2017 Digest:   This guy is 5’8 in the old but plays at 6’1. Showed in opening LJT games how costly his absence was last season. Ankle niggle a worry.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1   Ankle.  
2   Ankle.  
4 StK Off the bench to full-forward line in return game but touched the footy only six times and missed his one set shot. 2
5 Ess Shaken off injury cobwebs; kicked Pies’ first two goals and looked the most likely forward. Boy, they’ve missed him! 6
6 Geel Great battle against Mackie. Ended with one goal from five kicks in a quiet sort of day. 4
7 Carl One handball in first quarter but increasingly involved as game progressed. His three goals gave Pies a sniff. 6
8 GWS Overhead prowess troubled Giants. Energetic presence a constant problem for Shaw. 6
9 Haw Improving by the week and clearly the most dangerous Magpie forward. 7
10 Bris Three first-half goals and another in the final term to end with four, along with four points. 8
11 Frem Booted three goals in the third term and then injured his ankle. 7
12   Ankle.  
13   Ankle.  
14   Ankle.  
15 Haw Might pay to spend less time worrying about his hair and worry about getting a kick. Mustered five and one goal for the day. 2
16 Ess Ended day with three goals which wasn’t a bad effort given beaten by some margin. Worked hard. 7
17 GCS Suns put plenty of defensive pressure on him, with Sexton keeping him to just one goal. 3
18 WCE Held closely all game but stepped up to be big in final term. 5
19 Adel Seven inside-50’s and goal, always looks dangerous inside the forward 50. 4
20 NM Worked higher up the ground to find the footy. Not a massive scoreboard influence, but was okay. 5
21 Port Kicked Collingwood’s first goal of the match and drifted in and out of the game too often to make an impact. 4
22 Geel Ended with 19 possessions (10 effective) but didn’t hit the scoreboard with Bews on his hammer. 6
23 Melb White-hot in first half and couldn’t do anything wrong. Had that many score involvements the statisticians lost count. 8

2015 Season

1 Bris A nuisance for Lions’ defence. His third quarter goal was the Magpies’ last. 5
2 Adel Well held by Brown who wore him like a glove. Couldn’t get dangerous. 4
3 StK Most dangerous Magpie. Great leap for dubious mark but always a menace. 7
4 Ess Baguley kept him on leash but contributed two goals. Attacked ball well. 5
5 Carl Incisive, resourceful and clever in attack. 7
6 Geel Fumbled ground balls early. Eight marks but no goals. Bews took points. 4
7 Rich Two goals and always a threatening presence forward of centre. 6
8 GCS Game-high five goals all in second half. Initially tagged before going forward. 7
9 NM The matchwinner in attack with five second half goals. Superb. 9
10 Melb Two first-half goals and ended with three in great battle with Jetta. 5
11 GWS Great battle with Shaw. Had some good touches in a ‘nearly’ day. 5
13 Frem Spurr wore him like a boiler suit. Two goals but kept in check. 5
14 Haw Closely marked by Stratton and was not his normal threat. 2
15 Port Much better second half, helped put Pies back in game in third term. 6
16   Back.  
17   Back.  
18 Melb Sub. Injected mid-way through the third term but had no impact. 3
19 Carl Lively in attack with Buckley his opponent. 6
20 Syd Most of his touches were won up the field and not overly damaging in attack. 6
21 Rich Rarely sighted with Morris on his tail for much of the game. One superb goal. 4
22 Geel Two goals, six marks and made a nuisance of himself all night. 6
23 Ess Buzzed around but was forced up the field to get a kick. One goal, one insode-50. 6

