2017 Digest:   Superb first year with Pies off a non-existent pre-season. Flown through summer this time, so look out!

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Such a weapon zooming through the centre square and eyeing off the goals. Three quarters off the top shelf. 7
2 Rich Proving well worth the two first-round picks the Pies sacrificed (and he’s all paid up now); 35 disposals and two fine goals. 8
3 Syd Superb third-quarter goal and got his hands dirty with a remarkable 14 tackles. Exemplified the Pies’ blue-collar approach. 7
4 StK Broke clear at times and wound up with the footy 29 times, but couldn't quite hit the mark going forward. 6
5 Ess Six tackles in first term set a standard, and 11 for the game added to 39 touches. Could not have done more. 8
6 Geel Five inside-50s, 26 disposals, five tackles and gut running kept the engine room ticking over. Solid effort. 7
7 Carl Couldn't finish off his work with effective disposals. Often blazed away kicking the maximum distance and turned it over. 5
8   Groin.  
9 Haw Another slow start (three-disposal first quarter) but got up and zooming as the game wore on. 7
10 Bris Despite fact he had 30 others were more damaging but still grabbed seven clearances and seven inside-50s. 8
11 Frem Fantastic with 25 possessions, one goal and five score assists. A bull. 8
12 Melb Busy as a three-in-a-bed. Roosted home a lovely long goal in third term and never stopped trying to lift his team; seven inside-50s. 8
13   Bye.  
14 Port Frontline midfielder was busy with 35 possessions. Effort was strong but not hugely damaging forward of centre. 7
15 Haw Workrate strong as usual and won his share of the pill. If only he had a tad more polish and penetration in his kicking. 6
16 Ess Kicking was horrible. Can’t be considered elite given his lack of penetration and precision; 21 possessions. 5
17 GCS Ran hard for all four quarters, and was useful around the stoppages. 17 contested possessions amongst his 32. 7
18 WCE Got 34 disposals but needs to use his speed more often. Had some key touches late when Pies surged. 7
19 Adel Laid a game high 12 tackles and kicked the goal to put Collingwood 50 points clear early in the third term. 7
20 NM Solid outing with 34 disposals, but need to see him use that explosive pace more often. 7
21 Port Unlucky not to hit the scoreboard twice, won ten clearances and had six inside-50’s for a big game in the midfield. 7
22 Geel Guthrie went to him at times and struggled. Only 12 effective disposals but did have seven clearances and five inside-50s. 5
23 Melb Got forward of the scrums to be a threat at stages, and was a good pressure player with eight tackles. 6

2016 Season

1 Syd Battled hard early but found more space as game progressed. Pies will be delighted with his debut. 8
2 Rich Racked up stats and while not always finding targets his eight inside-50s were a more than handy contribution. 7
3 StK Eight tackles and 17 contested possessions suggest string workrate but impact not as profound as numbers suggest. 6
4 Melb Battled hard for six clearances and four inside-50s. Didn’t have the guys around him to get on top. 7
5 Ess Ran hard and was super in the second half. Four inside-50s and seven clearances. 8
6 WCE Battled hard winning clearances and laying tackles. 7
7 Carl Tracked everywhere he went by Curnow. Won the ball OK but defensive game needs a lift. 6
8 Bris Did as he pleased in the midfield with devastating effect and finished off with three goals. 9
9 Geel Huge game. Touches came at crucial times and laid team-high eight tackles. 9
10 WB Steady in first half without dominating. Kept battling on despite rotation limits.. 7
11 Port Won his fair share of ball again but didn’t have the same impact going forward as he has been doing. 7
12 Melb Quiet first half but lifted after half time to gather 20 disposals. Seven clearances. 7
14 Frem Just kept on winning touches in the middle and was best afield. 8
15 Carl Lifted after being quelled by Curnow. Worked hard with five tackles and four clearances. 6
16 GWS Not dominant but performed strongly against old team in a winning midfield. 7
17 Adel Rivalling Dangerfield as the recruit of the season. Impressive again. 8
18 NM Often run down early and contained first half but finished strongly. 6
19 WCE Excellent at the stoppages and won a lot of hard, contested ball. Good contributor. 7
20 Rich Never stopped running but ball didn’t bounce his way at times. Nine tackles. 7
21 WB Fairly quiet early but came into it from second term and generated a lot of drive. 7
22 GCS Power runner in midfield but let himself down in front of goal (1.4). Huge night nonetheless. 8
23 Haw Huge effort after zero-touch first term. Outstanding final term: 10 clearances, two goals. 9

