2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Rich Hands were full all night with variety of opponents, including Martin. Looks to have improved from last year. 6
2 Melb Did well in defence to pick the right time to fold off his opponent to provide support to teammates. Going well. 7
3 Ess Beat Fantasia hands down and provided some key run for his team in what was an outstanding effort. 8
4 GCS Battled manfully again in the back half but was outsized by Wright in second half. 5
5 Port Was diligent in defence but struggled with the weight of numbers. 5
6 Syd Quiet one from former Giant. Only the 10 disposals, three tackles and two rebound 50s. 4
7 Coll Safe with the ball and was okay in defence. 5
8 StK Had his hands full with the quicker Jack Billings. Battled on well after being moved after half time. 5
9 Frem Did a good job with ball in hand in the wet. 5
10 NM Won 16 touches but form has tapered after a terrific start to the season. Beaten in some one on ones and panicked on occasions. 4
11 Bye.
12 GWS Had the task on Greene and was able to keep him goalless in what was a fine defensive effort. Greene’s inaccuracy helped. 7
13 GCS Did what he needed to do, and kept Matera's influence to a minimum. 4
14 Rich Followed Rioli as well as other Tiger smalls. Did a good job – rarely lost a contest. 6
15 Adel Did well to contain the high flying Mitch McGovern, keeping him to one goal. 5
16 Melb Had a variety of opponents and battled hard all day in another steady performance. 7
17 WB Defensively rotated through a number of opponents. Certainly not his best game but did what he could down back. 5
18 Bris Had a failed stint on Zorko. Overall a disappointing day in the office. 4
19 Geel Defender was under siege Italian Army style. Couple of times late he defender Dangerfield really well. 5
20 Ess Staunch defender plugged away when ball came into his area. Quiet offensively. 4
21 WCE Solid across half-back. Got a job done. 5
22 Haw Found a heap of ball, used it well and rarely put foot a wrong in a key defensive role. 7
23 Hip.

2016 Season

1 Hip.
2 Played in VFL trial against Port Melbourne.
3 VFL Game time managed after coming back from injury but grabbed 19 touches. -
4 WB Brilliant job curtailing Stringer in a fine debut for his new team. 6
5 Frem Bobbed up at times but had a quiet day. 3
6 Ess Went with Brown for the most part in a good battle. Not much offensively. 4
7 Coll Spent some time on the dangerous Fasolo and was useful in Blues’ defensive press. 5
8 Port Crunched by Dixon when showing courage in the hole and stood up when required. 6
9 NM Matched up on ex-Blue Waite and stuck to task although he did get away a few times. 5
10 Geel Took Kersten to the cleaners in his main role and got away enough to grab a few touches. 6
11 Bris Another solid and assured display from the emerging key defender. 6
12 StK Not the worst down back and created some rebounds from the back 50. 5
14 GWS Solid in back half on a range of opponents before coming under fire in last term. 4
15 Coll Sound in defence without setting the world on fire. Had the better of Cloke. 5
16 Adel Went to Lynch and struggled at times in the contest. Is he good enough? 3
17 WCE Took Darling (0.5). Inaccuracy helped his overall effectiveness. 5
18 Syd Serviceable effort down back on several opponents. 4
19 Haw Developing well in a key defensive post. Steady by hand and foot. 6
20 StK Had a dirty day down back as the Saints looked to use his opponent at all times. 3
21 Bris Spent time minding Walker in defence. OK. 4
22 Melb Didn’t have a big day but did little wrong in defence. 6
23 Ess Had his colours lowered down back. Looked sluggish all game. 3
