2017 Digest:   Adds to midfield grunt; can do a negative job and also kick the odd goal. He’ll do well to stay part of this deep midfield. Hamstring issue a concern.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1   Hamstring.  
3 Syd Battled away in midfield and could have made Swans’ pay more on scoreboard, but missed chances. Fair. 6
4 StK Bustling type always appears to be straining to stay with the tempo. Ran with Montagna in parts. 4
5 Ess Came off the bench as part of mid rotation, went hard in the clinches but generated little drive. 3
6 Geel Tagged Selwood and had him covered in what was a huge win for the side given the skipper’s importance. 8
7 Carl Released from tagging duties after acclaimed job on Selwood the previous week. Murphy meanwhile had 30. 6
8 GWS Stood tight with Kelly and Shiel at stoppages but didn’t really stop either. Long day. 4
9 Haw What’s the point of playing this guy if he’s not tagging? Mitchell had it 51 times. 3
10 Bris Former Roo started well then faded out of the game after half time. Many of his 16 disposals came in opening 40 minutes. 5
11 Frem Looked sore all game. Played forward and gave them a target. 6
12 Melb Jagged two goals in first quarter then went missing high mountains style. Touched the ball eight times after quarter time. 4
13   Bye.  
14 Port Six disposals in first half then did lift to end with 18 but in the end a disappointing effort. 4
15 Haw Half forward/midfield performer was a disaster. Made decisions that had even those with lobotomies scratching their heads. 3
16 Ess Tagged Merrett and doing it okay until opted for crude elbow that floored the young Bomber; 13 disposals. 3
17   Suspended.  
18 WCE Provided blueprint on how to shut down Gaff. Stuck on him like superglue in wonderful tagging role. 7
19 Adel Stifled Rory Sloane out of the game in a well-disciplined tagging game. 7
20 NM Did a fantastic job tagging Higgins before getting injured right before halftime. Didn’t return. 4
21   Knee.  
22   Knee.  
23   Knee.

3 StK Lifted noticeably after half time (17 disposals). Four inside-50s and three clearances. 6
4 Melb Battled hard but things didn’t fall for him. No clearances and three inside-50s. 5
5 Ess Went to Zaharakis for long periods and probably edged him out with two goals. 6
6 WCE Started well but drifted out of the match. 5
7 Carl Plodded along in midfield opposed to Murphy and resting in attack. 6
8 Bris Did little wrong in dominant Magpie midfield. 6
9 Geel Tagged Selwood and stuck to task brilliantly. Won the footy himself. 7
10 WB Had the crucial role on Bontempelli and totally locked him down in first half. 6
11 Port Unable to keep Port midfield opponents in check and ball use was wayward. 4
12 Melb Proving consistently inconsistent. Lifted slightly after half time when went to N Jones. 4
14 Frem Tagged Neale and kept him nailed down early but the Docker fought back. 5
15 Carl Ran with Gibbs and did a good job. Nine tackles was big. 7
16   Managed.  
17 Adel Tried to nullify Sloane, with some success, and pushed forward for a goal. 5
18 NM In the middle of action in combative first term. Tough hombre. 6
19 WCE Wasted some chances with poor finishing playing mostly as a forward. 4
20 Rich Horror night. Fumbled, butchered ball and had no impact. 3
21 WB Tagging role on the main danger Bontempelli early and was OK. 4
22 GCS Proved a handy goalkicking option pressing down from midfield. Just four contested possessions. 7
23 Haw Good second half where his work-rate and intensity were good. Two goals. 7
