2017 Digest:   Attacking ball winner has been one of the stars of the pre-season. Looks ready for more midfield time.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Bris Quiet early, like plenty of his team mates, but exploded in second half with two goals. 7
2 GWS Got a bit of the ball with 19 touches, but laid just two tackles and again struggled to apply required pressure. 4
3 Haw Booted two telling goals when the pressure was on early, and gathered 29 possessions. 9
4 Carl Again no problems with finding the ball, but also tackled well. Solid night’s work. 7
5 Adel Got his usual quota of the footy and booted a couple of goals. 7
6 NM As usual tried to take on the game by running and bouncing wherever he could. Crunched in dying moments. 4
7 Geel Racked up stats off half back with aplomb and was a constant source of drive for his team; 32 disposals, one goal. 8
8 Port Won a truckload of the ball and tackling pressure very good. Can walk away satisfied with his two-way efforts. 8
9   Bye.  
10 Melb In everything in first half and helped Suns build big lead, then influence waned. 6
11 WCE Drifted in and out of the contest. Booted a goal and set a couple up. 6
12 Haw Struggled early but worked into the game to end with 23 disposals and five inside-50s. Steady without starring. 6
13 Carl Had a couple of score involvements though possessions down on his season average. 4
14   Hamstring.  
15   Hamstring.  
16   Hamstring.  
17 Coll Lacked his usual spark on return from injury. Looked for others to bring him into the game. 4
18 WB Unsighted early on, then worked into the game off a wing to be an okay performer. 6
19 Rich Really took on the midfield general role in Ablett's absence, amassing 40 possessions. Excellent four quarter effort. 9
20 Frem Injured his hamstring during the second term and didn’t return. Had 14 touches. 4
21 Bris Busy all night in midfield although his opposite number Rockliff was as, if not more, effective. 6
22 Ess Tried hard all night and led the way in the midfield, gathering 31 possessions and six inside 50's. 8
23 Port Won some footy around the stoppages but just blazed away to no one in particular. 4

2016 Season

1 Ess Carried on 2015 form, amassing possessions at will and hitting the scoreboard. 9
2 Frem Influential all night. Won the ball and carried it too. Had 32 disposals. 8
3 Carl Continued stellar season with another swag of possessions. 9
4 Bris A consistent four quarters and put in big time in last term when game on line. 7
5 NM Not as damaging as recent weeks, though still found the footy. 6
6 Geel At least won some ball but nearly half of disposals were ineffective. Four tackles and three clearances. 6
7 Melb Battling to get anywhere near early season form. 4
8 GWS Consistent four-quarter effort in the midfield and supported the backline with six rebound-50s. 7
9   Shoulder.  
10 WCE Hurt his shoulder early. Fought on but not his usual self. 5
11 Syd Tried playing dry weather footy and failed to adapt to the heavy conditions. 4
12 NEAFL Responded well to AFL axing with 30 possessions and eight tackles in midfield.
13 NEAFL Bye.
14 Haw Back into side and showed some dash on occasions. Hard to believe he was dropped. 6
15 StK Rediscovered a bit of his early-season form and booted two goals. 8
16 Bris Eight inside 50s and five centre clearances, coupled with a couple of brain fades. 6
17 WB Admirable performance in the midfield. Also helped out defence with five rebounds. 6
18   Hamstring.  
19   Hamstring.  
20   Hamstring.  
21 Ess Got a fair amount of ball, but a few defensive efforts were poor. Has to improve this area. 7
22 Coll Battled hard in midfield to end with 26 possessions. Not the worst. 6
23 Port Faded out after a busy first half. Certainly not the worst. 6

