2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 WB Went to Stringer and Cloke at times and contested every issue. Looks an upgrade on the departed Brown. 4
2 Rich No job too difficult is his motto. Left foot is safe and he gets far more involved in attack than his departed predecessor Brown. 6
3 Syd Humungous task on Buddy in his 250th. In his wildest dreams, he wouldn’t have thought he could keep him goalless. He did. 8
4 StK Took Membrey/Bruce and continued to add to his claims as Magpie recruit of the year. 5
5 Ess Harried Daniher but the big Don got his tail up when rucking and became the match-winner. 4
6 Geel Had job on Taylor and did reasonably well. Did get caught a few times in the back half but will learn from experience. 5
7 Rested.
8 GWS A power of trouble with Cameron and had to be moved to Lobb. Nightmare first half as five goals kicked on him but fought it out. 3
9 Haw Conceded three to Sicily in first half. After impressing on arrival, now enduring a nightmare spell. 3
10 Bye.
11 VFL Improved as the game wore on down back and was solid when it mattered late. -
12 VFL Had better days. Will look to bounce back in coming weeks. -
13 Bye.
14 VFL Held up well in the back half and won a bit of his own footy. -
15 VFL Part of a defence that kept the Dogs at arms length. Had 18 touches too. -
16 VFL Strong game in defence to help keep the Cats at bay. -
17 VFL A shell of the player he was at the start of the year. Poor defensively and spot on list suddenly seems in question. -
18 VFL Better than last week, which wasn't hard. Showed aggression in the last term to stand up for a teammate, but it didn't kill that contest. -
19 Concussion.
20 VFL Okay game in defence to help keep the Bees at bay. -
21 Hamstring.
22 Hamstring.
23 Hamstring.
