2017 Digest:   Seamless return after a shoulder reco. Hasn’t let anyone get past him in midfield pecking order and is in good touch.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Didn't cover enough ground as an on baller and wasn’t incisive with his use of the ball. 4
2 WCE Worked hard without having a major impact with his disposals. 5
3 Bris Industrious in midfield and hit the scoreboard with 1.1, but doesn’t hurt the opposition often enough with possessions. 6
4 Coll Started in middle appearing to take up a defensive role (seven tackles and just 11 possessions). 4
5 Geel What he did was good but has to touch the ball more than 12 times to hurt the opposition; 12 touches, one goal. 4
6 VFL Back to some better form with 22 possessions, nine inside-50s and seven tackles.
7 VFL Worked hard enough with 27 touches, eight clearances and nine tackles.
8 Carl Played his part in the midfield with 28 touches and found some decent form after a stint in the VFL. 7
9 Syd Predominantly disposed of the ball by hand and wasn’t a big factor. 4
10 VFL Battled the game out in a well-beaten midfield. 27 possessions, eight clearances.
11 VFL One of the Zebs best. Had 30 touches, seven clearances and seven tackles in the loss.
12 VFL Kicked two goals to go with his 24 touches. Good without being great.
13 NM In and out of side. Did a few things but needs to do more to hold spot. 4
14 GCS Stats indicated bigger impact on the game than he actually had. 4
15 Frem Laid seven tackles but managed only 11 possessions and missed some chances. 3
16 VFL Easily Sandy's best with 38 touches, seven clearances and two goals.
17 VFL Stood out the most with his clean ball use. Will be on the fringe of senior team after 28 touches at 82 per cent.
18 Syd A 10 possession first quarter signalled a strong return. Ended with 29 touches and used ball better than in recent outings. 6
19 Port Backed up last week’s game with another excellent display on the ball. Could be a career turning point. 7
20 WCE A solid game after two strong weeks. 6
21 Melb Two goals from midfield was a good return, but was left flat-footed early on. Fought back. 6
22 NM Continued a good run of form in recent weeks and was strong across four quarters. 7
23 Rich Missed two sitters in first quarter. Battled hard but his kicking is not great for a midfielder; 30 disposals. 6

2016 Season

1 Port Suffered a heavy knock after a bruising tackle on Hartlett and had limited impact. 4
2 WB One of many inside midfielders who struggled to get their hands on the ball. 4
3 Coll Tackled brilliantly (seven) and had four clearances and three inside-50s to keep midfield wheels turning. 7
4   Hamstring.  
5 GWS Started with all guns blazing but then diminished influence. 5
6 Melb Good ball-winner but tapered at the end. 6
7 NM Whole-hearted effort in midfield but a few late kicks missed the target. 6
8 WCE Not incisive enough in midfield battle. 3
9 Ess Won ball well and had high handball to kick ratio. 6
10 Frem Steady input from midfield although dipped in second and third quarters. 5
11 Adel Started well but usage below par. Early missed shots didn’t help. 4
12 Carl Low-key but kept grinding away in middle. 5
14 Geel Solid and honest game in the midfield. 5
15 GCS Chugged along but didn’t do any damage. 4
16 Ess Toiled away in packs and the bulk of his disposals were handballs. 5
17 Melb Tackling work and determination in packs made him a handy contributor. 5
18 WB Impressive midfield performance in terms of pressure and creativity. 7
19 NM Like several teammates couldn’t make an impact in midfield. 3
20 Carl Solid display until an ugly shoulder dislocation forced him off. 4
21   Shoulder.  
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.  

2015 Season

1 GWS Looked to be pitted against Treloar and was just OK. 4
2 GCS Relished midfield workload and a constant generator. 7
3 Coll Solid and consistent effort in midfield. 6
5 Ess Solid game and showed great work-rate. Lack of right foot power a worry. 6
6 WB Blue-collar worker in midfield. Not a big player but did his bit. 5
7 Adel Powerful midfielder struggled to impact the game. 3
8 WCE Tagging role on Priddis which he found hard. Lacks zips and may need rest. 3
9 Bris Big second quarter and a key midfield driver. Off with head knock briefly. 7
10   Rested.  
11 Melb In and out of the game, but did a few nice things. 4
13 WB Matched on Wallis most of the night. 5
14 Ess Sub came on last term and handy with a goal thrown in. 2
15 GWS Shiel got away early. Not an incisive player. 4
16 Rich Looked sharp and won the ball inside packs. Tackled well. 7
17 Melb Had the better of duel with Jones in first half. 6
18 Port Had job of tracking Gray and found him hard to contain. 5
19   Soreness.  
20   Calf.  
21 Geel Solid performer in midfield. 6
22 Syd Sub came on in third quarter and won some touches. 3
23 WCE Worked hard inside and out packs. 5

2014 Season

1 Melb Did the lot with tackles and hard ball gets. Looked like he had been there forever. 7
2 GWS Not as prominent as first game but still a meaningful contributor. 5
3 WCE Excellent work in close and went head to head with Priddis. They played wide. 7
4 Adel OK but not as influential as in earlier rounds. 5
5 Ess Busy and creative early. A solid contributor. 5
6 Bris Bored in hard all game. 5
7   Concussion.  
8 Carl Mainly used handball and was usually creative. Heavy knock but kept going. 5
9 GCS Did some nice things, but was quiet overall. 4
11 Coll Good game in midfield and up forward. 4
12 Port A quality performer in middle. 6
13 Geel Quiet day and had attention to a shoulder. 3
14   Shoulder.  
15 Rich Quiet day. 3
16 Carl Kept working hard. Copped heavy hit to ribs. 4
17 NM Handy without having huge impact on game. 4
18 Frem Strong game despite hurting his shoulder along the way. 6
19 GCS Not a big day and may be feeling the pinch of a long debut season. 3
20   Shoulder.  
21   Shoulder.  
22   Shoulder.  
23   Shoulder.
