2017 Digest:   Veteran small forward has got through another summer. Form in JLT been so-so but is fit and ready to attack the season.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 WCE Worked hard defensively in front half, but is paid to kick goals and he missed a few he should gobble up. 4
2 Geel Two goals from limited opportunities and for the most part he was well held by Mackie. 4
3 GWS Found it hard to shake clear of Shaw although kept himself in the game somewhat with pressure efforts. 4
4 WB Horror day hit rock bottom when his flying shot to win game in final five seconds missed. Not a 200th to remember. 2
5 Frem Quiet. Only six touches and not score. 3
6 VFL Proved to be one of the differences for the Tigers with four goals in win over Essendon.
7 VFL Came to the fore in the final term in attack, but will be sidelined for a while after being booked for a crude bump.
8   Suspended.  
9   Suspended.  
10   Suspended.  
11   Suspended.  
12   Suspended.  
13 VFL Kicked two and had an impact, but looks set for another suspension.
14   Suspended.  
15 GCS Late inclusion and appeared to struggle with the tempo of the match. Swung between attack and defence. 3
16 Frem Used off half back – mostly opposed to Tucker. Worth persisting with as he was okay. 6
17 Port Playing as a defender since his return to the seniors, reads the drop of the footy well but he fumbled the footy too often. 4
18 VFL Lively throughout the day, providing plenty of chances despite the tough conditions. Two goals, three behinds.
19 VFL Did little team things in the first half and showed he was a class above in second half. Got to the right spots at the right time.
20 VFL Lacked impact overall with just eight touches and a couple of behinds.
21 VFL On fire early with three goals, then wasn’t at his best. Finished with 3.4.
22 VFL His only goal was a cracker. In and out of the game though.
23 Bris In a possible career crossroads game he booted three goals and did his bit. 5

2016 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Adel Touched ball four times after appearing to injured shoulder in second term. 4
2 Bris Mixed bag up forward and booted two goals. 5
3 Melb Missed one sitter but made match-saving spoil deep in defence to deny a certain Stretch mark. 4
4 Frem Kicked the first goal of the night, but then was a mere spectator. Got under Dockers’ skin a few times. 3
5 GCS Well held for the most part but managed to boot two goals. 4
6 WB Didn’t have much of an impact in attack. 3
7   Suspended.  
8 Ess One goal but failed to impress. Faded like a 1970s pair of jeans after half time. 3
9 Carl Missed a few shots for goal but ended with three to be leading goalscorer on ground. 7
10 Syd Kicked side’s first three goals then touched the ball three times after half time. 5
11 Rich Kicked a couple of goals and should have had a third after week when spotlighted. 5
12 Geel One goal but for most part contained by Kolodjashnij. 4
13 Haw Volatile mix of brilliant goals and concession of ill-disciplined 50m penalties. 6
14 Adel Made up for a poor first term with three goals for the remainder of the match. 6
16 WCE His two goals came in the final term when the result was decided. 3
17 Port Kicked three goals and showed a good work-rate. 6
18 Coll Finished with five goals which was an excellent return. 7
19 StK Not a big night but nice gesture to hand Boomer a goal. 3
20 WB Matched on Johannissen. Couple of goals were handy, but not a big game. 4
21 Haw One goal from eight kicks but not a big factor in dangerous positions. 5
22 Syd Decent in patches up forward. Finished with 0.2. 4
23 GWS Shaw tracked him closely and unable to break free in front half. 4
EF Adel L Brown was able to quell his influence. Two goals and 10 kicks. 5

2015 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Adel Didn’t stop trying, produced two great goals. 6
2 Bris Goals at end of first and second quarters. Buzzing around. 5
3 Port Came alive in the final term with three team-lifting goals. 7
4 Geel Beaten by Bews. No goals and ended up playing for free kicks. 3
5 Haw Kicked two goals and was handy without starring in attack. 5
6 Rich Gave away a silly free kick and goal but buttered up with five of his own. 8
7 Ess Dragged down a screamer and booted two goals. Missed three gettable ones. 6
8 Frem Had a shocker. Just four touches and a goal from a lucky free kick. 3
9 Coll Roamed up the ground more to find the ball. One goal. 5
10 WCE One early goal. Staging for frees has become counter productive. 3
11 Syd Two goals were both fortuitous. Couldn’t get away from Smith/Rampe. 3
12 GWS Quiet afternoon despite North’s dominance. 3
14 GCS Played higher up the ground and failed to hit the scoreboard. 6
15 VFL Threatened but unable to hit scoreboard hard with 1.3.
16 VFL Shadowed by Dalgleish but chipped in with two goals.
17 Bris Did ok for being subbed-in in third term. 4
18 Carl Dangerous at stages in attack and looked to be back in touch. 6
19 Melb Any time a small forward snaffles five goals it's been a productive afternoon. 8
20 StK Looked frustrated with only three touches to half time, then cut loose. 5
21 Frem On Spurr initially and unsighted first half. Things didn’t improve. 2
22   Foot.  
23   Foot.  
EF Rich Sub. Kicked a crucial goal, but also gave away a silly 50. Does he hold his place? 1
SF Syd Had the desired effect when he came on and kicked goal. 2
PF WCE Sub. Couple of touches, but dye was cast when he came on. 2

