2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Not a huge impact in the match, though he made his possessions count. 4
2   Senior emergency.  
3 NEAFL Superb with his ball-winning in midfield to end with 39 disposals and six inside-50s.
4 NEAFL Solid outing working up off half forward. Had 28 touches and kicked a goal.
5 WB Used forward and back. Two goals and five tackles. Small contribution and something to work with. 4
6 Port Opposed to Polec and did a reasonable job, whilst still getting his share of the footy. 7
7 Syd Won some contested ball off a wing and booted a third-term goal. Looking more comfortable at senior level. 5
8 Haw Found himself involved in some nice passages of play but relatively quiet day with 13 disposals. 4
9 Adel Almost half of his 16 disposals were ineffective. 4
10 Coll Looked a little fumbly at times and made mistakes with ball in hand; 11 disposals and little impact. 3
11   Bye.  
12 NEAFL Just the 13 touches in midfield and at half forward. Laid five tackles though.
13 NEAFL Excellent with 26 touches, six tackles and two goals. Ball use was very good.
14 NEAFL Big ball winner in midfield and at half forward. 33 possessions, five clearances.
15 NEAFL Best afield in a big win. 34 touches, seven clearances and four goals. Impressive.
16 NEAFL Big effort. 28 possessions, seven inside 50s and seven clearances.
17 Rich Combative at half forward and in midfield. Kicked a couple of goals when he found space. 6
18 Carl Did a few useful things including two goal assists. 4
19 WCE Good workrate and won the hard ball. Kicked a goal too. 7
20 NEAFL Good without being a star on the day. 18 disposals and a goal.
21 NEAFL One of the Lions best in tight loss. 32 possessions and gave his all.
22 NEAFL Played his part in midfield with 26 touches and five clearances.
23 NEAFL Bye.

2016 Season

1   Played in NEAFL trial against Gold Coast.  
2 NEAFL Had the ball on a string in midfield with 39 possessions. Brave.
3 NEAFL Backed up last week’s huge effort with another 30 possessions. Going well.
4 NEAFL Again the Lions’ best in midfield. One of the few to show any resistance.
5 NEAFL Not as big of an outing in terms of possessions, but kicked three handy goals.
6 Syd Celebrated first game with a goal. Seemed to do enough to get a second game. 5
7 Port Had four attempts at goal and missed them all. 5
8 Coll Just four disposals until half time. Lifted late in game but too little, too late. 5
9 Melb One goal and missed a couple of other chances playing as a mid-sized forward. 3
10 Haw Got more involved as the game wore on and used the ball cleanly by hand. 3
11 Carl Not a lot but laid five tackles and showed class on a couple of occasions. 5
12 Frem Struggled to get involved with only one kick. 1
13 WCE Settled in attack but out of his depth. Had just two kicks. 4
14 Rich Struggled to get into the game and looked off the pace on transition. 2
16 NEAFL Consistent performer with 24 touches, three clearances in midfield.
17 GWS Came in as a late inclusion but hard to say if he did enough to avoid being omitted. 5
18 Ess Quiet outing and looked a bit off the pace compared with teammates. 3
19 Port Involved a couple of good passages of play and had three scoring assists so far from the worse. 5
20 Adel OK across half back with three rebound-50s and five tackles. 6
21 Carl Rookie still on a learning curve and did a couple of use things. 4
22 Geel Could not get into the game at all playing across half forward. Four kicks. 2
23 StK Showed he has something to work on and coach impressed with year. 4
