2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Booted a first quarter goal but did little else throughout the match, finishing with just the 10 possessions. 3
2 Ess Spilled several marks in first half but notably picked up his game after long break 4
3 StK In and out of the game and missed a few chances. 4
4 Rich Used in attack and on the wing and did a few notable things but possibly not enough for a player in his sixth season. 4
5 NEAFL Worked hard to press his claims for a senior recall. Good outing. -
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 NEAFL Okay early and kicked a goal. Sat out second half as a senior emergency. -
8 Haw Did the inside work as he always does, but just lacks any class to become a legitimate threat. 4
9 Adel Skill errors, slow to react and overall had a forgetful night. 4
10 NEAFL Strong contributor with 32 possessions, six clearances and six inside 50s. -
11 Bye.
12 NEAFL One of his better games this year. Had 29 possessions, but also tackled well and was good at stoppages. -
13 NEAFL A bull around the stoppages. Too big and strong for Southport to handle. -
14 NEAFL Hard worker until bad leg injury in final term ended his day. -

2016 Season

1 WCE Strong around contests and set up scoring opportunities. 6
2 NM Could only muster 13 possessions. Lions needed more from him. 4
3 Geel Former Blue battled hard to provide a spark. Six inside-50s and two goals a good reward. 7
4 GCS Impressive work-rate early and largely why Brisbane was still in at long break. 7
5 WB 19 possessions but they were often wayward and didn’t hit the target. Not his best night. 5
6 Syd Soldiered on although downside is that he failed to kick a goal in an attacking role. 6
7 Port Dropped two marks in the third term which would have led to shots on goal. 6
8 Coll Tried to get into the game by running hard at packs. Overall disappointing. 4
9 Melb Kicked three goals, including two in the second term to be leading goalkicker. 6
10 Haw A real positive up forward with three of his four goals coming in the second term. 6
11 Carl Fumbled badly and had one to forget against his former club. 2
12 Frem Spent most of the night in attack but not dangerous enough 2

21 NEAFL Bye. -
22 Geel Looked dangerous at times lurking up forward. Ended day with two goals. 6
23 StK OK at times and fought hard against the tide of the game. 4

2015 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Worked hard all night and never stopped running. 7
2 WCE Great running goal early and a few dashing runs but wasted ball at times. 5
3 Ess Tried hard but under pressure a lot and only two inside-50s. 4
4 StK Vital goals in third quarter and used strength to good effect. 7
5 Coll Good in patches but kicking unreliable. 6
6 Bris Among Carlton’s best. Attacked when he could and won plenty of ball. 7
7 GWS Battled hard but wasn’t a major factor in midfield or up forward. 4
8 Geel One clearance. One tackle. 4
9 Syd Worked hard to be a link player and never stopped trying. Among best. 6
10 Adel Work-rate huge but let himself down with poor disposal too often. 5
12 Port Disposal let him down at times but work-rate enormous. Four inside-50s. 7
13 GCS Racked up stats and worked hard to win the ball in close. Among best. 8
14 WB Even battle with fellow big-bodied mid Bontempelli. 6
15 Rich Tried hard but only four inside-50s and some average disposal. 5
16 Frem Influential. Kicked two goals, laid seven tackles. 7
17 Haw Used forward for periods without success. One long goal a highlight. 4
18 NM Went toe to toe with Ziebell and was resoundingly beaten. 4
19 Coll Used his big frame and power well at stages but kicking was agricultural. 6
20 Bris Worked hard first three quarters before fading. 7
21 Melb Stationed forward for a lot of the day and gave his all. Solid throughout. 6
22 GWS One of the few Blues’ to continued to battle hard throughout the game. 6
23 Haw Battled hard all evening against the tide. Is it his last game in Navy Blue? 6

20 GCS A breakout performance by the 23-year-old. 19 disposals, four goals.. 8
21 Geel Strong work around ball a feature of his game. Five inside-50s to boot. 6
