2017 Digest:   Mooted to move into midfield but can they afford to lose his calmness and courage at half back? A young star on the rise.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Port Buttered up in defence to be third across and showcased his sublime play reading. Another Corey Enright in the making. 7
2 WB Not as good as previous week but kept battling. Free kick against for deliberate rushed behind late in the game was critical. 5
3 Coll Star youngster does his work with the minimum of fuss. Has played better games but still offered something from the back half. 6
4 WCE Barely sighted in the first half with just four touches. Lifted after main break with some courageous efforts. 5
5 GWS On Steve Johnson early and was one of the better Swans. Leadership shows through already. 6
6 Carl Blues’ exploited his loose checking at times and were happy to tell him all about it. Battled hard but was quiet. 5
7 Bris Not really a factor early for much of the afternoon and late spoil on Berry will be looked at by MRP. 4
8 NM Always cool under pressure down back 6
9 StK Good duel with Membrey and won a lot of ball in general play at half back. 6
10 Haw Good in patches, but not at the level he showed last season. 5
11 Bye.
12 WB Started game superbly then faded like your grandma’s couch in the front room. Had nine disposals after quarter time. 4
13 Rich Struggled at times down back but did lift tempo in second half. Hit target with 17 of his 19 possessions. 6
14 Ess Played his part at half back and won some important duels with the game in the balance. 7
15 Melb Knocked out early by Bugg punch and played no further part. 0
16 GCS 22 possessions a week after having his lights dimmed by Bugg, confidence booster. 7
17 GWS Looked shaky early with a couple of shanked kicks, but did his role. 5
18 StK Switched onto Jack Steven when he went forward in third term. Even game across four quarters. 6
19 Haw 21 disposals down back, did his part. 6
20 Geel Young half-back did what he had to without setting the world on fire. Four tackles and intercepted at times. 5
21 Frem Found more of the ball as the game wore on. Defended like a 10-year veteran as always. 6
22 Adel More of lock down role in defence than his usual rebounding displays. 5
23 Carl Displayed his typical amount of courage in defence, and added some offensive weaponry with 20 touches. 7
EF Ess Read the flight of the pill well and took some nice intercept mark. Steady all night down back. 7
SF Geel Tried hard but trying is good in leagues that offer halftime organs ands certificates. OK. 6

2016 Season

1 Coll Had 18 touches on debut and was composed when under pressure. Steady start. 5
2 Carl Started slowly but worked into the game after the main break. 19 touches. 6
3 GWS Serviceable in the back half. Took two impressive contested marks. 4
4 Adel As courageous as they come, showed real poise and quality. 7
5 WCE Again the kid looked calm and assured in defence. 5
6 Bris Used at both ends and faded in last term with only one touch in last quarter. 5
7 Ess Fulfilled his role in the back half despite making a few errors. 4
8 Rich OK across half back without having a big influence on proceedings. 5
9 Haw In defence on Puopolo initially then spent time on Gunston which was a big wrap. 5
10 NM Played part at half back and didn’t look overawed. Club will be happy with progress. 6
11 Managed.
12 GWS Serviceable in back half and willing to work hard in close. Half his touches were contested. 5
13 Melb OK without starring at half-back. Didn’t do a great deal wrong. 5
15 WB A quality young defender shifted off Stringer when the Bulldog fired. 5
16 Geel Brilliant from half back. Plays more like a 114-gamer than a 14-gamer. 8
17 Haw Took Breust/Puopolo and was good in the role. Won his share of one-on-ones. 6
18 Carl Opposed mainly to Armfield and kept him honest. Also found a lot of ball in defensive half. 7
19 Frem Composed off half-back. Does so much right. 6
20 Port Took Wingard for long periods in a great educational role and did well. 6
21 StK Good game over four quarters in defence. 5
22 NM Reads the play so well in backline. Took 10 marks and had a game-high 10 rebound-50s. 8
23 Calf.
QF GWS Huge task on Johnson who had four shots for goal in first half. Injured hamstring late in second term. 2
SF Hamstring.
PF Hamstring.
GF WB Youngster returned from injury with a reasonable effort but few damaging disposals. 4
