2017 Digest:   A fitness and momentum player, which plays directly into his finishing, but an integral part of the forward line.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Pies' new set-shot momentum drainer taking over from departed Cloke. Fluffed three sitters, although atoned with three in play. 5
2 Rich Has replaced Cloke as the momentum drainer in the Magpie attack: 0.6 from set shots this season. 3
3 Syd On fire with a four-goal first half but then cooled off. Missed one late, but in the end, his opening barrage was huge. 7
4 StK Early goal and stiff not to have one or two more, but kept in check by Geary. Carrying a sore arm. 4
5 Ess Presented well and played with energy but his finishing (1.3) a frustrating momentum drainer again. 4
6 Geel One kick in first half and six for the match. Two goals but for the most part wasn’t a huge factor. 4
7 Carl Struggled for impact after notching Pies’ first from a free kick and nailing the set shot. Struggled to win the ball thereafter. 4
8 GWS Went forward and presented well, although like Elliott plays as a target forward, not a pressure/front-centre player. 6
9 Haw Playing like he needs a decent spell in the VFL. Perhaps conscious of his injured shoulder but hopelessly out of form. 2
10 Bris Chimed in with 2.4 and could easily have kicked five in a good battle against Robertson. 6
11   Ill.  
12 Melb After week out he struggled to find the ball. Two goals but for most part wasn’t a factor that caused Dees too many issues. 4
13   Bye.  
14 Port Looked only dangerous forward in first half with two goals. Shut down by Clurey in the second half. 4
15 Haw Two goals in third term and another in third made him the team’s most dangerous small forward; 17 disposals. 7
16 Ess Ended day with four goals which was a pretty solid effort given scoreline against the team. 7
17 GCS Seemed set for a big night with two early goals. No further scores but still was dangerous. 7
18 WCE Looks like he is enjoying his footy again. Floated in and out, but was lively and bouncy when he was in the contest. Kicked sealer. 5
19 Adel Was well held by Luke Brown and unusually didn’t hit the scoreboard. 4
20 NM Got Collingwood’s forward line going early by dominating Nielson early. Faded heavily as the game wore on. 6
21 Port Not the result he was looking for in his 100th game, wasn’t clean with his hands early which affected his confidence. 4
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.  

2016 Season

1 Syd Looked threatening early until a head knock after a big fly seemed to curtail his exuberance. 4
2 Rich Six-goal return proved match-winning. Clean hands, timing and attack on ball brilliant. 9
3 StK Managed two goals (after six last week) with Geary wearing him like a glove. Struggled. 3
4 Melb Jetta wore him like a glove. To his credit he worked super hard but things didn’t fall his way. 5
5 Ess Relished weight of ball up Pies end and ended day with four goals. Lively all day. 8
6 WCE Did some desperate work up the field but couldn’t get shots at goal. 5
7 Carl Probably the Pies’ best with four goals and kept them in the game. Going very well. 8
8 Bris Kicked the last goal of the game but otherwise troubled by Gardiner’s defensive work. 5
9 Geel Two first-term goals then Bews able to keep him goalless. 4
10 WB Opened with a goal and in the thick of the action in first half. Shoulder in third. 5
11   Shoulder.  
12   Shoulder.  
13   Shoulder.  
14   Shoulder.  
15   Shoulder.  
16 GWS Main input was back-to-back goals crucial in giving the Pies impetus. Shoulder? 5
17   Shoulder.  
18 NM Rarely sighted until last-term goal. 2
19   Shoulder.  
20   Shoulder.  
21   Shoulder.  
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.  

