2017 Digest:   Former Dog looks to have finally got his body right and showed he will be a very handy pick-up. Smart ball user.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WCE Did a few nice things – including one smart finish, but wasn’t a big factor on the day. 5
2 Geel Former Bulldog played in patches without setting the world alight. Got on the end of it a few times from a wing. 5
3 GWS Lively as a high forward but not a great deal came of his 20 touches. 6
4 WB Former Dog relished crack at former side and was busy around the ball. Influence not huge with one inside-50 and two tackles. 6
5 Frem Kicked a brilliant goal in the final term. Also had 21 disposals. 6
6 GCS Looks to be a real asset and one of the better pick-ups this year. Neat and effective. 7
7 Adel Got a bit of the ball and had a hand in a few North scores. Topped off day with nice goal on the run in final term. 6
8 Syd Busy and involved little player early, but dropped out after half time. 5
9 Melb Three inside-50s and linked well a times off a wing. Didn’t star but played a role in the victory; 15 disposals. 5
10 Carl Lively early but rarely sighted in the second and third. Like many Kangas lifted with some telling possessions in the last term. 5
11 Rich Struggled big time. Had 17 possessions but fact only four were kicks. One inside-50 and three tackles. 4
12 Bye.
13 StK Slow start but had a much better second half and did his bit in the last hour. 5
14 WB Against old side the wingman flitted in and out of the contest. One goal and six tackles to go with 266 metres gained. 6
15 GCS Did not feature a lot. Booted an early goal and just the four kicks. 3
16 Frem Quiet day despite his stats. Buzzed about but minimal impact. 4
17 Port Pushed forward to get North Melbourne’s first goal of the game against the run of play. 5
18 Ess Had it 21 times but didn’t use it particularly well. 4
19 Melb Had some smart touches in the front half. Okay without starring. 5
20 Coll Buzzed around the half forward line and made no impact on the contest. 3
21 Haw Very quiet, but got a few touches late. Just six kicks and no goals for a small forward. Run in the VFL perhaps? 3
22 StK Bagged two goals but wasn’t a big ball winner. 4
23 Bris Showed some polish around forward line at times. 5
