2017 Digest:   A hidden gem last year coming off the rookie list but now on the long-term injury list with a knee. Unavailable for a month.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Knee.
2 Knee.
3 Knee.
4 WCE Back from injury and was lively early but then totally disappeared from the game – ala Lewis Jetta in Grand Finals. 2
5 GWS Feisty little Swan had a running battle with H.Shaw. A good start but then didn’t have impact. 3
6 Carl Two goals from limited chances playing across half forward. Ended day with a total of 16 touches and five tackles. 6
7 Bris Brought energy and aggression in forward half. Drifted up into defence at times. Steady. 6
8 NM Stats weren’t big, but when he got the ball his actions were decisive. 6
9 StK Worked hard around the forward line and also generated seven inside 50s . 6
10 Haw Really threatened at times in the front half without making the Hawks pay. 5
11 Bye.
12 WB Slippery mid-sized forward fluttered about socialite at a Hollywood party style; 21 disposals, two goals, eight tackles. 7
13 Rich Really important game. Chimed in with one goal in final term and was busy all over the ground. Plays with a real zest. 7
14 Ess 12 touches and a goal, but won’t have a bigger play than the smother on Goddard’s kick-out to keep ball inside 50. 5
15 Melb Gave away a silly free kick early on, but then worked very well throughout the night. 25 possessions. 7
16 GCS Played a great second fiddle to Rohan with two goals of his own. 7
17 GWS Great smother on Adam Tomlinson led to an opportunist soccer goal in the first quarter. Only 10 touches, but eight tackles and two goals. 6
18 StK Flashed in at times using his pace. 4
19 Haw A game high 3 goals, almost got them over the line. 7
20 Geel Dangerous forward looked to hurt Cats each time he went near the ball. Kicked 3.2 from eight kicks. 7
21 Frem Quiet in the first half but jagged a couple of third quarter goals. Worked hard. 5
22 Adel Kicked the Swans winner with only minutes remaining in the match. Other than that well held by Luke Brown. 5
23 Knee.
EF Ess Quiet first half (six disposals) then got going to kick a goal from 16 possessions. 6
SF Geel More chance of finding an interesting hairdresser called Sharon then seeing him near the ball. Had a howler. One goal. 3

2016 Season

1 Coll Very lively display in front half on debut with three goals. Super debut from the youngster. 7
2 Carl Another live-wire performance by the rookie. Kicked two and set up a couple. 7
3 GWS Gave it his all in the forward line and kicked a well-deserved goal in the final quarter. 4
4 Adel Sprayed two gettable chances with teammates in better positions. 2
5 WCE Brilliant beginning and always pushing up at bottom of packs in forward line. 7
6 Bris Improved as the game wore on but still possibly short of what he is capable of. 5
7 Ess Defensive forward pressure was brilliant with seven tackles and was rewarded with two goals. 5
8 Rich Quiet night for the youngster other than a final term goal. 3
9 Shin.
10 Shin.
11 Shin.
12 Shin.
13 NEAFL Kicked a goal on return from shin injury but had minutes monitored. -
14 NEAFL Bye. -
15 NEAFL Did what he had to do, booting two majors and finding a bit of the footy. -
16 Geel Five kicks but made them count to produce two vital goals. 5
17 Haw Wasteful first half then kicked goals in third and fourth terms. Last was a ripper. 5
18 Carl Quiet afternoon. Struggled to assert his dominance on the game. 3
19 Frem Quiet. The team had 457 disposals and he had seven. 2
20 Port Kicked a goal and missed a few other chances. Handy without starring. 5
21 StK Slow start but had a strong second half to finish with three goals. 6
22 NM Most of his good work was in opening quarter, including a brilliant goal from the boundary. 3
23 Rich Honest performance in attacking half. Effort was definitely there. 4
QF GWS Kicked first two goals of contest. Slight knee issue, then drifted in and out of the game. 5
SF Adel Early goal opposed to Brown and important one before three-quarter time. Finished with four. 7
PF Geel Nice goal early and buzzed around to finish with three. 6
GF WB Worked up the ground to get his hand to ball. Failed to hit the scoreboard. 4