2015 Season

1 Bris Floated in and out of game and four of his seven kicks were ineffective. 4
2 Adel Kicked a late goal but not a massive impact on the contest. 4
3 VFL Shadowed by Warren and booted four key goals.
4 VFL 22 possessions and tried hard.
5 VFL Started well but didn’t have an impact after half time.
6 VFL Kicked 3.2 across half forward. Important contributor.
7 VFL Slow start but played a role after half time at half forward.
8 GCS Energetic return to the senior team with three goals. 6
9 NM Creative effort at half forward. Marked well and set up numerous scores. 7
10 Melb Had Dunn to deal with and nipped in without being a constant threat. 4
11 GWS Quieter than last week but workrate was pretty good. 4
13 Frem Goal in each of opening two terms then drifted out of game after half time. 6
14 Haw Quiet early then three crucial misses in third term. 4
15 Port Needs to make the most of his limited opportunities on goal. 5
16 WCE Couple of errors then bagged a brilliant goal. 4
17 WB Just one kick and couldn’t get clear of Morris. 2
18 Melb Collingwood’s only winner up forward. Finishing was hit and miss, however. 7
19 Carl Continued fine form. Four goals and 10 score involvements to play a key role. 8
20 Syd Not potent enough in attack. 3
21 Rich Coach had seen enough by half time. Subbed out. Didn’t appear injured. 1
22 Geel Ended with three goals and could have kicked five if not for inaccuracy. 6
23 Ess Started like a house on fire but couldn’t finish off. Two goals, six tackles. 5

2014 Season

1 PM Played a half in the midfield and got his hands on the ball.
2 VFL Started back, but moved forward and looked more at home.
3 Geel Played half back but looked decidedly shaky at times. Will improve. 4
4 Rich Played half back and aside from one bad error attacked and used ball well. 6
5 NM Set side up with run and creativity from defence. Relishing freedom. 8
6 Ess Subbed out half time after copping injury at some point in second. 1
7   Foot.  
8   Foot.  
9 VFL Used down back and was solid with 24 possessions.
10 WCE Ball use going forward not up to usual standard but handy. One goal. 5
11 StK Flying start with three goals in first term. 6
12 Melb Will make the highlight reel after Howe took a screamer on him. Horrid day. 1
13 VFL Kicked two goals and was lively in attack.
14   Foot.  
15   Foot.  
16   Foot.  
17 VFL Got through OK and did some handy things.
18 VFL Used all over the ground and was a solid contributor.
19 Port Defended well. Like many teammate did his bit. 7
20 WCE Some good moments but then made mistakes that cost goals. 4
21 Bris Used at half forward and while work-rate OK he didn’t impact. One goal. 5
22 GWS Wasn’t a big factor and didn’t take a few opportunities. 4
23 Haw Flitted in and out for two goals but generally quiet as a roaming forward. 5

2013 Season

1   Hamstring.  
2 VFL Got through but needed the run.
3 Haw Sub. Gave life when he came on and won’t be sub next week. 4
4 Rich Finding his feet after return but can do better than eight effective disposals. 4
5 Ess Horror day. Couldn’t impact the game in general play or on the scoreboard. 2
6 VFL Still not reaching the heights expected. Just fair.

2012 Season

1 Haw Kicked two goals late second term but well held for the rest of game 5
2 Rich Developing well and instrumental in decisive third quarter. 5
3 Carl Bobbed up at times but not often enough to be influential. 5
4 Port Good third quarter in which he grabbed eight of his 14 disposals. 4
5 Ess Didn’t hit scoreboard but nipped in on a couple of occasions. 4
6 WB Seemed to carry knee injury and only goal came in final term (at key time). 3
8 Geel Six shots (3.2 including match-winner, one on the full) a valuable return. 7
9 Adel Quiet game from the half forward with no real impact on proceedings. 2
10 GCS Selfish a couple of times but relished the trouncing to kick two goals. 6
11 Melb Lively across half forward and his polish was a key. Two goals final term. 7
13 WCE Provided a lot of energy and drive at half forward. Two goals; top game. 7
14 Frem Didn’t hit the scoreboard but lively around half forward with his ball use. 6
15 Carl Lively at half forward and a key in first half but drifted out of the game. 7
16 Geel Used footy well and was lively at half forward – two goals, four inside-50s. 7
17 Haw Good first term when others struggled and played with zip again. 7
18 GWS In such a dominant team performance, failed to have much impact. 4
19 StK Won’t want to see one effort again but added a goal and five inside-50s. 5
20 Syd Worked his way into the game nicely, kicking a third-term goal. 6
21 NM Early goal, but a little subdued and missed several crucial shots. 5
22 WCE Kicked three goals and had a real crack. 7
23 Ess Busy in first half and kept up momentum. Clean hands and marked well. 7
QF Haw Matched against Stratton. OK without starring. 5
SF WCE Missed two chances at goal and fumbled at times. Still a touch overawed? 3
PF Syd A couple of bright moments but generally down. 4
