2017 Digest:   A clean, steady footballer whose kicking is safe if not penetrating. A sustained injury-free run may prove him better than that.

2017 Season

4 VFL Solid again in the back half and has to come under consideration for Anzac Day.
5 VFL Steady game again across half back, just had little to no support. Has to be nearing a senior return.
6 VFL Can’t be far off a call up with another strong display. Gained plenty of distance with 18 kicks and found space around the ground.
7 VFL On fire early and marked everything in sight. Quietened a touch, but still had a good day. How is he not playing seniors?!
8 VFL Superb again in defence. 34 possessions and is now on the verge of a senior return.
9 VFL Dominant down back with 41 possession. Took 11 marks and had five rebounds.
10 Bris Quiet but fact he got through first game of the season was a huge positive. Will only get better. 4
11 Frem Not flashy but got a job done defensively 5
12 Melb Couple of skill errors from defence but can cut him some slack. Is slowly finding his niche at the senior level. 4
13   Bye.  
14 VFL Outstanding at half back. 35 possessions, 13 marks and seven rebounds.
15 VFL Solid effort but they are wasting their time leaving him in the VFL. Just play him, Bucks!
16 Ess Had Stewart who got off the chain in second term. Battled hard but made some mistakes with ball in hand. 5
17 GCS Looked comfortable across half back, thwarting plenty of Suns entries. 21 possessions and nine marks. 6
18   Senior emergency.  
19 Adel We all know the kid can play, just needs a good run of consecutive game to prove himself on the big stage. 6
20 NM Got caught out at times defensively but did show some glimpses of his kicking skills. Developing nicely. 7
21 Port Turning into the player Collingwood were hoping for, classy in defence and isn’t overawed. 7
22 Geel Good game. Positive for the side with a steady 23-disposal effort and some nice marks. 7
23 Melb Started on Pedersen, but also had some back issues. Went forward in last quarter. 5

13 VFL Steady effort in defence.
14 VFL One of his better games so far. In everything in first half. 22 touches.
15 VFL Not his best game at half back. 16 touches.
16 VFL Steady down back without setting the world on fire.
17 VFL OK at half back but didn’t seem to extend himself fully.
18 Melb Crunched early, had nine second-term touches. Solid debut. 7
19 Carl Sub. On at three-quarter time and had nine touches. 3
20 VFL Responded well with 23 touches and three rebounds.
21 VFL Gave away centimetres but competed strongly down back.
22 Geel Menzel gave him some trouble early and was moved. Cool customer. 4
