2017 Digest:   Proven to be a bargain-basement pick up over the past few seasons and plays a valuable role. Must maintain form though.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 NM Not as prolific as midfield teammates but has some handy touches. 5
2 StK Had 17 disposals but wasn’t prominent. Worked hard in tight though. 4
3 Rich Not a bad game with 16 touches and a goal. Showed some class in patches. 6
4 WAFL Soldiered on in midfield but had next to no support. 32 possessions.
5 WAFL One of the Royals best in midfield. 28 possessions and seven clearances.
6   Senior emergency.  
7 Port Played as a defensive forward on Jack Hombsch and was okay. 4
8 WAFL Hard worker in midfield with 31 possessions and eight clearances. One of the Royals best.
9 WAFL Didn’t have a massive day, but battled hard and provided good leadership.
10 GWS Moved onto Shiel and restricted his influence in the second half. 6
11 GCS Not a lot of the footy (10 possessions) though made the most of it (90% efficiency). 4
12   Bye.  
13 Geel Tagged J Selwood and was able to restrict him to 13 effective disposals which was a huge win for the Eagles. 7
14 Melb Great job on Clayton Oliver early. Released and kicked two goals of his own. 7
15 WB Played forward but didn’t see much of it. 3
16 Port No genuine tagging role this week. Floated between players. 5
17 Frem Tagged Walters for most of the game and did well. Released the tag during the second half. 6
18 Coll Had the job on Sidebottom and forced him to operate below normal standards. Played his part. 6
19 Bris Followed Rich as much as possible. The Lion’s kicking was damaging all day. 4
20 StK Wore Jack Steven like a glove and ensured he never took charge around the ground. 8
21 Carl Tagged Sam Docherty for a half and did a strong job of keeping him out of the game. 5
22 GWS Did well tagging Shiel. No real impact going the other way. 5
23 Adel Tagged Sloane for a lot of the day. Couldn’t stop him from winning the ball but kicked two goals. 5
EF Port Started well in midfield in defensive role, but then quiet. 5
SF GWS Assigned the task of running with Scully and was able to restrict him to a degree. Not the worst. 6

6 Coll Kept Sidebottom in check. Kicked a goal too. 6
7 Geel Went to Selwood after half time and kept him to 11 disposals. Batted hard. 5
8 StK Couple of neat goals sent a message to club that didn’t give him a senior game. 6
9 Port Won his fair share of the footy, but a touch fumbly on occasions. 6
10 GCS Followed Ablett. Couldn’t stop him from winning the footy. 3
11 WB Spent time on Liberatore and OK in that role. Kicked one late goal but didn’t lay a tackle. 5
12 Adel Won the contested ball. Had a crack all night. 6
13 Bris Hard to evaluate his true worth when eight of his 13 disposals were deemed ineffective. 4
15 Ess Spent time playing a negative role. Laid eight tackles. 5
16 NM Good as a defensive forward. Sticks to his task. 5
17 Carl Hardly sighted through the midfield. Only two tackles and two inside-50s. 4
18 WAFL Battled hard in the midfield with 24 disposals, 10 marks and six tackles.
19 Coll Worked hard defensively to lay eight tackles and won his fair share of ball. OK. 6

22 Haw Closed down Mitchell. Kept him quiet. 7
23 Adel Three clearances, three inside-50s and a goal. 6

14 StK Great start and was a solid ball winner all day. 7
