2017 Digest:   The squad’s best runner who also has a nice left boot and gets himself involved in the play. Reckon he’s a Round 1 starter.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Very good early and earned 26 touches in a high-disposal game. Making a spot his own. 5
2 Rich Picked up Edwards, who gave him grief early, but fought well and often in the chain running it out of defence. 5
3 Syd Ball magnet early with 19 first-half touches, and ended with 27. Always available to provide a link in midfield. 8
4 Ill.
5 Ess Playing the wingman’s link role and flashed in and out. Looks like a 100-gamer for the Pies. 4
6 Geel Good early then drifted out of the contest to a degree. Highlight was a goal and five inside-50s to help keep wheels turning. 5
7 Carl Came off the bench for 12 disposals and a few tackles but wrong-footed too often. 3
8 GWS Ran a wing and picked up possessions although often under pressure 5
9 Haw Off the interchange into the second midfield rotation. No influence but rose to the occasion in final term. 4
10 Bris Struggled to find the footy early but then got going off a wing. Got a good ability to link up when Pies rolling forward. 6
11 Frem Kicked one goal from 22 disposals. Busy. 6
12 Melb One goal and four inside-50s but certainly didn’t have a big impact from a total of 18 disposals. Did use ball with care when he got it. 5
13 Bye.
14 Port Busy effort again around the ball but rarely able to hurt the Power forward of centre. Three clearances and six tackles. 5
15 Haw Ran hard and got involved but panicked at times and lacked composure. Needs to work on taking first option. 4
16 Ill.
17 VFL Played between the flanks and had 17 touches at just 58.8 per cent. Floated in and out of the game. -
18 VFL Collingwood's best with a massive 40 disposal day. Played half forward and pushed into the midfield. -
19 Adel Hardly sighted except for three tackles and one inside-50. 3
20 NM Started slowly but really stepped it up as the game went on. 6
21 Port Pushed forward for a goal in the second term and won his fair share of footy. 6
22 Geel Wingman wins a lot of the ball in space but doesn’t always get full tote odds from them. Gained team-high 524 metres. 6
23 Melb Good contributor on the outside and kicked a ripper set shot from the boundary. Ended with two majors. 6

2016 Season

1 Played in VFL trial against Coburg.
