2017 Digest:   Ankle injury has kept veteran defender on the sidelines and unlikely to be available until rounds 4/5. Bad blow for Suns.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

2 NEAFL Had 20 touches off half back and through midfield. Okay without starring.
3 Haw Slipped back nicely into Suns back six, and snuck forward to snag a goal. 7
4 Carl Strong night in the back half. Rebounded well and got the right position at the right time on a few occasions. 7
5 Adel Rotated between Betts and Cameron and did his best to attack from defence. 6
6 NM Never stopped working and using has anticipation from deep in defence and further up the field. 7
7 Geel Cats’ allowed him to dominate the game from behind the ball and he lapped it up to be a key player in the victory; 30 touches. 8
8 Port Gold Coast’s best in first half. Played with positivity, but had little support of movement to kick to. Tried hard. 7
9   Bye.  
10 Melb Gave good drive early on, but then was swamped by Dees in second half. 5
11 WCE Took the game on and always looked like a threat with ball in hand, going at 100% efficiency. 8
12   Suspended.  
13   Bye.  
14 StK Slotted straight back in after his enforced absence and was a continual force running from deep in defence and covering ground. 7
15 NM Strong in defence and looked to take the game on at every chance. 7
16 Syd Rohan had him in his back pocket all night, worst game of his season. 1
17 Coll Another who was not at his best with ball use, coughing it up coming out of defence. 4
18 WB Ability to rebound wasn’t where it normally is and the Suns were worse for it. 4
19 Rich Rioli got better of him early, but bounced back to be one of the better Suns performers. 6
20 Frem Did a good job on the small forwards. Didn’t get the chance to run off. 6
21 Bris Mopped-up well across half back and was on top of Zorko in first term. 6
22 Ess Kept quiet coming off half back and butchered the footy (41% efficiency). Not his night. 3
23 Port With the footy locked in their defensive 50 most of the match, Harbrow did his best to breakeven with his immediate opponent. 6

2016 Season

1 Ess Worked hard between the arcs, utilising his pace to break away from contest. 6
2 Frem Damaging from defence. He hurt Freo with his skill and pace. 7
3 Carl Allowed to roam free for majority of the evening but not too damaging. 5
4 Bris Lost out in his battle with Mayes. 5
5 NM Useful and helped out the defence when needed. 5
6 Geel One rebound and eight effective disposals not enough from an experienced leader. 2
7 Melb Made some great defensive tackles and looked far more lively than previous month. 7
8 GWS Underwhelming display with just two kicks for the game in defence. 3
9 Adel Well contained coming out of defence, lacked his usual zip. 4
10 WCE Tried hard despite the wave of West Coast inside-50s. 5
11 Syd Worked hard defensively and came into it well in second half. 6
12 Rich Tried hard but made a couple of mistakes down back. Not player he once was. 4
14 Haw Rebound from the defensive area strong and worked hard across four terms. 7
15 StK Zipped through the midfield and worked hard in attack and defence. 8
16 Bris Great rebound out of defence and attacked at every opportunity. 7
17 WB Honest contributor who provided a bit of drive out of backline. 4
18 Frem Rebounded off half back and made his 22 possessions count. 7
19 Melb Kept Garlett goalless and provided some great rebound to be among the best. 8
20 GWS Usual honest effort and rebounded from defence on six occasions. 6
21 Ess Standard rebounding back game. One of the few Suns to play with some urgency. 7
22 Coll Matched up on Blair and battled away. OK without being great. 5
23   Hand.  

2015 Season

1 Melb Must have got a rocket at half time and to his credit he responded. 6
2 StK Had 20 touches before shoulder injury forced him off at half time. 4
3   Shoulder.  
4   Shoulder.  
5 Bris Floated between midfield and defence and was solid. 6
6 Adel Ran hard all night but forward entries were sloppy. 6
7 WCE The conditions didn’t allow him to run and create. Had 12 disposals. 5
8 Coll Down on usual influence and turned over the ball far too much. 4
9 Haw Hardly noticed. 2
10 Syd Booted a long goal and was quite handy. 6
11 Frem Worked hard through the midfield and ran everywhere. 7
13 Carl Started well but drifted right out of the match when Blues got on top. 5
14   Ankle.  
15 WB Mostly subdued against former club. 4
16 GWS Good four-quarter effort. 5
17   Personal leave.  
18 WCE Hard running all night and found plenty of space. 8
19 Bris Played in patches but still effective. 5
20 Rich Looks flashy with what he does but not enough of it. Struggling. 4
21   Ankle.  
22   Knee.  
23   Knee.  

