2017 Digest:   Career has stalled in the past two seasons after looking like being a future star. JLT form solid, but can go up a few gears.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Syd Still frustrates with decision-making but chimed in with a critical goal to stem the tide early in final term. 7
2 Frem Set the game up in the first term with his outside run and pin point passes. 6
3 Adel His run and carry were crucial when Port were on top early. 7
4 GWS Just 14 touches and tends to go missing when Port isn’t going as well. Needs to work on his consistency. 4
5 Carl Back to the form of 2013/2014, selfless running along the wings and hitting the scoreboard. 8
6 Bris Worked his way into the contest after a quiet first half. 6
7 WCE When he pumps the footy inside-50 something usually happens, back to the form of 2013/14. 7
8 GCS Port’s barometer through midfield. Continually broke the lines and won the ball at ground level. 7
9   Bye.  
10 Geel Great first half (18 disposals) while slowed up a tad he ended with 29, five tackles, three clearances and a goal. 8
11 Haw Dash and guile with ball in hand caused the Hawks no end of trouble in the first half then faded a tad. Seven inside-50s. 7
12 Ess Turned the footy over and a few defensive efforts were sub-standard 4
13 Bris Started well with his run and carry but faded out the longer the game went. 6
14   Hamstring.  
15 Rich Port’s best player in the first half but like a lot of his teammates faded when the game was willing. 7
16 WCE Worked into the game. Not as prominent as he’d have liked. 5
17 NM Big second term with six possessions, two tackles and a goal. Steady otherwise. 6
18 Melb Rolled off a wing and wasn’t a factor for long periods. Burst in and out when Port made a run. 4
19 StK Put his body on the line and had a strong first half and even better second half. 7
20 Adel Started well when the game was still a contest with some penetrating footy from halfback. 6
21 Coll When the Power play well Polec is front and centre, when they are under threat or pressure seems to disappear, a worrying trend. 6
22 WB Ran off a wing opposed to Dale initially. Finished with 23 touches and had some bursts in final term that were handy. 7
23 GCS Big goal from outside 50 in the third term when the rain of inside-50’s was embarrassing the Suns. 6
EF WCE 25 possessions, but would have expected him to be more clinical with touches at times. 6

2016 Season

1 StK Got better as the game progressed, will be better for the run. 5
2 Adel Struggling to adapt after missing the majority of the 2015 season. 1
3 Ess Harsh words from the coach was just what was needed to spark him back to form. 7
4 GWS Didn’t hurt the Giants with his disposal and found it tough to break open the game. 3
5 SANFL Classy effort in his first SANFL game. 28 touches, seven clearances.
6 Rich Used ball well linking between defence and attack to be Port’s best. Great signs. 8
7 Bris Running with the freedom of playing injury free. 7
8 Carl Started well with Curnow paying close attention. Drifted in and out in final three quarters. 5
9 WCE Lively, did his best to get the crowd involved with a goal in the last term. 7
10 Melb Normally a barometer for Port but had just 12 touches and no real impact. 3
11 Coll Steady game on a wing but some of his touches were very good. 6
12 WB Not hurting the opposition enough with ball in hand. 5
13 SANFL Laid game-high nine tackles in spirited response to AFL axe.
14 SANFL Bye.
15 SANFL Enjoyed the wide Elizabeth expanses. Easily won his wing.
16 SANFL Didn't chalk up big numbers but his tackling and pressure were good.
17 SANFL Damaging with two goals, seven inside 50s, six tackles.
18 GWS Costly turnover at the start of the last term led to consecutive Giants goals. 5
19 Bris Big second and third terms when massive win was set-up before slight fadeout. 7
20 Syd OK on a wing but six of his 20 touches were clangers. Needs to lift. 5
21 Melb Back to blistering best, pace was back and his willingness to take the game on. 8
22 Adel Seven inside-50s and a goal, is in excellent form. 7
23 GCS Used his raking left foot to break the lines. 5

2015 Season

1 Frem Had a big impact with his possessions. Had 29 touches and hurt Freo. 7
2 Syd Four inside-50s and five tackles, needed to get into the game more. 5
3 NM Unable to get link game going on outside and turned it over a bit. 5
4 Haw Two goals but subbed out in the last quarter. 5
5 Adel Surprisingly started as the sub, had little time to shine. 2

1 Carl Great debut. Had 24 disp (12 cont) and kicked a brilliant running goal late. 8
2 Adel His run and carry along with his breakneck speed is eye catching. 7
3 NM Spent most of match on wing but took a long time to influence a congested midfield. 4
4 Bris Kicked a wonderful goal with the outside of his left foot. 7
5 WCE Continues his strong start to the season with new club. Continually found space. 7
6 Geel Speed off a wing was a factor. Six inside-50s and 12 handball receives. 7

8 Frem His inside game made him stand out. Won six clearances. 6
10 Haw Great goal running through centre before unleashing from outside 50. 8

21 GCS Barely sighted and was subbed off. Stinker. 1
22 Carl His speed and movement around stoppages impressed. 7
