2017 Digest:   Struggled last year with injury and has been nursed through. Available to play but might need more game time in SANFL.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GWS Two great clutch goals when the Crows needed him most. 6
2 Haw Provided some midfield support without starring; 12 effective disposals and four tackles. 5
3 Port Pushed forward for two goals but his run and carry were missing this game. 5
4 Ess Great battle with Andrew McGrath, set up two goals with his three inside-50’s. 6
5 GCS Was having a reasonable evening (19 possessions and two goals) but hurt his hamstring late. 5
6   Hamstring.  
7 NM Late inclusion for Milera and had minimal impact on the game through midfield. 2
8   Glute.  
9   Glute.  
10 SANFL Promising, skilful return from glute injury.
11 SANFL Racked up 11 tackles and nailed a fine goal. Played his part.
12 StK Couldn’t quite get into the speed of the game, should be better for the run. 3
13   Bye.  
14 SANFL Slotted Adelaide’s first two goals and enjoyed a particularly dynamic first half.
15 Carl Needs to build from this performance, two goals and five tackles is a good start though. 5
16 WB Great third term where he set up a goal for Betts with a deft tap and then marked strongly in front of the pack and kicked truly. 6
17 Melb Made some errors, but worked hard defensively with five tackles. 5
18 Geel Given role to shut down Selwood and co around the stoppages. Only nine touches but did his job. 5
19 Coll Spent time shadowing Adam Treloar and pushed forward for an important goal in the last term. 6
20 Port Rotated between Ollie Wines and Robbie Gray, couldn’t stop them but was ok without being great. 4
21 Ess Cool type under pressure and did a few nice things. 4
22 Syd Had the forward tagging role on McVeigh, worked in the first term until McVeigh switched forward. 6
23 WCE Quiet. Only 11 touches. 4
QF GWS Another Crow who flies under the radar but is crucial to the structure. Was clean on a slippery night and tackled hard. 7
PF Geel Spare parts midfielder did what he could with 14 disposals. Handy throughout. 5
GF Rich Tagged Cotchin early and was successful in that role. When released he couldn’t get into the game. 3

16 Port Looks a player, finding his feet at the highest level but not overawed. 4

18 Syd Couldn’t get a look in early and subbed off at three quarter time. 3
19 Rich Started forward and was handy at times then subbed. 4
20 Ess One goal and a handful of touches for the development player. 4
21 Bris Just doing enough to keep his place in the side, will need to improve output. 6
22 WCE Like Atkins just doing enough, will want to increase his work-rate. 5
23 Geel Could not get into the game at all. Will he keep a place for this week’s final? 2
EF WB Kicked crucial goal from long way out on boundary in third term. 5
