2017 Digest:   May be coming off a limited preparation but first two outings had fans looking askance at Gubby Allan’s four-year deal.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB After late call-up got involved, kicked a goal and showed a bit – to the relief of many in the camp. 5
2 Rich One nice goal on half time but missed sitter after a great tackle soon after. Not enough from the half million-dollar man. 3
3 Syd Quiet offensively but did his bit defensively at times in front half. Needs to do more. 4
4 VFL Worked into the game after a slow start in attack. Ended with two goals and applied good pressure.
5 VFL Only the nine possessions in attack and one goal. Laid five tackles, but not enough to cut it for a recall.
6 VFL Veteran remains under the pump with a sub-standard VFL performance. 16 disposals, no goals and five tackles.
7 VFL Okay without starring. Must be wondering whether he made the right call to leave Freo.
8   Senior emergency.  
9 VFL Had 12 touches and tackled hard, but was goalless.
10   Bye.  
11 VFL Used higher up the ground and was consistently involved. Had 19 touches, and used them well.
12 VFL Ended with four goals – two in the final term. Worked hard enough, but still not near a recall.
13   Bye.  
14 VFL Booted five goals – a couple over the top in square.
15 VFL Worked hard to present. Took eight marks and laid eight tackles. Okay.
16 VFL Goalless in the win, but played up the ground and laid some good tackles as usual.
17 VFL Played high half forward and provided a nice target in transition. Veteran had just 13 touches, though.
18 VFL Played as a lead up forward but just didn't find enough of the footy. 11 disposals.
19 VFL Simply doesn't do enough at VFL level, which is really disappointing. Inefficient 16 disposals.
20 VFL Kicked a goal and tackled well, but wasn’t a major factor.
21 VFL Got a lot of the ball – as he should against North Ballarat – but used it very well.
22 VFL Hard worker as always around the footy. 24 possessions and six clearances.
23 VFL Only fair with 16 touches and eight marks in loss.

2016 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 WB Another who worked hard enough but got little reward. Just 10 touches. 3
2 GCS Missed when he needed to kick goals. Needs to lift. 4
3 WCE Has the yips. Is missing the easy goals. 3
4 NM Came right into the game in the middle quarters working up from half forward. 5
5 Carl His goal came after the final siren. Needs to do more. 4
6 Adel Used to be a reliable set shot, now at times struggles to make the distance. 6
7 GWS Kicked three goals. His accuracy returned. That will help his confidence. 6
8 Haw Worked hard up forward and tackled strongly brilliantly set up Langdon goal. 6
9 Rich Competed but still finding his feet at AFL level. 4
10 StK Down early but lifted and made a contribution. 6
11 Ess Had five shots for goal and kicked three majors. Finding some form. 6
12 Bris Found form with a four-goal haul and defensive pressure (nine tackles). 8
13 Port His best game for a long time, providing a presence at half forward. 7
14 Coll Starved of chances but couldn’t get a foothold in attack. 2
16 Melb Bobbed up for third term goal and increased work-rate but slow start matched team. 4

20 WCE Played at both ends. Had 22 disposals. Couldn’t kick a goal. 6
21 Adel Played in defence. Did a reasonable job. 6

3 WCE One of his better performances – especially in the first half. 6
4 Syd Booted the sealer and was involved in a lot of contests. 6
5 Melb With Pavlich concussed he stepped up to kick four goals. Tackled well. 8

15 Haw Couldn’t sniff it in attack and was hampered by sore hip. 4
16 Carl Fantastic game. Kicked four goals and laid eight tackles. Influential. 7

19 StK Covered lots of ground from full forward and bagged two goals. 5
20 WCE No impact until the second half. Kicked one goal. 4

22 Melb Strong tackling game and set up shots. Must kick better for goal. 5
23   Rested.  
QF Syd Couldn’t get away from Grundy. One goal from four marks. 5
PF Haw Missed a crucial shot early. Possibly not the answer up forward. 3

23 Port Did his bit in attack apart form one scare with groin. 5

12 Bris Good duel with Staker and kicked a couple of goals 5

2012 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 Geel Laid five tackles and set up some shots but didn’t score himself. 5

3 Bris Quiet again. Struggling to find the footy. 3
4 StK Played negating forward role on Fisher and did it well. 6
5 Carl On Duigan at the start. In and out of game. 4
6 GCS Presented hard all night and was one of the best for Fremantle. 7
7 Port Set the tone with crunching tackles and also kicked three goals. 7
8 Haw Perfect scoring run came to end when a shot was touched. Well contained. 4
9 WCE The forward line didn’t function well and he was a part of it. 4
