2017 Digest:   Was a game breaker in attack against Port and had a quiet half the following week, but as part of tall attacking trio, is a vital cog.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Looked good in early stages in attack and pressured opposition, but missed a couple of gettable shots. 5
2 WCE His marking was a feature. Took nine grabs including two which were contested. 7
3 Bris Another forward who couldn’t find the big sticks despite always looking dangerous in the air. Ended with 1.3. 5
4 Coll Strong presence up forward – eight marks for two goals a telling contribution. 5
5 Geel Two goals but for long periods he was not in the game. Six kicks and five marks not a big haul. 4
6 Haw Booted first goal and was lively throughout forward of centre. Three goals and handed a few off. Gave Stratton fits. 7
7 GWS One goal and two behinds from 16 touches. Didn’t star but was best of three tall Saints forwards. 5
8 Carl Took some vital contested marks in the last term but scored just the one major, after destroying the Blues in 2016. 5
9 Syd He and Riewoldt were only two Saint forwards who looked like taking a mark. Chances limited. 5
10 WB Well contained by the tight-checking Morris. 3
11 Bye.
12 Adel Unsighted all game, kudos to Kyle Hartigan for a job well done. 3
13 NM Improved performance overall after looking close to demotion and two goals will keep his place. 4
14 GCS Opened well with two goals and marked strongly all day. 5
15 Frem Kicked two goals and competed well. Marking at times was extremely important. 6
16 Rich Bagged five straight goals in a big effort, but clash with Grimes was a concern. 8
17 Suspended.
18 Suspended.
19 Port St Kilda’s most dangerous forward with three goals in low scoring game thanks to strong marking. 6
20 WCE Strong marking brought two goals, but was generally kept under tight rein by McKenzie. 4
21 Melb Starved for opportunities early on, but was important in the St Kilda revival. Ended with two goals. 5
22 NM One grab marking came to the fore especially late in the day and finished with handy three goals. 6
23 Rich Couldn’t get into the game at all up forward until second half. Two goals from seven kicks. 5

2 Played in VFL trial against Williamstown.
3 Senior emergency.
4 Senior emergency.
5 VFL Kicked two goals and was dangerous in the front half with five marks. -
6 Melb Best game in the Saints colours with five goals. Back to back goals set course in third. 7
7 NM Made the most of his chances and three goals showed growing confidence. 5
8 WCE Ball hardly came near him and while he tried very hard, couldn’t get into it. 2
9 Ess Gaining confidence from stringing games together. Three goals was good reward. 6
10 Frem In middle two quarters was the main tall forward. Ran hard and bagged three goals. 7
11 Adel Tried to present for the ball and showed admirable endeavour in barren attack. 5
12 Carl Marked confidently, covered ground and bagged five. Saints best forward so far. 8
14 Geel Taylor made him earn everything. Missed easy shot late which was unusual. 4
15 GCS Kept pushing up to present a target but wasn’t immune from poor disposal theme. 5
16 Ess Hard working, strong marking and accurate kicking made him Saints’ best forward. 7
17 Melb Again St Kilda’s target forward and a four-goal return was reward for high work-rate. 7
18 WB Got Saints going with instant goal and kept presenting. 5
19 NM Racked up mileage against close-checking Firrito. Not immune from kicking woes. 4
20 Carl Another bag of five goals was just reward for strong work-rate and quality leads. 8
21 Syd On Rampe, couldn’t break away as he has in recent weeks. 3
22 Rich Kept presenting and contesting in attack. 5
23 Bris Only a couple of goals but covered lots of ground to create a target. 4

2015 Season

1 GWS Some good hit-up leads and with two goals looks worth persevering. 4
2 GCS Kicking for goal let him down but plenty to like about his endeavour. 4

4 Carl On Tuohy and rarely sighted. 2
5 Ess Covered ground in attack but not a big day. 3

9 VFL Quiet afternoon but presented well at half forward. -
10 VFL Dangerous in attack with 2.3 from 14 possessions. -
11 Melb Contested hard but needs to win more of the ball in attack. 4

14 Ess Started well and covered ground to be a good target. 6
15 GWS Quiet day in attack and not a factor. 2
16 Senior emergency.
17 VFL Only seven touches, but marked well and kicked three goals. -
