2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 WB Usual volume of clean, high-quality disposals, including two late goals that gave Pies a sniff. 8
2 Rich Usual proportion of deft touches among 32 disposals; almost dragged his teammates over the line with a superb final term. 8
3 Syd Despite Magpies strong start, was quieter than normal but then played a pivotal role in what was a famous win. 7
4 StK Like midfield teammates the Saints’ pressure forced him to handball a lot (19 of 25 possessions). 5
5 Ess Started forward but like Adams unable to hit the scoreboard. As lacking for form as he’s ever been in his career. 4
6 Geel Skipper rose to the challenge yet again against Cats to grab 33 disposal, six inside-50s, nine tackles and a goal. 8
7 Carl Often had problems with Curnow on his wheel. Disposal efficiency a little down, but kept setting teammates into space. 6
8 GWS Subdued game in the middle, perhaps somewhat distracted by off-field prospects. 4
9 Haw Did his darndest to lift his team back into game (36 touches, nine tackles, 13 score involvements) and eventually succeeded. 9
10 Bris Skipper helped keep the pressure on with eight tackles, nine inside-50s, one goal and a goal assist; 31 disposals. 8
11 Frem Classy. Had 30 disposals. Could have kicked a bag but finished with 1.3. 8
12 Melb Skipper picked a bad day to have a quiet one. Only mustered 13 effective disposals, three inside-50s and no goals. 6
13   Bye.  
14 Port Racked up 20 possessions and six inside-50s in the opening half. Held to a degree in second half by Wingard. Solid. 8
15 Haw In game 250 got tagged out of the game by Howe in first half and couldn’t find any life after half time. Fatherhood? 3
16 Ess Skipper tried hard but lots of short handpasses and looked a little sluggish; 29 possessions, seven inside-50s. 6
17 GCS Gathered usual quota of the footy, but uncharacteristically sloppy with disposal. 6

2016 Season

1 Syd Operated in a phone box throughout. Played inside game but unable to set teammates into space. 5
2 Rich Played behind the ball for first three quarters then pushed into midfield at the death. Great early. 7
3 StK Used across half back for first three quarters but didn’t hurt the Saints to any great degree. Tried hard. 6
4 Melb Went into the midfield but restricted to one inside-50. Eleven of his disposals came in second term. 6
5 Ess Huge first half (23 disp) set up the victory and from there coasted home. Big effort. 8
6 WCE Looked sore so handballed instead of kicking. Still had 29 touches. 7
7 Carl Started at half forward then worked way into middle. 34 touches and used nearly all of them well. 8
8 Bris More than a dozen touches in first term. Instrumental in the destruction. 8
9 Geel Helped get side off to a flyer in first half and kept foot on throttle. Three goals, four clearances. 8
10 WB Generated continual attacks and showed the way. His team’s best. 8
11 Port Kicked first goal and had 30 touches. Steady game without being at his very best. 7
12 Melb Stats ok but impact on flow of game limited. Copped injury which hampered him. 5
13   Ankle.  
14 Frem Not his usual effective self and coach revealed he was ill. 5
15 Carl Enjoyed the freedom of no tag. Gathered a game-high eight clearances and 14 CPs. 8
16 GWS Read the play well and a constant accumulator of touches. 6
17 Adel Typical Pendles performance. Created several scoring opportunities. 7
18 NM High efficiency but it was a battle throughout for clear space. 7
19 WCE Led from the front superbly in midfield with six clearances, 15 contested possessions. 8
20 Rich Struggled until final term before kicked goal. Then injured ankle and night was over. 5
21 WB Strong first quarter and although handy was not usual dominant self after that. 5
22 GCS Did as he pleased in midfield but had great support from Treloar and co. Strong outing. 7
23 Haw Used footy with some creativity and got others into the game. Seven clearances. 8

2015 Season

1 Bris Good all night but especially in third term when Magpies set up win. 6
2 Adel Massive first half where he had it on a string. A little quieter after main break. 7
3 StK Ticked over beautifully. Preference for handball may have been due to injury. 7
4 Ess Worked all over the ground to help his side. Team-high 15 CPs. 7
5 Carl Did as he pleased for the entire four quarters. Had even more time than usual. 8
6 Geel All sorts of problems with Blicavs early but found a way to influence game. 5
7 Rich Excellent early but held later – no clearances and only two inside-50s. 5
8 GCS A milestone to remember: 35 touches and three goals. A class above. 9
9 NM Quiet opening half but got going a bit in third term. Solid outing. 6
10 Melb Racked up the stats but wasn’t a hugely damaging player forward of centre. 6
11 GWS Influential in early exchanges and probably Pies best. Treloar went to him late. 8
13 Frem Huge first term (11 disp) then OK. Seemed a little hampered thereafter. 6
14 Haw Picked up by Langford and dictated terms. Hodge couldn’t stop him either. 9
15 Port Clean with the footy when many weren’t. 7
16 WCE Usual constant driving force around ground though rarely got free. 7
17 WB Opening goal in first 10 seconds then entered into great battle with Picken. 7
18 Melb Spent time at full forward to try to give the team a spark. Toiled hard. 7
19 Carl 14 first-term touches but had greater impact on game in final three quarters. 8
20 Syd Handballs were double his kicks. Off his game, and looks to be carrying injury. 5
21 Rich Plugged away for five clearances, six inside-50s and 11 CPs. Didn’t lay a tackle. 6
22 Geel Took control of game off half back and kept foot on the throat throughout. 8
23 Ess Showed a complete lack of interest in the game all day. Worst game of the year. 3

