2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GWS Three goals from the wing and a whopping 10 inside-50's. 8
2 Haw Added 19 touches and a goal to his superb Round 1 effort. Speed and playmaking welcome addition to midfield. 7
3 Port Was prominent without stamping himself into the game. 6
4 Ess Two crucial goals including a bomb from outside 50. 5
5 GCS Linked up well with defence and pumped the ball inside 50 a team high eight times. 7
6 Rich Hard to believe he has played less than forty games, outstanding on the wing. 7
7 NM Had 20 touches, but those numbers flatter. Hair-do looked like a Frisbee sitting atop his noggin. Back to the hairdresser. 4
8 Melb Nice goal from a tight angle in the second term when the Crows were up. Not his best game though. 5
9 Bris Another vital cog in a very slick midfield operation although his skill level was off on occasion. 6
10 Frem Won a game high 37 possessions including four clearances, five inside-50’s and five rebound-50’s. 7
11 Geel One kick in opening half and seven for the match in what was a big fall from the highs of 37 against Fremantle. 2
12 StK Slowly returning to the form which had him burning up the wing earlier in the season. 6
13   Bye.  
14 Haw Kicking was poor in the first term but made amends for the rest of the game. 6
15 Carl Was in a three on one contest in the last quarter and did well to win his team the footy with a free kick. 6
16 WB Six rebound-50’s and a classy goal in the second term, still needs to tidy up his disposal efficiency. 6
17 Melb Had 17 touches, but wasn’t a massive factor on the outside in the win. 5
18 Geel Huge first half help side get away from the Cats. Found plenty of space to use his left foot. 7
19 Coll Got into the game in the second half with five inside-50’s. 5
20 Port Didn’t light it up as previous weeks but a good sign that his excellent wing play wasn’t needed in this game. 5
21 Ess Pinpoint use of the ball from defence and also ran forward to score. 8
22 Syd Got caught twice running too far, needs to be more decisive with finals around the corner. 6
23 WCE Had some handy moments with his 21 disposals. 5
QF GWS Good ball user on the outside and played his role effectively. 6
PF Geel So outside was the game even he joined in for 22 disposals and five inside-50s. Huge in linking team. 7
GF Rich Great first term but effort told and he petered out as the game dragged on. 17 disposals. 5

2016 Season

1 NM Four inside-50s and 10 contested possessions. Steady but didn’t star. 5
2 Port Linked up well between defence and attack but would want to find more of the ball. 5
3 Rich Bit part player on a wing with just nine possessions. The quietest Crow. 3
4 Syd Needed to respond after a quiet game and did so with six inside-50s and a goal. 7
5 Haw Built on strong form of previous week to accumulate a heap of touches. One of best. 7
6 Frem Gifted a goal after a crude Spurr tackle on Betts in the goal square. 6
7 WB Claimed some ball but not a massively damaging player. Two inside-50s, no tackles. 4
8 Geel Continued his rich vein of form with another impressive display. 7
9 GCS Finished the match full of running and booted a goal. 6
10 GWS Getting better with each game, his best yet at senior level. 7
11 StK Slow start but a big second half with five inside-50s. 6
12 WCE Solid job. Tackled well to lock the ball inside the attacking half. 5
14 NM Quickly becoming a cult figure, can produce something out of nothing. 7
15 Melb Steady with the ball from wing and did his job. Two clearances. 6
16 Carl Four inside-50s but just nine kicks. Minor role in the victory. 4
17 Coll Another stylish game, however needs to improve his decision making. 7
18 Geel Horrible first half (four disposals) but did get better after main break. 3
19 Ess Won plenty of footy but not great with his decision making. 6
20 Bris Returned to form with a bang with eight inside-50s. 7
21 Frem Found plenty of the footy. Had 32 touches and kicked a goal. 7
22 Port One of only two natural left footers in the side, needs to get to the outside more. 6
23 WCE Great goal from an intercept in the first term. 5
EF NM Chipped in without starring. Had 12 effective disposals, four clearances. 5
SF Syd Won some ball but butchered it. Only 12 of 22 touches effective. 4
