2017 Digest:   Staking a claim for Round 1. Impressed coaches and teammates in pre-season, but does need to go up a level.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 WB Went to Stringer and Cloke at times and contested every issue. Looks an upgrade on the departed Brown. 4
2 Rich No job too difficult is his motto. Left foot is safe and he gets far more involved in attack than his departed predecessor Brown. 6
3 Syd Humungous task on Buddy in his 250th. In his wildest dreams, he wouldn’t have thought he could keep him goalless. He did. 8
4 StK Took Membrey/Bruce and continued to add to his claims as Magpie recruit of the year. 5
5 Ess Harried Daniher but the big Don got his tail up when rucking and became the match-winner. 4
6 Geel Had job on Taylor and did reasonably well. Did get caught a few times in the back half but will learn from experience. 5
7   Rested.  
8 GWS A power of trouble with Cameron and had to be moved to Lobb. Nightmare first half as five goals kicked on him but fought it out. 3
9 Haw Conceded three to Sicily in first half. After impressing on arrival, now enduring a nightmare spell. 3
10   Bye.  
11 VFL Improved as the game wore on down back and was solid when it mattered late.
12 VFL Had better days. Will look to bounce back in coming weeks.
13   Bye.  
14 VFL Held up well in the back half and won a bit of his own footy.
15 VFL Part of a defence that kept the Dogs at arms length. Had 18 touches too.
16 VFL Strong game in defence to help keep the Cats at bay.
17 VFL A shell of the player he was at the start of the year. Poor defensively and spot on list suddenly seems in question.
18 VFL Better than last week, which wasn't hard. Showed aggression in the last term to stand up for a teammate, but it didn't kill that contest.
19   Concussion.  
20 VFL Okay game in defence to help keep the Bees at bay.
21   Hamstring.  
22   Hamstring.  
23   Hamstring.
