2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 WCE Started on former teammate Petrie and generally took the resting ruckman.okay without starring. 6
2 Geel Chimed in with a few handy marks and was steady rather than spectacular. Not winning as much ball as he sometimes can. 4
3 GWS Torrid afternoon on Cameron but held up well in the aerial contests. 6
4 WB Defensively had Cloke covered and that was his main task. One great mark but quiet offensively. 3
5 Frem Silly downfield free kick cost the team late. 5
6 GCS Started in defence but made a difference when shifted to attack. Drive-by elbow on Miller a cause for concern. 5
7 Adel Rotated as a spare in back half with Thompson and Tarrant. Worked the angles well to halt Crows’ momentum. 6
8 Syd Started in attack and couldn’t hold marks early. Shifted out of attack later but that left a smallish forward line. 4
9 Melb Battled away in defence on a variety of players. Only eight touches so just a minor role. 3
10 Carl Made a howler in the third term but drifted forward and bobbed up with two super goals, including the sealer. 6
11 Rich Never a factor playing in defence. Not sure what his role is but he seems a little lost in the team at the moment. 3
12   Bye.  
13 StK Matched up on Membrey and lowered his colours overall. 4
14 VFL 14 possessions and four marks. Okay, but needs to lift to regain senior place.
15 VFL Okay without being at his absolute best.
16   Didn’t play for Werribee.  
17 VFL Gave very little playing both back and forward.
18   Hamstring.  
19 VFL Looked dangerous at both ends. Got a lot of the ball down back and went forward in second half after he twinged hamstring.
20 VFL Kicked three goals in first half, then was thrown into defence. Okay.
21 VFL Involved in a few firey incidents and had no impact on the game.
22 VFL Kicked a goal and did a few good things, but not a massive influence.
23 Bris First senior game for two months and marked well late in day. 4

19 VFL Copped a beauty of a shiner but soldiered on down back.
20 VFL Spent time in attack and defence and was handy as the extra defender.
21 Haw Solid game down back where he intercepted well. Six marks and 15 disposals. 7
22 Syd Did well as the loose man in defence. Made good decisions when he got it. 5
23 GWS Plus one in defence then had to go to Lobb after McMillan injury. Fair. 5
