2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Carl Kicked two goals in first quarter and might have kicked four if not for inaccuracy. Ended with 2.4. 7
2 Coll Pressure forward bobbed up occasionally but didn’t trouble the scoreboard attendant. 3
3 WCE Played a good game trying to nullify Shannon Hurn, and it worked. Kept him very quiet! 6
4 Bris Talented forward proving to be the perfect off-sider to Rioli. Kicked four which almost doubled his nine-game career tally. 7
5 Melb Found some space in attack early on and kicked a goal, but from there didn’t have a big impact. 4
6 Adel A miserly seven disposals, the speed and goal sense of previous weeks were not on display. 2
7 WB Usage wasn’t effective and tried to pull off the spectacular a couple of times. 4
8 Frem Threatened on occasions but in the end impact wasn’t commensurate with effort. One goal from eight kicks. 4
9 GWS Two first term goals helped Tigers to a fast start. Missed one to start final term, but did his bit. 6
10 Ess Hardly sighted all night. Was it a forerunner for a spell back in VFL or does coach stick with him? 2
11 NM Bobbed up for one goal from seven kicks. Flitted in and out of the game but gained another experience at senior level. 4
12 Bye.
13 Syd Booted one, but also missed a few other shots that would have given the Tigers breathing space, 4
14 Carl Two first-term goals, but then missed a few other chances to boost his tally. 5
15 Port Had his moments down the wing and across half forward, needs to be more composed with ball in hand. 4
16 StK Kicked two goals and missed an easy one. Not much else. 3
17 Bris Needs to understand he is an ordinary set shot and look to pass the ball off at times. Was lively though and ended with two. 5
18 GWS Slippery half forward sealed the win with a goal in final term. Apart from that was only a bit player. 4
19 GCS Helped himself to a haul of three goals, though could have booted five with better conversion. 6
20 Haw Faster than a striped lizard on outback asphalt. Only the five kicks for the day. 3
21 Geel Putrid afternoon. Part of a supposed dangerous forward line that failed to fire a shot. 6 tackles saved a lashing. 2
22 Frem Quiet. One of the few players to not have a big game. 3
23 StK Quiet day up forward with four total disposals and no goals. Laid four tackles. 2
QF Geel Failed to have a kick in first half and ended with three and one late goal. Keep his place? 3
PF GWS Lively start in attacking 50 but at times his kicking was rushed. Won plenty of the ball. 6
GF Adel One effective disposal in first half and three for the game for one goal. Like he’s done all year he played a role. 4
