2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

2 Ess Responsible for Hooker who kicked two goals. More effective than raw stats suggest. 5
3 StK Copped a head knock early, but did a good job on McCartin when the Saint was on the field. 6
4 NEAFL Had 11 touches and competed hard but didn’t do enough to warrant a recall.
5 NEAFL 10 touches in defence and competed solidly with the ball in the air and on the deck.
6 NEAFL Bye.
7 NEAFL Struggled down back. Has to lift to make a return to the senior lineup.

11   Concussion.

16 NEAFL Threw his weight around early. Then was off the ground at stages.
17 NEAFL Bye.
18 NEAFL Nothing special from the former Magpie. Hard to see him cracking back into the senior side. Positive was 100% kicking efficiency.

21   Concussion.

17 Ess Lined up on Daniher. Had some trouble with some of his leads. 4
