2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Pies' new set-shot momentum drainer taking over from departed Cloke. Fluffed three sitters, although atoned with three in play. 5
2 Rich Has replaced Cloke as the momentum drainer in the Magpie attack: 0.6 from set shots this season. 3
3 Syd On fire with a four-goal first half but then cooled off. Missed one late, but in the end, his opening barrage was huge. 7
4 StK Early goal and stiff not to have one or two more, but kept in check by Geary. Carrying a sore arm. 4
5 Ess Presented well and played with energy but his finishing (1.3) a frustrating momentum drainer again. 4
6 Geel One kick in first half and six for the match. Two goals but for the most part wasn’t a huge factor. 4
7 Carl Struggled for impact after notching Pies’ first from a free kick and nailing the set shot. Struggled to win the ball thereafter. 4
8 GWS Went forward and presented well, although like Elliott plays as a target forward, not a pressure/front-centre player. 6
9 Haw Playing like he needs a decent spell in the VFL. Perhaps conscious of his injured shoulder but hopelessly out of form. 2
10 Bris Chimed in with 2.4 and could easily have kicked five in a good battle against Robertson. 6
11 Ill.
12 Melb After week out he struggled to find the ball. Two goals but for most part wasn’t a factor that caused Dees too many issues. 4
13 Bye.
14 Port Looked only dangerous forward in first half with two goals. Shut down by Clurey in the second half. 4
15 Haw Two goals in third term and another in third made him the team’s most dangerous small forward; 17 disposals. 7
16 Ess Ended day with four goals which was a pretty solid effort given scoreline against the team. 7
17 GCS Seemed set for a big night with two early goals. No further scores but still was dangerous. 7
18 WCE Looks like he is enjoying his footy again. Floated in and out, but was lively and bouncy when he was in the contest. Kicked sealer. 5
19 Adel Was well held by Luke Brown and unusually didn’t hit the scoreboard. 4
20 NM Got Collingwood’s forward line going early by dominating Nielson early. Faded heavily as the game wore on. 6
21 Port Not the result he was looking for in his 100th game, wasn’t clean with his hands early which affected his confidence. 4
22 Shoulder.
23 Shoulder.

2016 Season

1 Syd Looked threatening early until a head knock after a big fly seemed to curtail his exuberance. 4
2 Rich Six-goal return proved match-winning. Clean hands, timing and attack on ball brilliant. 9
3 StK Managed two goals (after six last week) with Geary wearing him like a glove. Struggled. 3
4 Melb Jetta wore him like a glove. To his credit he worked super hard but things didn’t fall his way. 5
5 Ess Relished weight of ball up Pies end and ended day with four goals. Lively all day. 8
6 WCE Did some desperate work up the field but couldn’t get shots at goal. 5
7 Carl Probably the Pies’ best with four goals and kept them in the game. Going very well. 8
8 Bris Kicked the last goal of the game but otherwise troubled by Gardiner’s defensive work. 5
9 Geel Two first-term goals then Bews able to keep him goalless. 4
10 WB Opened with a goal and in the thick of the action in first half. Shoulder in third. 5
11 Shoulder.
12 Shoulder.
13 Shoulder.
14 Shoulder.
15 Shoulder.
16 GWS Main input was back-to-back goals crucial in giving the Pies impetus. Shoulder? 5
17 Shoulder.
18 NM Rarely sighted until last-term goal. 2
19 Shoulder.
20 Shoulder.
21 Shoulder.
22 Shoulder.
23 Shoulder.

13 Frem Goal in each of opening two terms then drifted out of game after half time. 6
14 Haw Quiet early then three crucial misses in third term. 4
15 Port Needs to make the most of his limited opportunities on goal. 5

17 WB Just one kick and couldn’t get clear of Morris. 2
18 Melb Collingwood’s only winner up forward. Finishing was hit and miss, however. 7
19 Carl Continued fine form. Four goals and 10 score involvements to play a key role. 8
20 Syd Not potent enough in attack. 3
21 Rich Coach had seen enough by half time. Subbed out. Didn’t appear injured. 1
22 Geel Ended with three goals and could have kicked five if not for inaccuracy. 6

2012 Season

1 Haw Kicked two goals late second term but well held for the rest of game 5
2 Rich Developing well and instrumental in decisive third quarter. 5
3 Carl Bobbed up at times but not often enough to be influential. 5
4 Port Good third quarter in which he grabbed eight of his 14 disposals. 4
5 Ess Didn’t hit scoreboard but nipped in on a couple of occasions. 4
6 WB Seemed to carry knee injury and only goal came in final term (at key time). 3
8 Geel Six shots (3.2 including match-winner, one on the full) a valuable return. 7
9 Adel Quiet game from the half forward with no real impact on proceedings. 2
10 GCS Selfish a couple of times but relished the trouncing to kick two goals. 6

14 Frem Didn’t hit the scoreboard but lively around half forward with his ball use. 6
15 Carl Lively at half forward and a key in first half but drifted out of the game. 7
16 Geel Used footy well and was lively at half forward – two goals, four inside-50s. 7
17 Haw Good first term when others struggled and played with zip again. 7
18 GWS In such a dominant team performance, failed to have much impact. 4
19 StK Won’t want to see one effort again but added a goal and five inside-50s. 5
20 Syd Worked his way into the game nicely, kicking a third-term goal. 6
21 NM Early goal, but a little subdued and missed several crucial shots. 5

23 Ess Busy in first half and kept up momentum. Clean hands and marked well. 7
QF Haw Matched against Stratton. OK without starring. 5
