2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Didn't cover enough ground as an on baller and wasn’t incisive with his use of the ball. 4
2 WCE Worked hard without having a major impact with his disposals. 5
3 Bris Industrious in midfield and hit the scoreboard with 1.1, but doesn’t hurt the opposition often enough with possessions. 6
4 Coll Started in middle appearing to take up a defensive role (seven tackles and just 11 possessions). 4
5 Geel What he did was good but has to touch the ball more than 12 times to hurt the opposition; 12 touches, one goal. 4
6 VFL Back to some better form with 22 possessions, nine inside-50s and seven tackles. -
7 VFL Worked hard enough with 27 touches, eight clearances and nine tackles. -
8 Carl Played his part in the midfield with 28 touches and found some decent form after a stint in the VFL. 7
9 Syd Predominantly disposed of the ball by hand and wasn’t a big factor. 4
10 VFL Battled the game out in a well-beaten midfield. 27 possessions, eight clearances. -
11 VFL One of the Zebs best. Had 30 touches, seven clearances and seven tackles in the loss. -
12 VFL Kicked two goals to go with his 24 touches. Good without being great. -
13 NM In and out of side. Did a few things but needs to do more to hold spot. 4
14 GCS Stats indicated bigger impact on the game than he actually had. 4
15 Frem Laid seven tackles but managed only 11 possessions and missed some chances. 3
16 VFL Easily Sandy's best with 38 touches, seven clearances and two goals. -
17 VFL Stood out the most with his clean ball use. Will be on the fringe of senior team after 28 touches at 82 per cent. -
18 Syd A 10 possession first quarter signalled a strong return. Ended with 29 touches and used ball better than in recent outings. 6
19 Port Backed up last week’s game with another excellent display on the ball. Could be a career turning point. 7
20 WCE A solid game after two strong weeks. 6
21 Melb Two goals from midfield was a good return, but was left flat-footed early on. Fought back. 6
22 NM Continued a good run of form in recent weeks and was strong across four quarters. 7
23 Rich Missed two sitters in first quarter. Battled hard but his kicking is not great for a midfielder; 30 disposals. 6

2016 Season

1 Port Suffered a heavy knock after a bruising tackle on Hartlett and had limited impact. 4
2 WB One of many inside midfielders who struggled to get their hands on the ball. 4
3 Coll Tackled brilliantly (seven) and had four clearances and three inside-50s to keep midfield wheels turning. 7
4 Hamstring.
5 GWS Started with all guns blazing but then diminished influence. 5
6 Melb Good ball-winner but tapered at the end. 6
7 NM Whole-hearted effort in midfield but a few late kicks missed the target. 6
8 WCE Not incisive enough in midfield battle. 3
9 Ess Won ball well and had high handball to kick ratio. 6
10 Frem Steady input from midfield although dipped in second and third quarters. 5
11 Adel Started well but usage below par. Early missed shots didn’t help. 4
12 Carl Low-key but kept grinding away in middle. 5
14 Geel Solid and honest game in the midfield. 5
15 GCS Chugged along but didn’t do any damage. 4
16 Ess Toiled away in packs and the bulk of his disposals were handballs. 5
17 Melb Tackling work and determination in packs made him a handy contributor. 5
18 WB Impressive midfield performance in terms of pressure and creativity. 7
19 NM Like several teammates couldn’t make an impact in midfield. 3
20 Carl Solid display until an ugly shoulder dislocation forced him off. 4
21 Shoulder.
22 Shoulder.
23 Shoulder.

2015 Season

1 GWS Looked to be pitted against Treloar and was just OK. 4
2 GCS Relished midfield workload and a constant generator. 7
3 Coll Solid and consistent effort in midfield. 6
5 Ess Solid game and showed great work-rate. Lack of right foot power a worry. 6
6 WB Blue-collar worker in midfield. Not a big player but did his bit. 5
7 Adel Powerful midfielder struggled to impact the game. 3
8 WCE Tagging role on Priddis which he found hard. Lacks zips and may need rest. 3
9 Bris Big second quarter and a key midfield driver. Off with head knock briefly. 7
10 Rested.
11 Melb In and out of the game, but did a few nice things. 4
13 WB Matched on Wallis most of the night. 5
14 Ess Sub came on last term and handy with a goal thrown in. 2
15 GWS Shiel got away early. Not an incisive player. 4
16 Rich Looked sharp and won the ball inside packs. Tackled well. 7
17 Melb Had the better of duel with Jones in first half. 6
18 Port Had job of tracking Gray and found him hard to contain. 5
19 Soreness.
20 Calf.

22 Syd Sub came on in third quarter and won some touches. 3
23 WCE Worked hard inside and out packs. 5

1 Melb Did the lot with tackles and hard ball gets. Looked like he had been there forever. 7
2 GWS Not as prominent as first game but still a meaningful contributor. 5
3 WCE Excellent work in close and went head to head with Priddis. They played wide. 7
4 Adel OK but not as influential as in earlier rounds. 5
5 Ess Busy and creative early. A solid contributor. 5