2015 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1 StK Huge. Grabbed seven clearances, 15 contested possessions and a goal. 8
2 Melb Slow starter but warmed into his work after quarter time to run it out strongly. 7
3 Syd Worked up and down ground and missed one target from 29 disposals. 7
4 GCS Strong nights work with 27 touches and two goals. Got the ball rolling early. 8
5 WCE Didn’t hurt the Eagles at all. 5
6 Haw Did what he had to do in the midfield and helped get his team get back in game. 6
7 Carl Capped off a stellar night’s work with three goals and Blues had no answer. 7
8 Adel Led the Giants with 13 contested possessions and a mammoth 28 handballs. 8
9 WB Extremely quiet by his high standards 4
10 Bris Not only got plenty of the footy – 27 touches, but also laid nine tackles. 7
11 Coll OK in midfield then went to Pendlebury after main break. Fair. 6
12 NM Along with Ward, the best of GWS’s onballers with 30 touches, six clearances. 7
14 Rich Shadowed Cotchin in first half then released to play free role in second. 6
15 StK Great work ethic and constantly productive. 7
16 GCS Not a big influence but battled away. 4
17 Geel Led team in contested possessions, clearances, tackles and disposals. 8
18 Frem Won a lot of contested ball among his 33 disposals. 7
19 Ess Grew into the game as it progressed and was a driving force after main break. 7
20   Groin.  
21 Syd One of the few Giants to stand up to Sydney pressure. Good effort. 7
22 Carl Superb with three goals from midfield. Whiley wasn’t able to stop him. 9
23 Melb Handy outing with 26 touches in what was probably his last game as a Giant. 7

2014 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1 Syd Ran himself ragged in a fine game. 7
2 StK St Kilda identified him as a danger and Curren applied hard tag. 4
3 Melb Burrowed in, ran and created from the word go. 8
4 WB Worked hard in head to head contest with Boyd but the Dog had his measure. 6
5 Adel Giants’ best with six clearances, four tackles and a goal. 8
6 GCS Refused to give in and dug in for four quarters. 7
7 Port Put in his usual tough effort, but beaten by the wily Cornes. 6
8   Ankle.  
9   Ankle.  
10 Rich Back after a few weeks off and found plenty of ball in midfield. 6
11 Haw Linked well around stoppages and was in everything. Among the best. 8
12 Ess Terrific ball-winner and put icing on cake with three goals. 7
13 Bris Burnt off tagger Beams and created plenty of moves. 7

16 Adel Steady ball-winner all day. 7
17   Groin.  
18 Geel Ran hard and won 10 contested possessions, seven inside-50s and 9 clearances. 8
19 Rich Good ball winner in midfield – 29 disposals, but was sloppy giving away five frees. 6
20 NM Went head to head with Ziebell and was fair. Kicking at times was scrappy. 6
21 Melb Ran with N Jones and more than matched Demons captain. Work-rate huge. 8
22 Coll Great early duel with Swan until the Pie was injured. Kept on trucking. 7
23 WB 28 touches and two goals in midfield to play leading role. Cramped late. 7

2013 Season

3 StK Knows how to find the ball and did well. 7
4 Melb Strong effort for three quarters in midfield then ran out of legs. 6
5 GCS Very quiet after big game the previous week – only three kicks. 4
6 Ess Classy display topped off with a last quarter goal. Does everything well. 7
7 Adel Stats looked good but his influence wasn’t great. 5
8   Rested.  
9 WCE Clearly benefited from a rest the previous week. 6
10 Carl Showed some class through the midfield. 19 uncontested possessions. 6
11 Geel One of the better performers with game-high 14 cont poss and a goal. 8
12 Port Continued to compete hard opposed Cornes. Lowered colors, but learned a lot. 6
14 NM Just needs to work on his disposal as wins the ball without a problem. 7
15 WB Provided some run through the middle and laid five tackles. 6
16 Syd Started back but drifted into midfield. Had decent numbers but lacked influence. 5
17 Ess Failed to notch 20 touches for just the second time this season. 4
18 Coll Worked hard from start to finish but had a few turnovers under pressure in second half. 6
19 Melb Continued to work hard in midfield. Had a team-high eight running bounces. 7
20 Frem Battled hard and was of one of few who played two-way football. 6

22 Rich Won the ball well, but wayward with his disposal. Six clearances too. 5
23   Ankle.  

2012 Season

5 WB Smart player, knows how to find the footy. 5
7 GCS A good all round game with five tackles and a goal. 6
8 Bris Seven of 19 disposals ineffective. 5
9 Ess Comfortably his best game as he adjusts to senior football. 7
10 Geel Two nice goals and actually played better when side struggled in a good sign. 5
12 Rich Youngster found the going tough and was rarely sighted with ball in hand. 3
13 Melb Got caught a few times but his willingness to take game on was a positive. 6
14 Syd Made some mistakes, but keeps improving and taking the game on. 6
15 Haw Better after half-time. Linked well from defence to half-forward. 4
