2017 Digest:   Looks like starting the season as the first-choice small defender but must maintain solid form or risk losing his place to the likes of Short.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Richmond

1 Carl Quiet night. One kick and will be very nervous about team selection already. 1
4 VFL Did what he wanted down back, but the calibre of the opposition has to be taken into account.
5 VFL 28 disposals playing as a sweeper on a wing to be one of the Tigers better performers.
6 VFL Used in a number of roles but wasn’t able to have a big impact overall.
7 VFL Okay without starring in the first half then sat out the remainder as a senior emergency.
8 VFL Did most of his work on the outside in defence. 24 possessions and seven rebounds.
9 VFL Just the 12 touches and never really got going.

16 StK No input of note whatsoever. 2
17 VFL Made a fair amount of mistakes down back with his 30 disposals, 27 of which were uncontested.

Played for : Richmond

2 Coll Back into the team and looked a step off the pace for much of the evening in midfield. 3

6 VFL Got enough of the ball but wasn’t able hurt Sandringham at all.

10 Ess Former Cat did enough without starring. Used ball very short most times he got it. 5
11 NM No significant impact at all. 2
12 GCS Played down back opposed to Martin and Matera. Didn’t make any glaring mistakes. 5
14 Bris Took Green in back half and gave him too much room early. Clamped down after quarter time. 5

21 Geel Former Cat played well but like so many teammates got swamped in final term. 6
22 StK Plugged away in the back half. Ok without starring as a spare parts defender. 5
23 Syd Among Richmond’s best. Used it very well out of the backline. Eight marks, five rebounds. 7

3 Bris In the thick of it when Richmond laid the foundations for victory. 6
4 Melb Battled hard and kicked a goal but part of a beaten midfield group. 5
5 Geel Former Cat lifted after half time but not a huge factor. 5

4 Syd Shadowed McGlynn and did it well after he got away in the first half. 5

10   Shoulder.  
11   Shoulder.

2012 Season

Played for : Geelong

1 Frem Ran with Hill in a great match up. Did well early but he got away late. 5
2 Haw Great job on Rioli in first half and pushed on to play a part in second. 6
3 NM Battled hard but decision making and skill execution still needs work. 5
4 Rich Tagged Cotchin for a fair portion of day and minimised his efficiency. 5
5 Bris Shadowed 300-gamer Black and kept him to season low 22 disposals. 7
7 Adel Tagged Dangerfield and did a reasonable job given flow of contest. 5
8 Coll When matched to Swan he did OK but for some reason tag wasn’t all match. 3
9 WB Tagged Griffen and limited his effectiveness. 16 disposals and a goal himself. 6
10 GWS Caught got with the ball a few times and only battled for most of the day. 5
11 Carl Ran with Simpson at times and tried to work off him. OK without starring. 5
13 Syd Disposal becoming an issue in his game – failed to hit gettable targets. 4
14 Port Lacked poise and polish with ball in hand and subbed off at last change. 3
15 GCS Shadowed Ablett and did Ok in that role. His long kicking is deplorable. 4
16 Coll Swan tag failed and again ball use/decision making hurt him. 3
17 Ess Ran with Stanton and kept him from being a factor. Worked hard other way. 6
18 Adel Played arguably best half of footy as a Cat in opening half then faded badly. 4
19 Haw Enjoyed a great start but faded badly – only one touch in second half. 3
20 WCE Did well although disposal let him down at times. One nice running goal. 6
21 StK Kicked two goals inside two minutes to start game. Copped knock then faded. 6
23 Syd Ran with a variety of players and OK defensively. Not huge offensively. 4
EF Frem Workrate good but poise and polish were not. Needs to work on kicking. 4
