2017 Digest:   Worked back from a knee injury suffered last season and saw action against GWS. Interesting to see where he starts.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

2 NEAFL Rotated between the ruck and attack. Kicked two goals and had 14 hitouts. Handy outing.
3 Coll If you didn’t know he was No. 18 wouldn’t have known he was out there. Dropped marks and failed to provide a presence. 1
4 WCE Shouldered most of the ruck duties and had a tough time opposed to Giles and Vardy. Tried, but not his best. 5
5 GWS Toiled away in the ruck but Mumford dominated knockouts. 3
6 Carl Got into some good spots up forward back failed to finish his work, both in the air or in front of goal. 5
7 Bris Shared ruck time with Naismith, then rested forward. A bit off his tucker with his touch. 5
8 NM Had his hands full early as lead ruck against Goldstein, and wasn’t able to greatly impact game. 4
9 StK Shaded by Longer in hitouts, but did more around the ground. 5
10 Haw Fired up early, but had to do better at times opposed to McEvoy. Gradually improved, but a bit off his best. 4
11   Bye.  
12 WB Second ruckman didn’t set the world on fire but was sighted enough to be of some support to the team. 4
13 Rich Struggled. Got caught with the ball on a few occasions but did have eight hit-outs to advantage. 3
14 Ess Combined with Naismith and was fair at best in the ruck and attack. 4
15 NEAFL Rucked well and was too big and strong in attack. Kicked 3.3.
16 NEAFL Rucked, but then also went forward. Booted five goals – too big and strong.
17   Senior emergency.  
18 StK Dominant first half with his marking and kicked three goals in first hour then finished with career best five. 8
19 Haw 17 hit outs in the ruck, had a solid outing. 5
20 Geel Rucked for most of the night and handy in great battle with Smith.. Grabbed 17 disposals and eight inside-50s. 5
21 Frem Some of his tap ruck work was terrific. Comfortable day at the office. 6
22 Adel Was reasonable in the ruck but not existent around the ground. 4
23 Carl Battled well after appearing to his leg in the second term. 17 disposals, six marks and 22 hit outs was ok. 6
EF Ess Took Hurley to the cleaners in what was a fine performance. Nine marks (four contested) and three goals. 8
SF Geel If he fell out of the boat he’d miss the water. He was as bad as a father’s day handkerchief. 1

2016 Season

1 Coll OK start to life at new club but was outdone by Tippett in ruck. Missed a few chances in attack. 4
2 Carl Excellent game by the former Eagle: 17 touches and three goals. Ran Blues ragged. 8
3 GWS Provided Tippett with good support in the ruck. 4
4   Foot.  
5 WCE Started well with a goal but after that very quiet against old side. 3
6 Bris Struggled in the wet conditions and only 16 hit-outs. Not his day. 4
7 Ess Helped Tippett out in the ruck and was a good option up forward despite kicking 1.4. 5
8 Rich Played second fiddle in the ruck to Tippett and not really a factor overall. 3
9 Haw Not a big factor as second ruckman. 3
10 NM Worked his way into ruck to relieve Tippett and was handy in attack providing a tall target. 5
11 GCS Booted a nice goal and adapted to the conditions OK. 4
12 GWS Had to ruck early after Tippett went down and competed hard on Mumford. 5
13 Melb Competed hard in ruck against Gawn to help nullify his impact. 4
15 WB Shouldered main ruck responsibility and was OK to an extent. 4
16 Geel Able to force a nil-all draw in the ruck which was a win for the Swans. 4
17 Haw Towering mark and goal in third term was a highlight. Helped team around stoppages. 5
18 Carl Limited impact in forward half and rotating in the ruck. 3
