2017 Digest:   Pies have blooded him well, and showing more vigour as confidence grows. A little unsociability can be an asset to a defence.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Still battling against better opposition. Another the coach can reasonably start to expect more from. 3
2 Rich On Lennon and lowered his colours. Still giving away rookie free kicks (including a late one that cost a crucial goal). 4
3 Syd Some key touches late but had his hands full defensively at stages throughout the night. 5
4 StK Five scoring involvements from half back, but still just a scrapper at this stage of his development. 4
5 Ess Turned in perhaps his best four-quarter game in black and white. At last starting to show benefit of coach’s patience. 6
6 Geel Not sighted in terms of offensive input. Didn’t matter as others took control of the game. 3
7 Carl Looking beefier by the week. Too preoccupied trying to throw his weight around, lacks maturity and concentration. 3
8 GWS Mix of careless errors (overrunning the ball and allowing a soft GWS entry), strong tackling and two flying goals. 6
9 Haw Apart from his usual footy ADD, kicked the ball at 81 per cent efficiency and made a superb smother in final term. 7
10 Bris Plugged away from half-back for 25 disposals, seven inside-50s and a goal in the final term. Strong effort. 7
11 Frem Tackled to hurt and his chase on Brady Grey set the tone. 6
12 Melb Half-back was dashing early when Pies were on top but had to defend grimly in second half. Kept battling. 7
13 Bye.
14 Port Running defender couldn’t get into the game at all and was troubled by Impey at times. 3
15 Haw Five effective touches in the first half and tally didn’t improve much after main break playing as a defender. 4
16 Ess Made three horror skill errors early and couldn’t got with Fantasia in second half. Bad day all round. 3
17 GCS Rebounded well from defence, and snuck forward to boot an outstanding goal in third quarter. 6
18 WCE Quiet day by the standards he has set for himself in recent weeks. Like Langdon, played multiple roles. 3
19 Adel Wanted it more than the opposition, put his head over the footy when it was his turn to do so. 6
20 NM Improving weekly. Had some sound defensive moments and had good penetration on his disposal. 6
21 Port Takes the game on with his penetrating kicking, when it works it looks spectacular, when it doesn’t a turnover usually results. 4
22 Geel Five effective disposals in opening half and only three more for the remainder of the game. Six tackles. 3
23 Melb Went to Oliver in midfield at first bounce. Big first term, but then was steady for the final three terms. 7

2016 Season

1 Syd In the team for his delivery, but four kicks at half back is well below par. 2
2 Played in VFL trial against Geelong.
3 StK Numbers were surprisingly high but looked heavy legged, mostly out of his depth and ineffective. 3
4 Hamstring.
5 Ess Did what was required from half back without starring. Never under pressure. 3
6 WCE A trier but not having a great deal of impact on proceedings. 4
7 Carl Made a few mistakes but used the ball OK on his left side. Just a battler at this stage. 4
8 Bris Had little impact across half back, but ball rarely came down. 4
9 Geel Played role at half back. Didn’t star but offered something when he had to. 4
10 WB Showed more vigour and got more involved, pitted against Macrae. Kept at it. 5
11 Port Turned it over a couple of times and was under the pump defending Port’s small forwards. 4
12 Melb Kicked a goal but that was about only highlight. One horror error cost a goal. 4
14 Frem Again displayed some promising signs in defence. Finally making progress. 6
15 Carl A typical hard-nosed display. Used the ball well and laid four tackles. 6
16 GWS Had task on Stevie J. and did it well. Playing with a little more zest since the bye. 6
17 Adel Did well to keep Betts to three goals. Playing with more energy. 5
18 NM Terrible stuff up on kick off prompted a fight. Playing with a lot more confidence. 6
19 WCE Had some up and down moments but stood up with long late goal to seal the win. 5
20 Rich Hardly sighted in terms of providing rebound from back half. 4
21 WB On Hunter and Dickson early. Drifted forward for a big goal. 4
22 GCS Took Grant at half back and OK but made a few errors by foot. 5
23 Haw Went to Rioli at times and had some trouble containing him. Kept trying. 5

17 WB Held his own down back and used ball well mostly. 5
18 Melb Matched up on Brayshaw and was clean with his ball use. 5
19 Carl Keeps improving and kicked a nice running goal in second term. 6
20 Senior emergency.
21 Rich Skills by foot need serious work. Had to be moved off Lloyd after conceding goals. 4
22 Geel Appeared to cop knock in second term that slowed him up. One fine goal. 5
23 Ess Tackled hard but didn’t find enough footy to do any damage offensively. 3