2014 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Ess Little forward took big marks and was only prominent forward. Four goals. 8
2 WB Frustrated by close checking of Picken. Silly free as Currie lining up for goal. 2
3 Port Three big goals and gave one away without getting great supply into the forward line. 7
4 Syd Drifted in and out of the game and finished with 1.2. 5
5 Coll Looked lively (at times) despite limited opportunities to end with two goals. 5
6 Frem Held to just one goal by Sutcliffe. Not a big factor. 3
7 GCS Started on the bench and never got into the flow of the game. 3
9 Bris Always a menace in front of goals. Accuracy no longer a concern. 6
10 Geel Three goals but Bews actually did a reasonable job quelling him. 5
11 WCE Subbed off at three quarter time due to hamstring after quiet day. 3
12   Hamstring.  
13 Adel Four goals from limited opportunities. 7
14 Melb Two goals but was pretty well held by Garland. Only one inside-50. 3
15 Bris Could not get into the game. Well held by Patful. 5
16 Haw Not a big night in attack 2
17 StK Had the better of Dempster but 2.4 was poor reward. 5
18 Carl With four goals made most of chances. Only dangerous Roo forward. 5
19 Geel Three goals but one was from a lucky free in which he took a dive. 5
20 GWS Held goalless but worked up the ground to get a bit of the ball. 4
21 WB Hurt knee in first quarter, but kept going. 4
22 Adel Only one goal and closely marked by Brown. 3
23   Knee.  
EF Ess Three goals, including two in third quarter revival, were pivotal. 6
SF Geel On Kelly, brilliant start with three-goal first term then quelled. 5
PF Syd Well held by Smith and a couple of his chasing attempt early were horrible. 3

1 Coll Brilliant with four goals to half time. Involved in incident with Reid and tapered. 5

3 Syd Kicked a couple of brilliant goals early, but Smith kept him in check. 4
4 Bris Lively display with four goals. 7
5 Haw Five goals from six kicks was a terrific achievement. 8
6 Port Posed a constant threat and booted two important goals. 5
7 WB Always posed a threat with three goals. 6
8 WCE Glass a surprise match-up on him and he never let the Roo get in game. 2
9 Adel Kicked five goals in opening three quarters. Only one kick in final term. 7
10 StK Two goals from only a few touches in first half. Lifted a little. 4

15   Suspended.  
16   Suspended.  
17 Carl Three ripping goals in first term and finished with six. Fine game. 9

19 Geel Well held by Guthrie-J Hunt and didn’t attack the ball as he could at times 4
20 Adel Not his fault that opportunities were limited but kicked two goals. 3
21 Ess Didn’t get it all his own way against close-checking Baguley. 4
22 Haw Cut out of game by Guerra. Brought up 50 goals for the year. 4
23 Coll Great battle against Shaw. Kicked three goals, two from stoppages. 6

2012 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Ess First shot was a worrying miss from close in, but he recovered. 6
2 GWS Couldn’t get into it and was subbed off with shoulder problem. 3
3 Geel Kicked one goal but was pretty quiet given the side had 57 inside 50s. 3
4 Syd Flashed in and out of play and kicked two goals to be among best. 6
5 GCS Caused chaos at half forward, set up numerous attacks and kicked 3.0. 8
6 WCE Lively but didn’t hurt the Eagles with the footy. 5
7 WB Only forward to look dangerous throughout. Kicked 3.2 in steady effort. 6
8 Port Five-minute period in second term where he kicked two goals, one behind. 5
10 VFL Responded to his omission with a bag of six goals.
12 GCS His forward pressure was good but as per usual had his goal kicking problems. 5
13 Adel Won ball well. Kicked crucial pressure goal in third term. Good for self belief. 6
14 StK Kicked three important goals and looked relieved by achieving accuracy. 6
15 WCE Lined up on Butler and effective with three goals. But theatrics creeping in. 5
16 Carl Brilliant goal in third. Always a menace with three goals limited from touches. 5
17 Rich Didn’t kick a goal and just the six effective disposals tells a story. 3
18 Melb A quiet day with just eight touches but kicked two smart goals. 4
21 Coll Three shots at goal for three goals. Worried O’Brien all night. 7
22 Frem Kicked three goals and made the most of his chances. 5

EF WCE Workrate good but didn’t finish his work and in the end beaten by Butler. 4
