2017 Digest:   Form patchy last year and faces a race against the clock to be fit for the opener after a hamstring injury against the Bulldogs.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 StK Signalled early that he would be dangerous around goals and pace worried Saints. 5
2 Carl Booted three goals against his former club to be one of the game-breakers. Chase down on Docherty and goal one for highlight reel. 7
3 Geel One goal but was pretty well held by Mackie in a great battle for most of the contest. 3
4 Frem Kicked three goals and was always dangerous in attack and on the fly from high up the ground. Did his bit. 7
5 Rich Buzzed about in front half and was good in third term surge. Would like a re-do on a few of those late touches. 5
6 Ess Booted three goals to get the better of Baguley and get the Dees going in third term. Gave value for possessions. 6
7 Haw Couldn’t get away from Stratton early then jagged two goals in three minutes in third term. Ended match with three from 7 kicks. 5
8 Adel Burst into life in the second half with two goals and two goal assists. 6
9 NM Failed to kick a goal and was rarely sighted with Williams in his back pocket. 2
10 GCS The only Dee to play a four-quarter game. Ended with 5.4 and was the catalyst when things were going bad. 9
11   Bye.  
12 Coll Continually found space in forward half even when Pies got on top. Putting together a fine season. 7
13 WB Radar was off in front of the big sticks with 2.4 (including two posters) but was again at his lively best in attack. 6
14 WCE Quiet. Only four disposals. 3
15   Hamstring.  
16 Carl Small forward chimed in with three goals (from six kicks) in what was a handy effort given tight game. 6
17 Adel Missed a sitter early on, but was busy in the front half without hitting the scoreboard. Got up through midfield in spurts. 5
18 Port Caused headaches in attack – especially in the first half. Missed a few chances though and ended with 2.3 5
19 NM Kicked two into the wind in first term, but then missed a few gettable shots that proved costly. 6
20 GWS Unsighted for long periods in attack. Shaw never gave him an inch. 1
21 StK Quiet for long periods but came alive in the final term when the Dees needed. 4
22 Bris Booted two goals from just eight touches but applied some pressure in the front half. 5
23 Coll The one Demon who continued to get his hands on the ball in first half. Booted two goals, but poor effort late was costly. 6

2016 Season

1 GWS Struggled to get into the game early then had a run through middle. Better late. 5
2 Ess Only six touches, but at least looked lively and ended with two goals. 4
3   Ankle.  
4   Ankle.  
5 Rich Four goals and made Morris look second rate at times. Huge influence in the victory. 8
6 StK Controlled by Geary and never threatened to play a big part. 3
7 GCS Fairly well held though still bobbed up with a three goals. 5
8 WB Adcock/Morris kept him quiet for long periods. Two goals but rarely a factor. 3
9 Bris Waxed with Hogan in first half and could have booted more than two goals. Found space. 5
10 Port Byrne-Jones had his measure for much of the day. Just the one major. 3
11 Haw Would want to have all evidence of the game erased. A horror day in the front half. 1
12 VFL Just eight touches after being dropped, but wasn’t helped by Casey’s poor delivery.
13 VFL OK in patches. Kicking significantly let him down.
14 VFL Bye.
15 Adel Back in the team and back in form with four goals. Enjoyed finding space in Adelaide’s zone defence. 7
16 Frem Ball just didn’t really bounce his way despite good endeavour in front half. 3
17 StK Drifted out as the game wore on – much like rest of team. Ended with two goals. 3
18 WCE His three goals came from only nine touches. Made the most of his chances. 6
19 GCS Quiet for long periods but burst in and out when the Dees needed a few times. 4
20 Haw Couldn’t get into the game at all and ended with no goals and one tackle. 3
21 Port Two goals in the final term to put the icing on the cake. 6
22   Ill.  
23 Geel Two goals in final term added some respectability to a pretty ordinary game. 4

2015 Season

1 GCS The ignitor in attack and in stints in the middle. Good effort. 7
2 GWS Started well but like many others drifted from the game in second half. 3
3 Adel Two goals from six attempts in a performance of what ifs? 5
4 Rich Always dangerous in attack and two third-term goals gave Dees breathing space. 6
5 Frem Three first-half goals but then supply dried up. Goalkicking much improved. 7
6 Syd A spectator in first half then came alive after main break. 5
7 Haw Kicked three, should have had five. A rare winner. 6
8 WB Brilliant banana goal from the pocket in final term his only highlight. 4
9 Port Kicked two goals in the opening half but didn’t impact the game otherwise. 4
10 Coll Two electrifying goals in second term bought crowd alive. Not much else. 4
11 StK Barely sighted in attack apart from one freak boundary-side goal. 2
12 Geel Ended with four crucial goals to bounce back after a poor game last week. 7
14 WCE Worked hard in front half to keep ball in and had spurts in midfield. 5
15 Ess Lowered colours to Baguley but worked hard defensively with nine tackles. 6
16 Bris Lively in attack with two goals, but defensive pressure his highlight. 6
17 StK Webster restricted him and apart from one nice snap goal did nothing. 3
18 Coll Two first-half goals but had little impact in the second. 6
19 NM Well beaten by Wright and only one goal. Missed a costly mark in third term. 2
20 WB Ended with two goals and had a few bursts in middle. 4
21 Carl A spectator in the first half. Came alive in third term but that was it. 3
22 Frem Kicked two goals and laid six tackles. Did well. 6
23 GWS Dynamic with two first quarter goals but drifted from the game. 5

