Age: 23yr 7mth Games: 55 Born: Nov 08, 1995
Height: 183cm Weight: 80kg Position:

2017 Digest:   Appears far from established. Skills are neat, hands good. Jury’s out though as he still looks like a junior making his way.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Ill.
2 Rich Returned on a wing but still looks (and plays) like a first-year player. Lacks penetration in his play. 2
3 Senior emergency.
4 VFL In and out of the game without his usual impact at this level in midfield. -
5 VFL Okay without having a big impact overall in heavy loss to Essendon. 18 possessions. -
6 VFL Played off half back and wasn’t as efficient as Pies would have liked. Just 50 percent efficiency from eight kicks. -
7 VFL Steady outing with 25 possessions in midfield and across half back. One of the few Pies winners. -
8 GWS Even in his 49th AFL game he still looks like a first-year player, although did pick up the tempo a little. 3
9 Haw Started on a wing and while he gets to the ball OK he’s just not a factor at this level. Off with hit to cheekbone. 2
10 Cheekbone.
11 Cheekbone.
12 Melb Steady effort highlighted by four clearances, a goal and six score involvements. Didn’t star but played a role team. 6
13 Bye.
14 Port Mixed good bad. Helmet makes him look smaller than he is. Looked slow at times and will be nervous at team selection. 3
15 VFL Just fair with 19 possessions and a couple of clearances. -
16 VFL One of the Magpies best on a wing and through the middle. 28 touches and a goal. -
17 VFL Started behind the contest and finished with just 10 disposals at 50 per cent efficiency. Moved ok, though. -
18 Concussion.
19 VFL Showcased his contested prowess and led the way in midfield with 27 disposals, five inside 50s and seven tackles. -
20 VFL Very good in midfield. 23 possessions, seven clearances, 13 tackles and seven inside 50s. -
21 Port A maybe game for James Aish, did some effective work with the ball in hand, needs to find more of the footy. 5
22 Geel Struggled to get into the game playing a defensive midfield role. Grabbed 16 possessions for the day. 4
23 Melb Had some iffy moments, but played a role in the end. 5

2016 Season

1 Played in VFL trial against Coburg.
2 Rich Looked a yard off the pace and gained minus 10 metres for his team. One goal. 2
3 StK Struggled for second week in a row. When he did get the ball he did very little damage with it. 2
4 Melb One contest early wasn’t acceptable. Struggling and then injured shoulder and restricted. 4
5 Ess Form is a concern. Six kicks and only two inside-50s. Back to VFL? 3
6 Senior emergency.
7 Carl One kick (ineffective) in first three quarters after starting on wing. Not sure he’s going to make it. 2
8 VFL Responded well to AFL axing with 22 possessions in hard-fought win. -
9 VFL Solid outing in midfield with 24 disposals and three inside-50s. -
10 VFL Bye. -
11 VFL Good return to form with 25 possessions, but highlight was his defensive work. -
12 VFL Huge effort in conditions that one would expect him to struggle in. Put up hand for recall. -
13 VFL Bye. -
14 Frem Started on Pearce and neither had an impact. 3
15 Carl Arguably his best game in the Collingwood colours. Something to build on. 6
16 GWS Couple of handy efforts but still needs to do more. 4
17 Adel Has added a tougher edge to his game to complement his outside skills. 6
18 NM Did a few things and certainly finding his feet but still more is expected. 5
19 WCE His best game in black and white stripes. Two goals and put head over the ball when needed. 7
20 Rich Took some nice marks and found space for two goals. Getting better. 7
21 WB Excellent form in first quarter on wing. Starting to live up to expectations. 7
22 GCS Quiet night in big win, but defensive work good – five tackles. 5
23 Haw Injured hamstring in second term and day was done. 1

2015 Season

Played for : Brisbane

1 Coll Struggled to get into match, especially when the Lions were on the comeback. 4
2 NEAFL Responded well with 256 touches and a goal. -
3 Rich Got plenty of the ball but didn’t inflict enough damage. 6
4 WCE Subbed out in third term after failing to impress in midfield. 4
5 NEAFL Just fair after being dropped for second time this year. -
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 Port Made the most of his recall. Played as if he wanted to be at the club. 7
8 Ess Did not do much and had a lamentable clanger when kicking off from a behind. 2
9 StK Had almost half of his touches in first term when Lions on a roll. 5
10 Jaw.
11 Jaw.
12 Jaw.
13 Adel OK early. Failed to get a touch in last quarter when game was in the balance. 5
14 Frem Made some cute errors in wet conditions but will learn from experience. 4
15 Syd Five effective disposals in first half and 10 for the match. One inside-50. 3
16 Melb Sub. By time he got on game was over. Got a few touches late. 1
17 NM Started in the midfield and saw a lot of action early and them faded. 5
18 Finger.
19 Finger.
20 Finger.
21 Finger.
22 Finger.
23 Finger.

2014 Season

Played for : Brisbane

1 Haw Looked comfortable on debut. 17 possessions and used them well mostly. 5
2 Geel Played like a 150-gamer in first half. Tired late but solid effort – eight marks. 6
3 GCS Kicked a goal straight after being subbed in, and generally productive. 5
4 Port Looks a player, didn’t see a lot of the footy but all class. 6
5 Rich Polished when he had hands on the ball. 6
6 StK Continued to show why he was such a highly rated draftee. Polished. 7
7 Syd Started with eight disposals in first term. Even effort. 7
8 Ess Started brilliantly and was a driving force. 7
9 NM Accomplished young man kept going strongly. 7
11 Carl OK without starring. 5
12 WB Slow start but worked into the game and was clean with ball in hand. 6
13 GWS Frost didn’t let him get into the game at all. 3
14 NEAFL Bye. -
15 NM Nailed two crucial goals and pivotal in the Lions’ huge second quarter. 7
16 Rich Subbed out after just two kicks. Finding it tougher to back-up late in season. 2
17 WCE Got enough of the ball but seven of his 10 kicks were ineffective. 5
18 GCS Pumped ball inside 50 nine times, second only to Hanley. Rising Star 2014? 6
19 Melb Quiet afternoon but chipped in with a settling goal. 3
20 Adel Struggled to make an impact. 5
21 Coll Youngster played minor role from half-forward/wing. Doesn’t make mistakes. 6
22 Frem Started on the bench. Ended being one of the better contributors. 6
23 Geel Rounded out first year with a neat performance highlighted by four inside-50s. 6