2014 Season

1 Frem Had a bit of footy and creative in spurts but Crowley (two goals) kept him under reasonable wraps. 7
2 Syd Quiet in the first term, he still managed to finish as best on the ground. 9
3 Geel Shadowed by Guthrie and impact down – three clearances, two inside-50s. 6
4 Rich Started game in fine touch and didn’t ease up. In amazing form already. 8
5 NM Relished freedom to be instrumental with a goal, six inside-50s, 11 cont poss. 8
6 Ess Huge in getting side back into game. Five clearances, 16 contested possessions. 7
7 Carl Thomas went on to him in second half but he kept humming along. 7
9 Adel Great first half netted 19 touches then nullified. Only nine kicks. 7
10 WCE Great battle with Selwood. Well held until final term when he cut loose. 8
11 StK Calm and consistently damaging especially in final term. 7
12 Melb On fire early with 11 first-quarter disposals that steadied side. Among the best. 7
13 WB Tough game with 30 possessions, including 18 that were contested. 7
14 Haw Typically classy performance from the skipper. 8
15 Carl Two first-quarter goals set side on way to victory. Eleven tackles to boot. 7
16 GCS Never stopped running to keep his side in the contest. 7
17 Ess Closely tracked by Hocking. Usage by foot well down in first half. Contained. 5
18 Adel Clearance work handy and won 11 contested possessions. Handy. 7
19 Port Industrious around ball but interestingly didn’t have an inside-50. No goals. 7
20 WCE Provided 11 clearances and 17 contested possessions despite Hutchings tag. 7
21   Quad.  
22 GWS Stood up like a good captain should with the chips down. Influential. 7
23 Haw Every time he got it he looked a class above teammates. 6

2013 Season

1 NM Big first half with 19 touches and was a constant source of drive. 8
2 Carl Tagged by Carrazzo in a sign of respect from former coach. Big after half time. 7
3 Haw Midfield architect dished up a solid effort but did try to do too much at times. 6
4 Rich Racked 16 handballs but seemed to have a more defensively minded brief. 6
5 Ess Tagged by Hocking but won 15 contested poss, six inside-50s and two goals. 8
6 StK Tagged by Jones but worked into game to play a pivotal third term. 8
7 Frem Crowley made life tough for him but he kept on trucking to be productive. 6
8 Geel Ran riot in the first half (19 disposals) then important again in final term. A key. 8
9 Syd Got away from O’Keefe in first term. Often a lone hand. 7
10 Bris Cut up the Lions in transition; towelled Raines in close early. 7
11 Melb Quietly went about fashioning 12 cont poss, 6 clearances and 5 tackles. 8
12 WB Did as he liked in first half and didn’t relent in final hour. 8
14 Port Won plenty of the footy but turned it over far too many times. 6
15 Carl Tagged by Cachia but six inside-50s, seven clearances, 11 tackles. 8
16 Adel Tracked by Van Berlo at first. Constantly productive to top 40 touches first time. 9
17 GCS Accumulated the footy but didn't have much influence. 6
18 GWS Not a huge influence but important touches when needed. Whiley tracked him. 6
19 Ess Shadowed by Hocking but had seven inside-50s, six tackle, three clearances. 7
20 Syd Laid tackles, sent the ball inside 50, gathered clearances and kicked a goal. Outstanding. 9
21 Haw Not as damaging as he can be, and was forced to handball more than kick. Still decent. 6
22 WCE Tagged by Selwood in parts but that didn’t stop him. 8
23 NM Won 13 cont poss, four inside-50s, four tackles and two goals. Superb. 8
EF Port Shadowed by Cassisi and slightly down but still had six inside 50s. Efficiency high. 6

2012 Season

1 Haw Dragged side back into contest in third term; 33 quality touches. 9
2 Rich Had 17 touches to half time and won the ball with ease all night. 7
3 Carl Blanketed by Carrazzo early. Worked into second half but too late. 3
4 Port Rebounded to grab 29 disposals (13 contested) and five clearances. 7
5 Ess Despite Hocking tag (at times) a driving force – 34 disp., five clearances. 8
6 WB Awarded Rose-Sutton Medal for another superb accumulator’s performance. 8
7 Bris Raines wrapped him up in first term but off the leash when he went to Swan. 7
8 Geel Superb early and late, despite corkie. Four goals and six tackles. 9
9 Adel Outstanding. Not the captain but leads the midfield brilliantly. 8
10 GCS Injury scare early but returned to play a role before subbed out at half time. 4
16 Geel Didn’t miss a beat – four inside-50s, five tackles and four clearances. 8
17 Haw Had good numbers but only three clearances and four inside-50s. 7
18 GWS Continued his incredibly consistent three weeks since returning from injury. 7
19 StK Game high 11 clearances iced another quality midfield display. 8
20 Syd Got his hands on the ball regularly but didn’t have quite his usual influence. 6
21 NM Champ got enough of the footy with 24 disposals, but looks sore. 6
22 WCE Typically good. Won lots of contested ball, kicked a goal, but ball use a bit off. 8
23 Ess Running machine in centre. 7
QF Haw In everything in first quarter and sound through to the end. 7
SF WCE Brilliant in middle gathering touches, using them well and setting up others. 8
PF Syd Cool and sharp all the way through. 7
