2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 NM Quiet day at half back and on a wing. Could make way if Eagles look to make a change. 4
2 StK Still trying to establish himself in the team. Up and down. 3
3 Rich Main assignment was Butler and was beaten convincingly. 4
4 Syd Spent time on Hayward and had his hands full with the youngster. A few nervous nights await prior to selection. 4
5 Haw Had the job on Breust and gave him a bit too much room to move. Like many teammates, made a few blues. 4
6   Wrist.  
7   Wrist.  
8   Wrist.  
9 WAFL Slow start, but really came into the game late when it had to be won.
10 GWS Attacked the ball and the man strongly. An important developing defender. 6
11 GCS Needs to work on his defensive efforts- no tackles stood out. 4
12   Bye.  
13 Geel Youngster going okay until got injured and took very little part in the second half. 2

15   Hamstring.  
16   Hamstring.  
17 Frem Stuck to his task in defence and kept Fremantle’s small forwards under pressure. 5
18 Coll No impact from dashing half back. Spot in senior side in danger. 2

20 StK Rebounded a couple of times but not a factor. 3
21 Carl Didn’t have much of the ball in defence but worked hard. 4
22 WAFL Had his hands full all afternoon trying to keep tabs on Ninyette.

2 Carl Used at half back and did OK in second game. Not under pressure often. 3
3 Frem Did some nice things but will have learned a lot in heavy defeat. 4
4 Bris Low stat discounted his worth. Minded rested midfielders to good effect. 5
