2017 Digest:   Still quite young and a great size (190cm, 89kg) for the midfield. Rarely mentioned in same breath as others but is very handy.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Just a game from the second-string mid: often under pressure with the ball. 4
2 Rich Struggling for clean possession and often looks as though he miskicks the ball. 3
3 Syd Rotated through midfield and was given a few different roles, but played his part when required. 6
4 StK Second-tier mid came off the bench to put in his usual honest display (19 possessions, a goal). 5
5 Ess Relished the slippery scrap and won 27 possessions, breaking out of the stoppages on occasions. 6
6 Geel Got under guard of Cats to grab 25 disposals. Importantly 21 of them hit the target given efficiency is his issue. 7
7 Carl Nine effective disposals, three score involvements – not really enough from the second-rotation mid. 4
8 GWS Effective target as a tall midfielder, and a reliable source of drive. 6
9 Haw Barely sighted in first half after starting on the bench, but tackled well and turned in a fine last quarter. 5
10 Bris Five inside-50s to go with 22 touches a handy afternoon. Able to link well at times off half back and through the wing. 7
11 Frem Had high numbers and was more outside and running with the ball. 6
12 Melb Spent time down back on Garlett/Petracca among others. Unable to impact flow of contest offensively. 4
13 Bye.
14 Port Used across half back and won his share of ball (27 disposals). Impact not commensurate with stat totals. 5
15 Haw Played up ground early before heading back into defence to play a deeper role. Certainly not a noteworthy performance. 4
16 Ess Probably on of the better Pies. Defended well one-on-one and was able to win 22 possessions. Steady. 7
17 GCS Used the ball well and worked hard defensively with seven tackles. 6
18 WCE Might have found his best role off the halfback line. Strong effort. 7
19 Adel Didn’t find a lot of the footy but was good with the footy in hand. 4
20 NM Started proficiently in first term and was able to maintain that pace. Relishing new role off halfback. 7
21 Port Kicking was a little off but was more than effective with seven tackles, five clearances and three inside-50’s. 7
22 Geel Won a mountain of ball early then only managed nine possessions for remainder of the game for 19 in total. 5
23 Melb Used in defence and was okay without doing anything earth-shattering. 5

2016 Season

1 Syd Another with a high tackle count who worked his way into the game, but little impact. 4
2 Rich Better performance than previous week. Contributed five tackles, one inside-50. 5
3 StK Looked dangerous at times and at least tried to create some run and carry for team. Not the worst. 6
4 Melb Quiet first half (six effective disposals) and ditto second – one inside-50s, two clearances. 4
5 Ess Got back into some form with five clearances and plenty of ball. Confidence booster. 6
6 WCE One of the better midfielders. Won the ball well and gave the team some run. 6
7 Carl Used on a wing and across half forward. OK but not reaching the heights of last season. 5
8 Bris Solid opening term (six disposals) but only 14 on a night the Magpies dominated. 5
9 Geel Huge first half key to setting up win and ran with Dangerfield at times. Eight inside-50s. 7
10 WB Worked hard for four quarters with tackling and effort at ground level. 6
11 Port Numbers were OK but wasn’t a factor for much of the day in midfield. 5
12 Melb Midfielder struggled to do any damage. Under pressure all day and as a result has seven kicks. 3
14 Frem Energetic in the middle early, and although quieter in second half was effective. 6
15 Carl Laid four tackles but overall a quiet night in the midfield. 3
16 GWS OK game without starring. 5
17 Adel Four inside-50s and two fine goals in the second term. 7
18 NM Began on Dal Santo. Steady without starring. Tackled hard. 5
19 WCE Battled hard to keep the ball moving the Magpies way and chimed in with important goal. 6
20 Rich Arguably side’s best as played four solid quarters. Six clearances, five tackles. 7
21 WB Steady contributor in midfield where he also applied pressure. 6
22 GCS Big start with 11 possessions in first term and ended with two goals. Good contributor. 7
23 Haw Burrowed in well and among better players. Seven clearances. 7

2015 Season

1 Bris Broke even with Bewick on a wing. 6
2 Adel Couldn’t convert opportunities in front of goals. Five inside 50s. 5
3 StK Impressive game in all respects. Looks to be a fine pick-up. 7
4 Ess Had the job to quell Watson and make himself a handy contributor too. 7
5 Carl Proving a valuable acquisition in midfield, playing off opposition guns. 6
6 Geel Negating mid whose lack of breakaway pace is only real knock. 5
7 Rich Among Pies’ best again. Two goals, six inside-50s and two score assists. 7
8 GCS Got plenty of the footy and made nine clearances. 6
9 NM Relished the heavy going – especially late and kicked a good long goal. 7
10 Melb Thrown run-with role on N Jones and found that tough. OK himself. 5
11 GWS Continues strong first season at club in midfield. Two big goals. 8
13 Frem Spent time matching motors with Fyfe and while found it tough kept battling. 6
14 Haw Excellent first half and never let up. 7
15 Port Smooth mover was a consistent contributor. 7
16 WCE Started in middle and was good again. 6
17 WB One of his quietest games in new colors. Couldn’t break free. 4
18 Melb Up-and-down with no obvious tag. Third game in a row without a goal. 5
19 Carl Steady in midfield then went to the lively Murphy late to try to rein him in. 6
20 Syd Another good game and his last quarter goal gave hope. 6
21 Rich Battled away for five inside-50s and two clearances but not a decisive factor. 5
22 Geel Used the ball much better than previous week and had nine inside-50s. 8
23 Ess One clearance, no inside-50s and one goal. Not a big afternoon. 5
