2017 Digest:   Overlooked for the JLT series which isn’t a great sign when you’re 21 and into your third year. NEAFL start.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1    
2 NEAFL Took 13 marks and rebounded the ball expertly from defence.
3   Senior emergency.  
4 NEAFL Took 17 marks to go with his 31 possessions. One of the Lions best in the win.
5 WB Not his day down back. Made mistakes and managed just four effective touches in a disappointing display. 1
6 NEAFL Bye.
7 NEAFL Found a bit of the ball, but wasn’t as influential as he can be at this level.
8 NEAFL Worked into the game after a sluggish start to play a strong role.
9 NEAFL Worked hard down back to continually repel the Giants attacking thrusts.
10 NEAFL Did some good things in lopsided win.
11   Bye.  
12 NEAFL Mopped up well in the defensive 50. 22 possessions, four rebounds.
13   Senior emergency.  
14 NEAFL A handful all day at half forward. 13 marks among his 16 possessions and five goals.
15 NEAFL Booted three goals and was a handful in the air in attack.
16 NEAFL Kicked two goals and did some handy things, but wasn’t a star on the day.
17 NEAFL Bye.
18 NEAFL Fantastic performance up forward. Took 14 marks and booted three goals. Nice step forward for him.
19 NEAFL Was ok but not stellar. Just 11 touches and feels like a player that is too good for NEAFL but not good enough for AFL.
20 NEAFL Mopped up well enough in the back half. Played his part.
21 NEAFL Injured early on and played little part thereafter.
22 NEAFL Not his best outing, but handy in patches.
23 NEAFL Bye.

2016 Season

1   Played in NEAFL trial against Gold Coast.  
2 NEAFL Gave rebound at times but wasn’t able to stem the tide consistently.
3   Senior emergency  
4 GCS Big third quarter with 11 touches. Stood up when it counted. 7
5 WB Just five possessions in nearly 80 per cent game time. Unable to get going. 2
6 Syd Just the disposals yet did OK shadowing Papley and later Heeney. 4
7   Ill.  
8   Ill.  
9 NEAFL In and out of the game but did some good things. Plenty to work with.
10   Best afield in huge win with 17 touches, 12 marks and five goals.  
11 NEAFL Drove the ball forward well, but many were misguided or cut off.
12 NEAFL Didn’t impact game as he did last week, but slogged away for 19 possessions.
13 NEAFL Showed a willingness to compete. Clunked two impressive contested marks.
14 NEAFL In and out of the game for 17 disposals. Needs to do more.
15 NEAFL Bye.
16 NEAFL Worked hard defensively with nine tackles to go with 15 possessions.
17 NEAFL Contributed well in the midfield. Found space and tackled hard. Six clearances, five inside-50s.
18 Ess Chimed in with two goals in second half and showed a bit in the front half. 5
19 Port Third-quarter goal masked an average day out. Five of his nine disposals ineffective. 4
20 Adel Two rebound-50s and very little else. 3
21 NEAFL Bye.
22 NEAFL Worked hard across all four quarters. Laid a game-high 14 tackles.
23 StK Stats not big but showed some glimmers of talent early. 4

4   Ill.  
5 NEAFL One goal from nine touches. No real impact.
6 NEAFL Bye.

16 NEAFL One of the Lions’ few winners in defence. 27 touches.
17 NM One of many Lions who drifted in and out of the game. 5
18 Geel Did some good things down back and is one to persist with. 5
19 GCS Moderately effective in defence. 5
20 Carl Possibly the best of his seven games so far for the Lions. 6
21 Adel Just his eighth game and did enough to show he belongs at this level. 5
22 Haw Sub. On in third term and wasn’t a big contributor. 2
23 WB Got seven of his 12 disposals in third term. Otherwise relatively quiet. 5
