh late. 7
13 NM Six rebounds out of defensive 50 and a goal. 8
14 Ess Broke clear late after being well held by Hocking in the first half. 6
15 Port The in-form defender was worked over by Port’s resting midfielders up forward. 3
16 GWS Giants put work into him with tags from Bugg and Palmer. Still had a fair game 6
17 Haw With the return of Henderson has been unleashed into the midfield. 7
18 Coll Best afield. Worked both ends of ground, hit targets and added two goals. 9
19 WCE Played as the plus one but not as effective as previous weeks. 6
20 Bris Sound four quarters in defence. 6
21 Rich Disappointing game from one of Adelaide’s prime movers. 4
22 NM Solid game without starring. 4
23 StK Prolific ball winner and was at the top of his game. 7

2013 Season

1 Collarbone.
2 Collarbone.
3 Collarbone.
4 SANFL Linked well for the Eagles with 17 touches. -
5 Carl First game back and moved well throughout. Will only get better. 6
6 Haw Since coming back from a long injury lay off has returned to form quickly. 7
7 GWS Handy job in minding Shiel. 6
8 StK Picked up Milne and Saad and ran well out of defence. 6
9 NM Went to Thomas and was at least able to shut him out in the final term. 5
10 Frem Continues to give the team drive off half back. 6
11 Syd Was effective in restricting McGlynn 6
12 Rich Hardly sighted playing across half back. Doesn’t win enough footy. 3
14 GCS Another Crow to slip under the guard and relished the freedom. 6
15 WCE Continues to develop into one the game’s best rebounding defenders. 6
16 Coll Found himself matched on Reid in second term, which wasn’t good. 5
17 Geel Used across half back and got under guard to play a nice role. 6
18 Frem Used the ball well by hand and foot and provided a link through midfield. 6
19 Port Rebounded the footy five times out of defensive 50. 6
20 NM OK game without starring. 4
21 WB Toiled away down back on Dickson/Dahlhaus. Better on the latter than the former. 5
22 Melb Had the difficult task of playing on Howe and was good. 6
23 WCE Comfortably despatched Hill and also used speed out of defence. 7

2012 Season

1 GCS Worked into it after a quiet first half. 4
2 WB Equally as effective getting the footy inside or rebounding out of 50. 6
3 Haw In defence. Started well and tapered. 4
4 GWS Tough conditions for the wingman still collected 21 disposals. 6
5 Port Struggling to find the footy at the moment, needs to lift. 3
6 Syd Was reliable and steady to be one of the Crows’ better players. 5
7 Geel Did a fine job containing Johnson's influence. 6
8 Carl After claiming S. Johnson scalp he added Walker to the list. Kept him goalless. 6
9 Coll Playing well across half back, kicked a great goal from 50 metres out. 6
10 Frem Quiet. Had little impact. 3
12 SANFL Used the ball well all day to set up attacks. -
13 SANFL Great in defence with 26 possessions and a long goal. -
14 Rich His run from defence has been missing in recent weeks. 5
15 Port His run, carry and speed down the outer wing were a delight. 6
16 GWS The young onballer started on the bench and had a relatively quiet 3
17 WCE Rebounded the footy outside the defensive 50 on six occasions. 6
18 Geel Handy from defence with ball use and run. Looks a player. 6
19 Ess His run off half back resulted in seven rebounds out of defensive 50. 7
20 Frem Given the tough assignment on Mayne and won out. 7
22 Melb Had his hands full with Howe and was lucky the Demons didn’t kick straight. 3
23 GCS Continues to run and carry the footy out of defence well. 7
QF Syd Tried to take game on when running from defence. Spent time on Goodes. 5
SF Frem Ran well off half back and was composed even early when others struggled. 7
PF Haw Handy enough highlighted by a long goal in third term. Good year. 6
