2017 Digest:   Looking to carry through strong finish to 2016, but competition is tighter. Talented but needs to go for first option more often.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 -
2 WCE Kicked a goal and showed dash at times. A steady effort. 5
3 Bris Had some good moments and marked the ball well in the air, but kicking at times was hot and cold. 5
4 Coll Competitive type, 21 touches and a goal a healthy contribution. 6
5 Geel Quiet start then worked into the game without setting world on fire. One goal and hit target with every one of his 18 disposals. 5
6 Haw Calf issue in first half but wasn’t hampered much. Linked well at times though midfield and played his role. 6
7 GWS Wingman showed some dash at times in an even effort without starring. Kicked two goals to start final term to kick-start team. 7
8 Carl Had it 21 times but only had the seven kicks and didn’t provide as much run and carry as last week. 6
9 Syd Big second quarter and had a good day overall. 6
10 WB Ran hard and wasn’t the worst but not as incisive as other weeks. 5
11 Bye.
12 Adel Did some nice work across halfback and pushed forward on occasions but missed his two shots on goal. 5
13 NM Okay, but wasn't able to cut through often enough. 5
14 GCS Off the boil in recent weeks and was quiet. Missed a gettable goal. 2
15 Senior emergency.
16 VFL Had 23 touches and kicked a goal in Sandy's loss to the Bulldogs. -
17 VFL Underwhelming in the forward line early but played better when moved into the midfield. Found it 26 times. -
18 Syd Was fairly handy in his return to the side and bounced back after being crunched by Mills. 5
19 Port A mixed bag, some good points and a couple of inexplicables. 5
20 WCE His team's highest disposal winner with 30 but that was counterbalanced by fumbles and use of wrong options. 6
21 Melb Burst through a few tackles to give the Saints some life, but one of many to be inefficient by foot. 4
22 NM Had another 30 possession game which is a good indicator of his ongoing progress. Good day. 7
23 Rich Possession-wise was not the worst but didn’t have a huge impact on the flow of the game; 18 disposals. 5

2016 Season

1 Port Impressive performance in just his 11th game of senior footy. 6
2 Played in VFL trial against Williamstown.
3 VFL Good ball winner again with 33 touches and a goal. Doing all he can to push back in. -
4 Haw Had a few good bursts but didn’t win as much ball as he has at VFL level. 5
5 Senior emergency.
6 Melb Best game he has played for Saints. Moved well and won plenty of ball. 8
7 NM Did a few nice things but less influence than the previous week. 4
8 WCE Couldn’t get into it and seemed overawed in his home state. 2
9 VFL Massive outing again. Far too good for VFL level, just needs consistency. -
10 VFL Bye. -
11 VFL Good performer again with 19 touches and two goals in thrilling win. -
12 Carl Put himself in the right positions to win the ball, but had a couple of terrible kicks. 5
14 Geel Won plenty of disposals but often rushed his kicks. A lot of good to work with. 6
15 GCS Got hold of the ball a fair bit, but indecisive when sizing up options. 4
16 Ess Didn’t make an impression. Occasionally his concentration seems to wander. 3
17 Melb Looks on the cusp of a breakthrough at times. More minutes in defence this game. 4
18 WB Difficult to get a line on him. Shows glimpses of real potential but drifts in focus. 4
19 NM Coach said this was one of best games for club. Still some lapses but improving. 6
20 Carl Big first term and had a good game. 6
21 Syd Continues to make plenty of progress as a winger. 7
22 Rich Continued to show strong ball-winning capacity on the wing. 6
23 Bris Good kick winner in first half and completed a good second half of the year. 6
