2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Syd Expect nothing less than a wire-to-wire effort highlighted by 33 disposals and nine clearances. 8
2 Frem Best on ground performance, winning contested possessions, clearances and kicking goals. 9
3 Adel Easily Port’s best for the game and season so far, this could be the year he elevates himself to greatness. 8
4 GWS Just the two clearances to go with his 19 possessions. Not his best outing this year but tried hard. 6
5 Carl Went head to head with Patrick Cripps, and had more contributions from his teammates which got on the end of his grunt work. 8
6 Bris Reasonably well held and quite inefficient with his disposals, going at 50%. 4
7 WCE Down from previous weeks, copped two heavy knocks, one on the leg and the other across the head in a bruising tackle. 6
8 GCS Provided the grunt work in middle without being at his absolute best. Still a good contributor. 7
9   Bye.  
10 Geel Superb effort highlight eight tackles six clearances 31 disposals. Can he win the Brownlow – certainly in the mix. 9
11 Haw Not best game for the year but provided some run and was tough in and around the ball. Highlight was 10 clearances. 7
12 Ess Okay start, then hobbled in second term with knee issue, but returned. Tried, but not his best. 6
13 Bris Port Adelaide’s best with two goals from four attempts, gave off two more goals and had six inside-50’s. 8
14 Coll Despite having left knee tapped like Moss Trooper he was all over the place with 23 possessions and seven inside-50s. 8
15 Rich Hard to be critical when you when you win ten clearances but looked tired in the second half. 7
16 WCE Hard at the footy. Won eight clearances among his 28 touches and one goal. 8
17 NM Great performance in his milestone game with seven clearances, three inside-50’s and a goal. 7
18 Melb Went head to head with Viney and worked hard. His mate had the better of the duel though. 6
19 StK Solid on ball and in attack. Good even game across four quarters. 6
20 Adel Won eight clearances and two inside-50’s, but not enough to hurt the Crows midfield. 6
21 Coll Could be in trouble with a bump against Tom Langdon, apart from that led from the front with nine clearances and a goal. 8
22 WB Won plenty of the pill in midfield battle and relished the cold conditions. Nine clearances. 8
23 GCS Won 16 contested possessions, the highest of any player on the ground. 8
EF WCE Just one kick in the first half but then got the motor pumping and was very good in final stanza. 7
