2017 Digest:   Diminutive playmaker has been a leader over summer and his pre-season form has been strong. Looks ready to take a big step.

2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Bris One of the few Suns to turn in a four quarter effort. A little wasteful with his chances on goal. 8
2 GWS Got his hands on the ball enough – 27 possessions – but didn’t have a massive impact on the contest. 6
3 Haw In and under the packs to dish out handball to his teammates. 6
4 Carl Battled hard in midfield to play a part without starring. A lot of his work was done by hand. 6
5 Adel Had his hands full trying to contain the Crows mids. Battled well throughout. 5
6 NM Even game and bounced back up after heavy knock the head from Hansen. Consistent ball winner all through. 6
7 Geel One goal, seven tackles, one inside-50 and 12 contested possessions. Didn’t star but played his role. 6
8 Port Did some good things in first half, then disappeared from the game. 4
9   Bye.  
10 Melb Just the two kicks – 17 handballs, and lacked impact in middle battle. 4
11 WCE Just the two kicks amongst his 19 possessions; did plenty of in and under stuff in his milestone match. 4
12   Ill.  
13   Bye.  
14 StK Moments of brilliance with speed and ball handling but disposal wavered. Corked a thigh. 6
15 NM Spent time on Higgins and Atley to curtail their influence, and did his job. 5
16 Syd 24 touches after coming off the bench. Tried hard. 6
17 Coll Handy without starring. Disposal efficiency not great. 4
18 WB Got a bit of the ball, but wasn’t super influential with his possessions. 5
19 Rich Booted opening goal of the match, and spent time shadowing Martin through the middle. 4
20 Frem Collected 20 possessions but only four were kicks. Under pressure a lot. 5
21 Bris On fire early with 18 touches by half time. Not as influential when momentum shifted Lions way. 7
22 Ess Shadowed Merrett for the most part and kept his influence down. 6
23 Port Another Suns midfielder who didn’t apply enough pressure on his opponents. 2

2016 Season

1 Ess Predominantly played in attack and could have finished with more than one goal. 6
2   Ankle.  
3   Foot.  
4 Bris Always thereabouts but no goals and his opponent Cutler kicked two. 6
5 NM Applied some good pressure in the front half. 5
6 Geel Never got into the contest in any way. Two inside-50s only contribution. 1
7 Melb Got plenty of the footy and applied great defensive pressure. 6
8 GWS Very quiet day with just three kicks from 10 disposals. 2
9   Ankle.  
10   Ankle.  
11 Syd Mostly utilised across half forward and was lively and involved. 6
12 Rich Struggled to offer anything. Half-time interview with broadcaster only highlight. 2
14 Haw Stats modest but did a few nice things. Got to persevere with the playmaker. 4
15 StK Rotated through midfield and half forward and was OK. 5
16 Bris Took best afield honours with 27 possessions and 11 tackles while on Rockliff. 9
17 WB Had no issue finding it, but needed to be more polished with ball use. 5
18 Frem Continued his good form with 28 possessions. 7
19 Melb Great first half then petered out a tad but kept battling. Nine tackles, five clearances. 7
20 GWS Did a lot of the hard in and under work amongst his 24 possessions. 6
21 Ess Fumbly at times but brought own ball in midfield to finish with 39 possessions. 8
22 Coll Backed up last week’s game with another good effort in midfield. Standing up. 7
23 Port Ran the game out well to finish with 28 possessions. 8

2015 Season

1 Melb Small forward couldn’t get into the contest. One late goal only highlight. 2
2 StK Bobbed up a few times but still a way to go. 3
3 Geel Handy performance highlighted by a goal, five tackles and three inside-50s. 6
4 GWS His best outing yet and showed what can be done with hard work. 6
5 Bris Second and third efforts were a highlight. 5
6 Adel Handled the footy cleanly and put ball inside 50 five times. 6
7 WCE Fantastic game. Showed grit and effort. The best story of the night for the club. 7
8 Coll Energetic up forward but failed to take opportunities. 4
9 Haw Showed a bit at times in attack. 5
10 Syd Appears the season is starting to take its toll, looks fatigued. 3
11 Frem Booted a goal and energetic around forward 50. 5
13 Carl Couldn’t get into the game. A few cheapies late in the contest. 3
14 NM Pushed hard to present and forward pressure was great. 4
15 WB Worked up into midfield from half forward. Continued good debut season. 6
16 GWS Involved from go to whoa. Booted two goals and was everywhere. 8
17 Adel Three scoring assists, four tackles and three inside-50s for busy midfielder. 5
18 WCE Relished more midfield time, and accumulated plenty of the footy. 8
19 Bris Dangerous at ground level. 6
20 Rich Couldn’t get into game at all and never a factor. 2
21 Ess Tackling pressure was fantastic. Not as prolific getting the footy. 5
22 Port Solid in the midfield and ran out the match well. 6
23 Syd Played on-ball for a lot of night and moved well to create play. Steady. 6
