2017 Digest:   Pre-season form suggests the speedster has taken positive steps to build on last season’s breakout performance.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Haw Electric start helped get Bombers’ on their way. Finished with four goals and has developed into a fine small forward. 8
2 Bris Devastating second quarter. Had three goals from four first half kicks. Saw off three opponents to kick five for the match. 7
3 Carl No Razzle Dazzle today. Plowman kept him under wraps all day. Only shot at goal hit post in final term. 2
4 Adel Five inside-50’s and a goal from a lucky free kick in the first term. 4
5 Coll Four opportunist’s goals underlined his rapid development into one of the game’s most damaging small forwards. 7
6 Melb Kicked an early goal, but from there lacked usual spark inside attacking 50. 3
7 Frem Started well but only three touches in the second half. No goals for the day. 5
8 Geel Three goals from 18 disposals was superb. Speed hurt Cats when he got on his bike and ran with the pill. 8
9 WCE Kicked three goals although played with a sore hand. Put good pressure on Eagle backs. 6
10 Rich Pace caused Bombers some concerns early then McIntosh shut him out completely. One goal, three inside-50s. 4
11 GWS Drifted up the ground from deep in attack to have an impact. Ended with two goals. 6
12 Port Didn’t kick a goal – despite his team’s dominance. Had a few decent touches. 4
13 Bye.
14 Syd Let the Swans off the hook with 0.3 in first half and ended with 1.4. Lively, but wasteful. 6
15 Bris Only showed bursts. 3
16 Coll Got loose in second quarter to kick two goals and ended the day with five in what was a big day out. 8
17 StK Never really cut loose and was inaccurate. 3
18 NM Lurks around the packs like a shark at J-Bay. Give him space and he’ll make you pay. Super efficient. 4.1 6
19 WB Only the two goals and even spent time running off the back of the square. Just went. 5
20 Carl Injured hamstring midway through first term and was done for the day. 1
21 Hamstring.
22 Hamstring.
23 Hamstring.
EF Syd In after hamstring injury and couldn’t get away from Smith enough to be a factor for his team; One goal from seven kicks. 4

2016 Season

1 Rested.
2 Melb Couple of darting runs and hurt Demons at times with ball use and overlap run. 6
3 Port Should have scored an easy goal running through unattended in the third term. 5
4 Geel Brilliant performance highlighted by a goal, great run and pressure around the ball. 7
5 Coll Creative effort up forward – 25 touches and two well-deserved goals. 7
6 Carl Kicked a ripping goal in first term but very quiet after that. Well down on average disposals. 3
7 Syd Drifted in and out of the game as a small forward. 4
8 NM Two goals ad flitted in at times but generally quiet. Two inside-50s, three tackles. 4
9 StK Copped a heavy hit at one stage but soldiered on. Wasn’t a major influence. 3
10 Rich Two goals and set up another with pace. When he goes near ball something looks like happening. 6
11 Frem Had three shots from eight touches. Opportunistic. 5
12 Haw Busy type who benefits from ground time he wouldn’t otherwise have had. 6
13 GWS Huge effort with four goals but copped knock late in third term and didn’t touch it in final quarter. 7
15 WCE Didn’t see a lot of the ball, but neither did the forward line. 4
16 StK Looked dangerous in attack and continues to develop. 6
17 Rich Should have had four goals in first half but ended with three and was lively throughout. 7
18 Bris Struggled to get into the game until a few junk-time goals made stats look better than they were. 5
19 Adel Classy half forward could have had a better game with straighter kicking for goal. 5
20 Rested.
21 GCS Lively again in attack with three goals from only a handful of touches. 6
22 WB Thumping goal in last term. Quiet early but lifted a little in second hour. 4
23 Groin.
