2017 Digest:   Faces a fight to continue his career after an underwhelming start to life at his second club. A year in SANFL looms unless things change.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

3 SANFL Won his share of the footy but was disappointing by his standard.
4 SANFL Dynamic across half-back with 28 touches and plenty of influence in heart-stopping win.
5 SANFL Was superb across half-back with 28 possessions in massive win over North.
6 SANFL Ran the Crows ragged with 29 possessions. His ball use was better than previous matches.
7 SANFL Racked up 31 possessions and set up the play nicely from half-back.
8 SANFL Bye.
9 SANFL Had 25 touches in a typically workmanlike display.
10 SANFL Solid and reliable. Didn't do much wrong with his 21 touches.
11 Haw Late inclusion and good game to come in for given lop-sided result. Won a bit of ball and might have done enough to stay in. 6
12 Ess Was he out there? Seriously… A bit better in second half, but damage was done. 3
13 SANFL Found the pill 22 times but his efficiency and discipline were off.
14 SANFL Bye.
15 SANFL Tireless as ever. Worked the ball forward relentlessly with 25 disposals.
16 SANFL Sustained a head knock early before exiting the contest with concussion.
17 SANFL Showed no ill effects from previous week’s head knock. Picked up 19 touches and was solid if unspectacular.
18 SANFL Laid seven tackles but 16 disposals was less than expected. Needs to recapture his early-season form.
19   Bye.  
20 SANFL Was relatively well held by the Panthers. Not quite hitting his early-season heights at the moment.
21 SANFL Set up play nicely for Port, finishing with 31 possessions and 12 marks.
22 SANFL Solid day at the office with 22 possessions, although clearly outshone by a few of his teammates.
23 SANFL Set up the play nicely with 23 possessions but didn’t quite catch the eye.
EF SANFL Composed and tireless across half-back with 35 disposals against his old side.

2016 Season

1 SANFL Burrowed in for 25 possessions and looked good.
2 Adel First game for Power and was reasonable. One costly turnover set up Walker. 5
3 Ess Great response from the previous week, seven insdie-50s a highlight. 6
4 GWS Managed just 10 disposals and went missing after half time. 2
5 Geel Worked hard for team but not all of what he did came off. Couldn’t question effort. 5
6 Rich Off the pace early but ended with eight tackles to keep involved. 5
7 Bris His best game for Port Adelaide since transferring from Melbourne. 7
8   Senior emergency.  
9 SANFL Kicked two first-half goals and found plenty of the footy.
10 SANFL Bye.
11 SANFL Injured his ankle early before later returning and booting two goals.
12 SANFL Was one of Port's most damaging despite battling a pre-game virus.
13 SANFL Struggled to find the footy but still hurt South with eight tackles.
14 SANFL Bye.
15 SANFL Had the ball on a string with productive, running midfield display.
16 SANFL Again gathered plenty of the pill and consistently found space.
17 SANFL Provided link and run while finding plenty of the footy.
18 SANFL Bye.
19 Bris Late inclusion who never really got hot like the rest of his teammates. 4
20 SANFL Ran hard on the wing, kicked a goal and is improving his inside work.
21 SANFL Booted three goals and looked composed at all times.
22 Adel Grabbed his first goal in Power colours since being traded from the Demons. 4
23 SANFL Bye.
