2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Haw Quieter night overall with just 11 touches, but still did a few handy things. 4
2 Bris Played well in patches. Kicked a goal in last quarter when needed. 5
3 Carl Fumbled his way through the day in what was a horror. Two kicks for the day. 1
4 Adel Two opportunist goals but hardly sighted, needs to do more to make his presence felt. 5
5 VFL Laid 11 tackles to ensure Collingwood never got any room to move. Add in 22 possessions and four clearances too.
6 VFL Tackled his heart out – 14 tackles to go with 20 possessions. Impressive workrate this season.
7   Rested.  
8 VFL Impressed with 21 touches, two goals and a handful of tackles. Playing good footy.
9 VFL Continues to grow in midfield role the longer he spends in there. Had 34 possessions and booted two goals.
10 VFL Did well in patches, but lacked consistent impact overall.
11 VFL A beast at the stoppages with 11 clearances to go with his 32 possessions. Relishing midfield time.
12 VFL One of the Bombers best again. 28 touches, nine clearances and five inside 50s. Super.
13   Bye.  
14 Syd Played forward after starring as a midfielder in VFL. Didn’t use the ball as well as he’d hope. 4
15 Bris Matched with Rich early as he spent more time in midfield. His game tailed off later. 5
16   Senior emergency.  
17 VFL A good game in the midfield. Had 26 touches and four goals. One "everything clicks" preseason away.
18 VFL Found a fair amount of the footy in the middle, but his disposals just didn't translate to anything.
19 VFL Another good day in midfield. Becoming a better contested player with 10 contested possessions and five tackles.
20 VFL Bye.
21 VFL Not as influential as he has been, but defensively work was good around the ball.
22 VFL Excellent outing with 30 possessions, eight marks. Bombers best.
23 VFL Won the ball fairly well, but ball use was below par.
EF    

2016 Season

1 GCS Showed some really good signs and booted a clever goal. 6
2 Melb Last-quarter goal proved vital and at times showed why he was a first-round draft pick. 5
3 Port Someone for Bomber fans to get enthused about, was good from few disposals. 6
4 Geel Didn’t get into the game to any great degree but all good experience for the future. 2
5 Coll Work-rate was good over the four quarters, finishing with six tackles and a goal. 5
6 Carl Got under the guard to grab 20 disposals, five inside-50s and four tackles. Handy. 6
7   Senior emergency.  
8 NM Great effort. Steady through the middle then went forward to kick two last-term goals. 6
9 StK Kicked one goal and missed sitter. Continues to be in developmental stage. 3
10 Rich Not his night but all part of learning curve. Made a few blues but did have six inside-50s. 3
11 Frem Wasn’t his night. A contested mark was his highlight. 4
12 Haw Not much of a say up forward but it’s all about getting games into him. 3
13 VFL Returned to VFL level and looked a cut above at times. Strong effort.
14 VFL Bye.
15 VFL Looked a cut above in all phases – 10 tackles to boot. Might get call up.
16 StK Operated mainly as a winger and had a solid, productive game. 5
17 Rich Off the pace and most early touches were either the wrong decision or a skill error. Still learning. 4
18 Bris Kicked a goal after half time siren and gave some lip, but still has a way to go at top level. 4
19 Adel Outpointed Talia for a late goal. 5
20 VFL Played some attacking footy and tried hard with 20 disposals and three inside-50s.
21   Senior emergency.  
22 WB In defence did a few handy things, but didn’t stand out. 3
23 Carl Three opportunist goals in arguably his most promising game for the club. 7

2015 Season

1    
2    
3 VFL Came to the fore in second half with 20 touches.
4 VFL What he did was good, but just didn’t do it enough.
5 StK Debutant who missed early shot for goal, but had some touches. 3
6   Senior emergency.

15 VFL Bye.

17 Port Showed capacity to kick long goals and is a nice prospect. 5
18 WB One goal but many of his efforts weren’t up to elite standard. 2
19 GWS Sub. On in third term and was only a bit-part player. 1
20 Adel Struggled to find the ball and subbed off in third term. 1
21   Senior emergency.  
22 VFL Big game with 25 touches and a goal. Impressive!
