2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

3   Senior emergency.  
4 Frem Did a good job early on Neale to restrict his impact but the little Docker then got motoring to be a big presence with four goals. 5
5 VFL Bobbed up everywhere in the front half to end with a career-best five goals. Had 32 touches too.
6 Ess Returned to the team and had a few good touches, but wasn’t really a factor overall. 3
7 Haw Never able to impact flow of game or tempo of play. When he gets it not a lot happens despite 20 touches. 4
8 Adel Pushed forward for two goals late in the second term to get the Demons rolling. 6
9 NM Got caught in the grill a few times and missed four chances for goal. Could have been a good day but wasn’t. 4
10 GCS Can’t afford to continually miss shots for goal as a forward. Now has 0.7 in past fortnight. Pressure good though. 5
11   Bye.  
12 Coll Poor first half, but some of his competing in the air and tackling after main break in attack were important. 5
13 WB A pre-game Instagram photo ignited tensions, but he backed up the lip with his actions. Good outing. 7
14 WCE No Instagramming but not a big impact either. 4
15 Syd Crude hit on Mills in first term will earn a long suspension. Then hardly saw the Sherrin. See you in late August. 2
16   Suspended.  
17   Suspended.  
18   Suspended.  
19   Suspended.  
20   Suspended.  
21   Suspended.  
22 VFL Worked into the game after a long layoff and was handy. 24 possessions.
23 VFL Werribee didn’t allow him much space and kept him well in check.

2016 Season

1 GWS Limited impact against his former club playing on a wing with 13 touches. 4
2 Ess Kicked to 50/50s far too often when better options were available. 3
3 NM Not his best day in midfield or across half forward. Made a few errors by foot but tackled hard. 5
4 Coll Racked up possessions at half back and laid team-high nine tackles. Efficiency down a tad. 8
5 Rich Got in the face of the Tigers all night and backed up with steady play. Handy. 5
6 StK Ran hard and was one of the better performed Demons. 6
7 GCS Led the way at the stoppages with eight clearances, and also seven tackles. 8
8 WB Works hard but at times plays like a headless chook at others. Nine tackles. 3
9 Bris Good ball winner from start to finish in midfield. Made a few odd decisions, but strong outing. 7
10 Port Worked through midfield and won a bit of ball but not his most effective performance. 5
11 Haw Played off half back and through middle. OK without setting the world on fire. 5
12 Coll Tagged Sidebottom and kept him to 10 disposals after quarter time. 8
13 Syd Played in midfield and half back. Won a bit of ball but too many small handballs. 5
15 Adel Came off bench to run with Sloane but dropped on and off from run-with role. OK. 5
16 VFL Bye.
17 VFL Not overly influential with just 15 touches in midfield battle.
18 VFL Worked hard in midfield rotation to get ball going Casey’s way.
19   Senior emergency.  
20 Haw Two second-half goals proved crucial and went to Rioli to try to quell him. 6
21 Port Two goals from the midfield while running with Boak and R. Gray for long periods. 7
22 Carl Poor early turnover cost a goal and set the tone. Tried hard but not his best day. 4
23 Geel Horrible performance. Get rid of the ridiculous mo and try to get a kick. 1

2015 Season

Played for : GWS Giants

1 StK Drew ire of Saints’ fans after crude bump on Riewoldt late. Handy effort. 6
2 Melb Tracked Garlett and shut him out after half time. 6
3 Syd Not much went right for the defender who will need to bounce back. 3
4 GCS Battled hard and did all the gritty things a good team needs. 6
5 WCE Laid five tackles but little influence as the backline was under pressure. 5
6 Haw Found it difficult containing the hard-running Smith. 3
7 Carl Tagged Judd then released when GWS had game well in hand. 6
8 Adel Strong in contested situations and pressed forward for handy goal. 6
9 WB In faces as usual but limited effect. 3
10 Bris Followed Zorko and had hands full at times. 4
11 Coll Had Crisp at times and had a dip but not his best day. 4
12 NM Quiet game in defence and unable to quell North forwards. 4

15 NEAFL Steady in midfield group but would have liked more ball.

23 Melb Niggled away all afternoon at Brayshaw then Garlett. 5

2 StK Busy little player and was good at times. 5
3 Melb Always busy and hungry for the ball. 7
4 WB Did well in a few contests and had a good battle with Stevens. 6

14 Carl Struggled to find the ball and didn't use it overly well. 4
15 Syd Again tried to aggravate the Swans while kicking two goals. 6
16 Adel Had tagging role on half back Smith and subdued him. 6
17 Frem Had job on Ballantyne who kicked five goals but weight of footy against hurt. 3
18 Geel Plugged away across half back and was serviceable all night. 6
19 Rich Took Martin when forward and did well enough but the Tiger kicked two. 5
20 NM Clamped onto Harvey and did a great job until half time. The old fella got away then. 6
21 Melb Defensive work superb and took one towering contested mark. 8
22 Coll Shadowed Sidebottom but couldn’t curtail his impact in important moments. 5
23 WB Did a good job on Macrae and got under Bulldogs’ skin to cause melee. 6

2 Port Read play well to gather a share of the footy. 5
3 StK Good contest with Milne and had his share of it. 6
4 Melb Byrnes proved a handful, but battled hard. Came off with a limp late. 5
5 GCS Sub came on at three-quarter time. Crunched late but then kicked good goal. 3
6 Ess A late inclusion. Had his hands full with Davey who was far too nimble. 3
7 NEAFL Struggled to make an impact. Disappointing day.
8 Haw Low key in forward role. 3

18 Coll Found time and space to collect 19 possessions and used the ball fairly well. 6

2 NM Shifted on to the rampant Harvey and did as well as anyone could. 6
3 WCE Did a good job down back on Hill and collected 27 touches. 7
4 Adel Wet and slippery conditions didn’t suit his game; was OK. 5
5 WB Ball magnet who keeps finding the footy. 7
6 Carl Struggled a little on previous week’s effort but kept battling all day. 5
7 GCS One of his quieter games for the year, looks a player and will bounce back. 3
9 Ess Another solid defensive effort with four tackles and 85 per cent efficiency. 6
10 Geel Didn’t have an impact of note down back but certainly didn’t disgrace himself. 4
12 Rich Even effort highlighted by good disposal – laid eight tackles. 6