2014 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Port Early goal disallowed then well held til goal right at end. 2
2 Rich Not a big factor in 100th game. 3
3 Ess Might have to set GPS for VFL. One goal and zero inside-50s not enough. 2
4 VFL Goalless in the VFL after being dropped. Disinterested.
5 VFL Pushed higher up the ground, got involved more than recent weeks.
6 WCE Fantastic return with 3.1 and three score assists. Influential. 8
7 Coll Couldn’t get a sniff in first half and it didn’t get any better. 2
8 StK Sub. Thrown in for final term and produced a ripping goal late. 1
10 Adel Sub. Injected some life into the game late despite limited touches. 1
11 Bris Sub came on in second term and kicked two quick goals then another later. 5
12 Geel Solid first half (10 disp) then went right out of the game after main break. 4
13 VFL Ran through midfield in new role but was goalless.
14 VFL Slightly better than recent efforts but a long way from his best.
15 VFL Struggled again and career appears at the crossroads.
16 VFL Quiet until bursting to life with a huge final term. Two goals.
17 VFL Held to 13 touches by Warren and minimal impact.
18 VFL Just six touches on another dirty afternoon.
19 VFL Better than recent outings but still nowhere near his best.
20 VFL In and out but was a bit better than past few weeks.
21 VFL Ran through midfield and had some pep in his step. Better.
22 VFL Started well, but workrate dropped as the margin increased.

2013 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Did nothing until final term when kicked two goals in two minutes. 4
2 Coll Pace and crumbing skills a highlight. Three goals were all class. 7
3 Geel Kicked 1.3 but had just five effective disposals for night. Not enough. 3
4 WCE Came to life in second term and used his speed whenever he could. 7
5 Adel Snagged four goals and terrorised Adelaide’s defence with blistering speed. 7
6 Melb Ended with four opportunistic goals in another fruitful outing. 7
7 StK Workrate OK for his two goals but not what you’d call a huge influence. 6
8 Port Kicked four goals with uncanny goal sense. Having a good year. 6
9 Bris Bobbed up on occasions and should have done more than two goals. 6
10 GWS Constant threat at ground level and snagged four goals. Having a fine season. 7
11 Ess Denied a goal early but kept running and covered heaps of ground. Faded. 5
12 Haw Well held by Guerra/Duryea. Only three inside-50s and no goals in a poor night. 2
14 Syd Barely sighted for much of the night. Scoreless and just one inside-50. 2
15 Coll Kicked opening two goals then hardly sighted for the rest of the match. 4
16 StK Geary kept him under control most of the day but he bobbed up in junk time. 3
17 NM Mullett had him at the start then Atley. Came into it at the end. 5
18 GCS Missed several shots at goal to blot his performance. 4
19 Frem The best of the small forwards but missed crucial goal on the run in third term. 5
20 WB Goalless until tweaking a hammy and being subbed out. 2
21   Hamstring.  
22 VFL Kicked 1.3 and was crowed for room. Chased hard though.
23 Port Kicked two goals from three attempts. 6
EF Rich Couldn’t find the ball at all in first half. Better late and kicked killer goal. 5
SF Syd Hardly sighted and also had corked hip. 2

2012 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Not a big game but made his contribution in attack. 5
2 Bris Not seen in first half but pushed into middle and blitzed early third term. 6
3 Coll Didn’t create much in first half then bolted with three bounce goals. 6
4 Ess Rarely threatened the Blues defence. Only 11 touches and one goal. 3
5 Frem Kicked opening goal of first and third quarters which proved pivotal. 5
6 GWS Only goal came in final minutes as Power controlled him all day. 4
7 StK Had six inside 50s but no goals and no clearances. Just battled. 4
8 Adel Kicked three goals so for a small forward in a losing side he did his bit. 6
9 Melb Well held by Nicholson and didn’t kick a goal despite some chances. 3
10 Port Besides one goal and one long run along the member’s wing was unsighted. 3
11 Geel Enright trailed him for much of the night and goal drought continues. 3
12 WCE Form a huge concern. Kicked one goal but was never dangerous up forward. 2
14 Haw Sub. Came on at half time in attempt to lift side. 3
15 Coll Turned around a poor first half with a far better second to help the side. 5
16 NM On Bastinac. Couldn’t make an impact on game. 3
17 WB Two goals in second. Enjoyed combining with great mate Betts for second. 6
18 Rich Couple of better signs in first half 4
19 Syd Picked up by Shaw. Scatter gun kicking at times. 4
20 Bris Started slowly and made some mistakes but worked into it for three goals. 6
21 Ess Relished the myriad of opportunities that came his way. Dangerous with 3.2. 7
22 GCS Looked dangerous but just didn’t influence. 3
23 StK Kicking was way below his normal standard 3
