2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Syd Rucked pretty much solo and did it with enough oomph to be a key to the win. 7
2 Frem Used Aaron Sandilands as a step ladder, not sure if it was legal but the umpires were ok with it. 6
3 Adel 23 Hit-outs in the first term and was dominating, undisciplined free kick against Knight in the last term cost a goal. 7
4   Suspended.  
5 Carl Dominated Andrew Phillips in the hit-outs 41 – 29. 6
6 Bris Good battle with Martin and started to find his rhythm. 7
7 WCE Marked everything that went he way, best big man on the ground, along with Charlie Dixon almost dragged his team over the line. 8
8 GCS Excellent in the ruck with his follow up once the ball hit the ground. Some sublime taps as well. 7
9   Bye.  
10 Geel Great battle with Smith which probably ended in a nil-all draw. Kicked a goal, took some nice marks but only six effective disp. 7
11 Haw Provided an armchair ride for his onballers who lapped up the service to slice through Hawks. Is he the All Australian ruckman? 8
12 Ess Had Bellchambers measure in ruck contests, but not normal impact once the ball hit the deck. 5
13 Bris Dominated in ruck, then pushed forward in the second half and was rewarded with two goals. 7
14 Coll Celebrated 200th game with a great battle against Grundy; 10 disposals, five marks and four clearances. 5
15 Rich Has to be the leading contender for the All-Australian Ruckman position, consistently gives his midfielders first use of the footy. 7
16 WCE Best on ground. Controlled the game with his brilliant ruck work and two goals. 9
17 NM Rolled his ankle after getting caught under a Lindsay Thomas tackle but jogged it off and returned to the game. 7
18 Melb Had pants pulled down by Gawn in first half, then took over when the Dee went off briefly. Okay, but not his best. 6
19 StK In red-hot form in the ruck and in first half his controlled taps set up mids. 8
20 Adel Lost out to Sam Jacobs in the ruck and didn’t give his midfield service as he usually does. 6
21 Coll Had some great taps to advantage but didn’t have it his own way as expected against Mason Cox. 6
22 WB Huge first term into the wind in ruck with two goals. Marked strongly and was a big factor in the result. 8
23 GCS Made light work of the inexperienced Brooksby and Wright in the ruck duels. 7
EF WCE Jumped all over Vardy and Petrie at stoppage, but unable to find the ball around ground. Disappointing night. 4

2015 Season

1 Frem Competed against Sandilands. Took two contested marks. Should be happy. 5
2 Syd Played more as a ruckman but did kick his first goals for his new club. 6
3 NM Beaten early by Goldstein but continued to jump and was influential late. 6
4 Haw 21 hit-outs and two goals, relished freedom with the return of Lobbe. 6
5 Adel Three goals and 18 hit-outs, a more than reasonable effort. 6
6 WCE Didn’t make an impact up forward or in ruck. 5
7 Bris Didn’t put size to enough use against inexperienced/under-sized defence. 5
8 Rich Playing his role as the back-up ruckman but not as the second tall forward. 5
9   Achilles.  
10   Achilles.  
11   Achilles.  
12   Achilles.  
13   Achilles.  
14 Syd Looked dangerous as ruck option inside forward 50. Handy without starring. 5
15 Coll His best game with the club, 35 hit-outs, three clearances, seven inside-50s. 7
16 Adel Port’s best target up forward, too tall for the small Crows defenders. 7
17 Ess Booed every time he touched ball. Quiet early but last laugh with four goals. 7
18 StK Should have done better with one goal from four attempts. 5
19 WB Nowhere near form of recent weeks, 18 hit-outs but just three marks. 3
20 GWS Getting better the longer the season progresses, won 46 hit-outs. 8
21 Haw Put on a rucking exhibition with tapwork. Poor kicking the only lowlight of a big night. 8
22 GCS Booted an early goal but that was as good as it got for the night. 3
23 Frem Worked well in tandem with Lobbe, lots to build on for 2016. 6

