2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 NM Some iffy moments with ball in hand, and fumbled more than most other Eagles. Can be better than that. 4
2 StK One of the few defenders to stand tall when the heat was on early. His competitive efforts were vital. 7
3 Rich 21 touches, but didn’t really make an impact in the game. 6
4 Syd Surprisingly started across half forward and missed as many targets as he has in defence. Tackled hard. 4
5 Haw Meh! Did a few okay things, but was in and out far too much for a player of his quality. 4
6 Frem Had 22 possessions but he they weren’t impactful. 5
7 Port Was good in defence, played one on one with several opponents and wasn’t afraid to go back with the pack. 6
8 WB Tried to give the team some run out of defence. 6
9 Ess Hobbled by an ankle issue throughout the game and had one to forget. 4
10   Ankle.  
11   Ankle.  
12   Ankle.  
13 WAFL Spent time on Liam Ryan and was okay early, then the Lion got on top. Moved into midfield late and was fair.
14 WAFL Up and down game. More would be expected from a senior player.
15 WB Ran well out of the backline, taking Picken at times, until corked his hip and could not continue. 4
16 Port No impact with the footy. Needs to do more. 4
17   Senior emergency.  
18 WAFL Terrific third quarter helped get his team back into the match. Solid overall.
19 WAFL Fair outing with a mostly clean 22 disposals.
20 WAFL Had 23 touches and six inside 50s. One of the Royals better players on the day.
21 Carl Spent time at both ends after being a late inclusion but didn’t do a lot. 4
22 WAFL Big ball winner with 34 touches, six clearances. Had a hand in a lot of scores.
23 WAFL Putting hand up for finals recall with 30 touches and two goals.
EF   Senior emergency.  
SF GWS Back in the team and stationed forward, then sent back. Was fair, but is that all he’s got to give now? 4

2016 Season

Played for : West Coast

1   Knee.  
2   Knee.  
3   Knee.  
4 WAFL Solid three-quarter return for 17 possessions.
5 Syd Worked hard all day but efficiency of usage not great. 5
6 Coll Kicked a goal but didn’t do much else. 3
7 Geel Certainly not the worst playing behind the ball. Did what he could but amounted to very little. 6
8 StK Looked in injury trouble for a while but came back on to join the party. 7
9 Port Another player not afraid to put his body on the line when required. 7
10 GCS Played at half-forward and gave the team a different look. 6
11 WB Struggled to touch the ball. Seven kicks and eight effective disposals not enough from an experienced player. 3
12 Adel Struggling to have any impact on games at the moment. 3
13 Bris Solid first half and helped set up match winning half time lead. 6
15 Ess Found form with 21 disposals. 6
16 NM Stepped up in the second half. Had some big moments. 6
17 Carl Did what was required without setting world on fire. Three rebound 50s. 6
18 Melb Battled. His use of the footy was poor. 3
19 Coll Horror first half continuing on from awful showing against Dees. Back to the WAFL? 3
20 Frem Looked injured but improved as the game went. 6
21 GWS Took Smith and was OK defensively, but no impact going forward. 4
22 Haw No signs of his foot issues. That’s a good start. Had 17 touches. 5
23 Adel Rebound from defence was crucial in setting up attack after attack. 6
EF WB Half-back option but made some mistakes and offered nought in the way of run. 3

2015 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 WB Work-rate good but couldn’t get enough ball to do any damage offensively. 3
2 Carl Better than in Round 1 but still has more to give as a playmaker. 5
3 Frem Kicked a nice goal but is a million miles away from Collingwood form. 5
4 Bris In the thick of it until half time and then faded. 5
5 GWS Played in defence. Kicked poorly early but improved. 5
6 Port Had the tough task of trying to curb the influence of Wingard. 6
7 GCS No Eagle had more contested possessions. 6
8 StK On Templeton initially and played his part as a defender. 5
9 Geel Looked smart dashing around the packs. Four inside-50s. 6
10 NM When game on line in final term he stepped to the plate with eight disposals. 7
11 Ess Copped a shin injury early but battled on. 5
12 Rich Heavy hit in marking contest in second term but kept running well. 6
14 Melb Regained mojo from Magpie days with run and creativity. Good again. 7
15 Adel Kicked a goal and did some deft work. 5
16 Coll Heavy knock early in game but a handy performer. 5
17 Syd Read the play brilliantly across half back and used the ball with precision. 7
18 GCS Reasonable job in defence. 5
19 Haw Found it tough on Rioli and gave away key free kicks. 4
20 Frem Didn’t have much of an impact. 4
21 WB Worked hard in the undersized defence. 4
22   Ankle.  
23 StK Returned from injury and had 22 touches. Did well. 6
QF Haw Defended superbly. Hard to believe he’s become a reliable defender. 8
PF NM Had to play on bigger opponents and did it brilliantly. Rebounded superbly. 8
GF Haw Unable to halt the Hawks and unable to influence going the other way. 3

2014 Season

Played for : West Coast

1 WB Found plenty of ball and dangerous bursting through the middle. 7
2 Melb Pushed hard forward in rotation with Masten. Influential early. 6
3   Late withdrawal.  
4 Geel Won his share of footy but defensive work/running at times not great. 5
5 Port Struggled to make an impact outside of kicking a goal. 4
6 Carl Battled. Had no real influence on the game. 4
7 WAFL 25 disp, eight marks, seven inside 50s after being dropped.
8 GWS Back in the senior team and was OK without starring. 5
10 Coll One brilliant goal and gave some run – five clearances and five inside-50s. 6
11 NM Bobbed up now and then but no significant influence. 4
12 Haw The sub. Had six touches in the final term but the game was already over. 2
13 GCS One of Ablett’s taggers for first three quarters and stuck to task. 6
14 StK Matched on Hayes initially. OK at times. 5
15 Frem Continues to disappoint at new club. Needs quality around him to thrive. 4
16 Syd Ball use was disappointing and didn’t lay a single tackle on a wet day. Poor. 3

2012 Season

Played for : Collingwood

1 VFL Tagged closely by Selwood. Was a strong performer.
3 Carl Rarely won clean possession in return game; not a factor.. 3
4 Port Tidy 19 touch effort and two goals but disposal efficiency down (58%). 5
5 Ess Won 10 contested possessions and three clearances and inside 50s. 6
6 WB Quiet night for him and often caught out of position. Can play better. 4
7 Bris Never far from the action but often disposing under pressure. 5
8 Geel Dashed in here and there. Effective when he could get hands on the ball. 6
9 Adel One beautiful goal off the ground in the last term as the Pies piled them on. 7
10 GCS Missed some shots at goal but had six inside 50s to keep the pressure on. 7
11 Melb Kept the pressure on when A grade midfield was spelling. Handy second punch. 7
13 WCE Usual good moments and stuck several important tackles, but did fade. 5
14 Frem Helped keep the pressure on in middle – seven clearances, nine inside-50s. 7
15 Carl Had 16 disposals before crude bum on Simpson – only four thereafter. 5
19 StK Dropped some marks he should have snaffled which dulled his influence. 5
20 Syd Proved a tricky customer for the Swans, laying 11 tackles and kicking a goal. 7
21 NM Poor kick across goal proved costly as Tarrant chipped in to kick goal. 4
22 WCE Hurt his hand early. Still laid seven tackles but struggled with the ball. 5
23 Ess Some incisive touches here and there but only a bit role. 4
QF Haw Picked up by Burgoyne. Two nice goals but in and out of the game. 5
SF WCE Provided a back-up to frontline midfield – six clearances and eight tackles. 6
PF Syd Didn’t take the bit between his teeth. Not his sort of game. 4
