2017 Digest:   Didn’t finish the 2016 season as he’d wish, but has dropped weight and has been imposing in JLT Series. Ready to explode.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 StK Saints could not contain him as a marking forward who showed willingness to work up field. 8
2 Carl Didn’t kick a goal and lost his cool a few times, but some of his work at ground level in the final term was very important. 5
3 Suspended.
4 Suspended.
5 Rich Ended with three goals – two from frees, but workrate up and down the ground was very good. Supply wasn’t great at times. 6
6 Personal leave.
7 Haw Couldn’t get near it up forward then came to life late in third term to help side arrest the momentum. Three goals. 6

16 Carl First game back produced one goal from six kicks. Will get better with more game time. 3
17 Adel Hands were a bit off and missed a sitter, but worked hard and was a bit stiff at times with a few decisions. 5
18 Port Best game since return. Booted three goals in the first half, then continued to hit up at half forward. 7
19 NM Not easy opposed to Tarrant in such windy conditions. Injured arm/shoulder in third term and was done. 2
20 Collarbone.
21 Shoulder.
22 Bris Back from a broken collarbone and was enormous with six goals. The matchwinner in the end. 8
23 Coll Injured hamstring in the second term and didn’t return. Wretched year. 1

2016 Season

1 GWS Towelled up by Davis early then went into middle to get going. Huge final term with three goals. 6
2 Ess Woeful. Didn’t have a shot for goal until final term. Needs to snap out of form funk. 2
3 NM Three first-half goals and imposed himself after starting in the centre square. Needed to kick late shot. 7
4 Coll Had Brown for company but escaped enough to jag two goals. Worked into defence at times to help steady team. 6
5 Rich Held goalless by Rance and had to work up the ground to get a kick. Side still kicked 20 goals. 4
6 StK Marking was too strong for Fisher and others. Five goals by half time and seven all-up. 9
7 GCS Considering the volume of footy was surprisingly well held to just the one goal. 4
8 WB Beaten in first half (apart from one hanger) and only goal came late. Set shots a disaster. 4
9 Bris Led to the ball early by Merrett by got the better of the match-up with five goals. 8
10 Port Could have kicked a bagful opposed to Hombsch but left kicking boots in Melbourne. Tried hard. 7
11 Haw Dropped two early marks and led to the ball too often early but created contests. 5
12 Coll Three goals, two in second term, helped side put a gap on the Pies. Nine marks. 7
13 Syd Grundy wore him tight and only able to hit scoreboard deep in final term. 4
15 Adel Kicked three goals and made his presence felt in marking contests and on the deck. Solid. 7
16 Frem Worked hard up ground to exhaust Dawson. Should have kicked six but missed a few easy ones. 8
17 StK Kicked one and missed a few. Frustrated by constantly being held and reported for stray elbow. 4
18 WCE Pushed up the field to win his possessions. Only one shot for goal. 5
19 GCS Spent a lot of time up at half back and held goalless for second straight week. Hurt knee and hobbled. 4
20 Knee.
21 Port Missed two set shots in two minutes in the third term, needs to tidy up his run in. 2
22 Carl Took 14 marks – mostly up the ground, but inaccuracy in final term cruelled any momentum. 5
23 Geel Woeful effort highlighted by embarrassing body language. Three marks, one goal. 1

2015 Season

1 GCS On debut had the presence of a 100 gamer. Huge mark late iced the cake. 6
2 GWS Two first half goals and had a real presence in attack. Supply then evaporated. 5
3 Adel Strong hands despite the wet conditions, looks a player. 6
4 Rich Made Rance look second rate at times. Two goals—already a star. 7
5 Frem Just one goal in good battle with McPharlin but worked hard. Will have learned a bit. 5
6 Syd Despite poor supply continued to work hard to find the footy. 6
7 Soreness.
8 WB Took nine marks, kicked three goals and provided a huge presence. 8
9 Port Kept up his two goal average and showed a strong workrate all afternoon. 6
10 Coll Couldn’t get away from Frost. Only goal came in first term then a non-factor. 3
11 StK Stood out like a beacon in a team that lacked skill. Five quality goals. 8
12 Hamstring.
13 Hamstring.
14 WCE Just the one goal but worked well up the ground to find the footy. 6
15 Ess Tough day at the office. Tried hard for six marks. 5
16 Bris In the end was the difference between the teams. Workrate immense. 8
17 StK On Fisher. Always looked a threat but delivery to him was sub-standard. 4
18 Coll The best key forward on the ground and had a good battle with Brown. 7
19 NM Hammered Thompson to end with four goals. Star is on the rise. 8
20 WB Starved for opportunities in opening half but fought on to end with three goals. 6
21 Carl Goalless and either played front behind or given horror delivery. 3
22 Frem Got frustrated by Dawson. Still kicked two goals. 5
23 GWS Put in one last reminder for Rising Star judges with three goals despite being wayward. 7