2015 Season

1    
2 NEAFL Starred in defeat. 31 touches and two goals.
3 Geel One goal and failed to lay a tackle which he needs to do to stay in team. 5
4 GWS Minimal impact in opening half when heat was on. 4
5 NEAFL Slow start but came alive to end with 31 possessions.
6 Adel Defensive work OK which has been a knock on him. 4
7 WCE The sub. Wasn’t his fault that he came on when the game was over. 1
8 Coll Subbed out after a terrible night. 1
9   Didn’t play for Gold Coast reserves.  
10   Didn’t play for Gold Coast reserves.  
11 NEAFL 19 possessions and a goal. In and out of game.
12 NEAFL Bye.
13 NEAFL A standout with 29 possessions and four goals in win.
14 NM Concerted effort to apply defensive pressure and rewarded with three goals. 6
15 WB Lively at half forward and could have ended with a better return than two goals. 6
16 GWS Not his day. Poor decisions with the football. 2
17 Adel Lively performance in midfield, won five clearances. 7
18 WCE Four-quarter contributor. Ran hard and running was rewarded. 7
19 Bris Could not be stopped. Brilliant midfield display. 8
20 Rich Suns’ best. Gave great drive at half back and played attacking football. 8
21 Ess Continued his career renaissance with 31 possessions and a goal. 8
22 Port Another big possession count to finish off season strongly. 7
23 Syd Strong end to year continued with team-high disposal count. Sun next year? 7

2014 Season

1 Rich Had some good involvements, but not a big factor. 4
2 Frem Spurr kept close but he still managed a reasonable share of the ball. 4
3 Bris Worked hard to get the footy but just not effective with it. 3
4 Haw Had a few touches but gave away a heap of free kicks. 3
5 Melb Early goal but struggled thereafter and subbed out after half time. 2
6 GWS Booted two early goals and creative throughout. 5
7 NM Provided great burst in the first term and showed excellent vision. 6
9 StK Shenton generally subdued him apart from one nice running goal. 4
10 WB Didn’t kick a goal but was lively and added some speed in attack. 5
11 Adel Nine tackles and a goal for the lively half forward. 5
12 NEAFL Showed some good signs but flashed in and out of the game.
13 WCE His opponent Hurn ran free and he had minimal impact himself. Subbed off 2
14 NEAFL Bye.
15 NEAFL Classy around goals (three) and lively around the contest.
16 Coll Defensive efforts were pleasing but needs more polish with disposal. 3
17 WB Heading back to the NEAFL after going missing for four quarters. 1
18 Bris Played in a variety of positions but impact minimal. 2
19 StK Misused ball early then got on top of Roberton. 6
20 Carl Flashed in and out but little impact other than the Suns’ first goal. 4
21 NEAFL Won his own ball but also provided plenty of run.
22 NEAFL Bye.

2013 Season

1 StK Looked dangerous all night. 0
2 Syd Had some bright spells, kicking two goals, and also spent some time on Kennedy. 6
3 Bris Missed a couple of gettable goals which marred his game. 5
4 Port Kicked a late goal to salvage something for the night. 2
5 GWS Matched on Haines and rarely sighted. Subbed off at three quarter time. 3
6 Frem Found it difficult to get involved when he was subbed on. 2
7 Melb Buzzed around the forward half and proved difficult to tie down. 6
8 WB Lively as always and kicked two goals. 5
9 Haw Brilliant long-striding forward who bagged five goals. 7
10 Geel Huge first term (nine disp) then only six in remaining three. Showed dash. 5
11 NM Another lively performance up forward and kicked a critical goal. 5
12 Ess Provided some pace at half forward but couldn’t hit the scoreboard. 5
14 Adel Pumped the ball inside 50 nine times but wasteful on goal. 6
15 Bris Only five touches after half time when game was still in the balance. 5
16 Rich Not his best outing across half forward. Petterd had his measure. 3
17 Coll Quiet night and sloppy with his disposal. 2
18 Carl Two goals but paid little respect to his opponent. 4
19 WCE Great breakaway pace produced two goals. Potential is there. 5
20 Melb Melbourne had trouble containing him all night but he couldn’t kick straight. 6
21 Port Not as lively as previous weeks, did cop an accidental hit in the head. 4
22 StK St Kilda recognised the speedster’s value by putting form defender Geary on him. 3
23 GWS Lively all day and capped it with a superb running goal. 6

7 NEAFL Chipped in with a goal but was well held.
8 NEAFL Was zippy all day and used his speed well at both ends.
10 Coll Kicked only goal late in game and very quiet playing across half forward. 3

12 NEAFL Not a factor.
14 NEAFL Showed a great ability to break away from congestion.
15 NEAFL Ripping first half before being taken off as insurance.
