2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 NM Got the Eagles going with four goals in the first hour and a bit. Made the most of Roos' slack defensive checking. 8
2 StK Another forward who struggled for most of the night. Most of his disposals came in the final term. 4
3 Rich ‘Mr Opportunity’ missed some sitters. 3 goals off 7 scoring shots was disappointing when comparing to his standards. 6
4 Syd Bobbed up with a second term goal, then the first major of the second half. Sprayed the ball at times though. 5
5 Haw Floated up from forward 50 and was handy early. Then must have done a smokey with Duggan. 4
6 Frem Dangerous inside 50 and kicked three goals. 6
7 Port Three goals in the first term and another late in the third quarter proved to be crucial. 7
8 WB Off target like LeCras. Booted three behinds and wasted a shot late in the final term by dribbling from long range. 5
9 Ess Wasn’t able to hit the scoreboard enough to ever worry the Bombers. Just the three behinds. 3
10   Hip.  
11 GCS Unhappy return for Eagle veteran. Another who would be concerned on his place in the side. 2
12   Bye.  
13 Geel Beaten by Bews. Didn’t hit the scoreboard and mustered five kicks for the night. 3
14   Hip.  
15   Hip.  
16 Port Returned from injury and kicked four goals to remind everyone of his talent. 7
17 Frem Booted two goals during the third term. Made the most of his chances. 5
18 Coll Hardly sighted. Doesn’t provide much when he fails to kick a goal. 3
19 Bris Booted a sensational goal from the boundary line. Kicked two for the game and had 20 disposals. 7
20 StK Always had to be watched by Webster and kicked three handy goals in a tight game which was a good return. 6
21   Hamstring.  
22   Hamstring.  
23 Adel Booted two goals. Took another shot when he should have passed. A better effort. 5
EF Port Finished as a league player. Lacked pace to gain separation and was never a threat. 2
SF GWS Smart first term goal and got one in final term. Did nothing else. Cooked. 3

2016 Season

1 Bris Took a while to get into the match but had a big impact close to goal when he did. 6
2 Haw Quiet day despite numbers in attack or when pushing into midfield. 4
3 Frem Won plenty of the ball but kicked poorly around the ground. 5
4 Rich Worked around the ground and snared two goals too. Busy. 6
5 Syd Tried hard but couldn’t make an imprint on the game. 4
6 Coll Best on ground. Kicked three goals and set up others. Also had 27 touches. 9
7 Geel One goal but only one inside-50 and seven effective disposals. 3
8 StK Back to his best with six goals and Saints had no solution. 8
9 Port Kicking for goal is not what it used to be; struggling to make distance from 40m. 7
10 GCS Made the most of his chances. Not a lot of possessions but kicked three goals. 6
11 WB Chimed in with two goals but wasn’t a consistent factor across half forward. Two inside-50s. 5
12 Adel Battled. Couldn’t get into the game. 3
13 Bris Too creative for Lions defenders and set win up with three first half goals. 8
15 Ess Got the job done with 17 touches. 5
16 NM Did his job. Kicked two goals and worked hard for 20 touches. 6
17 Carl Bobbed up for two goals, had four score assists and laid seven tackles. Solid. 7
18 Melb Would have liked the ball to be forward more. 5
19 Coll Unable to have any real impact in front half. Looked to be lacking zip and step in traffic. 2
20 Frem Started poorly. Finished strongly. Kicked three goals. 6
21 GWS Dangerous in attack with 2.4. Needs to back up that form if the Eagles are a flag hope. 7
22 Haw Dangerous both inside 50 and up the field. Kicked 2.2 from 24 touches. 7
23 Adel Back in form at the pointy end of the season, another solid performance. 6
EF WB Missed two chances early, which dampened his impact. One goal, three inside-50s. 4

