2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Coll 14 tackles an indication of his night at the office trying to stop Pie mids. Only two kicks, however. 5
2 Syd Played his role and played it well. Iced game with a goal and seven tackles playing forward and midfield. 7
3 Frem Worked hard. Collected 24 possessions and won four clearances. 6
4 NM Couldn’t question workrate and commitment but lacks the poise and polish to put opponent in the hurt locker. Effort huge. 6
5 Bris Kicking still lets him down. Missed a goal from 11 metres out. Couldn’t question effort but not the polish to match. 4
6 GWS Started pretty well but faded like an acid wash pair of jeans when the game went up a notch. 4
7 Rich Surprising to see him take ruck role a couple of bounces. Added plenty of run around the field in a good game. 7
8 WCE Quality game. His clearance work and ball winning was crucial. 7
9 Geel Six tackles, four inside-50s and 24 disposals a handy effort. Only downside is his lack of poise at times with ball in hand. 6
10 StK Plenty of handballs in strong start and maintained a steady output in the midfield. 6
11 Bye.
12 Syd Another Bulldog who struggled to get into the game. 4
