2017 Digest:   Looking to carry through strong finish to 2016, but competition is tighter. Talented but needs to go for first option more often.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1    
2 WCE Kicked a goal and showed dash at times. A steady effort. 5
3 Bris Had some good moments and marked the ball well in the air, but kicking at times was hot and cold. 5
4 Coll Competitive type, 21 touches and a goal a healthy contribution. 6
5 Geel Quiet start then worked into the game without setting world on fire. One goal and hit target with every one of his 18 disposals. 5
6 Haw Calf issue in first half but wasn’t hampered much. Linked well at times though midfield and played his role. 6
7 GWS Wingman showed some dash at times in an even effort without starring. Kicked two goals to start final term to kick-start team. 7
8 Carl Had it 21 times but only had the seven kicks and didn’t provide as much run and carry as last week. 6
9 Syd Big second quarter and had a good day overall. 6
10 WB Ran hard and wasn’t the worst but not as incisive as other weeks. 5
11   Bye.  
12 Adel Did some nice work across halfback and pushed forward on occasions but missed his two shots on goal. 5
13 NM Okay, but wasn't able to cut through often enough. 5
14 GCS Off the boil in recent weeks and was quiet. Missed a gettable goal. 2
15   Senior emergency.  
16 VFL Had 23 touches and kicked a goal in Sandy's loss to the Bulldogs.
17 VFL Underwhelming in the forward line early but played better when moved into the midfield. Found it 26 times.
18 Syd Was fairly handy in his return to the side and bounced back after being crunched by Mills. 5
19 Port A mixed bag, some good points and a couple of inexplicables. 5
20 WCE His team's highest disposal winner with 30 but that was counterbalanced by fumbles and use of wrong options. 6
21 Melb Burst through a few tackles to give the Saints some life, but one of many to be inefficient by foot. 4
22 NM Had another 30 possession game which is a good indicator of his ongoing progress. Good day. 7
23 Rich Possession-wise was not the worst but didn’t have a huge impact on the flow of the game; 18 disposals. 5

2016 Season

1 Port Impressive performance in just his 11th game of senior footy. 6
2   Played in VFL trial against Williamstown.  
3 VFL Good ball winner again with 33 touches and a goal. Doing all he can to push back in.
4 Haw Had a few good bursts but didn’t win as much ball as he has at VFL level. 5
5   Senior emergency.  
6 Melb Best game he has played for Saints. Moved well and won plenty of ball. 8
7 NM Did a few nice things but less influence than the previous week. 4
8 WCE Couldn’t get into it and seemed overawed in his home state. 2
9 VFL Massive outing again. Far too good for VFL level, just needs consistency.
10 VFL Bye.
11 VFL Good performer again with 19 touches and two goals in thrilling win.
12 Carl Put himself in the right positions to win the ball, but had a couple of terrible kicks. 5
14 Geel Won plenty of disposals but often rushed his kicks. A lot of good to work with. 6
15 GCS Got hold of the ball a fair bit, but indecisive when sizing up options. 4
16 Ess Didn’t make an impression. Occasionally his concentration seems to wander. 3
17 Melb Looks on the cusp of a breakthrough at times. More minutes in defence this game. 4
18 WB Difficult to get a line on him. Shows glimpses of real potential but drifts in focus. 4
19 NM Coach said this was one of best games for club. Still some lapses but improving. 6
20 Carl Big first term and had a good game. 6
21 Syd Continues to make plenty of progress as a winger. 7
22 Rich Continued to show strong ball-winning capacity on the wing. 6
23 Bris Good kick winner in first half and completed a good second half of the year. 6
