2017 Digest:   Plays a handy role at whatever level he is playing at, but needs to cement his place this year with pressure getting hotter.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Port Struggled to get his hands to leather. One round in and best guess is still a big gap between best and worst. 3
2 WB Struggled. Eight effective disposals not enough playing wing/half forward. 2
3 NEAFL Impacted the contest with 19 touches and two goals. Drove the ball inside-50 on eight occasions. -
4 WCE Got Swans’ first major and worked hard in the forward half and applied good defensive pressure. 5
5 GWS Tackled hard but wasn’t a big factor in the game. 4
6 Carl Used as a rebounding defender and okay with 16 possessions but has played better games. Didn’t hurt Blues. 4
7 Bris Shoulder problem in first term but returned to boot two goals. Made a few poor choices streaming forward. 5
8 NM Worked hard as usual but was only a minor contributor. 3
9 StK Saints couldn’t stop him running hard through the middle in second term and setting up attacking moves. 6

20 NEAFL Worked hard throughout for his 25 possessions. -
21 NEAFL Used the ball well. Had 20 possessions and was always a threat. -
22 NEAFL Played his part with 21 touches and four inside 50s. -
23 Carl Showed some toe in the last term but probably failed to do enough to hold a spot for the first final. Time will tell. 4
EF Ess Late inclusion for Melican didn’t star but did enough to make it tough to tip him out; 19 disposals. 5
SF Geel Looked as unsure as a hungry baby in a topless bar and got no love at any stage. Touched it 10 times. 3

1 Coll Chipped in with two goals in rout. Handy contributor on the night. 5
2 Carl Floated in out and out and was a threat up forward and through the middle. 6
3 GWS Failed to hurt the Giants in attack with only three kicks. 3
4 Adel Bobbed up for first goal of the game, hardly sighted afterwards. 5
5 WCE Not a big game. Rolled ankle second term but kept going. 3

7 Ess Fought hard after a slow start and was clean with ball use. 3
8 Rich Tackled hard but unable to exert any real influence on the game with ball in hand. 4
9 Haw Solid citizen across four quarters. 6
10 NM Key goal at start of third term was one of just two kicks, but linked well at stages. 4

18 Carl Solid without being spectacular down back. 4
19 Frem Not a stand out but had plenty of the ball. 5
20 Port Very good contributor until tweaking his knee and being put on ice. 6
21 StK Handy without starring. 5
22 NM Limited impact in defensive half. 3
23 Rich Struggled to get involved down back – just two touches in first half. 3

1 Ess Steady input and played his role. 6
2 Senior emergency.
3 GWS Contributed strongly. Team-high 10 marks and used the ball well. 6

5 WB Sub. Replaced Towers Couldn’t find flow of game when he came on. 1
6 NEAFL 24 touches and 10 tackles in Swans’ midfield. -
7 NEAFL Used in attack as well as midfield. 23 possessions. -
8 Haw Sub. On final term but pace of game was tough to adjust to. 1
9 Carl Played a minor role alongside established stars. Four clearances. 5
10 GCS Two goals from limited opportunities. 3
11 NM Courageous mark and a goal a highlight of an industrious game. 7
13 Rich Made Houli honest at half forward but unable to capitalise on chances. 5
14 Port Sub. On early to replace Rohan and quiet until sealed game with late goal. 3
15 Bris Sub. Thrown in for final term but struggled. Might need run in NEAFL. 1
16 Haw Not the sub this week but didn’t take advantage of the opportunity. 3
17 WCE Powerless to impact the flow of the game despite grabbing a few touches. 4
18 Adel Strong performer and ran hard. 6
19 Geel Unable to get any touches that really hurt Cats. Two inside-50s, no goals. 4
20 Coll Handy though not outstanding. 5
21 GWS Dangerous in attack with three goals and was afforded too much space. 7
22 StK Picked up by Geary and did a few nice things in attack. 5
23 GCS Three goals a confidence boosting return on eve of finals. 7
QF Frem Five inside-50s and got involved a few times through middle of ground. 5
SF NM Battled hard but impact of touches well down. Five kicks tells a story. 3

2014 Season

2 Coll Kicked a goal from a Franklin assist and got free at times. 5
3 Adel Kicked three goals, including two in two minutes in the first term. 6
4 NM Held goalless for the first time this year in a quiet afternoon. 4
5 Frem A goalkicker this year, shifted into defence and handled it with aplomb. 5
6 Melb In and out of the game for one goal but will want consistency. 4
7 Bris Kicked a goal early on but overall fairly quiet compared to his teammates. 5
8 Haw Couldn’t get into the game at all from half forward and never a factor. 2
9 Ess Drifted out of the game after some eye-catching possessions early. 4
11 Geel Sub. Joined the party and hit double-figure possessions in quick time. 2

19 Ess Ran hard and tackled strongly. 6
20 Port Torched opposition with seven clearances and three quality goals. 7
21 StK Not prominent. 3
22 WB Linked well to get involved in scoring chains. Played a part. 5

QF Frem Did a great job tagging Hill. Shut him out of the match. 7
SF -
PF NM Another who jumped out to play a role. Pace and poise a highlight. 6