2014 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 NM Even contest with Goldstein and had a fine game. 7
2 Haw Struggling then injured ankle/knee in third term and subbed out. 2
3   Ankle.  
4   Ankle.  
5 StK Good tussle with Hickey but also needed up forward. 5
6 Coll Won his share of hit-outs (37) and seven clearances but not a major factor 5
7 WB Won the centre hit outs but the lost the battles around the ground. Broke even. 5
8 Bris Marked well and split ruck taps with opponent West. 5
9 Syd Played mostly in attack and looked dangerous leading up on Richards. Two goals. 6
11 Rich Took most of the ruck duties and held his own but was able to play a role around ground. 5
12 GWS Did the greater share of Bomber ruckwork, but lowered colours. 5
13 Melb Spent time in the ruck and attack, and wasn’t at his best in either role. 4
14 Adel Two goals and his follow-up work at ground level after hit-outs was good as well. 8
15 Geel Started brilliantly (7 disposals first term) then effort petered a little. OK last term. 6
16 Port Even dual with Lobbe and produced a fine goal from an acute angle. 6
17 Coll Solid worker in the ruck. 5
18 WB Huge game in setting the side up around ball and added two goals for good measure. 8
19 Syd Good in ruck all night but Pyke won more taps and also looked dangerous in attack. 6
20 Rich Started well then Maric started to wear him down. Only one possession in final term. 6
21 WCE OK in ruck without setting the world on fire. 4
22 GCS Dominated at times. Athleticism worried the Suns. Iced game with two late goals. 8
23 Carl Most effective big man on the ground. Rucked well, and dangerous forward. 7
EF NM Beaten in ruck duels but kicked excellent goal after week of pressure. 5

2013 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 Adel Did a few brilliant things without being a major influence. 7
2 Melb Ruckwork was superb and provided a threat pushing forward. 7
3 Frem Poor start but then Dons looked more energetic in packs when he was on-ball. 6
4   Suspended.  
5   Suspended.  
6   Suspended.  
7 VFL Bye.
8 Bris Took a couple of nice marks and was handy without starring – 11 contested poss. 6
9 Rich A important game in the ruck and took some timely grabs in defence. 7
10 Syd Didn’t get much latitude from Richards, but was al right when rucking 4
11 Carl Carried ruck load with Bellchambers dropped and relief from Daniher. 5
12 GCS Slow start but became increasingly influential. Two goals also. 7
14 WCE Fine effort against two-pronged Eagle rucks. 7
15 Port Solid effort in ruck and resting forward. Lobbe a tough opponent though. 6
16 WB Did some brilliant things and had 9 hit-outs to advantage. Played a key role. 6
17 GWS Contributed to the cause but probably shaded by Giles and Brogan. 5
18 Haw Beaten by Hale/Bailey for most of the night. Only seven effective disposals. 4
19 Coll Six hit-outs to advantage but little around the ground. 4
20 WCE Beaten in the ruck by the Eagles duo and struggled to get involved around the ground. 5
21   Suspended.  
22 Carl Kicked an important last quarter goal and broke even with Warnock. 6
23 Rich Drifted in and out and needs to have a far greater influence to take his game up a notch. 4

2012 Season

Played for : Essendon

1 NM Best ruckman on field and played vital game. 8
2 Port Rucked solo for three quarters – 46 hits outs but few were to advantage. 5
3 GCS Kicked a brilliant last quarter goal and used mainly forward all night. 5
4 Carl Another good game. 19 hit-outs and worked tirelessly around ground. 7
5 Coll Didn’t get into the game to any degree be it forward or ruck. 5
6 Bris Good in ruck with 21 hit-outs but lacked usual energy around the ground. 4
7 WCE Posed a constant threat to Eagles when at full forward. 6
8 Rich On fire early with three goals in first term then tapered. 6
9 GWS Too nimble in ruck for Giles and Phillips and kicked two goals when forward. 7
10 Melb Worked hard in rucks. 5
11 Syd Well beaten by Grundy in first half, but rucked second half and won most taps. 5
13 Frem Had a big second half which helped set up the win. 6
14 WB Steady, if unremarkable game in ruck. 6
15 StK Won most hit-outs on ground but not a big influence around the field. 5
21 Carl Zero touches first quarter and ended with two goals from four marks. 4
