2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 GCS Booted a first quarter goal but did little else throughout the match, finishing with just the 10 possessions. 3
2 Ess Spilled several marks in first half but notably picked up his game after long break 4
3 StK In and out of the game and missed a few chances. 4
4 Rich Used in attack and on the wing and did a few notable things but possibly not enough for a player in his sixth season. 4
5 NEAFL Worked hard to press his claims for a senior recall. Good outing.
6 NEAFL Bye.
7 NEAFL Okay early and kicked a goal. Sat out second half as a senior emergency.
8 Haw Did the inside work as he always does, but just lacks any class to become a legitimate threat. 4
9 Adel Skill errors, slow to react and overall had a forgetful night. 4
10 NEAFL Strong contributor with 32 possessions, six clearances and six inside 50s.
11   Bye.  
12 NEAFL One of his better games this year. Had 29 possessions, but also tackled well and was good at stoppages.
13 NEAFL A bull around the stoppages. Too big and strong for Southport to handle.
14 NEAFL Hard worker until bad leg injury in final term ended his day.

2016 Season

1 WCE Strong around contests and set up scoring opportunities. 6
2 NM Could only muster 13 possessions. Lions needed more from him. 4
3 Geel Former Blue battled hard to provide a spark. Six inside-50s and two goals a good reward. 7
4 GCS Impressive work-rate early and largely why Brisbane was still in at long break. 7
5 WB 19 possessions but they were often wayward and didn’t hit the target. Not his best night. 5
6 Syd Soldiered on although downside is that he failed to kick a goal in an attacking role. 6
7 Port Dropped two marks in the third term which would have led to shots on goal. 6
8 Coll Tried to get into the game by running hard at packs. Overall disappointing. 4
9 Melb Kicked three goals, including two in the second term to be leading goalkicker. 6
10 Haw A real positive up forward with three of his four goals coming in the second term. 6
11 Carl Fumbled badly and had one to forget against his former club. 2
12 Frem Spent most of the night in attack but not dangerous enough 2

22 Geel Looked dangerous at times lurking up forward. Ended day with two goals. 6
23 StK OK at times and fought hard against the tide of the game. 4

2015 Season

Played for : Carlton

1 Rich Worked hard all night and never stopped running. 7
2 WCE Great running goal early and a few dashing runs but wasted ball at times. 5
3 Ess Tried hard but under pressure a lot and only two inside-50s. 4
4 StK Vital goals in third quarter and used strength to good effect. 7
5 Coll Good in patches but kicking unreliable. 6
6 Bris Among Carlton’s best. Attacked when he could and won plenty of ball. 7
7 GWS Battled hard but wasn’t a major factor in midfield or up forward. 4
8 Geel One clearance. One tackle. 4
9 Syd Worked hard to be a link player and never stopped trying. Among best. 6
10 Adel Work-rate huge but let himself down with poor disposal too often. 5
12 Port Disposal let him down at times but work-rate enormous. Four inside-50s. 7
13 GCS Racked up stats and worked hard to win the ball in close. Among best. 8
14 WB Even battle with fellow big-bodied mid Bontempelli. 6
15 Rich Tried hard but only four inside-50s and some average disposal. 5
16 Frem Influential. Kicked two goals, laid seven tackles. 7
17 Haw Used forward for periods without success. One long goal a highlight. 4
18 NM Went toe to toe with Ziebell and was resoundingly beaten. 4
19 Coll Used his big frame and power well at stages but kicking was agricultural. 6
20 Bris Worked hard first three quarters before fading. 7
21 Melb Stationed forward for a lot of the day and gave his all. Solid throughout. 6
22 GWS One of the few Blues’ to continued to battle hard throughout the game. 6
23 Haw Battled hard all evening against the tide. Is it his last game in Navy Blue? 6

Played for : Carlton

1 Port Strong first quarter then dropped away. Subbed off in last term. 4
2 Rich Handy toiler in midfield and won six clearances. 6
3 Ess Sub. Why he didn’t start is anyone’s guess. Buzzed around late in the game. 2
4 VFL Responded well to being dropped with a strong midfield effort.

17 Syd Drove the Blues forward with a team-high seven inside-50s. 5
18 NM Did a few things but not a big impact. 3
19 Frem Struggled then charged with shadowing Fyfe in final term. That was tough. 2
20 GCS A breakout performance by the 23-year-old. 19 disposals, four goals.. 8
21 Geel Strong work around ball a feature of his game. Five inside-50s to boot. 6
22 Port Persisted all game with little reward. 5
23 Ess Worked hard and won a bit of the pill but could have used it better. 5