2015 Season

1 WB Great battle with Morris. Ended with goal and only one inside-50. 5
2 Carl Got off the chain enough, particularly after half time, to hurt the Blues. 6
3 Frem Ended with five goals but had no impact early when game was there to be won. 6
4 Bris Got the better of Adcock in the end. 7
5 GWS Subbed out in the final term. Was busy without getting rewards. 5
6 Port Was everywhere, six clearances, six inside-50s and a goal in the third term. 8
7 GCS Played everywhere and kicked three goals. Started at half-back. 7
8 StK Kept under tight rein by Weller. 3
9 Geel Only one goal but able to work up the ground to get involved. Eight inside-50s. 7
10 NM Struggled to find the ball and unusually quiet for most of the day. 3
11 Ess Dominant. Kicked 4.3 from 21 possessions. Set up the win in the first half. 7
12 Rich Solid workmanlike effort. 5
14 Melb Worked up ground to play role in controlling time in forward half. 6
15 Adel Brilliant early. Had 17 touches and kicked two goals in the first half. 8
16 Coll Sharp in all his ball handling and always posed a threat. 7
17 Syd Chipped in for two goals. Always threatening but not a star. 6
18 GCS Looked dangerous but could only muster one goal. 4
19 Haw Got reported but was important and set up several scores. 6
20   Suspended.  
21 WB Really strong game. Three goals and always in the action. 7
22 Adel Two goals in the second half but played a roaming role across the park. 5
23 StK Damaging early and finished with four goals in a quality display. 7
QF Haw Kicked a critical goal in third term and a threatening presence all night. 7
PF NM Took 10 marks and came into his own late in the game. Kicked 1.3. 6
GF Haw One goal but had to do more on big stage. Bobbed up, but not often enough. 5

2014 Season

1 WB Burnt Picken off to kick two first-half goals and added three more for a bag of five. 9
2 Melb Not as brilliant as last week but chipped in with two goals. 5
3 StK Hurt forearm early and went off. Will be out for a while. 0
4   Arm.  
5   Arm.  
6   Arm.  
7   Arm.  
8 GWS Gave Shaw the run around all afternoon with four goals and 22 touches. 8
10   Suspended.  
11 NM Looked like tearing the game apart early. OK after that but use was down. 6
12 Haw West Coast needed more from him as the team’s best forward. One goal. 5
13 GCS Only the one goal was a modest return. 3
14 StK Much more active than last week, but was inaccurate in front of goal. 6
15 Frem One of his better games as a midfielder. Used ball fairly well, kicked two goals. 7
16 Syd Beaten by Smith and struggled to have any real impact. 4
17 Bris Two goals, missed another straight in front. Overall, good but could’ve been better. 6
18 Rich Had to move well up the ground to get involved. One goal but not a huge impact. 4
19 Adel Well held by Brown despite his late goal. 4
20   Calf.  
21   Calf.  
22 Melb Gave Garland the run around then ran through midfield. Four goals a great return. 8
23 GCS Two first-quarter goals and four by game’s end. Classy every time he went near it. 8

2013 Season

1 Frem Looked back to his best up forward before arm injury ended his night in third term. 5
2   Arm.  
3 Melb Off the pace early but showed his class with three goals. Used it beautifully. 6
4 Carl Polish about what he did and spent some of night across half back. Among better Eagles. 7
5 Port Could have levelled the match in the dying stages only to pull his set shot. 5
6 WB Plenty of touches on good opponent in Morris. Kicked three, but was inaccurate. 6
7 Bris Kicked three goals but got frustrated and lapsed in discipline a lot. 6
8 NM Had no trouble finding the ball forward of centre but kicking boots were left at home. 5
9 GWS Outshone by some of his forward cohorts, he still hit the scoreboard. 5
10 Rich Morris tracked him and shut him down completely in first half. 3
11   Arm.  
12   Arm.  
13 Haw Great snap goal to start second term and kicked two. Provided something. 6
14 Ess Really came into his own in third term. 5
15 Adel Slowly getting back to his best, kicked one goal from four scoring shots. 5
16 Frem Kicked two goals but Spurr did a good job on him. 4
17 Syd Got the ball often enough but not in dangerous positions. 5
18   Foot.  
19   Foot.  
20 Ess Shook off an early rib injury to run riot after half time with five goals. 8
21   Ribs.  
22   Ribs.  
23   Ribs.
