2017 Digest:   After a fine 2015 was one of many Dockers who slipped back last year. His intercept marking in defence is needed.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 Geel Tried hard down back. Won a heap of the footy early then faded as game dragged on. 5
2 Port Worked hard in defence but skill errors let him down. 5
3 WB Steady in defence. Didn’t shine but didn’t turn it over like players did last week. 5
4 Melb Veteran Docker shadowed Kent at times and was able to play a role defensively. Not much going the other way. 3
5 NM Needs to kick the ball better in defence. It puts the team under the pump. 5
6 WCE Gave away two free kicks to Darling which cost Freo goals. 4
7 Ess Contributed in defence with seven marks. 5
8 Rich Veteran defender struggled to impact either way. Others stepped up around him but not sighted. 2
9 Carl Made some costly errors. Lacking confidence. 4
10 Adel Too many costly turnovers in defence in the first term when the game was still a contest. 4
11   Senior emergency.  
12 WAFL Okay without banging to door down for a senior recall.
13   Bye.  
14 WAFL Played his part in the win with 24 possessions, four clearances.
15 WAFL Worked hard defensively to ensure Peel kept its head above water.
16 WAFL Okay at half back and even had some runs on a wing.
17 WAFL Was solid all day, as expected. However, he only used the footy at 50 per cent efficiency.
18 WAFL Was really good when he provided extra defensive support. Played on the wing as well, finished with 12 disposals.
19 WAFL Played off half back and found more of the ball. Was able to launch some offensive plays.
20 WAFL Bye.
21   Senior emergency.  
22 WAFL 19 possessions on a wing, before moving into the back half.
23 WAFL Played a number of roles and was a handy contributor.

2016 Season

Played for : Fremantle

1 WB Played customary role down back but the Bulldogs bypassed him well to stop intercepts. 4
2 GCS Gold Coast’s forwards had too much space and Ibbotson couldn’t attack. 3
3 WCE Not himself. Too many errors. Missed targets and dropped marks. 4
4 NM Freed up at times in the back half but wasn’t able to shut down space like he did last year. 4
5   Senior emergency.  
6 WAFL Responded to being dropped with 22 disposals, nine marks.
7 GWS Conceded height and was left in a no win situation a lot of the time. 4
8 Haw Steady defender had a low key game. 5
9 Rich Still struggling to have a big impact on games. 5
10 StK Not the worst but often found himself stretched by big forwards in contests. 5
11   Wrist.  
12   Wrist.  
13 WAFL Had to play key defensive role on return and had 24 disposals, nine marks.
14   Senior emergency.  
15 WAFL Bye.
16 Melb Shifted onto Watts after his hot start but then freed up again in second half. OK. 5
17 Geel Had Menzel and did that job pretty well for much of the game. Quiet offensively 5
18 GCS Did not use the ball well and struggled to have an impact. 3
19 Syd Up and down. Had issues with Rohan but also took some strong marks. 5
20 WCE Took some nice marks but is a shadow of his former self. 4
21 Adel Played in front of Taylor Walker and helped Alex Silvagni to keep him quiet. 5
22 GWS Held up quite well defensively considering the Fremantle onslaught. 5
23 WB Played his best game for the season. Took 14 marks in defence. 8

2 Geel Forced to play tall at times in defence and did the job well. Helped by midfield. 6
3 WCE Developed into one of Freo’s most important players down back. 7
4 Syd Key player in defence where his interceptions were vital. 7
5 Melb Comprehensively outplayed Watts. 7

7 WB Had Crameri in his back pocket being sent to Dickson late. 6
8 NM Took eight marks and the Roos found it tough to get the ball past him. 6
9 Adel Great tussle with Lynch. 5
10 Rich Part of cobbled-together back six that had a rough night. 5

14 Bris Further pushed All-Australian claims down back, mostly as the spare. 7

18 GWS Not as prominent as he’s been in most games. 5
