2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Fascinating battle with Lynch. Dominated proceedings in the first half before Lynch finally worked him over. 8
2 Ess Stood tall guarding Daniher and even found time to take a big grab deep in attack, and goal, in third term. 7
3 StK Battled hard down back on a number of St Kilda tall forwards. Intercepted well in the air at times. 6
4 Rich Usually he can hold his ground against the better forwards, but not his time. Riewoldt bagged four. 5
5 WB Had hands full down back. Couple of clangers but also timely with his defensive work. Kicking a feature of game. 6
6 Port Attacked well from defence with 17 possessions at 94% efficiency. 6
7 Syd Stood the resting rucks, then Reid. Made some errors but never dropped his head. Good learning experience. 5
8 Haw Played on Roughead and beat him one-on-one. Showed some excellent defensive instincts and took some nice marks. 6
9 Adel Had his hands full trying to contain Walker who got the better of the battle. 5
10 Coll Had job on Moore and conceded three goals. Mixed good and bad but weight of numbers against made it tough. 4
11   Bye.  
12 Frem Played all over McCarthy who rarely had clean air. Even managed a strong contested mark over his opponent’s head. 7
13 Port Won the one on one battle with Charlie Dixon, and even kicked a goal on him in the third term. 7
14 GWS OK on Patton until half time before being put under enormous pressure. Patton broke free to kick four goals. 4
15 Ess Good duel with Daniher who ran hot in first half. Kept at his task and was important late in the day. 5
16 Geel Had his hands full minding Hawkins which was not easy given how easily the ball came into the Cats forward line. 5
17 Rich Intercepted well early on, but also had the fumbles and gave Riewoldt far too much room. Not his best outing. 4
18 Carl Great battle with Casboult and McKay. Could claims a points victory – just – over both. 6
19 WCE Beaten by Kennedy. The Eagle kicked six goals. 4
20 WB Given the role of minding Cloke. Stuck to his task well and never look flustered under pressure. 6
21 GCS Great leadership in defence and won the battle with Wright who he kept to one goal. 7
22 Melb Had a few issues with Pedersen who got off the chain for three goals. Not a great day for the key defender. 4
23 NM Started well with spoils on Brown, but then the Roo got away. 4

2016 Season

1 WCE Slaughtered by Josh Kennedy. Couldn’t stop his onslaught. 2
2 NM OK in defence and spoiling was a feature. 4
3 Geel Hands full all day with a variety of opponents but stuck to task as best he could. 5
4 GCS Impact minimal. Started on Lynch then moved to Day. Also did ruck duties. 5
5 WB Had a bit to do down back but stood up fairly well considering amount of ball that went in there. 5
6 Syd Did well on Tippett and Sinclair when they went forward. 5
7 Port Matched up well physically on Dixon, unfortunate to conceive five goals. 6
8   Foot.  
9   Foot.  
10   Foot.  
11   Foot.  
12 Frem Hands full with Mayne and Taberner who hit the scoreboard regularly. 4
13   Groin.  
14 Rich Big job mostly on Riewoldt and although he competed hard, beaten comprehensively. 4
16 GCS Swung forward and marked strongly after struggling in defence; two goals. 5
17 GWS The key defender, started in attack and was the back-up ruckman. Better in defence. 5
18 Ess Took Brown and at times McKernan and spoilt well when required in marking contests. 6
19 Port Found Westhoff and fellow Power key forwards difficult to contain. 5
20 Adel Tremendous across half back, one of the few Lions good players. 7
21 Carl Busy and effective minding either Jones or Phillips. 6
22 Geel Had Henderson among others and got better longer the game went. 6
23 StK A couple of handy efforts but not prominent. 3

2015 Season

2 NEAFL Caught the eye. 13 hitouts, 19 disposals, nine marks.
3 Rich First gamer who bagged a long range goal and had 13 hits outs. Bright future. 4
4 WCE Developing ruckman who was struggled with pace of the game. 3
5 GCS Showed some good signs but too often was against two or three opponents. 3
6 Carl Dustin Fletcher lookalike. Three towering marks in second half a highlight. 5
7 Port Rookie who showed maturity in taking on Ryder. 6
8 Ess Young defender was pitted against several Bombers. Tried hard. 3
9 StK Outgunned and shown up for lack of pace. 5
10 GWS No impact playing in attack with former Lion Patfull his man. 2
12 NEAFL Marked everything that went near him – 14 marks.
13 Adel Rookie still learning but held up well against Walker and co. 6
14 Frem Showed a bit and took some good marks in wet conditions. 5
15 Syd Youngster did a few nice things. Lots of Dustin Fletcher about him. 5
16 Melb Certainly not the worst down back. Flew for his marks and tried hard. 6
17 NM Spent time minding Petrie, which will have fast-tracked his AFL education. 6
18 Geel Took some strong intercept marks and put up hand for Rising Star nod. 7
19 GCS Continues to impress and a season or two off being a brilliant key defender. 6
20 Carl Responsible for Everitt most of the night. Big tick. 6
21 Adel Standing tall in defence and did a good job on Jenkins. 6
22 Haw Lowered colors to Frawley in the end but has plenty to work with. 5
23 WB Solid as usual until marking collision in third term ended his day. 6
