2017 Digest:   A make or break year looms for the former Swan, whose first season back in the west was ordinary. Looks more settled now.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 NM Just the nine touches and a joe-the-goose goal. Eagles would want more out of him. 4
2 WAFL Dropped back to the WAFL (despite glue injury claims) and was okay without starring. 19 possessions and eight marks.
3 Rich Not damaging at all. 4
4 WAFL Won plenty of the ball on the outside and pressed claims for a recall in a heavy defeat.
5 WAFL Steady without starring in win. 19 possessions and four inside-50s for the Royals.
6 WAFL Drifted in and out of the game, but is a million miles off the player he was at times with the Swans.
7 WAFL Bye.
8 WAFL Missed a couple of shots for goal, but was a handy contributor on the day.
9 WAFL One of his best outings in a while Strong late when the game was on the line. 10 inside 50s.
10 GWS His best game for the club. Ran, worked, won the ball 28 times and kicked two goals. 7
11 GCS Quite good for the most part, and booted a goal to get things started in the last quarter. 7
12   Bye.  
13 Geel Found some form with 20 possessions, two goals and a good workrate. Importantly hit targets with his touches. 7
14 Melb His kicking is vital. Would like his set shot again in the final term. 6
15 WB Provided some drive out of defence and disposal efficiency (12 of 16 hit target) better than most. 5
16 Port West Coast need him with the ball in his hands and 12 disposals wasn’t enough. 4
17 Frem Didn’t have his usual run and his kicking game wasn’t prominent. 4
18 Coll Little defensive effort…almost plays too cool on the field. 4
19   Calf.  
20   Calf.  
21 Carl The Eagles needed more of his break away speed. Only 15 touches. 5
22 GWS Missing person notice posted for him at halftime, but worked his way into it. Needs to use his pace more often. 3
23 Adel His final term was outstanding. The key reason why the Eagles held on to play finals. 7
EF Port Work off back of square in extra time was telling. Just fair before that. 5
SF GWS The SES were readying a search party until he made one run down the wing. Part of the problem for the Eagles list managers. 2

2016 Season

1   Calf.  
2 Haw Another poor outing on the MCG. Hardly saw it, and when he did kicked it horribly. 1
3 Frem Showed why he was recruited with two goals. His work in attack was good. 6
4 Rich Took another step forward. His fitness is improving and he kicked a goal. 5
5 Syd Ordinary day against old team and a shocker miss was greeted with delight. 3
6 Coll Barely touched the footy. 2
7 Geel Horrible. Has to be playing WAFL this week. Six effective disposals. 1
8 WAFL Plenty of the ball with 29 disposals but wasteful highlighted by three behinds.
9 WAFL Struggled in the stormy conditions for just 13 touches.
10 GCS Had some good running moments that contributed to the team’s scoring. 4
11 WAFL Couldn’t get into the game on a wing after coming on at quarter time.
12 WAFL Bye.
13 Bris Played his role on a wing and outpointed Bewick. 6
15 Ess Had some better signs. Still needs to break the lines and get more disposals. 5
16 NM Only nine touches and wasn’t in a position to win the footy enough. 3
17   Senior emergency.  
18 WAFL No impact again on the wing with 16 touches and outpointed by opponent.
19 WAFL Bye.
20 WAFL Better performance with 23 disposals and looked more engaged.
21 WAFL Better showing again finishing with 24 possessions.
22 Haw His best game this year. Aggressive and chased hard. 6
23 Adel Started strongly with a goal in the second term but faded quickly. 5

2015 Season

Played for : Sydney Swans

1 Ess On Goddard initially. Slippery conditions didn’t suit defender’s game at all. 4
2 Port His speed and spread caused the Power many headaches. 7
3 GWS Kicked a key goal to halt GWS momentum and dangerous at times. 6
4 Frem Kicked one goal but really quiet. 3
5 WB Five inside-50s and ball use pretty good in tough conditions. 6
6 Melb Unbelievable snap goal from outside 50 thrilled fans. Created all night. 7
7 Geel Gave some great drive off a wing and troubled the Cats throughout. 7
8 Haw Flitted in and out of game. Key chase and tackle would have pleased coach. 6
9 Carl Had it 16 times in the first half to be a damaging player then kept it going. 8
10 GCS Set up plenty of attack with incisive running out of defence. 7
11 NM Field kicking brilliant and set up teammates for scoring opportunities. 8
13 Rich Started well linking up and kicking long, but he drifted out. 5
14 Port Found space off a wing and kicked critical goal midway through final term. 6
15 Bris Six effective disposals and a goal in first half. Not his best game but found space. 6
16 Haw Not a game for outside receivers but chimed in when he could. 5
17 WCE Got a lot of his touches deep in defence. Did not have an inside-50. One goal. 5
18 Adel Opening goal went to the script and was effective. 5
19 Geel Huge first half (15 disposals, two goals) then struggled when not fed the ball. 6
20 Coll Matched on Sidebottom and showed trademark pace and run. 5
21 GWS Just 11 touches but Swans will be happy with his seven tackles. 4
22 StK Brilliant opening goal but not a major factor after that. 4
23 GCS Sub. On to start second term replacing Jack. Didn’t extend himself overly. 5
QF Frem Only 11 disposals in the first three quarters then lifted in final term. 5
SF NM Tagged by Gibson and zero impact. Subbed out at three-quarter time. 1

