2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Not a huge impact in the match, though he made his possessions count. 4
2 Senior emergency.
3 NEAFL Superb with his ball-winning in midfield to end with 39 disposals and six inside-50s. -
4 NEAFL Solid outing working up off half forward. Had 28 touches and kicked a goal. -
5 WB Used forward and back. Two goals and five tackles. Small contribution and something to work with. 4
6 Port Opposed to Polec and did a reasonable job, whilst still getting his share of the footy. 7
7 Syd Won some contested ball off a wing and booted a third-term goal. Looking more comfortable at senior level. 5
8 Haw Found himself involved in some nice passages of play but relatively quiet day with 13 disposals. 4
9 Adel Almost half of his 16 disposals were ineffective. 4
10 Coll Looked a little fumbly at times and made mistakes with ball in hand; 11 disposals and little impact. 3
11 Bye.
12 NEAFL Just the 13 touches in midfield and at half forward. Laid five tackles though. -
13 NEAFL Excellent with 26 touches, six tackles and two goals. Ball use was very good. -
14 NEAFL Big ball winner in midfield and at half forward. 33 possessions, five clearances. -
15 NEAFL Best afield in a big win. 34 touches, seven clearances and four goals. Impressive. -
16 NEAFL Big effort. 28 possessions, seven inside 50s and seven clearances. -
17 Rich Combative at half forward and in midfield. Kicked a couple of goals when he found space. 6
18 Carl Did a few useful things including two goal assists. 4
19 WCE Good workrate and won the hard ball. Kicked a goal too. 7
20 NEAFL Good without being a star on the day. 18 disposals and a goal. -
21 NEAFL One of the Lions best in tight loss. 32 possessions and gave his all. -
22 NEAFL Played his part in midfield with 26 touches and five clearances. -
23 NEAFL Bye. -

2016 Season

1 Played in NEAFL trial against Gold Coast.
2 NEAFL Had the ball on a string in midfield with 39 possessions. Brave. -
3 NEAFL Backed up last week’s huge effort with another 30 possessions. Going well. -
4 NEAFL Again the Lions’ best in midfield. One of the few to show any resistance. -
5 NEAFL Not as big of an outing in terms of possessions, but kicked three handy goals. -
6 Syd Celebrated first game with a goal. Seemed to do enough to get a second game. 5
7 Port Had four attempts at goal and missed them all. 5
8 Coll Just four disposals until half time. Lifted late in game but too little, too late. 5
9 Melb One goal and missed a couple of other chances playing as a mid-sized forward. 3
10 Haw Got more involved as the game wore on and used the ball cleanly by hand. 3
11 Carl Not a lot but laid five tackles and showed class on a couple of occasions. 5
12 Frem Struggled to get involved with only one kick. 1
13 WCE Settled in attack but out of his depth. Had just two kicks. 4
14 Rich Struggled to get into the game and looked off the pace on transition. 2
16 NEAFL Consistent performer with 24 touches, three clearances in midfield. -
17 GWS Came in as a late inclusion but hard to say if he did enough to avoid being omitted. 5
18 Ess Quiet outing and looked a bit off the pace compared with teammates. 3
19 Port Involved a couple of good passages of play and had three scoring assists so far from the worse. 5
20 Adel OK across half back with three rebound-50s and five tackles. 6
21 Carl Rookie still on a learning curve and did a couple of use things. 4
22 Geel Could not get into the game at all playing across half forward. Four kicks. 2
23 StK Showed he has something to work on and coach impressed with year. 4