2014 Season

1 Frem Rarely in dangerous positions and made mistakes when he was. One goal, 13 disposals. 4
2 Syd The livewire forward was dangerous throughout. 7
3 Geel Three goals in final term en route to five for the match. Outstanding. 9
4 Rich Gave Morris some headaches with his movement and marking prowess. 6
5 NM Continues to elevate his play. Two goals, 10 contested possessions four inside-50s. 7
6 Ess Forced up the ground early in game but iced it late with sensational goal. 7
7 Carl Marked well, tackled strongly and ran hard. Finishing clinical again. 8
9 Adel L. Brown took him to the cleaners. 1
10 WCE Subdued by Bennell for three quarters then came to life with two late goals. 5
11 StK Well contained til three-quarter time then cut loose in a big way. 6
12 Melb Jetta his master pretty much all night. Only goal a result of a lucky free kick. 3
13 WB Kicked four goals, marked strongly and gave the Pies an edge in attack. 8
14 Haw No speccy this week, but lively around goals. 7
15 Carl Thrashed by Yarran and subbed off in third term with hamstring tightness. 1
16   Hamstring.  
17   Hamstring.  
18 Adel Not his night. Only four marks and one goal. Rarely threatening. 3
19 Port Grabbed nine marks and a key in first half to helping set tone. 6
20 WCE Worked hard but forced right up the ground to get involved. One goal. 6
21   Hamstring.  
22   Hamstring.  
23   Hamstring.  

2013 Season

1 NM Strong involvement in first half and maintained pressure on opponents. 5
2 Carl The match-winner with five goals up forward. Got to all the right spots. 8
3 Haw Hot form continued with three first-half goals. Then Stratton shut him out. 6
4 Rich Ended with one goal but should have kicked three or four. Took a hanger. 5
5 Ess Shoulder injury early and subdued throughout. One goal. 3
6 StK Lively at times. Crude Koschitzke elbow rattled his cage late in second term. 5
7 Frem Non factor up forward on a night when the Pies really needed more spark. 2
8 Geel Rose to challenge with three handy goals from half forward. 7
9 Syd McVeigh picked him up. Quiet overall. Finished with two strong marks and goals. 5
10 Bris Two goals and worked hard in the forward half all night. 6
11   Hamstring.  
12 WB Good honest game. 6
14 Port Took the mark of the night over three players – then kicked the goal. 5
15 Carl Nippy effort again highlighted by some creative work and tackling pressure. 7
16 Adel Hardly sighted in quiet night. 2
17 GCS Took a superb hanger but copped heavy knock in process and quiet thereafter. 4
18 GWS Sub. Kicked a goal after coming on but selfish on a few occasions. 2
19 Ess Early goal got him going and had three on the board by game’s end. 6
20 Syd Played well yet it could've been a monster game if not for 3.4 in front of goal. 6
21 Haw Just the one goal as a small forward, but did lay four tackles. Needed to lift. 3
22   Hamstring.  
23   Hamstring.  
EF Port Late inclusion for Lynch and took seven marks but ineffective until subbed off. 3

2012 Season

4 VFL Smart showing and used the ball well. Four goals.
5 VFL Made the most of his chances up forward. Lively game.
7 VFL Flashed in and out and played his role.
8 VFL A bit quiet in the midfield and up forward.
9 Adel Came on as the sub on his AFL debut and managed one kick in 22 minutes. 1
10 GCS Lively effort from the youngster netted three goals and five inside 50s. 7
11 Melb Unable to replicate effort of previous week and was rarely sighted. 2
13 WCE 12 kicks, four tackles, nine marks including several contested rippers late. 6
14 Frem Not a great deal of ball but 15 tackles will give sidelined forwards pause. 5
15 Carl Found the heat in the kitchen a little hot. Failed to stick tackles. 1
16 Geel One great mark and goal. Showcased his speed on another occasion. 4
17 Haw Certainly not the worst and will be a great learning experience – 10 marks. 5
18 GWS Ran riot on the wing, helping himself to eight marks and 2.2. 6
19 StK Clean hands and decisiveness around the ball handy. Laid team-high 9 tackles. 6
20 Syd A little down on form, failing to stand out in the forward line. 3
21 NM On and off ground with very little influence. Might be back to VFL now. 2
23 Ess Not prominent early, but came into it. 4
SF WCE Subbed on in final term for three touches. Game red hot when he got on. 1
PF Syd Sub came on third term. Couple of touches but little impact. 1