2014 Season

Played for : Sydney Swans

1 GWS Broke clear occasionally but not a major influence. 4
2 Coll One of his better games in recent memory in an encouraging display. 7
3 Adel Used the afterburners to torch his opponents on many occasions. 6
4 NM Threatened but never able to break free in a frustrating game. 5
5 Frem Steadily building his form, producing seven inside-50s and a goal. 6
6 Melb Run and carry a feature early then slowed by a calf injury. 6
7 Bris Used his speed to great effect and wasted opportunities in front of goal. 6
8 Haw Found space off a wing and a key player linking defence and attack. 7
9 Ess Long kicking a feature and played a strong role with his improved workrate. 6
11 Geel One of few Swans to not overly impact game. One goal from limited touches. 4
12 GCS Glided along the wing and pushed forward to kick two handy majors. 6
13 Port Gave run as usual and kicked a goal to do his bit. 5
14 Rich Provided outside run and drove the ball inside 50 six times. Solid. 6
15 GWS As he has been for much of this year, he was solid but unspectacular. 5
16 WCE Provided good outside run on a wet, wintery Perth afternoon. 6
17 Carl His form has been building, but a little down on his recent form. 5
18 Haw Got the better of his speed duel with Hill on a wing. Drove the ball forward well. 7
19 Ess Rolled ankle before half time but kept going and added zip. 5
20 Port Six inside-50s, three clearances and four crunching tackles. 6
21 StK Not a big day but was handy. 4
22 WB Brilliant early goal and attacked ball hard. Pace on the outside exciting. 6
23 Rich Some decent moments but seven clangers demonstrated his troubles. 5
QF Frem Damaging with his run through the midfield. Hurt the Dockers. 7
PF NM One goal but generally quiet. Only two inside-50s. Will need to lift on Saturday. 4
GF Haw Will never want to see game again. Copped hit to head early from McEvoy. 1

2013 Season

Played for : Sydney Swans

1 GWS Not sighted all day off a wing and will want to improve quickly on that. 4
2 GCS Made a step up from previous week. 5
3 NM Showed glimpses late in game but needs to regain last year’s form. 3
4 Geel Did not impact the game whatsoever – disappointing. 2
5 StK Sub after slow start to year. Came on and was keen to show pace. 2
6 Bris Kicked two special goals to add the cherry to the pie. Much better. 7
7 Haw Head-to-head with Hill most of the night. Didn’t hot the scoreboard. 5
8 Frem Floated in and out of the game, but his confidence is on the rise. 6
9 Coll Brilliant running goal in third quarter. Getting back towards his best. 6
10 Ess Melksham held him early but he fought back and contributed. 5
11   Shin.  
12   Shin.  
13   Shin.

23 NEAFL Worked into the game well and was a strong performer by the end.
QF Haw Sub came on in third and kicked goal from handball in square. Needed run. 2
SF Carl Sub. On early to replace Tippett and kicked a goal. Couple of darting runs a positive. 4
PF Frem Kicked first goal then was hardly sighted for rest of the night – 4 effective disposals. 1

2012 Season

Played for : Sydney Swans

1 GWS His speed and run stood out. Among the best with 20 touches. 7
2 Frem Used his pace to perfection and capped off good work with three goals. 7
3 Port His pace was electrifying at times as he ran in kicking three goals. 7
4 NM Used pace and guile to kick three superb goals. Getting better and better. 7
5 Haw Got away a few times without big scoring impact. 4
6 Adel His best game for the Swans and was a constant menace with his pace. 7
7 Rich Very lively in the first half but faded out of the game. 5
8 Melb Lightning pace constantly had Demons on alert and one long goal was a gem. 7
9 StK Occasional bursts were threatening. 4
10 WB Kicked a career-high four goals, including two contenders for goal of the year. 7
11 Ess His pace worried Dons all night. 7
13 Geel Kicked a great running goal but not a huge factor thereafter – four inside-50s. 5
14 GWS Kicked three more goals to take his tally to 31 for the season. 7
15 Bris Didn’t quite break free but kicked another goal to take his tally to 32. 5
16 WCE Classy game. Kicked four goals and several were magic. 8
17 StK Kept on a tight leash by Jones but made occasional incisive moves. 4
18 GCS Reasonably well contained, finishing with just the one goal. 4
19 Carl Great bursts of pace created moves. 6
20 Coll Couldn’t quite generate usual impact on the scoreboard, well held by Toovey. 5
21 WB Tagged by Picken and not his most effective outing – one great goal a highlight. 4
22 Haw Had five inside-50s but limited disposals meant limited impact. 4
23 Geel Four inside-50s but that was about it. Didn’t worry Cats at all. 3
QF Adel Nice mix contained two goals and some great bursts of pace. 5
PF Coll Three-bounce goal first term a highlight and a nuisance all night – 3 goals. 7
GF Haw Got off the chain to set up two goals in first half. Quiet late but good cameos. 5
