2017 Digest:   Has looked like a man feeling his way at a new club during community series. More expected once he’s acclimatised.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Former Cat struggled – 17 disposals. Doesn't find footy enough and doesn't impact when he does. 4
2 Melb Did some handy things but lacked the required class at crucial moments. 5
3   Had 21 touches and laid six tackles in midfield battle after being dropped from seniors. Steady outing.  
4 PM 22 touches and a goal. Worked hard on the outside to cover off exits, and got forward too.
5 VFL One of the Blues' best in win over the Seagulls. Had 28 touches, six inside-50s and four score assists.
6 Syd Former Cat kicked sealing goal late in game but up to that point had struggled. Disposal continues to let him down. 3
7 Coll Can’t fault his intentions: a big smother and strong late tackle, but playing for his career. 2
8   Knee.  
9 VFL Excellent effort on the wing. Had 26 touches and seven inside 50s in the win.
10   Senior emergency.  
11   Bye.  
12 VFL Not a massive outing, but kicked two important goals in the overall context of the game.
13   Senior emergency.  
14 Rich No impact in first half and run down twice. Will be sweating when Round 15 teams are announced. 3
15 VFL Battled hard in tight in midfield/half back. Had 21 touches and laid five tackles.
16 VFL One of the better Blues on the day. 24 touches, seven inside 50s and nine tackles.
17   Rested.  
18 VFL Made some strong tackling efforts and was generally clean and composed around the ground.
19 VFL What he did was good but wasn't enough of it. Needs to find more of the ball as an inside midfielder.
20 Ess Couldn’t get near it. Five possessions for the day. Blues starting to winder why they traded for him. 1
21 WCE A quiet night. Had 11 touches. 4
22 Haw Concussed in the 3rd term and played no further part. Struggled before that, but still laid 8 tackles which suggests he worked hard. 3
23 Syd Failed again to make the most of an opportunity afforded to him. Only the 8 disposals. 3

15 VFL Really good early until rested for the second half.

6 Melb Stats not huge but what he did had some polish about it. 4
7 Adel Youngster at least had a willingness to take the game on. OK. 5

16 Coll Really battled up forward playing defensively then sent back later. 3
17 Ess Best effort in short career. Kicked three goals and worked well up forward. 6
