2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GWS Totally blanketed Jonathon Patton out of the game. 6
2 Haw Went to Gunston and did that job really well. Able to get in the way of many Hawthorn forward thrusts. 6
3 Port Don Pyke surprised everyone by putting him on Robbie Gray and it worked. 7
4 Ess Great dual with Joe Daniher, kept him to two goals. Getting better with each game he plays. 6
5 GCS Moved onto Lynch when Talia was forced off and was OK. 5
6 Rich Had the unenviable task of lining up one on one with Martin out of the goal square, despite conceding one goal held his own. 6
7 NM Torched by Waite. Horror outing and couldn’t do anything right. 2
8 Melb Had a nightmare in defence and couldn’t contain Cam Pedersen when he rested forward. 4
9 Bris Not overworked. Equal lowest disposal stats (nine) for the Crows. 4
10 Frem Put the clamps on Shane Kersten and pushed forward for three inside-50’s. 6
11 Geel Started on Taylor then moved to Hawkins. Did that job pretty well but did make a few mistakes in spoiling. 5
12 StK Blanketed Tim Membrey out of the game. 6
13   Bye.  
14 Haw Decision making poor on occasions, needs to read the play better when teammate is in a better position. 4
15 Carl Went off with a hamstring injury late in the third term, didn’t have a great impact on proceedings prior to the injury. 3
16   Hamstring.  
17   Hamstring.  
18   Hamstring.  
19 SANFL Jagged his hamstring in the opening minutes before spending most of the afternoon sitting on the bench.
20   Hamstring.  
21   Hamstring.  
22 SANFL Had his hands full with Wundke but his intercept marking was pleasing to watch.
23 WCE Fantastic effort in some crucial contests against Kennedy. Kept him to one goal. 8
QF GWS Tasked with tracking Cameron until the Giant’s night ended at half time. One percenters huge in the back half. 7
PF Geel Got the Hymie from Get Smart look going but played it well. Did his job. 4
GF Rich Decision-making and skill level let him down enough to hurt his impact. In the end was a liability to the team. 2

2016 Season

1 SANFL Influential second half on defensive last line.
2 Port Made the most of his return to the side and part of a great team defence. 5
3 Rich Had the task on Vickery and did fairly well overall. 5
4 Syd Getting better with each game, his confidence is lifting as he realises he belongs. 5
5 Haw Started on Gunston and did job effectively. Solid. 5
6 Frem Getting better with each game, could be in trouble with a high hit on Walters. 6
7 WB Battled against Redpath for the most part. Still finding feet as a defender. 4
8 Geel Did the job on Stanley, restricting him to one goal. 5
9 GCS Played on Wright for the most part who kept him honest. 4
10 GWS Had the job on Lobb when he drifted into the defensive 50. 5
11 StK Kept Nick Riewoldt to one goal. 6
12 WCE Good job on Darling. Competed strongly. 6
14 NM Had his hands full with Ben Brown, and was OK. 5
15 Melb Went Hogan and able to nullify him reasonably effectively. 5
16 Carl Took Walker for long periods and had him covered. Steady without starring. 5
17 Coll Had a turn on each of the Collingwood tall forwards and was impressive. 6
18 Geel Had Menzel at times and found him pretty slippery. Offered little offensively. 3
19 Ess Thrown forward in the second half and was rewarded with his first ever AFL goal. 5
20 Bris Back to defence this week and nullified Lester’s impact. 6
21 Frem Held firm in defence. Did a job. 5
22 Port Doesn’t get the credit he deserves, unlucky to have given away three free kicks. 5
23 WCE Great tussle with Darling, with the Eagle getting the honours in the end. 5
EF NM Took Petrie to the cleaners but reported for tripping Thomas. 6
SF Syd Did a pretty good job on Franklin after he had to go to him when Talia went off. 6

2015 Season

1 NM Great confidence booster keeping Waite goalless. 7
2 Coll Worked well in tandem with Talia. Looks to have cemented a spot down back. 7
3 Melb His disposal efficiency is a concern for the coaching staff. 4
4 WB Stringer burnt him off early and he was shifted. 3
5 SANFL Didn't do enough in defence to earn an AFL recall.
6 SANFL Two kicks, three handballs, six frees conceded. A shocker.
7   Suspended.  
8 SANFL Bye.
9 SANFL Solid at full-back, probably broke even with Retzlaff.
10 Carl Pretty solid for most part on Casboult apart from third term. 4
12 Haw His best game for the club, won many one-on-one battles. 6
13 Bris Hardly sighted down back. 3
15 WCE Pretty solid defensive game under an avalanche of inside 50s. 5
16 Port Started off on Westhoff but switched to Schulz after Talia’s injury. 5
17 GCS Tough day at the office standing the imposing Dixon. 4
18 Syd Went to Tippett after quarter time when the Swan was in forward line. 4
19 Rich Struggled at times but did keep Vickery to one goal. 5
20 Ess Took Hooker who caused him a couple of problems early. 3
21 Bris Stood tall on West forcing his substitution. 6
22 WCE Great job curbing the influence of Darling. 6
23 Geel Did well on Menzel but Walker kicked three on him in second half. 4
EF WB Started on Redpath. Solid defensive game. 6
SF Haw Picked up resting Hale or McEvoy. OK. 5

9 Coll Apart for a costly turnover early had the better of White. 6
