2017 Digest:   Hasn’t played senior football in two-and-a-half years but looked good in JLT and big chance to play Round 1.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GWS First game in 960 days and was up to the pace of the game. 6
2 Haw Played forward and back and was equally handy in both roles. Snagged a goal and laid five tackles. 6
3 Port The surprise packet up forward in the absence of Josh Jenkins with two goals. 6
4 Ess Got the party rolling with a great right foot snap for a goal in the first minute of the match. 5
5 GCS Really worked hard in attack and took nine marks and booted a goal. 6
6 Rich One of the many highlights for the Crows in 2017, remember he hadn’t played a senior game for over two years and is starring. 6
7 NM No real impact in opening hour as ruck support for Jacobs. Bit better in second half but not his day. 4
8 Melb Stopped Jack Watts from scoring, but often got caught as the last man in defence, not as mobile as he used to be. 5
9 Bris The perfect foil for Walker, who got plenty of attention, to snag two goals. 6
10 Frem Career high four goal performance, not as athletic as Mitch McGovern but just as deadly in front of goal, and a perfect foil in attack. 8
11 Geel Didn’t have a kick in the first half and six for the night for one goal. Not his night but season been strong. 2
12 StK Kicked a clever left foot snap in the first term, then shifted to defence to accommodate Jono Beech. 3
13   Bye.  
14 Haw Got his hands to plenty of footy but couldn’t clunk any marks, did manage a goal in the last term. 2
15 SANFL Responded to his demotion with two fourth-quarter goals after a slow start.
16 WB May have lost a yard in pace due to the knee injuries but his football smarts and intercept marking is exceptional. 7
17 Melb Followed Pedersen and had his measure all night. Versatile player. 6
18 Geel Went to Menzel and was able to give him a short back and sides. Played his role to a tee. 7
19 Coll Two goals in the last term after Don Pyke threw everything but the kitchen sink for victory. 6
20 SANFL Bye.
21   Ankle.  
22   Ankle.  
23 SANFL Didn’t put a foot wrong in defence in return from injury.
QF   Senior emergency.  
PF Geel Played his role without getting too aroused by his effort; 13 disposals and one goal. 4
GF Rich Defensive forward option but couldn’t do any damage offensively. Ended day with three effective touches. 1

16 SANFL Sound if unspectacular afternoon at centre half-back.
17   Thumb.  
18   Thumb.
