2017 Digest:   Hulking forward looked sharp in pre-season. Every reason to suggest he can break 50-goal barrier for first time in career.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Adel Looks like he is carrying a hip injury and was held by Kyle Hartigan. 3
2   Hip.  
3 NEAFL Returned from injury and kicked two goals, but was always a threat inside-50.
4 Port The match-winner in attack with six goals. Proved to be too big and too strong for Clurey. 9
5 Syd Kicked one goal and tried hard but wasn’t a major factor in the game. 4
6 WB Cement hands happening on occasions but jagged three goals including ripping set-shot to give side lead in final term. Three goals. 6
7 StK Really well held by Brown and managed just one goal from six kicks. Workrate okay but couldn’t find the ball. 3
8 Coll Found himself the target of few entries and well held by Dunn early but two goals from strong marks were telling. 6
9 Rich Took some towering marks and although he was goalless continues to look every bit the part of a No.1 pick. 4
10 WCE Kicked two goals and took three contested marks. Gave them a presence. 6
11 Ess Pushed up the ground to get his footy and was held goalless by Hartley. Took eight marks. 5
12 Carl Kicked first goal in opening minutes and another in second term but for most part was well held by Jones. 4
13   Bye.  
14 Bris Broke away from Andrews to haul in 13 marks and four goals including one from 55m. Even had a successful stint in ruck. Huge. 9
15 Geel Giants’ most dangerous forward with four goals. Took a towering contested mark in final term then drew scores level. 8
16 Haw In red hot form. Five goals straight and 10 marks. His knee surgeon deserves a pat on the back 8
17 Syd Struggled to clunk them early, but two huge bombs from outside 50 saw him as a possible match winner. Faded late. 7
18 Rich Big man’s only goal came in final term when game was effectively done. Not great conditions for a marking forward. 3
19 Frem Played on Hamling for most of the day and the pair probably played out a draw. Not his best day but two goals were influential. 5
20   Hamstring.  
21 WB Three first-term goals had GWS on the back foot. Fourth goal came in final quarter. 6
22 WCE Floated in and out but at key stages late he was an important lead up target. 5
23 Geel Kicked first goal of the game and looked set for a big one but didn’t go on with it; 1.1 from 11 possessions. 5
QF Adel Aside from the odd mark, Talia was his master for much of the night. 4
SF WCE Two early misses, but then rectified it in third term. Imposing at times with his marking. 23 touches, 10 marks. 7
PF Rich Looked good in first half playing up the ground. One of the better players for the team. 6

2016 Season

1   Played in NEAFL trial against Sydney.  
2 Geel Inaccurate kicking a blemish but marked ball well and proved a handy inclusion. 4
3 Syd Beaten mostly by Richards, but did make the most of his limited chances. 3
4 Port Roamed around the forward line with a lot of confidence, taking nine marks. 4
5 StK Took a few strong marks but didn’t have kicking boots on. Will work on partnership with Cameron. 4
6 Haw Despite a favourable match-up on O’Brien, unable to get in on the party. 3
7 Frem Booted two goals but barely saw the ball. 4
8 GCS Always made a contest in the forward line and deserved his two goals. 5
9 WB Played mostly in the forward half, but also helped out in the backline and made good decisions by foot. 5
10 Adel Switched to defence in a strange move from Cameron. 5
11 Geel One goal but soundly beaten by Henderson/Lonergan. Five marks, seven kicks. 3
12 Syd Made to work by Laidler in front half. Presented hard for six marks (two contested). 4
13 Ess Well held all afternoon but did kick one brilliant set shot goal. Eight marks. 5
14 Carl OK up forward before spending most of the second half down back. 4
16 Coll Looked dominant in attack in first term then ball didn’t come down for two quarters. 5
17 Bris Too much for Lester and a real problem for the Lions until, like some of the others, the rain came. 6
18 Port One goal in the third term, conditions didn’t suit big forwards. 4
19 Rich Led well in forward half and up the ground. Kicked just the one behind. 4
20 GCS Looked strong in the air and booted two goals. 7
21 WCE Loomed large in attack at stages after booting first goal. Ended with two. 5
22 Frem Kicked half-a-dozen in a day to remember. Marked strongly and kicked accurately. 8
23 NM Took Firrito to the cleaners to end up with second bag of goals on the trot. 8
QF Syd Hardly had a sniff on Sydney lock-down expert Grundy. 2
PF WB Ended night with four goals in an outstanding effort in a tight game. 8

15 NEAFL Made return from knee injury. On after half time and OK.
16 NEAFL Monstered Leslie on way to a seven-goal haul. Ominous.
17 NEAFL Starred again in attack with five goals. Moved beautifully.
18 NEAFL Added another three goals to his hauls of five and seven.
19 Ess Despite good NEAFL form, looked rusty back at top level. Goalless. 3
20 Port Received the cheers from his coach and teammates after his first goal in a year. 3
21 Syd Ended with two goals and a sore hip. Can hold his head up. 5
22   Rested.  
23   Soreness.  

2014 Season

1 Syd Showed what a commanding force he will be up forward. 6
2 StK Kept out of game by Delaney and had minimal influence. 2
3 Melb Put his body in right places at contests and kicked a couple of goals. 4
4 WB Imposing effort without hitting the scoreboard that hard. Took 13 marks. 7
5 Adel Well held by Sam Shaw. 2
6 GCS Snagged an early goal before being deployed to defence. 6
7 Port The big key forward presented well and kicked two in the third term. 6
8 WCE Used at both ends after having no impact in attack. 3
10 Rich Minimal impact at both ends. Started forward then went to Riewoldt. 3
11 Haw Struggled until final term when clunked two marks. Missed a sitter though. 4
12 Ess On Hooker. The focal target with no Cameron and showed some signs at times. 5
13 Bris Marked strongly and had the slight edge over Maguire. 5
14 Carl Moving freely, he is starting to show why he was a No.1 draft pick. 6
15 Syd Lost his battle with Grundy. 5
16 Adel Did a few things. On Rutten initially then minded by Otten. 4
17   Groin.  
18 Geel Great battle against Taylor. Spent time in ruck as well. Two goals and nine marks 6
19 Rich Gave Rance a few headaches with his size and marking power. Ended with 2.3 6
20 NM Continued good form with two goals and spent more time in the ruck. 6
21 Melb Tragically tore ACL in second term. Put a major downer on the win. 2
22   Knee.  
23   Knee.  

2013 Season

1 Syd To end with three goals was a pretty good effort because Grundy beat him. 4
2 Port Big bloke was well contained by Trengove but still made a contribution. 4
3 StK Hurt knee when he went down in tackle in second term and subbed off. 2

2012 Season

4 NEAFL Rotated off the bench in his first match in seven months.
7 NEAFL Provided glimpses of why he was the number 1 pick.
8 NEAFL Got through another game and ran it out well.
10 NEAFL Nearing an AFL debut after being the Giants best.
12 Rich Much anticipated debut gave fans a glimpse of future glory. One nice goal. 4
13 Melb Body language not great and was physically shot it seemed before half time. 2
14 Syd Subbed out for the second straight game as he keeps working on his fitness. 3
15 Haw Kept being forced off the ground for treatment on a series of heavy knocks. 2
16 Adel Never stopped trying but received some heavy hits in a tough afternoon. 3
18 Coll Very quiet apart from a couple of nice contested marks before subbed out. 2
19 Port Limited by a non-existent pre-season, he is developing gradually. 3
