2017 Digest:   Any plans to return the former No.1 pick to a forward role are shelved due to injuries to the ruck department. Going well.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Coll Contested strongly as the only recognised ruckman in the side but overwhelmed and giving away frees by the end. 3
2 Syd Apart from one screamer and goal he was really quiet. Five effective disposals. 2
3 Frem A vastly improved game on his first two weeks. Had a presence around the ground with 17 disposals. 6
4 NM Head clash forced him from field in first term and did not return. One disposal. 0
5 Bris One kick for one goal in first half. Okay third term but then drifted out of the game again late. Form a concern for coach. 3
6 GWS Mumford tried to get under his skin and struggled. Had chance to win game late but shanked set-sot for goal. 3
7 Rich Went into orthodox ruck role in second quarter and had an impact after half time 6
8 WCE Some good steps in the ruck. Won 34 hit-outs. No marks though. 5
9 Geel Big man threatened at times with two goals and some towering contested marks. Good effort playing No. 1 ruck. 7
10 StK Low key job around the field, but kicked strong goal in final term. Longer outdid he and Roughead in ruck duels 4
11   Bye.  
12 VFL Back.
13 Melb Struggled. Four kicks, one goal and very little presence around the ground. Where to from here? 3

2016 Season

1 Frem Got his hands to plenty of marks, but could hold on to most. Goalkicking was hit and miss. 4
2 StK Kicked three goals, provided a presence in attack. Bulldog fans will be thrilled with improvement. 6
3 Haw Worked well in the ruck but limited impact up forward. Just the one goal. 6
4 Carl Really quiet in ruck or up forward. Form has to be a concern. Appeared to injury arm/wrist late. 2
5   Shoulder.  
6   Shoulder.  
7   Shoulder.  
8   Shoulder.  
9   Shoulder.  
10   Shoulder.  
11 VFL OK without starring in return from injury. Will need to find form quickly.
12 VFL Six marks (two contested) but no goals rotating forward and midfield.
13 VFL Three goals and two solid contested marks a handy return. Didn’t dominate though.
14 VFL Bye.
15 VFL Shrugged off controversy to kick four goals from three marks in tough conditions.
16 VFL Tried hard but six effective disposals isn’t going to get it done. One goal.
17 GCS Did some good things up forward and in the ruck. 4
18 StK Few touches in first half. Guaranteed of spot now Redpath gone. 3
19 Geel Three goals and competed hard up forward despite the presence of Lonergan. 6
20 NM Couldn’t fire in attack but stiff to have one mark disallowed. 3
21 Coll Swapping from ruck to forward with Roughead. Not a big impact. 3
22 Ess Picked up by Hartley initially. Did plenty of rucking and was satisfactory. 5
23 Frem Hurt his ankle early. Came back on but had limited impact. 4
EF WCE No goals but provided a strong contest in attack and was handy in ruck stints. 6
SF Haw Frawley picked him up early. Happy to feed ball out to runners. Solid game. 6
PF GWS When Roughead injured in first term he was right on the line and responded well. 6
GF Syd Came of age in remarkable manner with strong marking and work in the ruck. Three goals too. 9

2015 Season

1 WCE Kicked a key goal in final term after a quiet opening three quarters. 4
2 Rich Beaten by Rance. Learning curve continues but all good experience. 2
3 Haw Three nice goals on Lake who was outclassed at times. A real positive. 5
4 Adel Talia matched up on him. Couple of goals and had run in ruck 4
5 Syd Stats modest but fact he contributed two goals in the wet was pivotal. 5
6 StK Towering early, but goalkicking was Cloke-like. Drifted from the game. 3
7 Frem Got the better of A.Pearce in the end and is growing with each week. 6
8 Melb Didn’t have a kick and subbed out in third term. 1
9 GWS Creating contests first half and is progressing well. 4
10 Port In no-man’s land at the moment, a spell in the reserves is on the cards. 1
