2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Geel Horror game against former club. Looked nervous, fluffed marks and fumbled his way through the night. 2
2 Port Made some impact in the third term goal and contested marking. 5
3 WB Kicked two goals – one from a handball in the square – and found his confidence. 5
4 Melb Struggled until final term when gathered a handful of key touches that were able to help keep Dees at bay. 4
5 NM Kicked the winning goal with a great snap. If he played in front, he’d get more chances. 5
6 WCE Barely sighted in the first half. Kicked two goals in the third term. 4
7 Ess His best game. Kicked 2.3 and set up another goal. Moved well and was dangerous. 7
8 Rich Best game for the club. Kicked two goals, 11 marks and provided an option across half forward. 7
9 Carl Did well again. Kicked two goals and provided a target. 6
10 Adel The footy didn’t get there often enough but when it did Kersten offered very little. 3
11 Coll Struggled to get into the match. 3
12 Bris Never looked comfortable and too easily pushed off ball. Well beaten by Gardiner. 3
13 Bye.
14 Geel Former Cat couldn’t get into the game at all with Kolodjashnij on his wheel. Two behinds for the day. 1
15 WAFL Kicked two goals but only had six possessions. Needs to do more. -
16 NM Booted the two goals, but wasn’t sighted in between them. Just eight touches. 4
17 WCE Battled. Needs to compete a lot harder. 3
18 Haw Kicked two goals and spent time in defence too. A big step forward. 6
19 GWS Three first half goals were huge. Finally made himself a presence and his work rate was excellent when moving up the ground. 7
20 GCS Kicked two goals. He’s improved a lot in recent weeks. 6
21 Syd Deserves a Logie for his performance as the invisible man. 1
22 Groin.
23 Ess No impact up forward so was thrown into defence late. 2

2016 Season

3 Bris Three goals all came in the final term in a timely confidence booster. 6
4 Calf.
5 Port Chimed in with two goals, one from a nice mark. Modest stats but played his role. 4

9 Coll Run of form came to an end but did show some courage at times. No goals. 3
10 Carl Couldn’t get into the game at all up forward. No goals, which is a worry. 2
11 GWS Kicked 2.2 from eight kicks in a reasonable return to form after two quiet ones. 6
12 NM Horrible first half then came to life with three third-term goals to spark side. 6
13 WB Failed to get into the game at all but one act of courage in defence earned respect. 2
14 StK Couldn’t get into the game at all. Four marks and one goal. One tackle. 2
16 VFL Four goals to go with fiver marks, seven inside-50s and five tackles. Cats’ best. -
17 Frem Stats modest but helped set up a goal through courage. Got to keep playing him. 4
18 Adel Great first half when game at its hottest. Faded slightly but played a role. 5
19 VFL Couldn’t get into the game at all up forward. One effective kick for the day. -
20 VFL Dangerous with a couple of goals early but sat out second half as a precaution. -
21 Rich Couldn’t get into the game to any great degree. Five marks, no shots at goal. 3
22 Bris Didn’t take opportunity. Kicked a goal late but for most part quiet. 3
