2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Easily his best outing for Brisbane. Bobbed up in attack and booted a career best three goals. 6
2 Ess Was in the thick of the action for three quarters but faded slightly when needed in final term. 6
3 NEAFL 35 possessions, 10 marks, eight clearances and five inside-50s highlight what was a huge outing.
4 NEAFL Taken off after playing an excellent opening half. 15 possessions.
5 WB Worked super hard but gets caught a lot and doesn’t have the spark to break away. Seven tackles but eight effective disposals. 2
6 NEAFL Bye.
7 NEAFL Can hold his head high. 28 touches, nine tackles and two goals in loss. Just had little support.
8 NEAFL One of the Lions best in tight loss to Redland with 33 touches and nine clearances.
9 NEAFL Superb effort in midfield. Won the ball inside and out and had good balance to his game.
10 Coll No influence on the game with 12 scrappy disposals and seven tackles. Will he hold his spot? 3
11   Bye.  
12 Frem Did well off a wing and was a linkman out of defence, taking five uncontested marks. 5
13 Port The Lions leading goal kicker with three including two in the first term. 7
14 GWS Improved performance off a wing and even finished a couple of goals. 6
15 Ess Usual gritty and whole-hearted display in middle. Kicked crucial goal late. 5
16 Geel Had a forgettable stint on Blicavs in defence before bagging three goals to turn his own fortunes around. 6
17 Rich Some nice touches and was neat in front of goal, but has to get more of the footy. 6
18 Carl Threatened early to play a big part. Only performed in patches though, despite the Lions overall dominance. 5
19 WCE Had five clearances in his 28 possessions. Also kicked a goal. 7
20 WB In the action a lot. Snagged two goals but there are times when his kicking lets him down. Half of his 12 kicks were ineffective. 5
21 GCS Was prone to making errors but got better as game progressed. 6
22 Melb Battled hard for 22 disposals, one goal and three tackles. Not a really penetrating player. 6
23 NM Kept battling away n defensive role. 4

2016 Season

1 WCE Showed courage and worked hard to win the ball. 5
2 NM Worked hard through the middle and used the footy well. 5
3 Geel Ran with Selwood at times and that task proved beyond him. Four clearances and one inside-50. 5
4 GCS Battled along until coming alive in last quarter. Last quarter goal sealed victory. 5
5 WB Worked hard despite the tide flowing in the opposite direction after an early injury scare. 6
6 Syd Deserves to start next time around after hearty effort. 6
7 Port Unassuming performance, won plenty of footy without hurting the opposition. 7
8 Coll Used in various on-ball roles with some effect. 5
9 Melb Won some ball but didn’t hurt the Dees to any great degree. Under pressure a lot. 4
10 Haw Clearance work at stoppages the only highlight in a quiet performance. 4
11 Carl Returned to some form with 20 touches and seven tackles. Battled on well. 6
12 Frem Tried to be an option through the midfield and booted a goal. 5
13 WCE Started as the “seventh” man in defence. One of his better games for the Lions. 6
14 Rich Got a bit of ball in midfield but didn’t really hurt Richmond with many of his touches. 5
16 GCS Struggled to get involved with just the 12 possessions. 3
17 GWS For someone with more than 130 games experience, he lacked presence. Looked lost. 4
18 Ess Workmanlike game in middle and pushed forward for snap goal. Steady contributor. 7
19 Port One of his better games this season but still found wanting at times. 6
20 Adel Laid 12 tackles and had seven clearances. Tried hard throughout. 7
21 Carl One of his best games for the Lions. Showed courage when marking a high ball in defence. 7
22 Geel Five clearances and three inside-50s but made a few mistakes with ball in hand. 6
23 StK For someone of his experience a greater input would be expected. 4

2015 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Adel Broke the tide on 10 unanswered goals from the Crows. 5
3 Port Escaped sub vest but didn’t make the most of it. A bit one-paced. 5
4 Geel Went to Selwood in second term and good on him around stoppages. 5
5 Haw Did some good things early but impact waned as game wore on. 4
6 Rich Sub. On late in game when it was all over and grabbed a few touches. 4
7 Ess Not huge with two clearances and two inside-50s. Handy. 5
8 Frem Won four clearances, so was at the coalface. Tried hard. 6
9 Coll OK in midfield but lacks a yard when needed. 5
10 WCE Won some ball backward of centre. Last term very good. 6
11 Syd Won a lot of possessions deep in defence and didn’t hurt the Swans. 4
12 VFL Back to ball-winning ways with 29 possessions in win.
13 VFL Bye.
14 VFL Starred in North Ballarat defeat with 34 disposals, 15 clearances.
15 Geel Four clearances, five inside-50s and a mountain of possession in solid game. 7
16 Ess One of his better games this year. Good with ball in hand and hit scoreboard. 7
17 Bris Last-quarter goal capped off a solid night. 6
18 Carl In and out of the game without a big impact. 4
19 VFL Decent response to AFL axing with 21 disposals.
20 VFL Huge. 44 disposals, 10 marks, seven clearances, one goal.
21 Frem On as sub at last change and got involved. 2
22 WB Active in first half. High ratio of handballs. 4
23 Rich Keen to impress and make the most of his chance . 6

2014 Season

Played for : North Melbourne

1 Ess No great impact but tried hard. 5
2 WB Flashed in and out of play. Needs to make most of chances near big sticks. 5
3 Port Ran hard to spread providing an outlet for the backs. 6
4 Syd A little bit down on his usual production. 5
5 Coll Five clearances but only one inside-50 and very little impact. 5
6 Frem Strong worker in close around the contests. 6
7 GCS Struggled to get his hands on the ball enough around the stoppages. 5

10 Geel Sub. On for second half and showed up some teammates. Two goals. 4
11 WCE In the thick of the action and had a good night. 6
12 Rich Two goals but another who is struggling a little to find his best. 5
13 Adel Pushed forward for a goal in the last quarter after a soft free kick. 5
14 Melb Two clearances and four inside-50s but never a huge factor. 5
15 Bris Huge first term with 10 touches. Then just nine more for the game. 6
16 Haw Solid contributor in midfield and kicked a handy goal. 6
17 StK Without having a tagging role he was able to let his game flow. 7
18 Carl Had run with role on Murphy in first half then shifted. 4
19 Geel Horrendous first half then lifted to grab 13 disposals in third term. 6
20 GWS One of his better games this season. Won plenty of ball and used it well. 7
21 WB Strong at the contest all through. 6
22 Adel Reined in Dangerfield in second half. 6
23 Melb Didn’t have big numbers but used ball well and found space. 6

5 Haw Carried out his run-with roles well. 5
6 Port Not only blotted out Hartlett but also won plenty of the footy. 8

8 WCE Usual strong effort and blunted opposing midfielders without much the other way. 6
9 Adel OK but when game was on he only had one disposal in final term. 4
10 StK Started in great touch. On Steven. 6
11 GCS Not his night. 4
13 Frem Tireless worker against the odds. 6
14 GWS Kicked a nice goal and added five clearances and nine contested possessions. 6

17 Carl Good battle with Murphy and did some good things. 6
18 Melb Hit the scoreboard with a career-high four goals and laid five tackles. 7

21 Ess Ran with Heppell initially until Bomber was injured. Usual important game. 6
22 Haw Booted successive goals on Burgoyne midway through third quarter. 6
23 Coll Huge. No Magpie seemed interested in picking him up at any stage. 8
