2017 Digest:   Valuable game time in opening two JLT matches. Hasn’t starred but did enough to be a big factor in VFL early doors.

16 VFL Took some good strong marks – especially late. Encouraging signs.
17 VFL Didn't have a massive impact in the air and was shifted back in the last quarter. Just the five touches.
18 VFL Shocking weather for key position players. Took just three marks and had nine disposals.
19 VFL Ineffectual up forward in first half. Can be ran off when ball hits deck. Wasn't disgraced when moved back. Still long term prospect.
20 VFL Played on Keeffe for long periods and tried hard enough.
21 VFL Did well under pressure down back and continues to improve each week.
22 VFL Very good down back again. Looks comfortable in the role.
23 Bris Debutante looked at home at centre half back with occasional run in ruck. But stretchered off after head clash with Durdin. 5
