2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Ess Struggled to make any real impact in a number of roles. 3
3   Senior emergency.  
4 Geel Quiet early then did show a small spark up forward in second half when side was getting smashed potatoes style. Two goals. 5
5 WCE Lively start at half forward and gave Hawks some real energy in the contests. Corked thigh in third term but seemed okay. 6
6 StK Unsighted early other than nice mark on wing. Went back at stages too. Late goal, but needs to find consistency. 3
7 Melb Used across half forward. Flitted in and out of the game but in the end had very little influence. 2
8 VFL Poor start but was a touch better late. Still needs to get better to earn a recall.
9 Coll Late inclusion after a month in the VFL joined the first-half party with three goals, but kept in check thereafter. 5
10 Syd Snagged a goal and did a few good things, but teases more than a King St dancer at times. 5
11 Port Half forward not a great place to be when inside-50 count runs at x-x. As a result he touched the pill 11 times. Two goals. 4
12 GCS Floated in and out of the game. Looked better when he was coming from behind the ball rather than approaching it from forward. 4
13   Bye.  
14 Adel Was colossal in defence taking 10 marks thwarting many Crows attacks. 7
15 Coll Played down back again (on Fasolo) at times. Looking more comfortable by the week as a defender. Long-term home? 7
16 GWS 22 disposals, seven marks and gave some lip. Among Hawthorn’s best. Even performance across the afternoon. 7
17 Geel Down back again and was going well until injured third term. Returned to give what he could. 5
18 Frem Fantastic game in defence with four contested marks. Had a strange argument with teammates too. 7
19 Syd Brilliant game down back with 28 disposals, 88% of them to advantage. 14 marks to boot. 8
20 Rich Rebounded like the bed springs on a Spaniards honeymoon. Ended with 28 disposals in a handy performance. 7
21 NM Foot skills exemplary and read the play beautifully. 11 Marks, but also did the tough things for the team. 7
22 Carl Was targeted by the Blues and didn’t handle it well. Gave away plenty of free kicks which proved costly. 3
23 WB Antagonistic bugger who kicked one great goal and was steady from half-back throughout. 8

2016 Season

1 Geel Only two touches in the first hour and didn’t get much better in second half. 2
2 WCE Missed a few sitters but ended with four goals. Impressive in the air. 7
3 WB Held his nerve with three crunch goals in the last term. 6
4 StK Dempster tracked him closely, but got away for two goals and attacked ball well in air. 5
5 Adel Managed two goals and looked lively but generally well held. 4
6 GWS Frozen out in forward 50 and had a tough night. 3
7 Rich Matched up with Morris. Horrible turnover in second term, but brilliant goal at end. 5
8 Frem Grabbed 10 marks but usage by foot was poor. 4
9 Syd Jumped high and tackled strongly early, but disappeared in second half. 3
10 Bris Worked his way into the game after a poor first half. 3
11 Melb Started back then went forward in third term. Minimal impact overall. 3
13 NM Pivotal to Hawk turnaround and third quarter helped turn match. Five goals. 7
14 GCS Two first-half goals from strong marks and three for the game. Dead-eye Dick. 6
16 Port One of the best six-disposal games ever had, in the opponent’s face all game. 5
17 Syd Found going tough on Grundy. Two marks and no goals. Great learning tool. 2
18 Rich Made most of limited chances to kick three goals from seven kicks. 6
19 Carl Continues to grow in stature at both ends of the ground. Provides some spunk. 6
20 Melb Frost and others had his measure in a battling display. No goals and three marks. 3
21   Suspended.  
22 WCE Booted two goals but only took two marks. 5
23 Coll One final-term goals but well held for most of the day. Three marks. 4
QF   Ill.  
SF WB Early goal but failed to find the footy up forward. Six marks, six kicks. 3
