2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Former Cat struggled - 17 disposals. Doesn't find footy enough and doesn't impact when he does. 4
2 Melb Did some handy things but lacked the required class at crucial moments. 5
3 Had 21 touches and laid six tackles in midfield battle after being dropped from seniors. Steady outing.
4 PM 22 touches and a goal. Worked hard on the outside to cover off exits, and got forward too. -
5 VFL One of the Blues' best in win over the Seagulls. Had 28 touches, six inside-50s and four score assists. -
6 Syd Former Cat kicked sealing goal late in game but up to that point had struggled. Disposal continues to let him down. 3
7 Coll Can’t fault his intentions: a big smother and strong late tackle, but playing for his career. 2
8 Knee.
9 VFL Excellent effort on the wing. Had 26 touches and seven inside 50s in the win. -
10 Senior emergency.
11 Bye.
12 VFL Not a massive outing, but kicked two important goals in the overall context of the game. -
13 Senior emergency.
14 Rich No impact in first half and run down twice. Will be sweating when Round 15 teams are announced. 3

16 VFL One of the better Blues on the day. 24 touches, seven inside 50s and nine tackles. -
17 Rested.
18 VFL Made some strong tackling efforts and was generally clean and composed around the ground. -
19 VFL What he did was good but wasn't enough of it. Needs to find more of the ball as an inside midfielder. -
20 Ess Couldn’t get near it. Five possessions for the day. Blues starting to winder why they traded for him. 1
21 WCE A quiet night. Had 11 touches. 4
22 Haw Concussed in the 3rd term and played no further part. Struggled before that, but still laid 8 tackles which suggests he worked hard. 3
23 Syd Failed again to make the most of an opportunity afforded to him. Only the 8 disposals. 3
