2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS New skipper showed no signs of rustiness and found the footy at will, particularly early in the contest. 9
2 Ess Inspirational. Superb efficiency and 10 disposals in third quarter lifted a side facing a massive defeat. Late foot injury slowed him. 9
3 StK Continued good start to the year as skipper with 30 possessions and a goal in the middle of the ground. 8
4 Rich Most effective in third term when he had eight disposals and added the first of two goals. Took a strong overhead mark in final term. 7
5 WB Huge game highlighted by 36 touches, five tackles, six inside-50s and a monster appetite for the contest. 8
6 Port Just the 21 possessions as the Power put plenty of time into him. 5
7 NEAFL Quad.
8   Quad.  
9 Adel Set the example. Stood alone as the only Lion to contribute solidly across all four quarters. 8
10 Coll Among Lions better performers with 28 disposals and three goals. Lacked support but tried his bum off against old side. 8
11   Bye.  
12 Frem After average start, went up a cog after the first break to lead the side in style to victory. Had 35 disposals. 8
13 Port Won his fair amount of clearances but didn’t exert his influence on the game enough. 6
14 GWS Injured shoulder in the opening 60 seconds and took no further part. Badly missed. 1
15   Shoulder.  
16 Geel In and under all night, trying to set an example for others to follow. 6
17 Rich Quiet start and wasn’t really ever able to get into full stride in midfield. 4
18 Carl All class. Never far from the action and not only set up goals, he bagged three of his own. 8
19 WCE Classy with the ball and had a whopping 41 disposals. 8
20 WB Tough in-and-under in the contest, but just one centre clearance. 6
21 GCS Blitzed. Team high 32 disposals and four goals. Took home his second Marcus Ashcroft medal this year. 9
22 Melb Massive effort highlighted by six inside-50s, three goals, 16 contested possessions and 33 disposals. 9
23 NM After a powerful start he was reined in by Dumont after half time. 6

2015 Season

1 Coll Started in midfield and had 32 disposals (25 handballs). Nice start for new club. 7
2 NM OK without taking charge of the game at any stage. 5
3 Rich Had 32 of 35 touches by last change. Helped bring teammates into game. 7
4 WCE Held early but still made the Lions’ top four possession getters in the end. 7
5 GCS Battled against the tide and booted two third-quarter goals. 8
6 Carl Racked up the stats. Six inside-50s and seven clearances. 7
7 Port After four touches in opening quarter, finished with a game high 32. Class! 8
8 Ess Contested strongly and didn’t concede an inch. 6
9 StK Never stopped trying. Only one to really give Brisbane a hope of fighting back. 8
10 GWS Lacked support but continued to find the ball and kicked three handy goals. 8
12 WB Four-quarter contributor. Hurt shoulder late in game. 6
13 Adel Game high 32 (11 ineffective). Possessions don’t enough opposition enough. 7
14 Frem Never stopped trying in midfield. Having a fine season despite team’s woes. 8
15 Syd Ran his backside off. Only one inside-50 so influence not huge. Two goals. 7
16 Melb Did what he could but couple of selfish efforts. Seven clearances. 6
17   Shoulder.  
18 Geel Worked hard in midfield for three quarters then sat out final term. 6

2 Syd Played an excellent game through the midfield and up forward. 7
3 Geel Among the better Pies despite copping leg knock. Team high 14 cont poss. 8
4 Rich Found far too much space opposed to Grigg. Orchestrated Pies’ big lead. 8

6 Ess Laid nine tackles to go with nine clearances and 14 contested possessions. 8
7 Carl Slowish start then his game grew and finished with four goals. 7
9 Adel Everywhere in first half – 20 disp, five clearances, goal. Nothing after that. 6
10 WCE Only 10 of his disposals were kicks but two goals including a ripper in final term. 7
11 StK Best afield and had a big night all over the ground. 8
12 Melb Quiet by his standards but what he did had a touch of class about it. Two goals. 6
13   Calf.  
14 Haw Worked hard first game back after one-week calf injury. Seven clearances. 7

16 Adel Long awaited return, looked a mature player and played out the four quarters. 6
17 GCS Second game back and showed how much he has been missed all year. 8
18 GWS Knocked up winning the ball. Especially influential after half time to get Pies going. 7

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 VFL Good outing whilst rehabbing from injury.
2 Rich Won a lot of the ball in first quarter then in and out of game. 6
3 Carl Workload increased with Ball off. Got a bit of mostly uncontested footy. 5
4 Port Grabbed 27-touches (89% efficiency) and kicked a goal. Was a force all day. 8
5 Ess Efficiency let him down but had so much footy – 10 inside 50s. 8
6 WB Thriving on the extra workload in Ball’s absence. A driving force. 8
7 Bris In the thick of it all night. 7
8 Geel Four-quarter contribution included some good work ripping ball out of packs. 7
9 Adel Best on ground with two goals, seven clearances and six inside 50s. 9
10 GCS Great form rolled on with 16 contested possessions, seven clearances, a goal. 8
11 Melb Enormous – 7 clearances, 7 inside-50s and 1.3. Key to the win. 9
13 WCE Eight inside-50s, three goals. Only one mark, indicative of superb inside game. 9
14 Frem Torched Crowley and ended with four clearances, five inside-50s and a goal. 8
15 Carl Tagged by Carrazzo and found his shadow tough to shake. 5
16 Geel Didn’t seem to have an opponent – five clearances and seven inside-50s. 9
17 Haw Four goals, five inside-50s and 14 contested possessions … in a losing side. 8

19 StK Huge again with eight clearances, great efficiency and 14 contested poss. 8
20 Syd Put in a stunning display, including 11 clearances and three goals. 8
21 NM Simply outstanding with game-high 38 possessions. Big chance for Brownlow. 9
22 WCE Copped a tag but still had 30 possessions and kicked a goal. 7
23 Ess Big first quarter in tandem with Swan and kept going all night. 8
QF Haw Magpies most consistent midfielder in first half. No goals though. 7
SF WCE Huge around stoppages with 10 clearances, five inside-50s and seven tackles. 8
