2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Syd Surname sounds like a dance move. Forced to play on taller Tippett and did that job superbly. 7
2 Frem Completely nullified Cam McCarthy out of the game. 7
3   Knee.  
4   Knee.  
5   Knee.  
6 Bris Solid in defence and rebounded well when it came his way. 5
7 WCE Cost his team a goal late in the third term with a terrible turnover kicking across gaols where Mark Le Cras duly accepted. 5
8 GCS Followed Wright and kept him very quiet. Long left boot important rebounding from defence. 6
9   Bye.  
10 Geel Had job on Hawkins and despite being under-sized did the job pretty well given he kept him to one goal. 6
11 Haw Never under any pressure given pressure up the field shielded him from getting caught one-out. 4
12 Ess One of a few Port defenders towelled up. Had an absolute nightmare and couldn’t do anything right. 2
13 Bris Marked any ill directed kick which ventured into the Power backline. 6
14 Coll Had the job on Moore and was able to keep him out of the game until the final. Solid and steady. 6
15   Knee.  
16 WCE Defended well. Barely touched the ball though. 5
17 SANFL Responded to rare SANFL demotion with eight rebound 50s but with only eight touches, couldn’t quite snap his form slump.
18 SANFL Didn’t get a heap of it but didn’t put a foot wrong in defence either.
19 StK In trouble with the hard running Bruce early 4
20 Adel Pushed forward in the last term to kick his first AFL goal in his 84th game 3
21   Hip.  
22 SANFL Provided dash, rebound and smarts in Magpies backline as well as a swag of intercept marks.
23 SANFL Only eight touches, not enough to bang down the Power selection door. Has endured a chequered 2017.
EF   Hip.  

2016 Season

1 StK Held the champion Nick Riewoldt to just two goals. Good effort. 6
2 Adel First Jenkins then Walker had the better of him. 4
3 Ess Kept Brown goalless, that is all you can ask from your best defender. 6
4 GWS Even battle with Patton. Rebounded out the backline five times and took 14 marks. 5
5 Geel Hawkins monstered him at times and not equipped for that role. Held up OK given weight of ball against. 4
6 Rich Big task on Riewoldt and did a fine job to keep the Tiger mostly under wraps. 6
7 Bris Gave Schache a lesson of what to expect from key experienced defenders. 7
8 Carl Started in Casboult then went to Rowe when the Blue was injured. Competed hard in one-on-ones. 5
9 WCE Outgunned by Kennedy. 3
10 Melb Big job on Hogan and was let off the hook by the big Dee’s inaccuracy. 3
11   Hamstring.  
12   Hamstring.

5 Adel Great tussle with Lynch. 5
6 WCE Port’s best rebounding defender with six rebounds from defensive 50. 6
7 Bris Take credit for keeping McStay goalless. 6
8 Rich 12 marks in defence, reads the play as well as any defender. 7
9 Melb Drifted across defence well after Pedersen moved further up the ground. 6
10 WB Like Carlile, rotated between Minson and Boyd, rarely threatened. 6
11 Geel Had Walker covered then injured thigh in second half and that slowed him. 5
12 Carl Henderson troubled him at times but among the Power’s better defenders. 6
14 Syd Shaky at times one-on-one but did some good things in space from half back. 6
15 Coll Nullified Cloke. 7
16 Adel Just beaten by Walker with his three goals. 6
17 Ess Troubled by Hooker early, but made a good contest. 5

7 GWS Tried hard against his old team, including a team-high six one-percenters. 5
8 Frem His courage to take risks with the ball from defence crucial to the win. 6
10 Haw Had the tough job on Gunston and came off second best. 5
11 Melb Had his hands full with Pedersen. Took some nice marks but wasn’t a big factor. 4
12 StK Had the tough task marking Riewoldt and came off second best. 3
