2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 Haw Worked hard throughout, but not as prolific as he can be. Kicked two important goals though to keep momentum flowing. 6
2 Bris Started in great style with seven disposals. Then just played out his role. 5
3 Carl Really a non-factor for the his team which was disappointing given game slowed down to suit his dour style. 4
4 Adel Did not get his hands on the footy enough to hurt the Crows, spent most of the night in the back half. 5
5 Coll Came off the bench as relief onballer. A couple of good moments but quiet afternoon. 3
6   Senior emergency.  
7 Frem The big ground was suited to his run but he couldn’t provide the energy. 5
8 VFL Rarely wasted a disposal – had 25 touches. Good contributor, but are his cards marked?
9 VFL Used in back half for long periods and while okay, wasn’t his absolute best.
10 VFL Unable to get much going on the day. 15 touches, but at least used it pretty well.
11 GWS Back in the team and got a bit of the ball, but a long way off the play he once was. 5
12 VFL Didn’t get a truckload of the footy but was steady enough. Can't see him breaking back in soon though.
13   Bye.  
14 VFL Okay without being great. 19 possessions, but provided good leadership.
15 VFL Worked into the game for 20 possessions and did some good work in second half.
16 VFL Did what he has done for much of the year. Got a bit of the footy, but wasn’t a real force.
17 VFL Had a massive 38 touches. Will struggle to get back in seniors if they still healthy, but at least he is a reliable backup.
18 VFL His stats won't show it, but he had a good first half.
19 VFL Solid day for the seasoned AFL player. 28 disposals at 85.7 percent efficiency and five inside 50s.
20 VFL Bye.
21   Didn’t play for Essendon VFL.  
22 VFL Won the ball well and distributed it smartly in nail-biting win.
23 VFL Good ball winner as always and drove the Bombers into attack on six occasions.

2015 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 Syd Racked up some kicks early but faded right out in second half. 4
2 Haw Played his part in midfield and had some very handy efforts in dying minutes. 7
3 Carl Found space all day and used it to hurt the Blues. Great link player. 7
4 Coll Ran hard to be a factor. Two goals and two score assists a handy afternoon. 7
5 StK Prime mover around ground for Dons. 6
6 Frem Kept running to give Essendon an outlet. Had six inside 50s from 25 possessions. 6
7 NM Petered out as game wore on. Only seven disposals after half time. 5
8 Bris Was most prominent in first half when contest was most alive. 7
9 Rich Decent numbers but lacked penetration as a midfielder. 6
10 Geel Won share of footy but lots of it was dinking balls in the back half. 4
11 WCE Worked his guts out with 31 touches, nine tackles and five clearances. 8
13 Haw Five inside-50s and two clearances to go with a mountain of possession. 7
14 StK As usual when Dons lose he copped vitriol from Essendon fans. 3
15 Melb Kept his team in touch early when others struggling. Ran his backside off. 8
16 NM Ran hard to link in chains from defence to attack; 13 CPs. 7
17 Port Against Colquhoun initially. Won more than his share of the ball. 6
18 WB His heat map would have glowed red in the back pocket. Spent all game there. 5
19 GWS Influential first half across half back but touches didn't hurt as much in second half. 6
20 Adel Many of his touches were cheapies in the back half. Two inside-50s not enough. 3
21 GCS Made a couple of costly errors in the back half. Effort not in question. 5
22 Rich Ran hard to lead team’s disposal count. Seven inside-50s and six rebounds. 7
23 Coll Three goals, five inside-50s, four clearances and three tackles. Big game. 8

2014 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 NM Handy game without having enormous influence. 5
2 Haw Shadowed by Shiels in parts but kept racking up stats. Only three inside-50s. 6
3 Carl Kicked three goals to have an impact on the scoreboard and always found space. 7
4 Frem Found stacks of the footy in midfield but had few supporters. 7
5 StK Kept ticking all night, which was a rarity among Bombers. 7
6 Coll Humungus first half (20 disp) set team alight. Ended with nine inside-50s. 8
7 WB Tagged and managed only 13 disposals and one goal. 4
8 Bris On Adcock initially. Got himself into space and stood up when it mattered. 6
9 Syd 26 possessions, but another Bomber whose numbers belied his lack of impact. 5
11 Rich Slowly got the better of his duel with Ellis. 23 kicks says that he worked hard both ways. 7
12 GWS Squared his tussle with Scully. 5
13 Melb Tagged well by McKenzie and only had first kick late in second term. Poor night. 3
14 Adel Broke free to kick two goals from 19 disposals. 6
15 Geel Would have been expected to contribute more than he did but kept battling. 6
16 Port Continually made himself available in the midfield chain of disposals. 7
17 Coll Matched on Lumumba and productive all day. 7
18 WB Quiet early but worked into contest as it dragged on – 11 disposals after half time. 6
19 Syd Minimal influence early, but exerted bigger influence in third term. 6
20 Rich Racked up the stats but no star by any stretch. Six inside-50s but no goals. 6
21 WCE Not flashy on the wing but always effective. 6
22 GCS Worked between arcs for regulation disposal count. Efficiency down a tad. 6
23 Carl Won his usual amount of ball. Provided some outside run and carry. 6
EF NM Jacobs had stopping job on him. Reasonable output without starring. 6

2013 Season

2 Melb Ran free through midfield all night. Strong effort. 7
3 Frem Stood up to Crowley’s harassing tactics. Came out on top – eight free kicks! 7
4 StK Ticked over constantly and had a strong game. 7
5 Coll Ball magnet in the midfield and continually got his hands on the ball. Strong effort. 7
6 GWS Subbed off after copping a knock to the leg. Was just going before injured. 2
7   Groin.  
8 Bris Tagged by Raines and while he worked hard effectiveness was down. 5
9 Rich A standout with his willingness to run and spread. Four-quarter performance. 9
10 Syd Won the ball well enough but efficiency was well down early. 6
11 Carl Well held in first half. When he did get it disposal was ordinary. 4
12 GCS Held by Rischitelli until the Sun was injured. Then exploded to lead Bomber charge. 7
14 WCE Came good late in game after being restricted. 7
15 Port Hurt leg just before half time and pushed forward. Kicked two crucial goals. 7
16 WB 19 disposals in the second half to be a critical play in the victory. 7
17 GWS Quiet initially, his class shone through as the game wore on. 6
18 Haw Only one inside-50 in first half and three for the game not enough for a key. 5
19 Coll Hammered by Sidebottom early then pushed to half back. Horrid day. 5
20 WCE Good battle with Masten and broke even. Didn’t star but held his own. 6
21 NM Greenwood kept him under control. 5
22 Carl Was well held by Curnow but did lay a team high six tackles. 5
23 Rich Went head to head with Deledio and edged the contest. Didn’t stop running all night. 7

2012 Season

3 GCS Had 20 possessions, but also eight tackles. 5
4 Carl Excellent game. Ran hard for 36 disposals and a goal. 8
5 Coll Shut out by Clarke. Grabbed 11 of his 13 disposals in second half. 4

7 WCE Covered heaps of ground in an excellent first half and powered on. 8
8 Rich Very good in first half and finished strongly. 7
9 GWS Again found plenty of the ball, but not quite the influence he has had of late. 6
10 Melb Kept plugging away without being incisive. 5
11 Syd McVeigh locked down on him in and his output was curtailed. 4
