2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Good and aggressive first half before leaving the field with a leg injury 4
2 WCE Had 18 touches in the back half but missed the target with a few. Faded late under increasing pressure. 5
3 Bris Used his raking left boot well in the early stages of the game at half, but drifted from the game at times in second half. 6
4 Coll Took Elliott for the most part and kept him under a tight rein; 25 possessions and a brace of tackles. 7
5 Geel Swept behind the ball brilliantly early in the match and while faded late he was among the better Saints. 7
6 Haw Freed up at half back and was extremely influential when the game was there to be won early. Much improved player. 8
7 GWS Got a great ability to find the ball playing a kick behind the play. Hit the target with 21 of his 29 disposals to be among best. 8
8 Carl Went down early with a hand injury and didn’t return. 1
9 Hand.
10 Hand.
11 Hand.
12 Adel Showed some grit and was prepared to get in the face of the Crows forwards all game. 6
13 NM Okay at half back with some efforts, but not a big night. 4
14 GCS Not a big day and his normally reliable kicking was astray like most around him. 4
15 Frem Had some key moments where he stood up. Did a good job. 7
16 Suspended.
17 Suspended.
18 Syd Solid game without taking control at half back. 4
19 Port Served the Saints well across halfback and won a lot of the ball. 6
20 WCE Had a lot of the ball at half back but was often caught on his wrong foot which reduced his effectiveness. 6
21 Melb Allowed Dees half forwards too much room early, then gave Hannan space in first term at key times. 4
22 NM Quieter game than usual at half back and didn’t have usual impact with kicking . 4
23 Rich Running defender struggled despite stats sheet suggesting 18 possessions. No impact on flow of game. 4
