2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 Geel Quiet night. Didn't get into the game at any stage to cause the Cats' any sort of concern. 5
2 Port Showed some class with his run from halfback and a goal in the third term. 5
3 WB His dash from defence was huge. Pushed forward to kick a goal too. 6
4 Melb Midfielder was enormous with 27 disposals, five inside-50s and ran hard to receive the ball in plenty of space. 7
5 NM Must improve his kicking if he’s going to be the guy sending it inside 50. Had 26 touches but turned it over. 6
6 WCE One chase showed the desperation Freo needed all night. 6
7 Ess Battled. Made some big errors. 3
8 Rich Quiet one. Didn’t have a clearance or an inside-50 for the day which suggests his impact was well down. 3
9 Carl Worked hard to collect 26 possessions. 6
10 Adel Fremantle’s best player with two goals and 30 possessions including seven rebound-50’s. 7
11 Coll Strong performer in defence. His creativity is important. 7
12 Bris Bagged a second quarter goal although he should have passed off though. Lucky though, it was his only highlight. 4
13 Bye.
14 Geel Ball winner used his pace and cleverness to wreak havoc on the Cats; 23 touches and nine inside-50s a great contribution. 8
15 StK Didn’t touch the ball in the first term. Had 16 possessions. 5
16 NM Broke the lines at stages off half back with his penetrating kicking. Steady. 6
17 WCE Ran with the ball whenever he could. His creativity is important. 6
18 Haw Had plenty of the ball. Tried to run. Always has a go. 6
19 GWS He really turned up the intensity levels in the second half. Solid outing with 22 disposals, 19 pressure acts and seven score involvements. 6
20 GCS His usual run wasn’t there. He’s at his best when he’s running with the ball. 5
21 Syd Got some cheap touches in the defensive half. Not as proficient as he can be. 3
22 Rich Had a lot of the ball but didn’t have the impact of a 21 disposal game. 5
23 Ess Played off half back and through midfield. A bit part player on the day. 5

2016 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 WB Just five touches but showed a bit of toe on occasions. Should be given another shot. 3
2 GCS Gave the team life but wasn’t involved enough to make the most of it. 4
3 WCE Does a lot right. Needs more game time and experience. 4
4 NM Workrate without the ball was impressive and gives another dimension. Going OK. 6
5 Carl Again showed that his pace and attack on the ball are a key element for the team. 6
6 Adel Provided great outside run and four inside-50’s. 6
7 GWS Energetic. His development is going nicely. 5
8 Haw Good attack on the ball and applied pressure with second and third efforts. 6
9 Rich Needs to win more of the ball to match his energetic style. 4
10 StK One of the few positives to emerge this year. Has real spark to his game. 6
11 Ess Had a career high 22 possessions which is a good sign. 6
12 Bris Breakout game with 22 possessions and four goals. 8
13 Port When he’s around the ball, things happen. Just needs more possessions. 4
14 Coll Struggled to win much of the ball. 3
16 Melb Stared on a wing. Reported for bump on Hunt and never got into the game. 3
17 Geel Neat goal in first term but only eight effective disposals not enough for midfield. 3
18 GCS Got a bit of the footy though did not have a big influence. 5
19 Syd Needs to do more when he gets the ball. 4
20 WCE It’s time for him to start winning more of the ball. 4
21 Adel In defence this week. Tried to give them drive. 5
22 GWS Growing by the week. Spent some time in defence and one Fremantle’s best. 7
23 WB Has now played forward, mid and back. Developing well. Had 24 touches. 6
