2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Melb Not a memorable first game in defence with his second club and was outmarked and outrun. 2
2 WCE Fantastic for three quarters. Kept Kennedy to three touches and one goal. Then the Eagle kicked three goals in the final term. 6
3 Bris Fine defensive job in the back half opposed to tall young Lions’ forwards. 7
4 Coll OK against former side, picking up some possessions in the defensive chip-around and keeping Moore in check. 3
5 Geel Actually did a good job on Hawkins who only got his goals late in game when Saints were folding Chinese deckchair style. 6
6 Haw Flipped between a few forward including Gunston. Knee hyperextension in third term but finished game off. 6
7 GWS Thrown task on Patton and was able to do the job on him. Patton kicked one goal from six kicks. 8
8 Carl Another no fuss performance. Did the job on the Casboult. 6
9 Syd Had the big job on Buddy and gave an honest performance which ensured the Swan start didn’t wreak havoc. 5
10 WB Couldn’t keep pace with Stringer and against a small attack couldn’t find a logical match-up. 3
11   Bye.  
12 Adel Had his hands full with Josh Jenkins who returned to form with three goals. 4
13 NM On his namesake Ben Brown and stuck to task but North made it easier for him. 4
14 GCS Lined up on Lynch and stuck to the task against taller opponent. Kept him goalless. 7
15 Frem Kept Fremantle’s key forwards quiet again. Going well. 6
16 Rich Had a fairly easy night because Richmond couldn't deliver to Jack Riewoldt. 6
17 Ess Honest effort in defence against Hooker and wasn't the worst. 4
18 Syd Had the big job on Buddy and was never going to contain him all night, but kept at it. 4
19 Port Kept tabs on Dixon in first there quarters then couldn’t stay with him in last half hour. 3

22 NM Was on Ben Brown for most of the day and did a capable job. 6
23 Rich Had Townsend at times but was without a true tall forward match up. Offensive work never been his strong suit. 3

2013 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 NM Did a great job on Petrie, which helped materially towards the win. 8

7 Frem Had Hannath early but left without an obvious match-up when he went into ruck. 4
8 Geel Battled Podsiadly who got away on him in third term. OK apart from that. 6
