2017 Digest:   Emerged at stages last year as a handy small who can play at either end. Uses the ball well but hasn’t featured in first two JLT matches.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

2 Coll Returned in the back pocket, picked up Broomhead and won the contest after conceding some early touches. 6
3 WCE Not his best. May be demoted to VFL next week. Ended with 11 touches. 2
4 Bris Started on bench. Was called on to shadow Zorko but to little effect. 5
5 Melb Just 10 touches and had to check at times if he was out there. Didn’t use ball as well as can do. 3
6 Adel Unsighted, lacked the run and carry of previous weeks. 3
7 WB Crucified with terrible deliberate out of bounds decision. Did a few nice things. 5
8 Frem Despite 16 possessions he had no impact on the flow of the game playing in defence. 3
9 GWS Got his fair share of footy in the back half and used it well. 6
10 Ess Running defender got pinged for deliberate rushed behind but did a fine job beating Green who did zilch. Pace good. 5
11 NM Dashed out of the back half at times. Didn’t star but played a role alongside the bigger key defenders. 5
12   Bye.  
13 Syd Stationed down back and was handy enough as a small back. Had five rebounds. 6
14 Carl Got going in second term in back half to be a decent distributor of the footy. 6
15 Port Kept the dangerous Jake Neade to one goal and bobbed up late in the game with a goal of his own. 6
16 StK Not the worst and tried hard in back half. 5
17 Bris Okay as a running defender. Had 19 touches, but turned a few over early on. 5
18 GWS Small defender was hardly sighted. Just seven possessions and three inside-50s. 3
19 VFL Played above VFL level. Elite with his ball use off halfback and even snuck forward and kicked a goal.
20 VFL Bye.
21 VFL Rebounded well at stages but kicking wasn’t as precise as normal.
22 VFL Set up the play off half back with his kicking and run.
23 VFL Didn’t kick the ball well, but got plenty of it on a wing.
QF VFL One of the Tigers best with his set up work and run out of defence.
SF VFL Given too much space at half back to set up play. 24 possessions and five inside 50s.
PF VFL Rebounded well, but Port cut down his space well at times. 17 possessions.
GF   Senior emergency.  

2016 Season

1   Played in VFL trial against Northern Blues.  
2 Coll Kicked three goals on debut as a small forward. Plenty to build on and took chances well. 6
3 Adel Couldn’t replicate his debut performance. 3
4 VFL Lively effort with 20 possessions and a goal after senior exposure.
5 VFL Goalless and didn’t have a big impact.
6 VFL Moved into the back half this week and won the ball well. Nice outing.
7 Haw On Howe. Good work ethic and shows some promise. 4
8 Syd Quiet night until injuring shoulder in the last quarter. 3
9 Frem Wasn’t a big factor on the night in windy conditions. 1
10 VFL In and out but not his best outing. 17 possessions in back half.
11 VFL Tried hard on a disappointing day for the Tigers. Five inside-50s, five rebounds.
12 GCS Used at half back to utilise his kicking skills and OK in that role. 5
14 Bris Used the ball well coming out of the back half to help set up attacks. 6
15 Port Six inside-50s and clever goal in the second term. 6
16 WB Played role of sweeper in defence and found a bit of the ball. Efficiency down. 5
17 Ess Continued growth down back but had hands full at times defensively. 6
18 Haw Made some blues out of the back half with skill and decision-making. 3
19 GWS OK in defensive half. Had 20 kicks and hit most of his targets by foot. 6
20 Coll Used as designated kick-in player and ok in that role. Used ball short a lot. 5
21 Geel Won some rebound ball in the half and released it well further afield. 6
22 StK Under siege down back and was hardly sighted as a rebounding option. 4
23 Syd Found it difficult generating drive out of back half. 3

2015 Season