2014 Season

1 Rich Showed good zip in midfield and his creativity was important at times. 6
2 Frem Tackled OK and picked up touches at half back. 4
3 Bris Used his speed to break away from the stoppage and used the footy well. 7
4 Haw Kept going all game, ran hard at the ball and tried to be creative. 6
5 Melb Still short of his best. Three clearances and six tackles a highlight. 5
6 GWS Plenty of the footy including six inside 50s. 6
7 NM Mopped up well in defence and provided some zip through the middle of the ground. 7
9 StK Incisive kicking and running off half back. 7
10 WB Great rebound from defence all day and kept Dahlhaus quiet. 7
11 Adel His run and carry out of defence was a highlight. 7
12 Syd Tried to give some run and speed off half back and through the middle. 6
13 WCE Matched on Cripps . Not as prolific as usual, but important goal late. 5
14 Geel Ball use first class and was able to run and create for teammates all night. 8
15 Haw Lifted in second term but later got reported for unnecessary hit. 3
16 Coll Four-quarter contributor who kept demanding the footy. 7
17 WB Couldn’t provide customary energy and run from defence against old side. 4
18 Bris Less freedom than usually afforded him given Lions dominance. Kept going. 5
19 StK Well on top of Schneider. 5
20 Carl Drifted forward for two goals and provided some dash from defence. 6
21 Port Did well on White down back and pressed forward to hit the scoreboard. 6
22 Ess One of few Suns to produce even four-quarter effort. Ran hard and linked well. 7
23 WCE Won plenty of ball from the back half. Attacking game was right up his alley. 6

2013 Season

1 StK Prolific accumulator and runner off half back, 7
2 Syd The experienced defender shone for the Suns with his disposal and decision-making. 8
3 Bris Relishing the move into the midfield and his pace is a weapon. 7
4 Port Zip in the midfield is damaging and he’s managing to hit the scoreboard also. 7
5 GWS Had 10 touches in first term and constantly gathered ball and generated. 7
6 Frem Got the most possessions on the ground and ran hard all night. 8
7 Melb Tied down by McKenzie but able to break free in second half. 5
8 WB A little bit down on his season to date form, but still good. 6
9 Haw Not in it early, but then ticked over OK. 5
10 Geel Four rebound 50s, a goal and some darting runs a feature of a solid effort. 5
11 NM Plenty of zip through the middle and dangerous with the footy. 8
12 Ess Pushed forward to kick a goal and played a solid role in midfield. 6
14 Adel Disposal efficiency let him down but he ran hard all day. 6
15 Bris Racked-up 14 of his 20 disposals in first half then faded. 6
16 Rich Went head to head with Ellis and split the points. 6
17 Coll Another to put in a solid four quarters, and kicked a goal. 7
18 Carl Gathered a bit of the footy but his opponent had a much bigger influence. 5
19 WCE Every possession was telling and created moves. 6
20 Melb OK in parts but had flat patches. 5
21 Port Played on the wing and supplied four inside 50s with his run and carry. 5
22 NEAFL Bye.
23 GWS Tended to handball mostly, although did kick a couple of goals. 6

2012 Season

1 Adel Had one horrible turnover, otherwise a solid contributor in defence. 7
2 StK Had task on Milne and kept him goalless in first half. Battled after that. 5
3 Ess Another good performance and snuck forward to kick a goal. 7
4 Bris Was doing ok until he seriously hurt his elbow in second quarter. 3
15 Geel Dash from half back was good all match and among the best. Pace hurt Cats. 7
16 Rich Energetic all afternoon and kicked a vital late goal to give them hope. 7
17 Bris Typical dashing performance off half back. 6
18 Syd Continued his good season in milestone match. 7
19 Melb Only 5 disposals first half then got cracking but by then game was all over. 6
20 GWS Did not win as much footy as recently, but was efficient. 5
21 Haw Picked up Breust for a time. Ran well off the half back line but then tapered. 4
22 Carl A little wasteful with the footy. 4
23 Adel Lacked his usual drive coming from defence. 4
