2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 -
2 NEAFL Took 13 marks and rebounded the ball expertly from defence. -
3 Senior emergency.
4 NEAFL Took 17 marks to go with his 31 possessions. One of the Lions best in the win. -
5 WB Not his day down back. Made mistakes and managed just four effective touches in a disappointing display. 1
6 NEAFL Bye. -
7 NEAFL Found a bit of the ball, but wasn’t as influential as he can be at this level. -
8 NEAFL Worked into the game after a sluggish start to play a strong role. -
9 NEAFL Worked hard down back to continually repel the Giants attacking thrusts. -

16 NEAFL Kicked two goals and did some handy things, but wasn’t a star on the day. -
17 NEAFL Bye. -
18 NEAFL Fantastic performance up forward. Took 14 marks and booted three goals. Nice step forward for him. -
19 NEAFL Was ok but not stellar. Just 11 touches and feels like a player that is too good for NEAFL but not good enough for AFL. -
20 NEAFL Mopped up well enough in the back half. Played his part. -
21 NEAFL Injured early on and played little part thereafter. -
22 NEAFL Not his best outing, but handy in patches. -

4 GCS Big third quarter with 11 touches. Stood up when it counted. 7

6 Syd Just the disposals yet did OK shadowing Papley and later Heeney. 4
7 Ill.
8 Ill.
9 NEAFL In and out of the game but did some good things. Plenty to work with. -
10 Best afield in huge win with 17 touches, 12 marks and five goals.
11 NEAFL Drove the ball forward well, but many were misguided or cut off. -
12 NEAFL Didn’t impact game as he did last week, but slogged away for 19 possessions. -
13 NEAFL Showed a willingness to compete. Clunked two impressive contested marks. -

15 NEAFL Bye. -
